Telltale Autumn Sale

TWD Game Soundtrack/ Music discussion

edited March 2013 in The Walking Dead
First of all, great game! Other than the crackly audio in the voice overs the game was pretty much perfect. Although I thought the music was great, I really love the opening theme from the TV show. Any chance on incorporating it in some way in future episodes?

    Nope, sorry, that music is owned by AMC and we're not partnered up with them at all. Jared Emerson-Johnson did a fantastic job on our game's score, though.

    That's too bad. Oh well, tell him he did a great job with what we got. Thanks for the quick reply!

    How about a release of Mr. Emerson-Johnson's The Walking Dead music? ;)

    I noticed that his work on Bone was put up for free, but I would gladly shell out some money for a CD or digital download of The Walking Dead score.

    We may release a soundtrack after Episode 5 comes out, but it's too early to give any concrete information on that at this point.

    Hey everyone does anyone know where I can find the ingame music online??

    The in game music isn't available online. Maybe we should consider selling or releasing a downloadable soundtrack or something...
  • edited April 2012
    That would be great :) all the music in this is really good.

    Yes, please do that. After relasing the CD-Version of Sam & Max Season 3 OST, of course. ;)

    I think it would be a great idea to add on if you guys do decide to release a special edition after the series.

    Keep up the amazing work.

    LOL :D

    I would buy both for a fair price (Digital Delivery version, so it appears under "your stuff" section like the JP soundtrack)! ;)

    what ar the story trailer song? is very cool:)
  • edited October 2012
    May I just say that I am very interested in the possibility of an official soundtrack release? It would be easiest accessed by me through Steam, so please consider adding a Walking Dead The Game OST DLC in the future; I love this music. Every single song. Beautiful. Thank you so much for making this game.

    Should consider? It should have been already planned. ;)
    Yes, please do that. After releasing the CD-Version of Sam & Max Season 3 OST, of course. ;)

    A CD version actually cost a lot more to produce, an online downloadable version would actually be easier and less of a financial worry since they don't have to worry about packaging/publication costs. Just saiyan ;)

    The music is just awesome. I especially love the one during the credits :) It always reminds me of the end of episode 2!
  • edited October 2012
    I love this one so much

    Also, you should definitely release the tracks at some point.

    Can we get guitar tabs for songs like Chucks Spirit healing, the best for you (when teaching Clem to shoot the gun) and hopefully tabs get released for Alela Diane's take us back track at the very end of the series. (there is on one awful site and the song it to rare to be known)

    God I can't wait for the OST!

    I want to use so much of this music at my weekend D&D table; aside from, you know, putting it all on my iPhone and just LISTENING to it.

    I have to admit, for mood-music, this actually beats my Mass Effect 1/2/3 compilation...'cause, I don't know if this makes sense, but the music itself FEELS real.

    I cant wait for the soundtrack too...:( so badly I want it :)

    I would love to see the soundtrack go on sale. The music is so atmospheric, and it really addded to the experience.
  • edited November 2012
    Registered to say this. The soundtrack is brilliant, would love to see it be made available.
  • edited November 2012
    This is my favorite track. Wish that this could be incorporated into season 2:

    i'm from argentina, my english is poor and, right now, i'm thinking this is one of the best games i ever played.

    the sountrack is epic and very, very touching.
    i hope, some day, i could buy this piece of art.

    thanks.
  • edited December 2012
    Agreed, all the tracks are awesome. I don't know what's taking them so long to release the ost, the music is already done and people are asking for it. Don't you want to please your fans and earn a few more dollars in the process Telltale :D?
  • edited December 2012
    I also agree that the OST needs to be released.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h6-9QF-qw08

    IMO best track in the game hands down. Even if season two winds up having mostly new music I strongly feel that Armed With Death needs to be added in to the climax of one of the episodes.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ePFxuu9lik

    Alive Inside is another one that needs to make a return. I personally feel those two songs are as iconic to the game as the main theme from the TV series is to that.
  • edited December 2012
    As awesome as Armed with Death is, I think it should die with Lee. It's basically the Alive Inside motif made awesomified.

    Alive Inside is basically Clementine + Lee's motif in its most common form. A variation of that motif should play if Clem's in Season 2. However, I don't think it should have that same "hopeful" feeling that Alive Inside has (whenever it plays G Major, the song feels so happy - "Goodbye" takes away that G Major and makes it a B Minor, which is why the finale sounds so depressing even though it's the "same" melody).

    No love for Aiming Protection? It was even remixed for the VGAs. I can't provide links since im on an IPhone and I'm also lazy.

    The in game music was fantastic. Better than the show's, imho.

    This song gets me every time. That goes for most of the music, though. The ending scene's too...not just the credits.

    I registered here just to post in this thread )

    I join the community in eager anticipation of an official release of the TWD score!
    In terms of its immersion and emotional gravitas the game owes so much to Jared Emerson-Johnson's beautiful work.

    Personally, I can't get enough of the Tension track, so deliciously moody:

    Also, I really hope they make it available in lossless (CD quality).

    Over the past few hours I have been ripping the soundtrack of "The Walking Dead" from the game files and adding id3 tags/album art to it. Note: Take Us Back is actually a remix made by telltale games, not the official version.

    Thanks for your effort. TWD's soundtrack has become one of my favorite scores of all time.

    Does anyone know if this will ever be out on CD?
  • edited March 2013
    Fantastic, you're a hero for doing this!

    I can't believe how much time it's taken Telltale to do this and you did it in a few hours :P

    Is this even allowed to be shared here? We dont own the rights to share this.

    I recall reading on here that Telltale has an OST in the works at the moment, so you're probably right.
