Aliens a Comic Book Adventure the original soundtrack from the game produced by Cryo and edited by Mindscape under the license of FOX…
It took me 15 years to finally publish this music. The reason for this delay is first that Fox decided to cancel the game just after its release, and with a restricting order obliged Cryo and Mindscape to stop their sales. I invested myself a lot into this game where I was credited as Lead Programmer, Scenarist, Producer and Musician. The cancellation of this game was hard to understand, the game got good reviews and was very original in all its aspects, it sold + 200.000 units in 1 month on PC only and got some rave reviews and awards. This was what decided me to stop doing video games. It took me about 10 years to open again the data, video and sounds of this game, but it was not possible to get the masters, because the music was specifically designed to be played on the AWE32 soundcard and this part was not available anymore 10 years after.
I finally managed to get almost all the tunes from the original game, but were missing 2 main titles that were in really bad 128Khz quality and were not publishable. Thanks Steve Schiets who contacted me recently and who saved all the original songs from the game. He friendly gave me the 2 missing tunes and I was able to finally, after 15 years of waiting, publish the official soundtrack for this game.
I have received several requests from some customers about this music, I hope that its availability in all the major online stores will fill the empty space, and will make some happy listeners.
I have also added 2 bonus tracks created for the AWE32 soundcard specifically for this game but which were never been used.
