As we were talking about our childhoods, we discovered that
we both had a mutual friend who loved to play this video game called Uncharted Waters.
The video game centers on the adve
ntures of 6~7 explorers who set out to explore the new horizons of the world during the Age of Explor
ation from the 15th century to the 18th century.
The interface makes it just a game (quite like Pokemon actually with the 2D aerial view). However, as students of history and having read about the actual Age of Exploration (Click here to read about it), we are filled with admiration of what men like Magellan, Vasco Da Gama, Francisco De Almeida, faced and triumphed over.
The main, recognizable theme of the Uncharted Waters game by Yoko Kanno, named ‘Mast in the Mist’ is an incredible, touching music piece that we believe captures this spirit of boldness, and the wish for dreams for big new worlds and adventures.
We share the piece because we believe that it is our duty to make sure that the spirit of exploration, adventure, and courage to face and triumph over odds stays alive and well.
Whether it is about a mission to Mars or individual’s push to explore his or her physical/mental limits may ‘Mast in the Mist’ remind them that they have ancestors that accomplished what seemed impossible.
