Outlast, from Red Barrels Studio, is a different kind of horror game, with a protagonist whose only weapon is a video camera. It was so successful, a sequel is planned for release on April 25th. At GDG, I talked with composer Samuel Laflamme about how he created a special blend of tense music for both games, including a cymbal that sounds like a human scream!
Sam says his goal with the scores for both games is to write music that will stand the test of time, and he and the team work hard to create unique sounds that give the games their identity.
