We are delighted to announce that we will be releasing the soundtrack to Crytek’s newest VR game Robinson: The Journey by BAFTA award-winning and Billboard / MTV VMA nominated composer Jesper Kyd on audiophile 180g vinyl later this Fall. The digital soundtrack is out now on Bandcamp, Spotify, iTunes and all major streaming platforms worldwide.
Jesper Kyd’s haunting cinematic electronic soundtrack will be available on limited edition opaque white and classic 180g black single vinyl and will come in a beautiful sleeve with original artwork by Crytek and additional layout by Dane Baudoin (Another World, Earthworm Jim). The vinyl includes a previously unreleased bonus track, will be housed in a heavy-wight inner sleeve with a shiny metallic varnish and comes with a free mp3 download code.
Jesper Kyd is renowned for composing the iconic scores for the first four Assassin’s Creed games, Borderlands Series, Hitman Series, State of Decay Series, Darksiders 2, Freedom Fighters and many more. When asked about the making of the soundtrack, Kyd said: “We worked on making the jungle come alive using analog and acoustic instruments as elements of the forest and creatures inhabiting the world of Robinson. The score is more minimal than I am used to writing and it’s a music style that lends itself really well to the VR experience in Robinson.”
Robinson: The Journey tells the story a boy named Robin who is left stranded when the Esmeralda crash-lands on Tyson III. He must rely on his wits – and HIGS, one of the ship’s AI units – to survive. As he searches for the lost crew and comes face-to-face with dinosaurs, Robin discovers that Tyson III is not the paradise once promised … it’s an alien planet full of pre-historic life and resembles life on earth during the Jurassic period. Robinson: The Journey is out now on Playstation VR and Oculus VR. Find out more about the game here: www.robinsonthegame.com
“Our favorite part of [Robinson: The Journey] might just be the soundtrack…With a combination of ’80s synth and acoustic instruments, BAFTA-winning composer Jesper Kyd more than lives up to his Assassin’s Creed fame.” – Oculus.com
