STREAM ON SPOTIFY:
Röki is an adventure game inspired by Scandinavian folklore; a dark contemporary fairy tale, underpinned by a deep narrative, satisfying puzzles and daring exploration. We join Tove on a fantastical journey to save her family. A journey that takes her deep into a hidden and long forgotten world of lost folklore, filled with strange locations and even stranger characters.

Alex & Tom (Polygon Treehouse):
"We knew from the conception of Röki that music would play a huge part in our world-building and storytelling. After initially revealing the game we received a great deal of interest from composers but took our time in picking our musical collaborator. We knew if we got the right fit it would elevate the player’s time in the Scandinavian wilderness and adventure with Tove immeasurably.
With Aether we got all that we hoped and more. His modern, relaxing and haunting work has become a signature of the game and has already drawn many plaudits, even before the game’s launch.
When we were contacted by Black Screen Records team we jumped at the chance to work with them to celebrate Aether’s work and allow Röki’s soundscape to be enjoyed on a whole different level.
Turn the volume up and step into the wilderness."
Jason Taylor (Aether):
"I’m fortunate enough to have exposure to so many beautiful indie games, but once I saw the art style and setting of Röki, I just had to get in touch with the team. I was in the early stages of my ambient exploration when I reached out and I feel like that played heavily in my favour!
This is the first score I’ve written that has a narrative purpose which was initially very daunting, but upon learning more about the project and the world Polygon Treehouse were building, I feel like everything just fell into place. Tom and Alex were very open to various ideas and the overall writing process was a lot of fun!
When BSR appeared on our radar, their proposal was such an appealing one and their presentation and vision for the vinyl record was so lovely. I’m incredibly excited to see how the final package looks, the whole team have crafted something wonderful here."
