Deep Silver may be prevalent only for a certain game about zombies and an island (that would be Dead Island), but they published some meager titles we may get an epiphany about. Oh yeah, the Risen series, the X series, and the Secret Files series. Believe it or not, the latter is a point-and-click adventure game that managed to get lost in the cartoony competition of Tim Schafer and Telltale.
The previous Secret Files games haven’t fared well with critical response. However, with Thorsten Engel returning to make the tunes and tracks, I’m sure the game would be nice to listen to. Engel is an up-and-coming composer bound to finally make something special. After I heard he had a nomination from a German Game Development Award for his recent work on Lost Horizon, my interest has gone up. Any recognition of great game music is appreciated.
Give a listen to three tracks highlighting the different themes in Secret Files 3. Varying from different areas across the globe, the samples gives distinct background music to the places you will get to drag and click around. “Church Dream,” as you could imagine, is a tense, Gregorian chant-filled (think of a Church Choir), pipe organ powering, sleep-induced piece. “Turkey” drives along with acoustics – nothing remarkable compared to the next. “Nina’s Bedroom” starts off plodding, but as it increases in volume, you can hear the beautiful melody playing.
Secret Files 3 is coming August 31 to Steam and retail PC vendors.
