Ivor Novello ‘Best Original Video Game Score’ nominees revealed

As Train2Game students will no doubt be aware, in the musical score can be an important factor in determining the feel of a game.  Now three games which are highly regarded for their in-game music have been nominated for Best Original Video Game Score at the 56th Ivor Novello Awards.

The three titles are Enslaved: Odyssey to the West from Ninja Theory, Shogun 2: Total War from The Creative Assembly and James Bond 007: Blood Stone published by Activision.

Blood Stone was also nominated for Best Original Music at last months Video Game BAFTAs, but lost out on the award to Heavy Rain.

Last years Ivor Novello Awards were the first to include an award for Best Original Video Game Score with Killzone 2 taking the prize.

Those interested in the creation of video game music should have a look at this Train2Game blog post which takes an in-depth look at the making of Red Dead Redemption’s musical score.
