Everybody's Gone To The Rapture Score Was A Challenge
With a game this subtle and atmospheric, a good score is essential.
And that's exactly what we'll get in Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, which will release for PlayStation 4 on August 11.
Composer and co-director Jessica Curry posted on the PlayStation Blog, talking about the challenge of producing a soundtrack for the game. In her own words:
"I can’t believe that this time has finally come- it’s scary and exciting in equal measures because it means that there are no more changes: no more “can we just try”, no “how about if we”, no “I think we should” – just the knowledge that for better or worse, this is how the game will sound on release. *sobs into gin-soaked pillow*"
She also said they considered going with a "synth-driven retrotastic score" because the game is set in the '80s. But that didn't really work so they set about creating what they hope will be timeless music. Considering how much we love great game scores, we can't wait to try this one; if it fits perfectly, the game is that much better.
