It is hard to imagine a company lasting 25 years, especially one focusing on games, however that is exactly the length of time Revolution Software have been delighting us with their fantastic selection of titles over the last quarter of a century.
To celebrate, in March they are releasing a vast box set with all of their released games and a number of interviews and assets for good measure. This box set also features an addition which has surprised me greatly. They have also included a selection of the enhanced music tracks from Beneath A Steel Sky I created as part of my ScummVM Music Enhancement Project. ‘Flattered’ is certainly the word!
My attempts to recreate classic point and click adventure game soundtracks on modern hardware and have them playable within the actual games through ScummVM known as the ‘ScummVM Music Enhancement Project‘ has featured in one of Gamer.no’s articles by Erik-André Vik Mamen recently.
My album Anticipation has been available for a couple of years now and I decided to release full length previews of all of my tracks on YouTube and here is the final track from the CD.
‘A New Dawn’ is the tenth track from my album, a composition in an earlier form that originally featured in the ‘Steve Jackson’s Sorcery – The Shamutanti Hills‘ app for iPhone and iPod Touch as the credits music.
This is my favourite track from the CD, so I hope you enjoy it too!
Back in January 2013 I reported that Wyrmkeep Entertainment were raising money via Kickstarter to release a sequel to a popular point and click adventure. Inherit the Earth 2 unfortunately didn’t meet the required target, however thankfully that hasn’t deterred them as they are back for a second try with more details and even a playable demo:
The primary hero of Inherit the Earth is Rif, a young Fox, who is a quick-witted, puzzle solver. Such skills come in handy as Rif tends to be thrust into dangerous missions involving righting wrongs and saving his friends.
The project being funded by this Kickstarter is Inherit the Earth: Sand and Shadows, a video game sequel to the original Inherit the Earth: Quest for the Orb. The game will be available for Windows, Mac, and other platforms.
