For Act II, players will meet characters voiced by well-known vocalists such as Mariangela Demurtas (Tristania), Dani Filth (Cradle of Filth), Simone Simons (Epica), Henning Basse (MaYaN) and Daniel de Jongh (Textures), among others.
With music being a prominent feature of the game, the official soundtrack is released along with the game and is included as a digital download with purchase of the game on Steam. For those who purchase the game's Deluxe Edition an Extended version of the album is made available, with access to exclusive bonus tracks.
Karmaflow was initiated by Dutch composer Ivo van Dijk in 2012 and started out as a graduation project for him and 12 fellow students of the School of Arts in Utrecht. The team strives to bring a new and unique way of telling interactive stories through the medium of videogames, and is taking it one step further by bringing the music of Karmaflow to the stage.
