Kelly Bailey – Sector Sweep
Kelly Bailey, the composer for the excellent Half-Life soundtrack, has left Valve for reasons unknown. This news made me incredibly sad.
Regarding Episode 3, this news can be taken a few ways. One, the game is nearly complete, with the soundtrack done, and so Bailey didn’t need to still be around. OR, the game is taking so long, Bailey didn’t have anything to do, so he decided to go seek greener pastures. I lean more towards the latter option. See, the problem with the first one is, Bailey has been Valve’s music guy all the way since the first Half-Life. So they’ve finished several games before, and he didn’t leave.
So when Episode 3 finally comes out sometime in the 23rd century, it will most likely be without Kelly Bailey’s signature electronic awesomeness.
Either way Valve, FINISH YOUR BLOODY GAME ALREADY DARN YOU
