Atari Interactive Inc. and MILAN RECORDS today announced their first collaboration with the forthcoming MILAN RECORDS release on May 24, 2008 of the soundtrack to the highly anticipated action survival video game Alone in the Dark. The original Alone in the Dark created the survival horror genre and set the standard for later games. Developed by Eden Games, the new Alone in the Dark is set to reinvent the genre once again with unique innovations and thrilling gameplay.
The evocative score was composed by Olivier Deriviere (Obscure) and performed by world-famous, Grammy Award-winning choir The Mystery of Bulgarian Voices. The result is an energetic, memorable score that mixes orchestration with the unique sound of The Mystery of Bulgarian Voices.
"For its first release of a video game soundtrack, Milan Records is very proud to be associated with such a classic series as Alone in the Dark," said Nick Bobetsky, VP Sales and Marketing, MILAN RECORDS. "This is an original and powerful soundtrack, which goes beyond what you would normally expect in a video game."
Alone in the Dark follows paranormal investigator Edward Carnby as over the course of one apocalyptic night he must fight to survive and uncover the earth-shattering secret behind New York's Central Park. With an exhilarating mix of gameplay, intense storytelling in a TV season style, unprecedented environmental interaction, and DVD chapter select feature which lets players move on if they get stuck, Alone in the Dark is set to change what players expect from action games.
Alone in the Dark is scheduled to ship on June 20th in Europe and June 24th in North America on Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, Windows-based PC, Wii™ and PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, followed by PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system later in 2008. Classic soundtrack label MILAN RECORDS (City of God, Tsotsi, Flags of Our Fathers, Ghost, Monsoon Wedding, Pan's Labyrinth) will release the album physically and digitally in North America on May 24th and across Europe in late June.
