Journey composer to score upcoming Leisure Suit Larry remake
Grammy-nominated artist Austin Wintory to compose for Kickstarter-funded project.
Austin Wintory, renowned for creating the music of PS3 title Journey, has another, decidedly less experimental game he's composing for.
According to a recent interview on Polygon, Wintory will be composing the score for the upcoming Leisure Suit Larry remake from developer Replay Games. Leisure Suit Larry creator Al Lowe reached out to Wintory during the Spike VGA awards on the weekend of December 7.
The composer stated that he had experience in writing "sexy music" for films; the game developers made sure that Wintory was comfortable creating "seedy, back alley kind of stuff", given the nature of the Leisure Suit Larry series, according to the Polygon story.
The Leisure Suit Larry remake was successfully funded via Kickstarter. The game is scheduled to be out in the first quarter of 2013 for PC, Mac, iOS and Android platforms. The soundtrack for Journey was recently nominated for a Grammy for the Best Score Soundtrack For Visual Media category.
