King's Quest - "Music with Character" Behind The Scenes Trailer
Sierra™ today 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
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.
And if you missed them previously, check out Sierra’s other recent King’s Quest
developer features, which go into the trenches with The Odd Gentlemen
for a closer look at the game’s beginnings, incredible voiceover cast
and hand-drawn art design.
