Video game OST (PC, Mac)
Swords, wizards, dragons and tile-based movement, what’s not to love? We wanted to honor the old school roots of the game by going after the classic 1980-90s adventure movie style sound. To us it meant soaring melodies, leitmotifs, detailed but simple bombastic orchestration and finally live musicians to bring the notes alive. So, we mapped out the key plot elements of the game, came up with suitable musical motifs for each one, derived the score out of those and used a lot of time on orchestration details, score writing and such. On top of that we added sampled percussion and other modern production sugar and that’s it, epic adventure music in the style of Scoring Helsinki!
