Video Game Music of the Week - 251

Alien Trilogy (PlayStation, Sega Saturn, MS-DOS)


Main Theme, Within Mankind, Corridor Pulse

Stephen Root

Alien Trilogy released on PlayStation, Sega Saturn and MS-DOS in 1996. The game plot is loosely based on the first three Alien films, taking certain elements and plot points from them.

Main Theme
Alien Trilogy features a very creepy soundtrack, as you would expect. There are a lot of atmospheric elements to the music, which are especially notable in the Main Theme.

Within Mankind
This track features numerous different sound effects, such as thunderstorms and otherworldly creature sounds. There is a slow and meticulous theme that plays in the track, and combined with the various other sounds, the song becomes a very chilling background theme.

Corridor Pulse
As with the other songs found in the game, this track also maintains a slow pace, with echoing and distorted percussions. The melodies themselves found in the games music take a backseat to the overall theming, musical tweeks and various distortions found within the tracks.

Written by - Michael Villalon for ‘The VG Island’.
