Good Wednesday everyone. Apologies for the lack of a MWS last week, see my Friday post for hilarity and excuses galore!
Today I wanted to share a gem of a song from a gem of a game.
"Following Stanley" from The Stanley Parable. PC Game, 2013.
Game Developer: Davey Wreden (Half-Life 2 mod) / Galactic Cafe (remake)
Music Composed by: Blake Robinson
There have been only a few times in my life that I have burst out loud laughing because of a music cue. When this song came up while playing The Stanley Parable, I couldn't help but giggle quietly to myself. The music is so perfect for what's happening in the game at the time that music kicks in. Then when the semi-choir comes in with their "Buh-bup-puda-da-duh" bit, that's when the laughing took over full force.
I find this track in particular, when compared to the rest of the music on the album, to have a driving melody. I don't know if I could stand still for longer than a second in the game while this music plays. I'd give it a go, but I'm trying for the "Go Outside" achievement so that means I can't play the game for another 1598 days. I do have the original mod for Half-Life 2, but I've only dabbled in that and I haven't tried to figure out if that music is in there. Now if I could only remember how to get the "Following Stanely" bit to come up.
