Award Winning Composer to Score Raiders of the Broken Planet

MercurySteam, the award winning independent development studio from Madrid – Spain is excited to announce that its upcoming online 4 vs 1 asymmetric sci fi adventure Raiders of the Broken Planet will be scored by award winning film and game composer, Oscar Araujo.

Oscar has previously worked with the studio on several video game scores including the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow series of games, as well as American McGee presents Scrapland. Oscar’s work on the Castlevania games is considered by many to be one of the greatest game scores ever produced.

“Having Oscar back to help us deliver something truly memorable for Raiders is something we are all very excited about,” said Enric Alvarez, the Game Director. “He always brings something exceptional to a score that adds oodles of atmosphere and sets the scene for the World and the Characters in it. Our adventure in space needs a very different approach to Oscar’s previous work but nevertheless he is rising to the occasion with a score which suits the game perfectly”

“I feel very comfortable working with my friends at MercurySteam once again and I’m so excited by this world of adventure they are creating in Raiders of the Broken Planet” Remarked Oscar, “It’s really making me approach my work in a new way. My hope is that the game’s music will bring a stylish sense of adventure to the game.”
