There is a growing recognition of the role of music in games by the gaming industry, game fans, and journalists. Several conferences have been established on the roles of music and sound in video games. Simultaneously, the study of music and audio in games is gaining interest in game studies. Providing a varied series of perspectives on the many directions in which the study of the auditory dimension could bring game studies, as well as games, we aim to offer a glimpse into this “polyphonic” and still vastly underexplored field in game history, suggesting a long-term cooperation and interplay between music and game studies.
