And What’s Vorax: Survival Horror All About?
Developed and published by our very own IndieGala, VORAX is an Open World Survival Horror game set on a Mediterranean island. It’s also a game where a mysterious pathogen has infected the local population.
An army battalion is sent to quarantine the population but 48 hours later all communication with the battalion is lost. What was supposed to be a simple mission quickly turns into a fight for survival. As your helicopter crashes, stranding you on the island, alone. But you are a mercenary sent to investigate.
You’re also low on food. Not to mention you’re equipped with only a small survival kit. So, you’ll need to craft tools, build barricades, fences, and traps as well as find, and upgrade. You’ll also maintain your shelter to survive as you uncover the dark origins of the virus.
Do you have what it takes to survive the voracious creatures that hunt you?
And yes. As we mentioned, our Vorax Open Alpha Ready to Play is finally here. You can gain access to a 10 times bigger map (10 square kilometers), vehicles, new weapons, and zones. We are talking about new weapons, an expanded map, new enemies and a whole lot more. The exclusive open alpha opportunity is for the most loyal fans. Vorax has an updated Steam demo and an updated full build as well. Don’t miss out on that as well.
Vorax: Survival Horror And Some Kick-Ass Soundtracks
So… Which other survival games have some fantastic soundtracks? Scroll down to find out. We already explored the best video game soundtracks here at IndieGala. However, that was for the Rhythm Sprout game, and we were not solely confined to the survival horror genre. This time we are, and we’re all about the best soundtracks that accompany the best survival horror games.
Resident Evil 4
Not only is the entire Resident Evil franchise one of the best in the entire gaming history. But at the same time, Resident Evil 4 is often considered one of the most influential. The installment may be praised for its mechanics, but oftentimes people forget that it has one hell of a soundtrack. Most of the tracks add to the creepy and morose atmosphere of the game. Which only adds to the already incredible experience. However, out of all the tracks that are on the soundtrack, “Echo in the Night,” really stands out. It plays right after Leon rescues Ashley, and they’re moving through the village. It’s dark and scary and the soundtrack exacerbates that feeling of impending dread.
You can purchase Resident Evil titles here at IndieGala. Yes. RE4 is there as well.
Silent Hill 2
There’s no way we mention RE games but we omit Silent Hill games here. Both games have amazing soundtracks, but Silent Hill 2 really stands out. Composed by the famous video game musician Akira Yamaoka, the main Silent Hill titles all have some of the scariest and saddest tracks in any game ever made. However, White Noiz from Silent Hill 2 is something else. It plays in the game’s opening cutscene when James Sunderland is in the restroom and deserves an honorable mention on this list.
Silent Hill Homecoming is available for purchase here at IndieGala.
Left 4 Dead 2
Left 4 Dead 2 is a fan favorite. The FPS survival horror game is quite possibly one of the best video games ever made. But the soundtrack is not too shabby either. Yes, the soundtrack is not your typical in-your-face soundtrack. It’s simple, yet effective. Not to mention, creepy. And it blends nicely with the post-apocalyptic themes of the game. The Parish’s version of the menu theme deserves a mention. And so does The Monsters Without. Even though it’s less than ten seconds long, The Monsters Without is a perfect song for reaching a safe room. Especially if your team barely manages to limp their way inside ahead of the zombies. L4D2’s version is equally awesome.
Dying Light put a unique twist on the very familiar survival horror concept. But so did the soundtrack, to be honest. Dying Light strives to provide the players with a sense of agency. You have to be running all over, so why not have the soundtrack reflect that? The tracks have synths, horns, and strings that are all combined in such a way that they evoke fear. And running from infected zombies somehow makes the soundtrack that much better. Paweł Błaszczak allows you to immerse yourself in the grim atmosphere of the quarantine zone. And he does a good job at that.
Last but not least. The Dead Space franchise is one of the most unique horror franchises for sure. But frankly so is the soundtrack. It’s absolutely packed full of memorable and unique horror pieces, so yeah. It deserves to be on this list. It has creepy strings, industrial ringing, and eclectic pieces that reflect the composer’s background. Jason Graves’s background is in classical music and composition for film and television. He then transitioned into video games, and it shows. The developers wanted dark and “Aleatoric in style”, ranging from eerie sounds to loud cacophonous sections. And it’s exactly what they got.
