Game Soundtracks We Love: Fragile Dreams

Hello to everyone! Thank you for joining us on our cuppa filled gaming journey.

This series of articles shall focus on soundtracks from games that we feel deserve a mention. Some are loved by many, others known by few, but all added another layer of brilliance to a game and have a special place in our hearts 🙂

Each article will include at least two soundtracks and possibly an opening/intro of the game for those that don’t know the game (as long as youtube doesn’t delete them by the time you read this :P).

Game of Choice

To start off this series, I wanted to go with a game that, for me, was one of the more interesting titles on the Wii – Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon.

The game is set in a post-apocalyptic world, with the focus being on the exploration and the story. There is action/combat and even some slightly creepy/weird moments, but that really isn’t what the game is about. Exploring abandoned environments, finding items, discovering memories of the people that once lived there, learning about what happened and meeting interesting characters along the way; really is where the game draws the player in.

Now while saying all that, the game would not be as enjoyable, beautiful, atmospheric and loved by so many; if it wasn’t for the soundtrack.

The above video is the opening cut scene of Fragile Dreams. The opening does brilliantly in setting the feeling and tone of the game; but doesn’t show any in game graphics. The soundtrack I think is beautiful and fits the opening perfectly – I love it!

Fragile Dreams’ main menu has two soundtracks, the video above is of the main one that plays. For me, it’s like being on a journey, with hints of sadness, being alone, but also curious moments with happy revelations and a sense of determination. It is such a nice track that really captures the feeling of the game.

Of course for bosses, games typically have a more dramatic, faster paced tracks playing in the background. The above video contains the soundtrack for a certain boss fight in Fragile Dreams; it’s much more serious, dramatic and intense than the first two I mentioned. It worked brilliantly for the boss battle and added another layer of tension!

I am curious to know:

  • How many of you have played Fragile Dreams?
  • What soundtracks stood out to you?
  • What were your thoughts on the soundtracks mentioned in this article?

Would love to read your thoughts 😀 – Thanks for reading!

  1. I really like the variety of instruments used; especially the Piano. I would like to hear more instrumental pieces used in video game music. Thanks for the post Evriun. 🙂
