Video game composer Rich Douglas releases officially licensed Turok Dinosaur Hunter soundtrack re-recording.
Rich Douglas – whose work can be heard in games including Shadowgate and Lifeless Planet – has released an official re-recording of Darren Mitchell’s much-loved Turok Dinosaur Hunter soundtrack.
The ‘cinematic reimagining’ features seven pieces taken from the memorable 1997 Nintendo 64 game, expanding them beyond what was originally possible with the console’s 64-bit DSP sound chip.
The Turok score is the latest in Douglas’s series of orchestral interpretations of classic late 90s video game soundtracks. His other releases include GoldenEye 007, Perfect Dark, and Metal Gear Solid.
The GoldenEye 007 release, in particular, is a lovely reinvention, and brings back memories of day-long multiplayer sessions spent flying around the Facility and Aztec maps.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
