SO LET US MELT

 

"Across the 15 tracks and hour of music, you’ll be whisked away to a fantastical world full of wonder and delight and feel every part of its power at your finger tips. Easily one of the best classical releases of 2017, and one of the best game soundtracks of the year too – I urge you to pick this up." Higher Plain Music

Narrated by BAFTA-nominated actress Siobhan Finneran, So Let Us Melt is a game about friendship, gardening and singing. It’s inspired by 70s sci-fi movies like Silent Running. It’s about the idea of a home, and being alone, and doing your best, and about the wonder and joy of watching things grow and tells a touching story that at times melted (appropriate, considering the game’s title) my heart and took me on a tour of some wonderful VR environments. You can’t ask for much more than that, of taking care of things and people.

So Let Us Melt is a fireside story, a tale passed down the generations, from adult to child. It’s a story about the world we live in and how it got to be that way. It’s a story about friendship and duty, and the wonder of caring for things and helping them grow. It’s a story about a world being created and a machine who is left all alone and goes looking for his friends.

"The music, composed by Jessica Curry, carries an existentialism to it that suggests a grand significance to the events that unfold, quite fitting considering you’re watching an entire world being built before your eyes...this game will melt your heart." Upload VR
