Didn’t see anything on this before:
Not a huge fan of horror/survival games, but I might have to keep an eye on this - looks pretty intense.
Yeah, that looks really interesting. Of course the story has been told many times, so it will need to be smartly written, with perhaps an alternate ending. I can imagine that it might be quite an experience in VR.
At it will need a great soundtrack
That’s a really good album. And still can’t beat the 1950’ish movie for shock value.
I’ve got that on cassette still! I remember my Dad buying it in the late '70’s and we used to listen to it a lot. In the very early '70’s BFBS Radio (I think - might have been BBC World Service) did an audio play which had episodes for a half hour every Saturday evening and the whole family used to sit round the radio listening to it. That’s of the original story, of course, where this game is based on the US/Tom Cruise one.
I also have a video of the live performance of that album, with Jeff Wayne and I thought they did a very good job. I think there are different one available, because they had one on TV recently and I thought it wasn’t as good as the digital one I have - don’t remember where I got it.
Ah - this is the one I have:
Thanks John for posting. Les Paul as laser beam. I too have the cassettes around here, probably out in the garage, but hadn’t seen the live performance. What a production, even by today’s standards. Early rock orchestral fusion I suppose. It still sounds fantastic, and IMHO, a little better than the studio production.
I had the trumpet noise as my message alert on my phone for ages before my wife threatened to remove it for me.
I have DOOM 2 super shotgun noise now. Just as terrifying at 3am. But shorter.
I use a sonar ping I tore out of a silent hunter game. For ring tone it’s the combat music from Borderlands. Both sounds are non-irritating, distinctive and unique so I’ll never confuse someone else’s notifications for mine. Bonus is getting to say “they’re onto us, number one” when someone messages me.
I did record myself playing the famous 4 note Pink Floyd phrase from Shine On You Crazy Diamond and used that for a few years, but needed something louder for when it was in a different room in the house - so now I use a horrendously loud old-style ringer sound. It works very well and always grabs our attention.
used to listen to that album constantly as a young kid in the late 70’s…
was pretty epic
