Sierra released a new entry in its video diary series with developer The Odd Gentlemen for King’s Quest, the upcoming reimagining of one of adventure gaming’s most influential franchises.
“King’s Quest – Music with Character” goes inside the studio for a listen at how story sets the tone for King’s Quest’s new soundtrack. For composer David Stanton, scoring a world teeming with as many fantastic creatures and strange personalities as King’s Quest demanded a thematic approach, one in which the unique essences of the characters inform the music that accompanies them. As an aging King Graham guides players back through the lost tales of his youth, those recurring motifs will be critical to exploring the people and events that shaped his destiny from humble beginnings to heroic nobility.
The first chapter of King’s Quest is expected to arrive later this year as a digital download on the PlayStation4 and PlayStation3, XBOX One, Xbox 360 and PC.
