Mikolai Stroinski says writing the music for Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 was the biggest challenge he's had so far. In fact, he wrote two soundtracks -- the in-game music, as well as an album of pop songs that play whenever you're driving through the terrain of the Republic of Georgia.

There are lots of  tense moments in the game. Surprisingly, Mikolai says writing suspenseful music for "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" helped him get just the right amount of stealthy quietness into his music for Sniper Ghost Warrior 3.

In our conversation, Mikolai also touched on his music for Detached, a space exploration virtual reality game that gave Mikolai a chance to use his favorite synthesizers, which he says he misses more than his pets when he's away from home.
