System Era’s “Astroneer” Video Game Lunar Trailer, with The Hit House’s Trailer Music, Announced An In-Game Event Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of NASA’s Historic Apollo 11 Mission!

What better way to celebrate the brave pioneers that inspired a generation of space explorers, & arguably the Astroneer Video Game, than with an In-Game Tribute Event? System Era knew that given Astroneer is all about the 25th Century’s Intergalactic Age of Discovery, where Gamers explore the frontiers of outer space, a tribute to the heroes of Apollo 11 was a must. To combine an homage to the past along with a thrilling exploration of the digital present, set in a galactic future, System Era needed the ideal tone for its launch trailer, so The Hit House delivered the perfect one with composer Jeffrey Hepker’s track The Blue Jay, from our DAWN Rising Album. This was a particularly exciting project as The Hit House was able to contribute to Astroneer’s Release Trailer earlier this year.

Astroneer is a video game created on the Unreal Engine 4 for PC’s Steam & also Xbox One. In it the aerospace industry’s dominant conglomerate Exo Dynamics, opens flights for citizens of earth to allow them to explore new frontiers, develop undiscovered worlds, & seek their fortunes. The players, as Astroneers, explore distant planets & terraform them while avoiding dangerous flora, conquering treacherous terrain, & discovering the secrets of mysterious structures, all in order to become the wealthiest voyagers amongst the stars.

When 50 years ago, on July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong confirmed the Apollo Lunar Module landing on the moon with, “Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed,” the earth’s collective imagination was stirred to dream of adventures not only beyond our mere terrestrial realm, but also of stories of & lives lived amongst the stars. To this multitude of stories & plots the players of Astroneer can add their mark. By the same token, when next you’re looking to leave your imprimatur upon a video game or movie trailer & you simply need the perfect sound design, trailer music, or music supervision, no need to search among the stars, for The Hit House is already here on terra firma waiting for your call.
