From the publisher: When video game icon Sonic The Hedgehog debuted on the SEGA Genesis in 1991, he shook up the action-platform genre with his signature speed and rebellious attitude. More than 44 million units later, Sonic celebrates his 15th anniversary and blazes his way onto the next generation consoles for an epic adventure designed to deliver the most intense sensation of speed experienced to date.

The game is set in Soleanna, the beautiful city of water. In his first adventure set in the human world, Sonic meets a beautiful princess named Elise, whom he quickly befriends, but Princess Elise is abducted by none other than the calculating Dr. Eggman who is working under dark and sinister motives, to destroy this special kingdom of hers. In order to restore safety and serenity, Sonic must maneuver his way through a series of adventures and challenges where he will encounter and interact with a bevy of allies and enemies, and ultimately go head to head against the menacing doctor to thwart his malicious plans. Along the way, Sonic once again meets with Shadow, who has a past with Soleanna, and also encounters a mysterious character named Silver. Blocking him with unique supernatural powers, even the Blue dude with 'tude will find it difficult to out-maneuver the enigmatic Silver! As Sonic speeds through the huge kingdom, the mysteries unravel.

From the publisher: Original Soundtrack of Scratches, the award-winning, first-person horror adventure game developed by Nucleosys. Composed and produced by Cellar of Rats (including "credits" track composed by Daniel Cordes), this soundtrack contains 19 tracks of in-game music spanning 52 minutes, edited for standalone CD release.

The music is dark - combination of sampled-orchestral scores and dark-ambient soundscapes; underscores of locations and situations in the game. Produced to evoke depressing feelings of the remote and dusty Blackwood manor and to sound-paint the horrific secrets the manor might be hiding. The soundtrack evolves from lonely but still mellow introduction to the house, into darker and more menacing underscores, and as such it represents a story in itself.

High quality disc, replicated. Black print on silver disc; two sided cover artwork in color, with track listing.

Originally released Halloween this year, we have now stocked limited quantities of Nucleosys' soundtrack release Scratches Original Soundtrack. If you are fan of horror games and especially their soundtracks, then make sure to give this one a try. The publisher has been so kind to upload some sound samples to their website. Available now at a bargain of US$ 14.99 only.
