Game soundtracks are getting standalone releases with ever greater frequency these days, which is great; they lend so much to our gaming experiences, whether we notice it consciously or not, and they absolutely deserve greater recognition.
With the sun starting to set on the British summer (not that I remember seeing much of the sun, come to think of it), we find ourselves once again blessed with some actual, genuine new game releases. Praise be!
Volume is so drastically different to Thomas Was Alone that I'm really glad to see it came off well - Dan Whitehead did give it a Recommended, after all.
I'm joined by Thomas was Alone creator Mike Bithell to take a look at the latest build of Volume, his upcoming stealth game that has lots of famous people's voices in it.
Coming off the stage after presenting his stealth game Volume at Rezzed last weekend, Mike Bithell was alone - or was he? A disembodied narrator who sounded an awful lot like our video editor Ian Higton kept pestering the Thomas Was Alone creator with questions about Volume, and Mike felt compelled to answer him. Even when the voice asked whether the level editor could be used to make penises. A mysteriously present camera recorded his responses; you can watch them below.
