Trine pre-launch, exciting times

I’m just finishing the Trine soundtrack, there are almost 20 tracks now – one unique track for each Trine in-game location (map)! That’s a huge accomplishment for any games out there! (Actually, is there any?) And those tracks ain’t any ‘generic ambients’ either – every track is different and unique, with lots of different instruments and melodic scores going on.

And importantly – Trine soundtrack is purely original, composed by one person (me) and totally unique. No lisenced tracks used (like in Braid)!

So, the times before launch are always exciting – how will reviews go, how will the gamers react, will the soundtrack gather any fans? Trine releases will be about in a month, there’s some couple things I can still improve it: live performances. I still need to record some violin, oboe, cello and other instruments to make the soundtrack sound alive. But don’t worry – I have very talented musicians in my list already! You’ve seen Trine Teaser Trailer and the new Trailer? If you can spot the difference with the score you know what I’m talking about. πŸ™‚

OK then, I’ll go now and finish the soundtrack. πŸ™‚

    The Trine ambient just… slides, just equally connects with the music.
    The Crystal Caverns theme is one of the best piano songs I have EVER heard in my life.
    Ari Pulkkinen, congratulations, I love your music. πŸ™‚
    And your father would be proud of you because of the Trine soundtrack πŸ™‚
