The Musical Atmosphere in Fated

Hello everyone!

When I started working on this project, I had minimal experience with story-driven games. But I knew that music would be critical in order to create the emotional journey I wanted FATED to be. So I made sure we were working with one of the best Audio Directors out there: Patrick Balthrop. Patrick has more than a decade of experience creating award-winning sound for games like BioShock: Infinite; he also worked with us on Chariot, so I knew what I could expect to get from him: top-notch audio.

With Patrick on our team, I started looking for references that would help us define our musical signature. I’ve listened to over a hundred tracks and found inspiration in many of them, but I would say that the most important influence has been The Fountain’s soundtrack. I hadn’t even seen the movie the first time I listened to it, but with the music alone, I was able to feel every emotion the movie puts you through. I also really liked the fact that the soundtrack felt like one long musical piece. It rapidly became a benchmark for our musical track, and I think we’ve reached our objective.

I am very excited to share FATED’s musical theme with you today, and I really hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we do.

If you are interested in knowing more about the production of audio for VR, keep an eye on the blog, as we will shortly post an article that shares our learnings.

Talk to you later!
