)? Sound off in the comments or shoot me an e-mail with your thoughts!

As a special note, Chiptune in “1 bit part” of the trailer is made by 8 Bit Weapon and song is “Closer (Bitpop Mix)” (www.8bitweapon.com )
8 Bit weapon are Seth & Michelle and they have performed across two continents with their arsenal of 8 bit weapons. Inspired by classic videogame soundtracks and electronic music from the 70s and 80s, 8 Bit Weapon delivers a sound that is as unique as it is original. Clever melodies, nostalgic atmosphere, and energetic beats create a decidedly modern sound while maintaining a fun, lo-tech aesthetic. So we thought that in order to boost the theme we included their great song in the trailer! :D Check also other tunes.
