I'm so proud to have played a part in bringing this important story to life and highlighting the fantastic work of Dallaglio RugbyWorks.'s rail simulation and management game Rail Route which features my original classical soundtrack has just had its full 1.0 release date announced: you will be able to play the complete game on 22nd February! I'm also very excited to share that the brilliant Black Screen Records will release my 10-track soundtrack album on the 22nd, available on Spotify, Apple Music, Bandcamp and all other major platforms. You can pre-save and pre-order the album now to catch it as soon as it releases as well as listen to "Promise Burn Anew" over on Bandcamp for a flavour of the score.

There is also a special launch livestream even hosted by the game's lead developer on 22nd February which will be a celebration of the game you won't want to miss! Make sure to catch that over on the Rail Route Steam page.

I'm very excited to share my first ever press interview! I spoke to the brilliant team at Uncrank'd, the fan magazine for Playdate, about working with OrangeThief on the music and sound for Resonant Tale, the creative approach and challenges we faced pushing the Pulp engine to its limits. You can buy a digital copy of the magazine for $3.99 or pre-order physical editions for $16.99 over on the storenvy.

There has been some additional exciting news this week, with announcements of nominations for the Playdate Community Awards '23. Although there have only been a couple of categories' contenders shared so far, Resonant Tale has snagged nominations in both, for Best Soundtrack and Best Sound Design. It's an honour to be recognised for Resonant Tale and among such talented musicians and sound designers! Keep your eyes peeled for (hopefully) further nominations and awards announcements.
