Developer Insane Code's 80’s Overdrive features synthwave music by three duos. The contributors are Chris and Anthony Greninger of the band Wolf and Raven, Lukasz Szalankiewicz and Patryk Gegniewicz of ANGST78, and Brent Dove and Dani Peterson of VECTORWOLF.

Wolf and Raven's four image albums are available through Bandcamp and embedded on the band's website. "Lair of the Dragon" is described as an Eastern-influenced metal ballad set in a distant galaxy, where samurai and cyborgs do battle in a dystopian metropolis against a totalitarian artificial intelligence system.

"Ace of Space" is an 80's anime space opera, emulating stylistic flourishes of Sega's Outrun series. "Platforms" tackles tribal synth and derives inspiration from the Donkey Kong game franchise. "Renegades" is a retro future image album set on the highways of a future city.

The band's synthwave covers of OutRun, Street Fighter II and Space Harrier are streaming on SoundCloud.
