Blacksad: Under The Skin
In this original adventure of the legendary private investigator John Blacksad, the story line is driven by a jazzy soundtrack worthy of the best Hollywood thrillers. Directed by Juan Miguel Martin (Pendulo Studios), this tribute to the 50's makes this soundtrack a classic of the genre.
Alfred Hitchcock, Vertigo
Another time, another cinematic atmosphere for this soundtrack also directed by Juan Miguel Martin with an accent given to suspense and intrigue. In the vein of Hitchcock's film scores, this soundtrack, just like the Pendulo Studios game, is a masterpiece in many ways and shows us that video game music can be up there with the best movie scores.
Another classic game from Pendulo Studios published by Microids, Yesterday Origins has a timeless soundtrack produced by in-house maestro: Juan Miguel Martin. Reflecting the game's plot, this album will take you on an adventurous journey filled with mystery illustrated by musical styles from different eras.
Californium is an adventure game developed by Darjeeling & Nova Productions, published by Arte in 2016. The game is an invitation to explore and deepen the themes addressed by Philip K. Dick in his various works. The American science fiction writer, who passed in 1982, is more alive than ever in today’s world through the numerous film and TV adaptations of his works (Blade Runner, Total Recall, Minority Report, The Man in the High Castle, etc.). This soundtrack, as tortured and volatile as the mind of Philip K. Dick, was produced by Xavier Thiry (Arkanoid, Eternal Battle) and is available for the first time on digital platforms!
