The Sound of Fiction record label today released a special edition of the Penumbra Soundtrack. The Penumbra series, developed by Frictional Games, has achieved cult status, and Mikko Tarmia’s essential soundscape has been consistently lauded as one of the series’ greatest achievements.
For the first time all in one place the album delivers over one hour and 27 tracks of remastered music from all three games, in addition to exclusive and previously unreleased material. Series narrative designer, Tom Jubert, returns to provide an exclusive text and further insight into Penumbra’s twisted tale. The series’ dark, signature theme tunes and ambient soundscapes make this an essential purchase for any VGM or horror aficionado, not to mention the serious Penumbra fan.
The CD edition is available for RRP €15.90 from the project’s official website, where you can also find music clips and freebies: one full music track and the much requested piano note sheet for the Penumbra Overture theme. The download edition is available for RRP €9.90 from Frictional Games’ online store. Purchase the Penumbra Soundtrack together with The Sound of Fiction’s first release, AIKA, for just RRP €24.90.
