With the release of the actual game in limbo, the composer behind the survival-horror title releases his work online.
Arkadiusz Reikowski, the composer behind the announced-but-unseen Wii game Sadness, has released his work for the soundtrack online. This furthers speculation that the game will never see the light of day.
The game, announced in 2006, was to be a black and white survival-horror game from Polish developer Nibris. The blog that Reikowski contacted states plainly that the project was abandoned, but no official cancellation from Nibris has ever been released. In February 2008, footage of the game appeared to surface, but was shortly pulled. In February 2010 the game’s website vanished, fueling speculation that the plug was officially pulled at that time.
The released tracks were meant to echo the styles of Silent Hill composer Akira Yamaoki and Siren:Blood Curse composer Hitomi Shimizu, while still containing elements that were unique to Sadness. The music can be downloaded from the Polish blog where the tracks were leaked.
