The Chinese Room was one of nine developers to have a score featured in the inaugural BBC Gaming Prom: From 8-Bit to Infinity and Beyond last week.

The studio, which has developed titles including the award-winning Little Orpheus, saw music from its games, Dear Esther and So Let Us Melt, featured at the event conducted by Robert Ames and performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Both titles feature music by BAFTA-award-winning composer Jessica Curry and were joined at the concert by scores from Final Fantasy VIII, Kingdom Hearts and Battlefield 2042.

Curry’s work on The Chinese Room’s Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture was recently praised by Classic FM in its ranking of the top 20 best game scores of all time.

You can watch the performance on BBC iPlayer now.
