We are very excited to announce that the award-winning video game development studio The Chinese Room and Black Screen Records have teamed up to release Jessica Curry’s incredible soundtrack to the indie hit and genre defining video game Dear Esther on limited edition 180g double vinyl just in time for the game’s 5th anniversary on February 14th, 2017.

The soundtrack comes on two 180g 12“ vinyl records, both cut at 45RPM for best sound quality, features original artwork by BAFTA Breakthrough Brit 2016 and The Chinese Room artist Alex Grahame and liner notes by The Chinese Room co-founder and composer Jessica Curry. This vinyl release includes a free Steam key that enables the customer to download the game and the soundtrack for free via Steam.

Dear Esther is the award-winning first-person exploration game that paved the way for The Chinese Room's collaboration with Frictional Games on Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs and the BAFTA-winning Everybody's Gone to the Rapture. It’s a ghost story, told using first-person gaming technologies. Rather than traditional gameplay the focus here is on exploration, uncovering the mystery of the island, of who you are and why you are here. Fragments of story are randomly uncovered when exploring the various locations of the island, making every each journey a unique experience. Dear Esther features a stunning, specially commissioned soundtrack from composer Jessica Curry.

Originally released on PC and Mac in 2012, Dear Esther was brought to PlayStation 4 & Xbox One with the Landmark Edition in 2016, which featured a directors' commentary, remastered audio, added accessibility features and trophies / achievements. For more info visit: www.dear-esther.com
