‘OUTER WILDS’ – ORIGINAL VIDEO GAME SOUNDTRACK AVAILABLE NOW

Annapurna Interactive’s ‘OUTER WILDS’ – Original Video Game Soundtrack, which features an original score by Andrew Prahlow (composer of the 2017 Mobile VR Game of the Year, ‘Eclipse: Edge of Light’). ‘Outer Wilds’ is an open world mystery game about a solar system trapped in an endless time loop. The soundtrack is now available digitally on Annapurna Interactive.

Andrew Prahlow has been a part of this project since the beta stages in 2013 and has created a perfectly ‘ambient soundscape with guitar and synthesizers’ to contrast the ‘melancholic textures’ of the game, which won the Seumas McNally Grand Prize at the Independent Games Festival.

“When asked to compose the music for ‘Outer Wilds’, I wanted to create a sense of simplicity and nostalgia as the player slowly becomes familiar with the world of the Hearthians. I immediately thought of an old beat up banjo that I had received as a gift a few years prior. This main theme contrasted the melancholic textures of the Nomai – where I crafted ambient soundscapes with guitar and synthesizers, heavily influenced by post-rock. As the player explores the solar system and the story moves forward, these textures become more complex, along with the campfire tunes that are the center of the score.” – Andrew Prahlow
