MediEvil Resurrection was the 3rd game in the popular PlayStation Series from Sony. The first two games came out on the PlayStation 1 in 1998 and 2000 respectively. This titles was effectively a reboot of designs from the first game but this time as a launch title for the PlayStation Portable (PSP) in 2004. It was also the first game in the series that we managed to persuade Sony to record with a live symphony orchestra and choir (the first 2 orchestral scores were produced with synths & samplers).
There was a certain irony that we get the budget to record an orchestra on a game with speakers the size of a smartphone. This sequence is the final sequence from the game (spoiler alert!) but it’s 11 years old so hopefully we’re OK! We did all of the sound here, the music, sound design and mix.
The visuals were rendered by Axis animation, game developed by Sony Cambridge, sound by Andrew Barnabas and Paul Arnold!
