Adventure Game Scene of the Day — Monday 22 October 2012
Since I’ve decided to revive the Adventure Game of the Day, I haven’t had much time for my favourite thread ever. So this week I thought I’d combine one of my favourite subjects, game music, and the bane of my existence, the AGSD, and showcase a few scenes that just wouldn’t be the same without their music. Click on the list below the screenshot to listen to the accompanying piece of music.
We begin the week with To the Moon, and the haunting piece of piano music that keeps playing at various points in the game with different arrangements, until it reaches its full, final version (and final title!) in the ending. That piece is an integral part of the story, and the ending wouldn’t be the same without it.
Recently finished: Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse (R) (4/5) | Detective Di (3.5/5) | Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations (R) (4.5/5) | Heaven’s Vault (3/5) | Ace Attorney: Justice For All (R) (3.5/5) | Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (R) (4.5/5) | Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space (R) (4.5/5) | The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker (abandoned) (2/5) | Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (3.5/5) | The Sexy Brutale (R) (4/5)
Awesome game. Hauntingly beautiful and emotional, with simply great story-telling, and the music is probably even better!
One of my favourite games of recent years…

I got this from the Indie Royale bundle and plan to play it soon. I’ll have tissues ready.
I wasn’t crazy about the graphics but the game is a favourite for me - I loved the story & the significance of the music!
