Re­quiem for a dream

EDGE - - HYPE -

Simogo’s sixth game has an eclec­tic mix of in­flu­ences, rang­ing from Tom Waits to Elec­tro­plank­ton, but none as sig­nif­i­cant as that of reg­u­lar Simogo col­lab­o­ra­tor Jonathan Eng. He com­posed the del­i­cate acous­tic melody that sound­tracks the game’s teaser trailer, a song that Flesser says was the in­spi­ra­tion for The Sailor’s Dream. “Jonathan [played] me that in early 2011,” he says, “and it’s been in my head since then. We’ve talked back and forth dur­ing the years [since] about how to make a game that cap­tures the feel­ing of that song. It’s the only piece of mu­sic that has not been newly pro­duced for the game, but it felt like a com­plete cir­cle to have it in the re­veal trailer.”
