Wintory created a multi-layered orchestral score featuring the Dallas Winds orchestra plus a trio of YouTube soloists, including vocalists Malukah\u00a0and Peter Hollens, and violinist Taylor Davis. Alex Thomas, a developer on\u00a0The Banner Saga, had assumed the game's soundtrack would be produced in-house, but Wintory's involvement elevated the importance of music in the final product. \u201cWhen Austin got involved, what had begun as a side note changed to an integral part of the storytelling.\u201d said Thomas. "He understands game design, programming and technical implementation, and he makes music that is part of the game instead of sitting on top. There aren\u2019t many writers, designers and composers who are able or willing to work at that capacity.\u201d Last year Wintory was Grammy nominated for his score to the video game\u00a0Journey and also provided the evocative soundtrack to indie crime caper, Monaco: What's Yours is Mine.
