An interview with Mikolai Stroinski, composer behind The Vanish of Ethan Carter. IndieHangover asks how he created an atmosphere of discomfort, his background in gaming, and music in indie development.
Music makes or breaks immersion in a game. Seeing as this game is all about giving you that feeling of actually being in the game's world - good music is so important. The sampled music in the article certainly creates a mood just by listening to it. Glad to see that aspect covered.
The music was spot on with this one... especially combined with the amazing environments
One of the few games I had to buy the soundtrack for.
Loved the discussion of how to make music creepy. Really interesting stuff!
