Penumbra Soundtrack - Special Edition is a thrilling release from The Sound of Fiction label. The Penumbra series, developed by Frictional Games, has achieved cult status, and Mikko Tarmia's essential soundscape has been consistently lauded as one of the series' greatest achievements.
For the first time all in one place the album delivers over one hour and 27 tracks of remastered music from all three games, in addition to exclusive and previously unreleased material. Series narrative designer, Tom Jubert, returns to provide an exclusive text and further insight into Penumbra's twisted tale. The series' dark, signature theme tunes and ambient soundscapes make this an essential purchase for any VGM or horror aficionado, not to mention the serious Penumbra fan.
"The Penumbra compilation soundtrack stands strong in the horror VGM category and is a more than welcome addition to the rather meager repertoire." -Square Enix Music Online (read the full review)
"The pieces are not only moody, beautifully orchestrated there are sound effects like howls and growls and other ambient sounds that will at times make your skin crawl." -Pixel Perfect Gaming (read the full review)
