Velocity 2x is a fast-paced scrolling shoot ‘em up by FuturLab with an equally fast-paced soundtrack. According to the composers, Joris de Man and James Marsden, the idea for the music is based on a tune they created prior to the game’s existence. The racing techno beats really do make you feel like you’ve just stepped into a futuristic flying war machine. The orchestral sound from the Killzone series that Joris de Man is better known for is replaced by an equally entertaining style of synth music.
Fract is a musical exploration game developed by Phosfiend Systems, with music by Mogi Grumbles. The game is set in a world based around synthesised techno music that evolves as players unlock new sounds by exploring and solving puzzles. Mogi Grumbles has provided a strange and somewhat elusive musical experience that is forever building towards climax. The music can sound jumbled and confusing at times but the game tends to find a funky rhythm when drums are finally added to the mix. Prepare to get lost inside a giant synthesiser as Fract delivers a unique game idea based solely around original music.
