Today Ghost Ramp announced via Twitter that they will be releasing the soundtrack to Vlambeer’s top-down rogue-like Nuclear Throne. The soundtrack is done by Jukio Kallio (also known as Kozilek).
Not much else about the release has been revealed and no indication on a release date, so for now we’ll have to make do with the digital version of the soundtrack which can be streamed via Jukio Kallio’s Bandcamp.
In a Kickstarter update today Super Systems Softworks (the people behind Drift Stage) detailed upcoming merchandise plans in collaboration with Ghost Ramp. And that included a lot of good news for VGM vinyl fans.
It was revealed that the full soundtrack by Myrone will receive a vinyl pressing, it was also revealed that a second car-shaped 7″ with new music and design (the Keizai model), and finally it was revealed that the first car-shaped 7″, which sold out in pre-order, will be re-pressed.
There are no ETA’s on any of these, but the updated noted that the Keizai-shaped 7″ is being pressed right now, so I imagine we will hear more about it soon. The Keizai-release was also previously teased by Ghost Ramp who uploaded the cover art for it (see below).
UPDATE: Somehow I overlooked that Super Systems uploaded a mockup of the record – so feast your eyes on this:
The release on their site is titled “No Man’s Sky: Music For An Infinite Universe” and will be a gatefold 180g 2LP with brand new artwork by Caspar Newbolt (note that the artwork on the listing isn’t the actual artwork which is still being made).
Additionally, a 4LP deluxe box set is also up for pre-order.
The 2LP version will include 65daysofstatic’s full OST while the 4LP set will include the OST + 6 soundscapes from the game. Both versions will include an MP3 download for the full OST + soundscapes.
iam8bit announced today that they will be releasing Michael Bross’ soundtrack to the upcoming Ratchet & Clank game. The album will come on 180g translucent orange vinyl with new cover art by Mark Englert.
So far it’s just been announced that the first release will be Castlevania, which will be available at the San Diego Comic-Con in July. This likely means that a release for the general public will be available online shortly after (which is what they did with their The Last Of Us release).
But this is not today’s only announcement. iam8bit also announced that they will be releasing Petri Alanko’s Quantum Break soundtrack on vinyl. The release will be on 180g white with colored splatter vinyl and will feature new artwork by Christina Mrozik.
The release is limited to 3000 copies and is set for a Q3 2016 release.
Today iam8bit announced that they’re releasing Ben Prunty’s music for the Advanced Edition of FTL: Faster Than Light on vinyl.
The release will come on 180g “cosmic splatter” colored vinyl (similar to their release of the original FTL soundtrack, however with yellow splatter instead of green) and will feature new artwork by Leif Podhajsky on a metallic foil record jacket. The release will also come with a digital download of the music. The release is limited to 1000 copies and is set to release in Q2, 2016.
There’s been some confusion about the tracklist content so just to make it clear – all tracks on this release are different from the ones on the original FTL soundtrack.
