This is one of the two ingame themes that I composed for Thief of Passion, a cancelled puzzle platform game made by former students of the German Games Academy where I also did all of the coding.
The gameplay is divided into two phases - in one you create a plan on a blueprint, in the other one you just watch the protagonist execute it. As you can switch freely between the phases I decided to create two versions of the same song (so you can just switch or fade between the phases without annoying changes in the music).
This is obviously the version that I created for the execution phase. As in this phase the game features visuals in an 80's style I tried to underline this with this simple groove. The whole composition however is strongly inspired by popular themes from franchises about thieves and secret agents such as James Bond - I was particularly inspired the Moby's rendition of the James Bond theme.
