Casual giant King has money enough to put Candy Crush Soda Saga through a budget large enough to enlist the London Symphony Orchestra. Its soundtrack was recorded by an ensemble of 65 people.
For the recording of the Candy Crush Soda Saga soundtrack, the orchestra sat down at Abbey Road Studios, another sizable landmark. This is the legendary recording studio that shot to fame due to The Beatles.
Since then, Abbey Road has opened up its doors to numerous game projects as well. Recently, blockbuster titles like Titanfall and Destiny took to the location for their sound recordings and now Candy Crush Soda Saga is part of these big names.
Composer Johan Holmström says the new recordings will bring the game a much more organic sound. Previously, the now classic Candy Crush Saga had its soundtrack made digitally.
Members of the London Symphony Orchestra take their professionalism seriously. During sessions, the composer stated that group members would not look at their sheets until the actual recordings, playing by sight instead.
Candy Crush Soda Saga is the continuation of King’s biggest title. It recently launched on Facebook and will soon make it to mobile devices as well.
Despite the new launch, King’s stock trading days are still progressing badly. It’s currently valued between $11 and $12, a fraction of its opening bid earlier this year.
Let’s not feel too bad about King just yet though. In recent revenue earnings, the company was able to out-earn Nintendo with just Candy Crush alone.
