Merregnon is a soundtrack CD project for which video game music composers contribute new titles. By writing orchestral music the artists tell a story taking place in a newly created fantasy-universe. Composers like Chris Hülsbeck (Turrican), Yuzo Koshiro (Shenmue), Fabian Del Priore (Cultures 2) and Andy Brick (The Sims 2) joined this international project.
