I've been a massive fan of point and click adventures all my life and of course one of the biggest of those has always been the games that were made at Lucasarts in the 90s. Behind all those amazing titles were some of the best scores and music ever composed for video games and I had the absolute pleasure of speaking to the man behind that vision Mr Peter McConnell.Peter McConnell has composed award-winning scores for a diverse range of video games including Broken Age, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, the Sly Cooper series, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Psychonauts, Brutal Legend and Grim Fandango. Before working independently, Peter composed in-house at LucasArts contributing to beloved franchises such as Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Monkey Island.
We spoke about his time on all of these amazing projects, from his time studying music theory at Harvard to working now on Psychonauts 2 with Double Fine
