Today, developer XGen Studios officially brings its darkly comedic point-and-click adventure game, The Low Road to Steam. A new trailer has been released, celebrating the game’s unique music.

The Low Road tells the story of 1970s rookie agent Noomi Kovacs, a woman with ambitions to climb the ladder of corporate espionage through any means necessary: lying, stealing, and even blackmailing. She will do anything to realize fully her dreams of becoming a true secret agent.

Composer and Sound Designer Eric Cheng has put a lot of thought and a lot of love into his work on The Low Road, finding musical styles that he feels best fit the game’s characters. For example, Noomi might have idolized spy movies, so music like Shirley Bassey’s Goldfinger theme should fit her action scenes. Cheng has also gone as far as to create his own character for the game in Win Well, an odd singer with his own story.

“[Win Well] has the voice of a classic American crooner, delivering melodies in torch songs sung over instrumentals trying to keep up with big-budget 1970s bands like ABBA, Queen and Pink Floyd. His songs are sometimes at odds with the score, which is more grounded in the spirit of a 1970s TV show.”

The Low Road is available today for PC and Mac via Steam. The game is priced at $19.99. You can view the game’s Music Trailer in the video below.

If you’re interested in hearing more of Win Well‘s music or The Low Road‘s original soundtrack, both can be found on Bandcamp.
