The Arcana (game) Wiki

The Arcana: A Mystic Romance is a luxurious interactive visual story that, in part, owes its success to an excellent soundtrack which creates atmosphere of magic and mystery.

The main body of the soundtrack was composed by Kevin Macleod, an American composer and musician. MacLeod has composed over 2,000 pieces of royalty-free library music and made them available under a Creative Commons copyright license. His licensing options allow anyone to use his music for free as long as he receives credit, which has led to his music being used in thousands of films and commercial video games such as The Arcana.

The Water Sleep Audio Group, a record company, who brought the magical menu theme of the Arcana app to life, deserves an honourable mention as well as Keith Holden, Neil Cross, Chad Farran and even Frederic Chopin.

Ending Soundtrack

The soundtrack used in the ending chapters differs vastly from the soundtrack used in the rest of the game. To create an unnerving to downright scary atmosphere of the looming end the developers recorded the existing tracks backwards and chose the most menacing and epic compositions out of Kevin MacLeod's library.
