Here's the latest episode of our weekly podcast dedicated to videogame music – Sound of Play

For many of us, it’s hard to think of almost any videogame without our minds conjuring up the music that accompanied it. What we aim to bring you with Sound of Play is a diverse sample of our favourite pieces from the many air-punching, spine-tingling, tear-jerking and grin-inducing videogame soundtracks we’ve heard over the years. Of course it’s not just about what we like, so if you venture over to our forum at caneandrinse.com you can put forward your favourites and we’ll start to include a selection in the playlist for each show.

This show’s presenters were Ryan Hamann and guest Ryan Quintal

along with community contributions from Todinho, Flabyo, and GoodShrewsbury

Good show this week! And as you prompted me...

Fable began development at Big Blue Box when they were an independent entity. They then joined Lionhead as a satellite studio, alongside Intrepid (who were making BC). A third studio was spun off to do Black and White 2 (and that was where I worked).

Around the time BC was cancelled and Intrepid closed the satellites were brought in as subbteams under the lionhead name. I assume the reasons for the original split and subsequent merging were financial. I moved to the Fable team when they were about 4 months into Fable 2, and stayed on that team till I left the company just after Fable: The Journey launched.

(Another aside, Danny Elfman only composed the main title theme for Fable 1, everything else in that game and all the rest was Russell Shaw. Elfman is still credited in Fable 2 because we were stIll using one or two leitmotif from the original title theme, but those were dropped after that game)

Well, I say everything else, but the music for Fable Heroes was done by Rare's composition team, it's kinda obvious when you hear it :)

"Vamos allá" means "We go there." Vamo' is a regional way of saying vamos (like gonna or eatin' in English).

Though I kind of prefer the flat earth translation. :D

Apologies to Russell Shaw. I'll make sure to do a shout out to that on the next Sound of Play that I host. Also, thanks for the history on that, Glen! I knew there was some interesting history there :)

Haha, we weren't even close on that translation, were we, Gallo? I'm wondering where Ryan Q. got that "flat earth" idea from in the first place.

And props to Ryan Q for the suggestion on VHS Glitch. Up my alley for sure, and I second that recommendation for any who liked that Power Glove track.

I had forgotten how pretty some of Fable's music was. I think Temple of Light also played inside the Demon Doors, because I heard that and remembered it a lot more than I ever visited the temple. In fact I found the inside of the Demon Doors so tranquil and the music so lovely I would often enter a Demon Door just before I took a break so I'd have that music in the background.
