Remote Control and Boss Battle Records are pleased to announce the release of Wasteland Remastered (Original Soundtrack). The soundtrack by Edwin Montgomery follows the highly anticipated official release of the game today via InXile.
Wasteland Remastered is a remake of the 1988 cult classic Wasteland. Originally released in 1988, Wasteland brought the post-apocalypse to video games and inspired a genre. Play one of history’s defining RPGs with completely overhauled graphics, sound, and expanded musical score.
The year is 2087, nearly a century after an all-out nuclear war turned vast swaths of the Earth into a radioactive hellscape. You are a Desert Ranger, a band of stalwart lawmen who are the only hope left in what was once the American southwest, and good people’s last defense against hunger, sickness, ravaging raiders, and mutants.
Now something more secretive and sinister is menacing humanity, and it’s your job to investigate. Recruit help and follow leads—the choices you make will shape the world around you. Choose wisely, your life and the lives of those you’re sworn to protect depend on it.
The soundtrack is by Melbourne based composer Edwin Montgomery known for his epic orchestral soundtrack to Warhammer 40,000: Regicide (nominated for Best Audio at the Australian Game Developer Awards) and many trailers for popular titles including Game of Thrones, Ghost in the Shell, and Neverwinter: Ravenloft, as well as his live solo performances of original multi-instrumental film scores including rescoring Werner Herzog’s Fata Morgana.
The soundtrack explores ambient and melodic textures, blending neoclassicism, Eno-esque ambiance and field recordings, minimalist synthesizers reminiscent of a John Carpenter 80’s sci-fi film, and the occasional spaghetti western guitar; It sounds like if Vangelis scored the next Mad Max film.
