Since it was announced, many have been comparing Insomnia: The Ark to games like Fallout and Bioshock due to not only to its dystopian retro-futuristic setting, but to some of the interesting soundtrack choices the developers have chosen to include in the game.
We saw this last month in a trailer focusing on the game’s space station setting with an upbeat song by Russian singer Leonid Utyosov contrasting with the bleak imagery. Today, developer Studio Mono continued this trend by tweeting out another jazzy number from the soundtrack.

Composed and produced by Petr Yakyamsev, this song and the one from the previous trailer definitely remind me of Bioshock, and if this is what we can expect throughout the whole game then I’m on board.
A Kickstarter campaign for INSOMNIA: The Ark began several years ago. The campaign says that the game will be available for PC, Mac, and Linux, but its Steam page only shares system requirements for PC at the moment. The game will be released sometime later this year.
