Dark Messiah - Music Interview @ IGN

by Dhruin, 2006-12-03 00:28:58

IGN's music subsite has an interview with Cris Velasco and Sascha Dikiciyan about their creation of the music for Arkane's Dark Messiah:

IGN Music: Since Brunet approached you to demo for the project, what was it about it that made you want to get involved? You know, what was so special about Dark Messiah of Might & Magic as opposed to some of the other videogames you've worked on? Was it a case of where the themes of the game seem like something that would challenge you in terms of coming up with immersive music?

Cris Velasco:
I've been a fan of the Might and Magic games since I was a kid. Being able to create a new sound for this world was a great challenge and an honor to me. Ubisoft and Arkane have taken this franchise in an exciting new direction and we wanted the score to reflect that. One of the hardest things to do is to give a game its own unique sound. I think we were able to do that. Every track sounds different, of course, but they are instantly recognizable as having the "Dark Messiah" sound.
