Another World, released in 1991 by Eric Chahi, is a game that was far ahead of its time. It's a haunting, lonely experience as scientist Lester is transported to a  harsh,  dying world and taken captive. Composer and sound designer Rich Douglas has been playing the game every year since it came out, and on his most recent playthrough, he noticed how creative the music by Jean-Francois Freitas was.

Alexander Brandon has always loved writing music for games set in the future, including his iconic music for the original Deus Ex games. He had an opportunity once again to peer into what the future holds with his music for Aven Colony, from the small team at Mothership Entertainment.

Every game composer I've talked with has so much respect for the musicians who bring their music to life on the soundtracks.
