Manor Lords

Slavic Magic

This highly-anticipated medieval strategy game is set to release April 2024. We spent over two years working on this amazing project and had a wealth of resources and people onboard to bring it to life and ensure the soundtrack was a success. In order to create this authentic soundscape we relied heavily on collaborating with live musicians both locally and abroad who specialise in medieval instruments. We also wrote grand cinematic suites that captured the beauty and epic visuals of the game. We sent our key team to London to record at AIR Studios with a live orchestra and choir.
