In another example of game developer talent moving away from bigger companies and publishers to make their own teams, many of the audio engineers and musicians from Harmonix—the studio that brought us Guitar Hero and Rock Band—have split off to found SkewSound. The dedicated sound studio has teamed up with Prologue Games to score their current project: the three-act noir adventure Knee Deep. It looks pretty neat, and the trailer’s moody soundtrack hits all the right notes for what the game seems to want to be.

As it stands, the game is still in its
Steam Greenlight stage, but its soundtrack alone is already impressive. A blog post on the Prologue Games page by the SkewSound crew includes some more samples, as well. I quite like the cross-section, almost stage-esque aesthetic Prologue has taken with the project.

Our Verdict


Stefan Terry
One of my earliest memories with games was just after Pokémon had come out in the states for the first time. I remember, after having watched the show for a couple weeks, stumbling across a friend with an original Gameboy playing Pokémon Red version using a Weedle. When he told me he was playing Pokémon, I told him I didn't know there was a Pokémon that had a pumpkin for a head. Boy games have come a long way. Speaking of games, I also contribute to making them somewhat professionally, and ocassionaly write about them. You should see some of that games writing stuff, I hear it's real popular with the kids these days.
