Horror Adventure ‘Stray Souls’ Announces Silent Hill Composer Akira Yamaoka Working on the Music

Stray Souls is a new horror IP that was announced during the Summer Games Fest, little details have surfaced, but today developer Jukai Studio released a trailer announcing a legend was going to be working with them. The trailer was released on Youtube and was accompanied by a Steam Community post that sound design was the first key to immersing a player into their world.

The post then goes on to describe that Silent Hill was a significant influence on Stray Souls so it only makes sense to have the legendary Akira Yamaoka working alongside veteran indie composer Pete Welch.

Akira Yamaoka has a long-standing career in the game industry, dating all the way back to 1994 with Konami. However, his most recognized and influential music was featured in the original Silent Hill for PlayStation. So, having him for a horror game is a step in the right direction for any horror game enthusiast.

You can view the official trailer announcing Yamaoka’s involvement below:

In Stray Souls, players will play as Daniel, a young teen who has inherited a house from his long-estranged grandmother, which brings him to Aspen Falls. He must fight off hordes of creatures while figuring out the secrets hidden in the town and uncover a sinister conspiracy surrounding his birth.

Stray Souls will release later this year for Playstation, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC. The Steam news post from Jukai Studios contains more information.
