Contrast’s Music Trailer Showcases A Smooth, Silky and Hypnotic Soundtrack

on October 16, 2013 3:05 PM

Compulsion Games and Focus Home Interactive’s upcoming game, Contrast, is looking to be a wondrous adventure that uses shadows and jazz music to create a mysterious, noir-themed world. Today, a new trailer has given us a glimpse (or an earfull?) of Contrast‘s smooth, silky and hypnotic soundtrack, which has been created just for the game.

In a collaboration with Compulsion Games, who worked on the lyrics of the song, the trailer features “House on Fire,” which is performed by talented jazz singer Laura Ellis and composed by WaveGeneration Audio. Contrast will have a soundtrack described as “delivering a captivating ambiance of the brilliance of film noir mixed with the tease of burlesque,” while “infusing” sultry jazz.

Contrast will be available mid-November, in two packages: a standard digital edition, and a Collector’s Edition which includes the Original Soundtrack of Contrast as well as the Contrast “Programme”, a 52-page art book with commentary by the development team. Today players can also pre-order the game on Steam, receiving a 25% discount on the Collector’s Edition, and will receive the OST and “Programme” immediately.

Contrast is also set to release digitally to the PS3 and Xbox 360 sometime later this year. For a closer look at the game, check out the screenshots below, and for more details, screenshots and jazzy trailers, check out all of DualShockers’ Contrast news.
