The Path Soundtrack! (Pre-Order is GO!)

April 24th, 2010 by Auriea

Yes! This is really happening!
You can now pre-order The Path Soundtrack CD! Or choose the absolutely beautiful CD + T-Shirt package. All created by our friends at UK based label Paradigms Recordings.

The CD is a limited edition digipak. Only 500 have been printed. Paradigms will be shipping the pre-orders at the beginning of May.

Here’s the blurb:

Paradigms Recordings is very proud to announce a rather special new release – “THE PATH” is the haunting soundtrack to the boutique computer game of the same name, developed by Tale Of Tales Studios. Kris Force (Amber Asylum / Neurosis) and the legendary Swans vocalist Jarboe were comissioned to compose the music for, narrate and vocalise this dark horror concept. The result is one hour of truly mesmerizing, disturbing, blackened fairy tale sonics. From delicate songwriting to Jarboe’s demonic, possessed rasp all wrapped up in dense, claustrophobic atmospheres and harrowing stories, this is some of the most potent work from these two distinguished artists.

Needless to say we here at Tale of Tales are breathlessly excited to get the soundtrack out there! :D

leisurely making poster “tattoos” was a very pleasant way to spend the morning!
I hope everyone enjoys the personalizations on the posters. :)

The Path never ends

April 6th, 2010 by Auriea

Our main blog may be closed but The Path blog rolls on!

In fact, expect major announcements. Including the long awaited, coming of The Path Soundtrack album, coming later this month!

And here’s an overview of what went has gone on recently:
We published The Path postmortem chronicling the making of the game. This was a great way for us to look back on the history of the project, even if it is impossible to describe 3 years of development in a summary fashion!

On The Path blog there were 10 days of posts written from a very personal perspective to supplement the grand postmortem essay. These stories were full of insights about the Red Girls and their Wolves. And we uploaded tons of work in progress imagery, drawings and screenshots covering the entire development, on Flickr on The Path Archive. So if you are curious about the making of the game, have a look at all the Anniversary posts listed there.

The Path translations patch for windows received an upgrade. And these translations are now available for our Steam players as well.

We published 2 new interviews with artists that we consider inspirational and whom we wanted more people to know about.

The special Anniversary Edition USB stick version of the game +poster is still available in our online store.

And there is more to come. Keep an eye on this blog via RSS or follow us on twitter or facebook for updates!
