GAMEPLAY: Horror

Immortality
The 2022 cinematic horror game Immortality charges players with unraveling the mystery of an actress’s disappearance. Nainita Desai composed a haunting original score.

This week, we're exploring a variety of scoring approaches to horror-themed games.

Listen for music from games like A Plague Tale: Requiem, which takes place in 14th-century France during the Black Death, Immortality, where players manipulate video footage to solve a mystery and more.

Generous support for the music heard on this program comes from the Robert T. and Ruth Haidt Hughes Memorial Acquisitions Fund.

Thanks to Michael Culler for engineering assistance and to Christine Kyprianides and Delia Zaleski for production assistance.

Amanda Sewell is IPR's Music Director, and Keith Brown is GAMEPLAY’s host and executive producer.
