Often the point of game music and sounds is to be effective without bringing attention to their very existence. Just like User Interface in games: we only notice it when it’s bad. That’s why UI designers and coders, and audio wizards behind your favorite video games are often underappreciated. We know quite a few, and every single one tells the same story.
And yet, a great audioscape changes any game into something magical.
But we’re getting ahead of ourselves, it’s not the time to talk about the audio side of Ethan Carter yet. We do have a cool thing we’d love to share with you, though. Mikolai Stroinski – the composer behind Dark Souls 2 trailer, among other things – has created his own version of the music track for our little teaser.
The video is the same, but the audio is entirely Mikolai’s.
