Bethesda have released ominous sea shanty The Drunken Whaler as a free MP3 download. The music accompanied Dishonored’s award-winning trailer, which you can see below. They’ve also just launched the official Drunken Whaler remix contest, inviting you to download the song’s stems to create your own original composition. I’ve given it a shot. Let me know what you think.
Here’s the original.
And my remix, if you’re interested.
If you think you can do better, the stems, contest rulesand entry form can allbe found on the Dishonored Remix Contest site. Winners will have their remixesposted on the Dishonored website, as well as receiving lots of free merch, t-shirts, posters and a copy of the game. And if you’re in need of inspiration, the track’s original creators discuss the conception of the haunting tune over on the COPILOT site.
Dishonored launches on PC onOctober 12.
