Mark Echo’s Getting Up…..

Marc Ecko’s getting up is one of my favorite games of all time for one reason, that reason being the games main focus, “the suppression of creativity”. This game was more to me than just the game and now looking back on it I realized did it taught me more then I actually thought. For me being a kid playing this game, and seeing the main character fighting to have the creative control to spread his artwork throughout his neighborhood to be recognized and to be known as one of the greatest to ever touch a paint can was a real inspiration. The sound design in this 2 minute cut scene isn’t the best but it does a fantastic job of encompassing the actual meaning of the game, the spray can sounds are somewhat repetitive, and in some places the composed music gets to loud. The music was composed by one of Wu-tang clan’s founding members and one of the most gifted producers of hip hop of the last two decades “The RZA”. The dialogue is pretty minimal in this cutscene but throughout the game itself and many of the other cut scenes, it’s spot on. The main character is voiced by Talib kwali one of the greatest rappers of all times. This cut scene was unique to me because it shows the main characters triumph in the end.
