GameSpy have posted an interview with Bjorn Lynne, the Norwegian musician now living in deepest darkest Yorkshire who is behind the soundtracks of the Worms series and Alien Breed 3D amongst other games.

"Being a musician, obviously I would like to see larger budgets for audio in games", Bjorn tells them. "There have been a few, very few, games with big audio budgets and music recorded by real symphony orchestras, but I would say that 9 out of 10 games have music that is primarily done by one guy working in a small studio with a few synths and guitars.
