Having now been operating on Dual Reflect for over a yr as cinematic director at Dontnod Leisure, the sport has raised quite a lot of other demanding situations, each daunting and thrilling. One of the vital attractive ones to paintings on on the other hand was once the sport’s musical facet. Dual Reflect being a story online game, my function as cinematic director was once to respire as a lot of a cinematic high quality as imaginable into the sport and one of the vital an important components in that admire was once the usage of song and who to paintings with as a composer.
Discussing the entire thing with my collaborators Audio Director Antoine Rozan and Sport Director Florian Desforges, we all of a sudden got here to the realization that the sport’s song needed to be composed through any individual who was once used to scoring movies and we briefly got here up with the next identify: David Wingo.
David is an insanely gifted composer who has no longer best scored over a dozen characteristic movies (among which Jeff Nichols’ superb “Dust,” “Take Refuge,” “Middle of the night Particular,” and “Loving”) and TV displays (“Kidding” starring Jim Carrey but in addition “Barry”) however who’s musical DNA and influences are deeply rooted in a definite concept of North American tradition wired through robust southern accents and carried out in an excessively fashionable taste (his band, Ola Podrida could also be a should in case you’ve by no means listened to their songs).
This made David the very best candidate for Dual Reflect and I couldn’t be happier of our collaboration and the result of his paintings, each soulful and mysterious. As you’ll quickly uncover, the rating is split into a number of topics and concepts together with the sport’s major personality Sam, his imaginary double and thoughts palace but in addition town of Basswood the place the tale is about in addition to different necessary characters similar to Anna and Joan.
Those topics mingle with extra moody and cinematic tracks throughout the extra aggravating and suspenseful scenes, comparable to its mental mystery facet and steadily go back throughout the gameplaying moments, permitting the participant to delve deeper and discover the arena of Dual Reflect. In the end, I’m firmly satisfied that the entire objectives we set to reach for the song were met from an emotional and dramatic viewpoint and I will be able to’t look forward to you all to listen to what David and our audio staff have created for this recreation.
Dual Reflect will probably be launched on December 1 on Xbox One and we’re additionally excited to verify Dual Reflect helps Sensible Supply. That suggests avid gamers who acquire on Xbox One gets a unfastened improve on their Xbox Collection X or Xbox Collection S at no further fee.
