Gods Will Be Watching sounds like a very depressive game and I mean that in the best way possible. Basically you have to make these choices and each one has deep and mostly dark consequences. The scores is composer by Fingerspit who I know nothing about, but rest assured, no introductions is necessary, just let the music do the talking.
The music is retro in nature, but it’s not really really retro either. It’s not sounding like your 80s synths or has that 8/16-bit sounds. It’s a mix of new and old electronica and some orchestral music added for good measure. It’s very dreamy, very spacey which bodes well for the game. I can imagine myself really getting into this game while the music is playing. I can also imagine the music not standing out too much, just a nice presence in the background.
I’m really enjoying this score, although the score does go on for a long time and I never quite get to the point where I’m just thinking “Hey, this is really really awesome!”. To be fair, at one point I went “Hey, this is awesome!” and that was ‘Everdusk Theme’. This will probably be my go-to dreamy score though when I’m in the mood.
