The Spacious Beauty Of The Machinarium Soundtrack

The Spacious Beauty Of The Machinarium Soundtrack


The track above is the first tune to play in the game, and it’s very much the moment when the game “reveals itself” to the player. The rest of the soundtrack steps in and conveys a huge amount of the game’s heart — the charming cartoons and art tell the story of the robots, but the music tells the story of the land, a desolate and yet still beautiful place.

It also reminds me of Bruno Coulais’ music from Coraline, which, well, you could do a hell of a lot worse.

Oh hell, here’s a song from Coraline:



  • This is still one of my favourite game soundtracks to date. By the Wall and the Glasshouse with Butterfly are amazing. Cool game too!

  • Hey I sometimes do the same Crispus!, I’am quite touched by this game… this whole piece of art… you don’t see this quality in videogames very often, I also loved limbo, but I think I still prefer machinarium
