Bioshock Infinite’s secret hidden music will blow your mind

44 second read


I’m not sure if you’ve noticed while playing through Bioshock Infinite, but throughout the entire game, the audio is punctuated with these low, deep groans that almost sounds like Rapture’s Big Daddies. It turns out that there’s much, much more to it than meets the eye, or ear, as it happens.

Both Gamesradar and Polygon’s Arthur Gies noticed something funny when they played heir gameplay videos back at a higher speed – and it seems there’s a wealth of music hidden in BioShock Infinite.

Check it out. Neither video contains much in the way of spoilers.

That’s pretty mindblowing stuff – and it has to make you wonder just how prevalent this is, and what else could be lurking beneath the surface of Bioshock Infinite.

    I’m pretty sure that’s why I’m so on edge when I play this game. Probably find out it’s some Indian incantation that makes your insides shake or your balls shrink.

    Only cool if its Queen telling you to smoke weed or Chicago commands to worship the dark lord and spill the blood of the innocent.

    they should sold “airtime” in the game to other developers and publishers.

    “A friend who plays CoD is a friend indeed.”

    Yootoob comment: “They just used a song played at low speed to create ambiance background noise they easily could modify in times that change to battle music or whatever. The way there isn’t a music track just fading in from nowhere. It’s subtle and without research like this you’d never know it was there. But that’s? what makes it work so well.”

    It’s being played slow then reversed. I can recognize it because I use to reverse my own voice and try to talk backwards. I had a lot of time on my hands.
