Fresh out the studio comes the first treatment of the main theme for the upcoming virtual reality title “The Heart of the Machine”.
This composition will go on to form the basis of the entire score with its epic lead line acting as a leitmotif for both the world of the machine and its inventor the professor.
“The piece relies heavily on the lydian scale or mode which is synonymous with science fiction”
Using the same modes and scales as many of the great sci-fi themes found in cinema and games the score acts both as a homage to the world of Science fiction as well as creating a fitting backdrop to the marvellous machine where our adventure takes place.
You can expect to hear many a variation on this piece over the next few months as it is adapted to each level, situation and environment in game so please check back for updates or follow Defective Penguin Games on social media.
