Pentiment’s Soundtrack is Coming to Vinyl Next Year

Pentiment review 1 (1)

Want to fill you ears with Pentiment’s soundtrack? It’s available now on digital and coming next year to vinyl.

Yes, Obsidian’s ye olde detective game Pentiment does have a soundtrack. As we pointed out in our review, it uses music very sparingly but this album is well worth a listen. It’s the work of Alkemie, a medieval ensemble who spent the last three years working on the game’s soundtrack. What’s particularly impressive is that the group used period-appropriate to create the game’s music.

Unfortunately, it’s not available on Bandcamp, though you can find the band’s 2019 live album there. However, you can listen to it on Spotify, purchase it from iTunes and so on. It’s also available through Steam, priced at £6.37 (currently discounted by 25%).

There are a total of 37 tracks, which are as follows:

1 Title Screen
2 Title Sequence
3 City of Reason
4 Rüdeger’s Rehearsal

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
