The Sound of Play videogame music podcast

For many of us, it’s hard to think of almost any videogame without our minds conjuring up the music that accompanied it. Over the decades they’ve evolved from simplistic monaural beeps and bloops to full orchestral scores recorded in 7.1 surround, but from their earliest days right up to today, soundtracks have played an integral part of our memories of the games we played, and the times in our lives when we were playing them. What we aim to bring you with Sound of Play is a diverse sample of our favourites pieces from the many air-punching, spine-tingling, tear-jerking and grin-inducing videogame soundtracks we’ve heard over the years.


Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons – Cane and Rinse No.122

A change of pace and tone for Starbreeze with their downloadable story of symbiotic siblings, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, affecting many who played it. Leon, Tony, Darren Gargette and Karl attempt to wrap their minds and thumbs around the concept of single-player co-op, aided admirably by some excellent contributions from the Cane and Rinse community via our forum and Twitter.

Music used in this issue:

1: Main Theme by Gustaf Grefberg
