Herkimer Budd's Theme

The Odd Gentlemen continue to take Music Monday very seriously. Today we’ve got Herkimer Budd’s musical theme. Herkimer is the patriarch of the Budd family. He’s a proud and classy man who loves his family. He also loves to unwind with a glass of cognac. Heck, make that two glasses. After a drink, or three, Herkimer loses a little bit of his no-nonsense attitude and becomes quite annoying. If you were a ghost who lived in Wayward Manor,  would you be pleased with all the ruckus?

We’ve been posting the musical themes for some of Wayward Manor’s residents. Which one is your favorite?

Mildred Budd's Theme

I’d like to introduce you to Mildred Budd, aka the Mother. Mildred is a doting, caring mother, or so it seems. I’m really not sure of her intentions, she is a resident of Wayward Manor after all. No one in this house is without questionable motives. I can, however, reveal her musical theme. This song with accompany her throughout the game. Do you like it?

The Grandfather's Theme

Today’s Music Monday post is going old school thanks to Wayward Manor’s resident Grandfather, Theophilus Ignatius Budd. You can just call him Grandfather. In his heyday, he was an adventurer, a gentlemen and a hunter. Those days are long gone but good luck explaining that to him.

If you’re thinking, “I wish I could listen to more Wayward Manor themes,” then I have great news. We’ve already posted the music themes for The Maid, The Goon, The Brat and The Twins.

Which theme is your favorite?

The Maid's Theme

Happy Music Monday! Today we have another melody from Wayward Manor. The Maid’s theme features one of my favorite instruments, the accordion. How does this theme compare to the the Goon’s, Brat's or the Twin’s?

In case you forgot, each week leading up to Wayward Manor’s release we are sharing a character theme.
