Composition[]

The seven 60s timely songs by the Wellington Wells band The Make Believes were created and performed by four musicians from Montreal, Canada:

  • Murray A. Lightburn - Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass (The Dears)
  • Brad Barr - Lead Vocals, Guitar (The Barr Brothers)
  • Andrew Barr - Drums, Percussion, Backing Vocals (The Barr Brothers)
  • Patrick Watson - Lead Vocals, Keyboards

The gameplay and atmospheric score was composed by Nicolas Marquis, while the cinematic music was by Jon Licht. [1] The sound design was made by Valentino Lercher.

The music for the game was made using the Moog Modular and the Vox Continental, a synthesizer and organ (respectively) that were introduced in the early 1960's, both of which were used by bands such as The Beatles, The Doors, The Animals, and Rolling Stones.

"I Have Seen Everything" was composed by Murray A. Lightburn. It only appears in the Lightbearer DLC.

Buff EarsToTheGround.png Track List[]

Do note that some tracks may be louder or quieter than others.

The tracks also had to be recorded during gameplay due to the raw audio files being inaccessible, with some needing minor edits so match how it sounds in the game. The recorded audio was provided by SamIsNotHere69.

* Some tracks do not have official titles.

Important note; Most cutscenes throughout the game has all of the dialogue, sound effects, and music playing at the same time, meaning they're not affected by the sliders in the audio option menu, and can only be heard through the dialogue slider. This audio included.

Until the raw audio files can be found/extracted, this audio will be the only exception for the time being, as all other cases has the background music getting drowned out by the dialogue and sound effects.
