Gun Interactive's third-person asymmetrical horror game The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is, obviously, one of our most anticipated plays of the year. As always, our friends at Waxwork Records have got the perfect killer soundtrack to accompany your gameplay in the form of THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE Original Game Soundtrack LP by BAFTA nominated Cornish composer Ross Tregenza, and REMAINS Additional Game Music LP from THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE by Gun Interactive's CEO and Studio Director Wes Keltner and BAFTA award-winning composer Jim Bonney.

From the official press release:

This very special double album bundle features the complete video game soundtrack music to The Texas Chain Saw Massacre pressed to "Chain Saw Motor Green & Rust" colored vinyl, housed in deluxe heavyweight gatefold packaging with matte satin coating, composer liner notes, and all new artwork. The composers of the game music all have a dedicated love for the original 1974 film. Recordings of sheet metal, spoons, tuning forks, furniture, and the instrument, the Apprehension Engine, were mangled, manipulated, and ran through several vintage reverbs, distortions, tape delays, and other effects to create a haunting, sonic cacophony that envelopes the listener and transports them directly to a killing floor in the sweltering Texas summer heat.

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre The Game Original Soundtrack (try saying that one five times fast) features:

  • The Complete Soundtrack Game Music by Ross Tregenza
  • REMAINS LP: Additional Soundtrack Game Music by Wes Keltner & Jim Bonney
  • "Chain Saw Motor Green" Colored Vinyl (TCSM LP)
  • "Rust" Colored Vinyl (Remains LP)
  • Artwork by Jake Kontou
  • Heavyweight Gatefold Jackets with Matte Coating
  • Composer Liner Notes

Any horror gamer worth their salt has, of course, already pre-ordered The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, but in case you've yet to, let us convince you with this plot synopsis:

“Take on the role of one of the notorious Slaughter family, or their victims, in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, a third-person asymmetrical horror experience based on the groundbreaking and iconic 1974 horror film. Texas. Early 1973. Ana and a group of close friends embark on a journey to the small dusty town of Newt, TX, the last known location of Ana's missing sister, Maria. The group's search quickly turns into a nightmare of unimaginable proportions when they mistakenly invade the home of Leatherface and his cannibalistic family. Tied up, tortured, and left for dead, the group must find the strength to fight back and escape before it's too late. Featuring strategic 3v4 team-based multiplayer gameplay, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre will allow players to truly experience this iconic franchise. The only question is, who will survive and what will be left of them?”
