Giant Squid

Giant Squid

The Pathless is the latest game created by Giant Squid studios.  A mysterious island is plagued with darkness emanating from cursed beings, and it's up to a fearless Hunter and her Eagle companion to rid the island of these beasts. Austin Wintory created a pan-cultural soundtrack with diverse instruments including a traditional Swedish nyckelharpa, a Middle Eastern Oud, flutes and whistles, but he says the soul of the music comes from a six-hour jam session he had with the Alash Ensemble from Tuva.

One of the most anticipated games this year is the underwater  experience, Abzu, from Giant Squid, a small studio that includes Matt Nava, one of the creators of the influential game, Journey. Award-winning composer Austin  Wintory  whose credits include Assassins's Creed Syndicate and Journey, is also on board to provide a beautiful soundtrack that compliments Abzu.  It's been a multi-year adventure, but the wait is finally over! Abzu released on August 2nd to rave reviews.
