The entire soundtrack was composed specifically for the game by Canadian musician Jean- François Racine, “I’ve been playing Piano since childhood, studied jazz piano in college and continued my musical adventure studying composition and interactive music at university.
These days I compose for a variety of projects from video games to classical music ensembles as wells as producing electronic music under the name of Frootz and Detoor”
“We were the first studio to trust Jean-François with a full game soundtrack and we don’t regret that decision one bit. Jean-François might be a newcomer, but I know he’s just getting started and we’re looking forward to his next work. His melodies helped define the game’s tone of threat and wonder. I believe that it will stick in players’ memories for a long time.” said Guillaume Boucher-Vidal, CEO of Nine Dots Studio
