Joris de Man, Killzone Composer, Working on FuturLab’s Next Game

FuturLab, the rather marvellous team behind the hugely addictive Coconut Dodge, have announced that their next, as-of-yet untitled project will have its score composed by Ivor Novello winner Joris de Man, the award winning composer behind Killzone 2 and 3 and the indie hit N+.

Their next project, a space adventure PlayStation Mini which promises innovative gameplay, is due in March 2012, and given the cold turkey I had getting off Coconut Dodge, it can't come a moment too soon.

From the press release:

From James Marsden, FuturLab's Managing Director:
“The team has developed some very innovative mechanics on this game, so we wanted to give it a big sound to complement the gameplay experience. We’ve been great fans of Joris’ work, both on the Killzone series and for the indie game N+, so we’re very excited that he’s onboard, and able to use his expertise to help realise our vision.”

Joris de Man added:

“It’s always exciting to be involved with indie projects; there’s an energy that comes from working with teams like FuturLab that’s contagious and fuels my ideas because they take risks where some can’t.

I really love the game mechanics that are being employed in the game; they bring a cool twist on a classic genre, something I love to do with music and its production. It’s going to be fun to delve into my Atari roots to bring an old skool flavor to the sound of this mini.”
