The Telltale's Stranger Things soundtrack has been released by its composers following allegations that they was not paid for their work by the defunct game developer.
Telltale Games was known for making story-driven adventure games based on popular media franchises such as The Walking Dead and Batman. Unfortunately, the company closed back in 2018, leaving many game developers without a job — and in one case, an allegation of failing to pay these composers.
Now, the Telltale's Stranger Things soundtrack composers Antimo & Welles have released it for free on YouTube along with the option to get individual tracks on their Patreon.
Telltale's Stranger Things Soundtrack Release is 'The Best Bits' of an Unfinished Project
According to Antimo & Welles, they've been "sitting on this for a while." They had hoped to use it for something, but nothing really came to fruition. As a result, they've released a partially-finished Telltale's Stranger Things soundtrack for free on YouTube.
"This is just a handful of what we wrote for this game," read a Patreon post from the composers published on ResetEra. "It's 'unfinished' audio. Not all of it screams Stranger Things. We acquired a lot of gear we'd never used before - much of this is us just working it out together. It's all mostly as it was when we wrote it, though I've spent considerable time the past month going through it all, picking the best bits and cleaning them up."
Unfortunately, this is just a portion of the soundtrack for a game that we ultimately never got to play. It's unlikely that Antimo & Welles will ever finish it, especially as they've since moved on to other projects. If you'd like to download individual tracks, you can get them by joining the Antimo & Welles Patreon.
