The wait is over! Black Screen Records have repressed Jessica Curry's glorious soundtrack on limited edition crystal clear vinyl. This is just in time for the 8th anniversary of The Chinese Room's indie hit and genre defining video game, Dear Esther.

The soundtrack comes on 180g double vinyl, cut at 45RPM for best sound quality, featuring original artwork by BAFTA Breakthrough Brit 2016 Alex Grahame and liner notes by The Chinese Room co-founder and composer Jessica Curry. It also comes with a Bandcamp code for the full digital soundtrack. 

Dear Esther is the award-winning first-person exploration game that paved the way for The Chinese Room's collaboration with Frictional Games on Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs and the BAFTA-winning Everybody's Gone to the Rapture. It’s a ghost story, told using first-person gaming technologies. Rather than traditional gameplay the focus here is on exploration, uncovering the mystery of the island, of who you are and why you are here. Fragments of story are randomly uncovered when exploring the various locations of the island, making every each journey a unique experience. Dear Esther features a stunning, specially commissioned soundtrack from composer Jessica Curry.

Originally released on PC and Mac in 2012, Dear Esther was brought to PlayStation 4 & Xbox One with the Landmark Editionin 2016, which featured a directors' commentary, remastered audio, added accessibility features and trophies / achievements.
