Outlast, from Red Barrels Studio, is a different kind of horror game, with a protagonist whose only weapon is a video camera. It was so successful, a sequel is planned for release on April 25th. At GDG, I talked with composer Samuel Laflamme about how he created a special blend of tense music for both games, including a cymbal that sounds like a human scream!

It's already been a fantastic year for composer John Robert Matz! At the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, his score for Fossil Echo was awarded "Best Interactive Score" by the Game Audio Network Guild, beating out scores from such triple-A games as Uncharted 4. John was also a co-recipient of the "Rookie of the Year" award, given to promising composers whose careers are just getting underway. I caught up with him at GDC the day after the award ceremony.
