Ken Levine, creative director of the upcoming game, told reporters here on Thursday that he was pushing back its release date by one month, to March 26, for extra bug-fixing and polish. Wired then played the first six hours of Infinite to see firsthand what the team is lavishing such extensive care on. With Columbia we see another such city, but this one in its prime, not yet having destroyed itself. It is a hundred times more detailed and extravagant than Rapture, and players who explore every nook and cranny will find all kinds of messages, supporting story elements and thought-provoking details buried by Levine and his writing team. BioShock made great use of period music to set a particular mood, and some of the songs were clearly chosen for their lyrics, which mirrored elements of the story's plot. For BioShock Infinite, this is taken to the extreme. Dozens of popular songs are scattered liberally throughout the game, whether played on gramophones and radios or sung by characters.

The video game "BioShock Infinite" came out in March and has already been pegged as a strong contender for game of the year. The first-person shooter explores early 20th-century America in all of its glory and horror, and it owes a big part of its success to its varied and creative soundtrack. While many of the songs in " BioShock Infinite " sound like they're straight out of , they have distinctly modern origins. Jessy Carolina, a Brooklyn-based folk singer, worked with audio engineers at development studio Irrational Games to give her finely honed voice a distinctive Taft administration bent. Before you go any further, though, take a listen to her take on the old standard "After You've Gone," a favorite among singers like Nina Simone and Ella Fitzgerald:. Even though the song would not sound out of place on a scratchy old phonograph, Carolina recorded "After You've Gone" in — 95 years after its debut, and years after it appears in the game's floating city of Columbia don't worry: the anachronism is part of the meticulously crafted plot. In addition to Carolina's old-timey tunes, the "BioShock Infinite" soundtrack contains a number of sweeping orchestral pieces, blaring steam organ songs and even a barbershop rendition of "God Only Knows" from the Beach Boys. Protagonist Booker DeWitt, a veteran of the Sioux civilian massacre at Wounded Knee in , encounters many of these songs via radio and phonograph, giving them a period-specific tinny feel. In fact, at Irrational Games, sound designers used computers to make Carolina sound less polished, not more. Early phonograph recordings could not record or broadcast stereo sound, and had trouble with sound wavelengths below 1, Hertz Hz midrange treble or above 10, Hz high treble.
