PSVR exclusive Golem is out today at North American retail, having released last week digitally and in Europe. To celebrate its release, we’ve partnered with Highwire Games and Perp Games to give away an amazing package to one lucky winner, with a series of great consolation prizes for a few other people. We’ve got a signed copy of the Golem vinyl soundtrack along with a copy of the physical game, and five codes for the digital version of the soundtrack.
The Golem soundtrack includes 12 tracks composed by former Bungie composer Martin O’Donnell. Titled Echoes of the Dreamer (The Musical Prequel to Golem), its music sets the stage for the game through a soundscape. The soundtrack is based around the themes of a lullaby that O’Donnell wrote after his first daughter was born.
The story of Golem: children who’ve lost their mother; a grieving father trying his hardest to keep his family safe; a mysterious city filled with monsters and adventure. I wanted the music to evoke emotions of excitement, sadness, mystery, and the wonder of childhood.
Jaime Griesemer, Highwire Games Creative Director, asked me to compose not just the score for the game but an entire musical prequel. This means that the music needs to stand alone and take the listener on an emotional journey, without the support of the visuals or memories of gameplay.
You can view the full tracklist below:
1. Dreamer’s Lullaby (Piano) 2:55
2. Kindled Echoes 5:15
3. Standing Alone 2:32
4. Lament in the Endless City (Orchestra) 5:35
5. Vision of a Lasting Flame (Piano) 3:26
6. Silent Tide 4:56
7. Lament in the Endless City (Piano) 5:34
8. Dreamer’s Lullaby (Orchestra) 3:11
9. Vision of a Lasting Flame (Piano and Orchestra) 4:50

11. Path of the Golem 1:19
12. Fanfare 1:05
