The Lion Sleeps Tonight (Wimoweh) in Minor Key 

I have gone down the YouTube blackhole of songs with shifted keys. I really like this version of The Lion Sleeps Tonight. There's also this Smells Light Teen Spirit remix that I might actually like more than the original version.

Apologies to skankcore.

Astroneer Creative Update is live now

The game also just got a physical release on PS4 and Xbox One.
