The Belko Experiment Soundtrack Being Released Friday!

The Belko Experiment

We’re pretty excited to check out The Belko Experiment this weekend; and its soundtrack, with original music by the awesome Tyler Bates, is one of the reasons why. It’s being released on the same date as the film, and we have a bit more info for you about it below.

From the Press Release:
Lakeshore Records will release THE BELKO EXPERIMENT – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally and on CD on March 17, 2017. The Orion Pictures film is being released by BH Tilt on the same day.

The album contains original music by Tyler Bates (John Wick, Guardians of the Galaxy). “I read the script several years ago when James Gunn wrote it, but once Greg McLean showed me a cut of the film, it sparked an interesting approach to scoring it than I had previously imagined: disturbing and emotional, yet non-orchestral,” Bates described. “Greg kept the incredibly dark sense of humor beneath the violence, which in turn kept me focused on the narrative.”

He added, “I first addressed the initial ‘lock-down’ sequence to establish an interesting tonal approach as the characters are initially shocked, then panicked, descending into denial, and ultimately transitioning into survival mode. That particular sequence is where the seeds of storytelling through the music are planted.”

Set in Bogota, Colombia, the film’s soundtrack features two classic 70s tracks reimagined and translated into Spanish: “California Dreamin’ (Latin)” performed by Gabriela Terán and “Yo Vivire (I Will Survive)” performed by José Prieto. Also featured on the album is a rock version of “California Dreamin’” performed by an all-star ensemble with Bates on guitar, Gilberto Cerezo (Kinky) on vocals, Dave Lombardo (Slayer, Suicidal Tendencies) on drums, and Rani Sharone (Stolen Babies) on bass.

The Belko Experiment (review) was directed by Greg McLean and written by James Gunn. The film stars John Gallagher, Jr. (“The Newsroom,” 10 Cloverfield Lane), Adria Arjona (“True Detective”), Tony Goldwyn (“Scandal”), John C. McGinley (Stan Against Evil, “Scrubs”), Josh Brener (“Silicon Valley”), Michael Rooker (“The Walking Dead,” Guardians of the Galaxy), Sean Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy), and Melonie Diaz (Fruitvale Station).

Synopsis:
The Belko Experiment explores a twisted social experiment, in which a group of 80 Americans are locked in their high-rise corporate office in Bogata, Colombia, and ordered by an unknown voice coming from the company’s intercom system to participate in a deadly game of kill or be killed.

WE HAPPY FEW Banned In Australia

Published

on

We Happy Few is the latest game to have fallen victim to the Australian ratings board, as it’s been refused classification in the country. Kotaku got hold of the Classification Board’s report on the game, which states that the ban was due to a drug named Joy, which the player needs to take in order to progress. The rating was refused in accordance with section 1A of the National Classification Code, Computer Games Table, which categories games which are said to do the following:

“Depict, express or otherwise deal with matters of sex, drug misuse or addiction, crime, cruelty, violence or revolting or abhorrent phenomena in such a way that they offend against the standards of morality, decency and propriety generally accepted by reasonable adults to the extent that they should not be classified.”

The Australian Classification Board are particularity touchy when it comes to drugs, as the originally banned Fallout 3 for the same reason, so we’re not too surprised that they lost their shit over We Happy Few. Either way, we can expect Gearbox to appeal the decision in the coming weeks, so watch this space.

Developed by Compulsion Games, We Happy Few is a dystopian survival horror set an alternate version of 1964. It will feature three playable character, one of who, ironically, censors newspapers for a living. From what we’ve seen so far, it looks like one of the most unique major releases in a long time, so we’ll just have to wait until it releases later this year to see if it lives up to the hype. Unless if you live in Australia, in which case you’ll just have to make do with FIFA 18.

The First Teaser For THE SINKING CITY Has Been Released!

Published

on

After months of writing about concept art, Q&A videos, and behind-the-scenes looks at the development of the game, the first official teaser for Frogware’s The Sinking City has been released and its suitably surreal, eerie, and fascinating. While there isn’t a shred of story being presented, nor do I see any gameplay footage, the visuals presented exude eldritch madness and Lovecraft-ian horror. Basically, even though I fully admit I was hooked before, I’m completely committed at this point. Bring it on and let me swim amongst the elder gods!

Can you hear that voice in your head getting louder and louder? That’s me. This is not the last time we will talk…

Taking place in the 1920s, The Sinking City is a game of adventure and investigation set in an open world inspired by the works of the famous American horror author H.P. Lovecraft. You will step into the shoes of a private investigator who arrives in the city of Oakmont Massachusetts – a city suffering from unprecedented floods of supernatural origins. You must uncover the source of whatever has taken possession of the city – and the minds of its inhabitants.

The Sinking City will be released later this year for PC, Xbox One, and PS4. To learn more about The Sinking City, make sure to read our interviews with Narrative Lead Sergey Ten and Concept Artist Andrey Roscha.
