The lights are on
Nobuo Uematsu, the composer on nearly all of the Final Fantasy titles, has an e-book coming out this summer.
Blik-0 1946 (pronounced 'Buliko') is the story of a robot made by a scientist to live among humans. Blik-0 is created to have the functions of a heart and brain. This means that he is sentient but still struggles with understanding common human emotions that he must experience.
Uematsu also scored a musical companion to the picture e-book which includes three original songs.
Blik-0 1946 will be available for $9.99 on iTunes in August.
Our TakeNobuo Uematsu is celebrated for his emotionally compelling musical scores. Music adds a lot to pivotal cinematic sequences in games. Think how effective it would be if Tidus was looking at the ruins of Zanarkand to complete silence. Kind of awkward, right? Music changes everything. If Uematsu can bring that element of sensitivity to his fiction writing, Blik-0 1946 should be worth a read.
