  1. Whitney, I see your Roger Baker and raise you the Tomb of the Cybermen soundtrack:
  2. @ Otherbuttons Please don't get me wrong - I'm not saying pop songs per se are bad, but only the ones that are completely guileless and innocent and don't have anything creepy (or, indeed, too jolly) about them. (As Martin Gore of Depeche Mode once pointed out, you can get away with a hell of a lot more if you're writing pop songs.) By that yardstick, Puppet on a String would be an ideal addition to the mixtape- but it's disqualified as it came out after 1964. Unlike these ostensibly benign little numbers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AD-M_sWs-x8
  3. Lots of games have great soundtracks - be it GTA: Vice City's 1980s retro binge or Fallout 3's perpetual jukebox. With that in mind, what would a WHF mixtape consist of? Well, we can ignore anything released from the mid 60s onwards as you're talking about a period of time where London was swinging, but heading in a different direction. (Also, the game is set in 1964.) Psychedelic rock, doom metal and hauntology are out of the window because they're channelling the 70s (though Scarfolk - the game raises intriguing possibilities). Secondly, the music needs to reflect the unease and retro futurism of the game, so anything too happy and poppy is verboten (hurh!) too. Anything which provides an ironic counterpoint to the game's content, however, is welcome. With that in mind, here are my first three tracks: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7dRBseHcvwg Oh, and: Over to you...
  4. Many thanks for your answers! You would have to ask our art director about that, 'cause I inherited him. That must have been one hell of a will reading.
  5. Kids = Joy? Well, they can be such a burden otherwise:
  6. Joy certainly counts as 'Special Stuff'.
  7. Really interesting game! Some questions though: i. If England was occupied during WW2, what about the rest of the United Kingdom? ii. 'We Happy Few' is, of course, a quote from Shakespeare's Henry V, notable for featuring the Battle of Agincourt which took place on St. Crispin's Day. Am I right in thinking this has some or a lot of significance? iii. 1964 was also the year the Doctor Who serial, "The Dalek Invasion of Earth" took place. Coincidence, or an excuse for some gratuitous allusions? iv. The PC in the early build videos looks a lot like Louis Theroux. Coincidence? v. Are you fans of Scarfolk Council? Or are you local to ?
