Developer inkle announced that their story adventure, A Highland Song, will launch for Nintendo Switch, PC via Steam, and Mac on December 5, 2023.

The game’s soundtrack is composed by the following:
“…Laurence Chapman alongside two multi-award-winning giants of the Scottish folk scene, TALISK and Fourth Moon. Royalty of the festival circuit, these two bands combine virtuosic instrumental playing with fast, inventive rhythms, to produce new tunes in traditional styles played with beauty, energy and swagger.”
