"Joggernauts takes place on three alien moons (Plazlip, Splizorp, and Zlopari) orbiting some backwater planet. Each of these worlds have a different aesthetic, and all of my songs use that aesthetic to define its tonality and melodic themes. I did this so players can feel when they leave one world and move to the next. Different lead instruments are used to further create this separation. For example, a silly/cheesy banjo patch was used for the majority of Plazlip's songs because of it's swampy/forest aesthetic."


Key themes include "Jog My Breath Away," a funky electronic space rock tune representing the vastness of space around Zlopari, "Snore More Swamp," a catchy bluegrass polka with a froggy twist to accompany the bouncing mechanic featured in this stage, "JNTS-1701-D," a punky song incorporating the main theme used for the spaceship menu to lend the ship its own unique character, "Conveyor And A Prayer," an etherial junk jazz track with gear clicks as a rhythmic element, and "Lave Laser Lever Level," a garbage electronic drone rock performance with a reggaeton groove used for the final level of the game.
