Alkis Livathinos - Hue: Official Soundtrack
The Cologne-based record label Black Screen Records and Fiddlesticks Games, the developer of the indie sensation Hue, are teaming up to release the game’s critically acclaimed soundtrack by composer Alkis Livathinos as a limited collector’s edition on vinyl for the very time. The soundtrack comes on audiophile 180g coloured double vinyl, in a beautiful laser-cut gatefold sleeve with original artwork, full-coloured inner sleeves on heavy-weight cardboard, four exclusive and unreleased bonus tracks and remixes, sheet music for the heartbreaking Hue Main Theme and a unique download code to get the mp3s for free.
Hue is a vibrant, award-winning puzzle adventure, where you alter the world by changing its background colour. The game’s world is far from black and white - although everyone in his world sees in greyscale. On a journey to solve his mother’s disappearance, players piece together her discarded research, uncovering the ability to see and alter colour. As the background shifts between shades, rifts form and obstacles slip between realities. Along the way, Hue will meet a vast cast of imaginative characters in a witty and wonderful world filled with brilliantly inventive puzzles and a genuine sense of wonder.
Developed by Fiddlesticks Games and published and released by Curve Digital in August 2016, Hue’s beautiful piano soundtrack will finally get a limited collector’s edition on blue/purple and black/black 180g double vinyl. The vinyl soundtrack will be out on May 19th, 2017 through Black Screen Records. Pre-orders for the vinyl soundtrack are now up on www.blackscreenrecords.com
„Beautiful too, but more subdued, is Alkis Livathinos's music for the color-matching platform- puzzler Hue (listen on Spotify)... its music—featuring a wealth of introspective solo piano pieces— is captivating from first exposure.” - Waypoint (Best Game Soundtracks of 2016)
„Hue’s pleasures come less easily, hidden behind layers of color and interlocking spatial mechanics. Like Livathinos’s soundtrack though, the way they build together overtime yields something intimate and beautiful.” - Kotaku (The Story Behind Hue's Brilliant Soundtrack)
„Hue’s soundtrack is nothing short of fantastic! Through my entire playthrough of Hue the music flowed well, sound effects made sense, and the voice acting was fantastic. A big thing for games is that ambiance the score can bring to the title. And Hue’s is perfect.“ - TritonXP (Hue Review)
„One of my favourite in-game soundtracks of 2016. As soon as I heard the music from the title screen I know I was in for a treat. Each part of Hue has a very different look and feel, as well as its own accompanying music that really helps to make every area feel unique.“ - The Hidden Levels (Hue Review)
