    Why would they even need a full orchestra? This is beautiful.

    Cool stuff. There's some PST notes there (unless my completely amusical ear is being a complete bitch at the moment) but sounds quite different too.

    Yeah, it seems to have the same feel as the PS:T music without being the same. I'm glad I went for the soundtrack.

    What has Ziets done besides MoTB? The interaction with Murkel was possible the best moment in a RPG I've ever experienced but that was one moment. And did he even write that?

    Yep, count me among those. I was a doubter.
    But the KS page and the music- they "get" it.

    This is going to be atmospheric as Dark Souls by the likes of it, and just like that game, will return me to the place I cherish in my memories: the place in which I explore a forgotten, abandoned world... the place in which I played PS:T, Nier and Dark Souls and the few other games that are like this.

    I am a strange person. What makes me happiest is being alone with a game that brings me to sad, quiet, beautiful places. I can already tell the people who work on this "get" this kind of melancholy and will cater to it.

    I am happy, very happy. I can't wait to play this. I wish them all the best, my greatest respect to whoever works on this.

    Thank you.

    This is not just something we're slapping on because it seems cool, Mark wanted a full orchestra. I am curious to hear what he'll do with it! Obviously he won't start making every piece bombastic and crazy, but he should be able to do more than he can now.

    What's really heartening to me is that -- from a larger view -- it seems like they'll have the ability to put out games every two to two and a half years which is a hell of a turnaround time compared to AAA where they need two years to do the bullshit media rounds alone before they actually think of starting production.

    I didn't think that music in that video was that good. Just put the Planescape theme in there.

    The music definitely conveys the right mood, even though it's likely not nearly in its final state.

    Also heartening to me that in a worst case scenario, there'll at least be a group of ambitious developers (putting aside for the moment whether they actually achieve their ambitions this time around), who get to own their IP, and hence if they sell even moderately well, when they go to make the next game in that IP setting, they'll actually be able to have some negotiating clout when sitting at the table with the publisher, rather than having to choose between either taking it up the ass or having the publisher hand the IP to someone else.

    Yep, I often feel like live orchestras layered over a piece not really meant for it tends to ruin the music rather than make it better. Much more of a fan of ambient/non-live music, anyway.

    Damn, this is 100% what I do yet I still go for the physical goods, what the fuck am I doing?

    I enjoy CMcM much more in this video than in the pitch video. I was really put off there for some reason. I think the walking in from a black background while talking and unfocused had something to do with it.
