No Music

Does anyone else play the game with no music? It always gives stuff away so I turn it off when I play.

  • I can never play games without the music D:
  • I always leave the music on,I just love it. :)
  • I think the music really helps give the scenes emotion and atmosphere. For example, i can't imagine playing the end of episode two without the music score that plays. It just doesn't feel right.
  • I actually prefer movies that exclude music and only add in what's present in the scene. Instead of having a meta-soundtrack, you would hear a radio or some sort of music coming from the character's car radio, or while they're in a bar, or something like that. I actually replayed a lot of the game without music and I feel a lot more immersed.

    Also, the music changes tend to give stuff away.
  • I can't imagine myself playing without music. I tried, but it didn't work.
  • Meh, i tried, but it just didn't get me into the mood. I think the music is what makes the scenes even more powerful.
  • damn, I don't even remember the music from the game. All I remember is birds chirping at the start.

  • I think the music is a huge strength to the game. Other than that one heavy handed track for the burial, I think it's an excellently underscored soundtrack that adds atmosphere, emotion and poignancy to many of the main story beats.

    That said, I could see certain parts still working without the music. The second big moment in Episode 3 could have terrific impact if there was just dead silence after the moment happens.

    I still petition that Telltale consider releasing the soundtrack for purchase. I'd totally buy it and listen to it over and over!
  • I actually played the entire thing without music, and Episode 2 is so much more immersive.
