Post news Report content RSS feed Music in L.U.R.K. - Yannick Zenhäusern

Yannick talks about the new way we're approaching musical cues in L.U.R.K. and also shares some of his methods for composition.

Posted by on

We're taking a new approach to music in L.U.R.K.: Instead of looping drones in the background all the time, we are now taking a page from games such as Half Life and having music trigger at appropriate points throughout the game.
If you want to purchase Yannick's GoldenEye: Source soundtrack, you can so here.

This is interesting. I love how the whole team are putting their own individual mark on this; it's still STALKER, but conceptually, it's also its own thing, in terms of scale, depth, and (I feel) an artistry that wasn't present in the original. I've often heard Far Cry 2 referred to as "Stalker: Shadow of Chernobyl, only not broken", which is a little unfair to both Far Cry 2 and STALKER, but yeah, what you're making here feels more like a Far Cry 2 than a STALKER: Redux, and that's cool.

Anyway, awesome work as always. Really excited to play this.

" I've often heard Far Cry 2 referred to as "Stalker: Shadow of Chernobyl, only not broken" "

You should probably punch that guy in the face. Just saying.

I mean, in fairness, SoC was originally super broken, but that was also part of the charm I think.

Wow I just like how everyone tries their best to make L.U.R.K. THE Shadow of Chernobyl mod. Models, sounds, textures, music. Keep it up.

Sounds really good, some of it reminds me of the ambient spooky sounds from Doom on the original Playstation.

Interesting choice going with music at various trigger points. The samples in the video sounded quite fitting; nice work.
