Melbourne based electronic composer and Gotye touring musician Tim Shiel, who you might recognise for his work on Duet, will be writing the score to Bryan Gale’s time-bending puzzler, Induction.

Shiel has been releasing innovative and richly detailed electronic music for almost a decade, though he first ventured into game music in 2013 with his award-winning soundtrack to PC and mobile title Duet, which he followed up earlier this year with the score for feature-length documentary, GameLoading: Rise of The Indies.

“I knew my game would need someone whose work would complement Induction’s minimalist style, and who could create music to conductive to deep, abstract thought,” explained Gale, revealing Shiel had been on his radar for some time.

“When Tim first approached me at PAX East, it clicked very quickly that his style would be a perfect fit”.

Induction gives players the ability to jump through time, asking them to exploit its “counter-intuitive consequences” to create strange loops of cause and effect.

You can see the game in action and hear Tim’s score for the first time in the trailer above.
