Last Day of June Soundtrack Available
Steven Wilson announces that the soundtrack of the acclaimed videogame
developed by Ovosonico will be released digitally tomorrow 1st of December
CALABASAS, Calif . – 30th November 2017 – 505 Games and Ovosonico’s critically-acclaimed and award-winning Last Day of June (already available for purchase as a digital download on Steam and PlayStation store) becomes a new digital album which will be available from tomorrow, Friday, December the 1st.
Born from an all-star collaboration of creators – including critically acclaimed director Massimo Guarini (Murasaki Baby, Shadow of the Damned, Naruto: Rise of a Ninja), award-winning musician and record producer Steven Wilson, and Jess Cope (animator on Tim Burton’s “Frankenweenie” and director for Metallica’s “Here Comes Revenge” music video) – Last Day of June has been a true artistic innovation and one of the most emotional gaming experience of the year.
“I design video games but I normally draw inspiration from personal life experiences and other medias. This is probably why Last Day of June feels like it’s designed to go beyond games and Steven’s music has undoubtedly played a huge role in this.” said Massimo Guarini, CEO and Creative Director, Ovosonico.
“I wanted to craft a unique interactive experience while delivering a powerful message, and Steven’s sensibility towards melancholy and melody resonated so strongly in me, we ended up creating something unique together without even being really aware of it.”
“It’s been one of my long-held ambitions to score a movie and, in a way, I feel like I’ve done that now” said Steven Wilson. “After sequencing the tracks that Massimo selected it was surprising to me how much the soundtrack felt so cohesive, as if the music was written specifically for the project. I’d never thought videogames could be ‘art’ before – having seen and experienced Last Day Of June, I’m now convinced they can be”.
