Almost a year ago to the day a unique indie horror game by the name of Carrion was released by newcomer developer Phobia Game Studio. It made a name for itself by being essentially a reverse horror game. Instead of playing as a human protagonist battling against terrifying forces that stretch the imagination, players took on the role of an amorphous blob striking fear into said humans. Overall, it received generally favorable scores. You can read our review of the game here.
Now, to celebrate a year of the game being out, video game music label Materia Collective has released the soundtrack to the game, called Carrion: The Prime Cuts. According to a press release, it’s a four-track EP composed by Cris Velasco, which brings the game’s music to platforms such as Spotify and Amazon Music. There’s also an original song to celebrate the game’s BAFTA win.
If you don’t know Velasco by name, you’ll surely know his music. He has worked on an ever-expanding list of games, including God of War, Soul Calibur, Borderlands 2, Splinter Cell: Double Agent, and a lot more.
Carrion is currently available on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. There was supposed to be a PlayStation 4 port, but nothing seems to have come of that so far. For those who are unfamiliar with the game, Carrion‘s story follows the player as the creature of unknown origin, tasked with, “Stalking and consuming those that imprisoned the creature, players must spread fear and panic throughout the facility. As they tear down the prison, they can acquire more devastating abilities on the path to retribution.”
