One of the least celebrated parts of game development is audio. More often than not, when you read a game review (even one written by me, mind you), it will tell you very little about the music and the sound design of the game, as they tend to work on the background with a more subtle effect than the rest of the production values.
As subtle as that effect can be, it’s still extremely important, and Sony Computer Entertainment reminded us today with a new developer diary dedicated to Sorcery, in which the team describes the inspiration and philosophy behind the soundtrack of the game.
The brief glimpse it gives on the music of Sorcery is very enjoyable, with merry medieval music fading into powerful and epic themes. You can check it out below.
