Robert Holmes to Compose Score for Gray Matter

There’s good news for all adventure game fans all over the world, as confirmed by genre queen Jane Jensen in her Gray Matter development blog today:

Adventure game music veteran Robert Holmes is composing the soundtrack for her upcoming masterpiece, Gray Matter. Robert Holmes became famous when he did the first music scores for the Gabriel Knight adventure games, which also made author Jane Jensen popular.

As Jane Jensen states in her blog entry, Robert Holmes composed several music tracks for the Gray Matter soundtrack. Other pieces have been created by independent band The Scarlet Furies, also formed by Robert Holmes. Jane Jensen offers a free MP3 download on her Gray Matter blog:

Hamburg/Germany-based Periscope Studios were hired for recording and dubbing all music and sound effects. They are a young, but still very experienced company who have already worked on a number of computer game releases.

Gray Matter will be the first new full-size adventure game by the famous adventure author since the release of Gabriel Knight 3. Staying true to the Jensen-style, the story interweaves gruesome incidents and supernatural events.

Neurobiologist Dr. David Styles is one of the main characters in the game. Ever since losing his wife in a terrible car accident many years ago, he has become a recluse, leaving his English mansion Dread Hill House only on rare occasions.

Student and street artist Samantha Everett shows up on his door step unexpectedly, at a time when Styles just happens to be looking for a new assistant. Originally from America, she has been traveling Europe for the last few years, so she could really use the money. Her first assignment involves finding six volunteers for an experiment planned by Dr. Styles at Oxford University.

The experiment begins harmlessly enough, but soon strange things start happening. Styles is visited by his beloved, but deceased wife. Now it is up to Sam to solve the mysteries of Dread Hill House.

In Gray Matter, the player takes control of Dr. David Styles as well as Samantha Everett as they are trying to unveil secrets and find the truth.

dtp entertainment will release Gray Matter worldwide in 2010.
