Serj Tankian has announced that he has written the full musical score for the upcoming video game Morning Star. Industrial Toys, the studio producing the game, is set to release Morning Star in Spring of 2013, initially for iOS devices.
"I'm really enjoying working on Morning Star because it gives me the ability to create new musical worlds to complement the new visual worlds in the game," explains Tankian. "Though most of the gameplay will be action oriented cues, the stunning artwork and static scenes have inspired unique sounds unheard before."
This is Tankian's second venture into the world of writing music for video games. He previously composed portions of the score for John Woo's critically acclaimed Stranglehold video game, released in 2007 for XBOX 360, Playstation 3 and Windows.
Industrial Toys released a trailer for Morning Star featuring music from Tankian last week that can be viewed at morningstargame.com.
