I read your books since I’m a little boy, and to know you have any participation in this game that is also part of my childhood is simply amazing! Thank you and please keep sharing that talent with the World!

You made me re-think buying a PS4 hahahaha!

thanks Felipe but you’re confusing me with the other Ian Livingstone – also working in the games industry, I’m just a mere composer!



I LOVE this OST… Just bought it on PS Store, only to find out I can’t download it because I don’t have a PS4… how ridiculous to have your work locked into a system like this. I WANT to give you my money for your work, and I can’t. I shall continue to listen to it on YouTube then :/ Any plans to release it on a proper, open platform later on?

Cheers, keep up the good work!

It’s called Lujon


It couldn’t have been easy to re-imagine the soundtrack for Shadow of the Beast – the Amiga original by David Whittaker still has a hardcore following. But this is truly lovely. I love how you opened the Grass Plains of Karamoon with the old Game Over music! A lovely re-imagining. Your original developments are gorgeous as well, especially the new SOTB theme. Love that cello!


Many thanks Andie that’s great to hear – and yes Tina Guo performed the Cello she is rather good 🙂


Shadow on the Beast was the best Game on my Amiga 500. The Sound and Music was and is the best Music ever.

Greetings from Germany, Berlin

I love to hear the Soundtrack every day. It is perfect !!!!!
Nice Greeting to you Ian. I am a big Fan and i will stay for ever.
You are the best !!!!


thank you!
