If you take interest in video game scores, then you may be familiar with a man by the name of Óscar Araujo who is known for his work on the music of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2
. Game developer MercurySteam have enlisted the talents of Óscar to score their upcoming title, Raiders of the Broken Planet
. Understandably, they are pretty pumped to be working with Óscar:
Having Oscar back to help us deliver something truly memorable for Raiders is something we are all very excited about. He always brings something exceptional to a score that adds oodles of atmosphere and sets the scene for the World and the Characters in it. Our adventure in space needs a very different approach to Oscar’s previous work but nevertheless, he is rising to the occasion with a score which suits the game perfectly
The feeling is mutual for Óscar:
I feel very comfortable working with my friends at MercurySteam once again and I’m so excited by this world of adventure they are creating in Raiders of the Broken Planet. It’s really making me approach my work in a new way. My hope is that the game’s music will bring a stylish sense of adventure to the game.
Alongside this announcement comes a single screenshot of two characters looking to warm each other up:
