We’ve known for a while that Mondo would release the soundtrack to the puzzle FPS classic Portal – and now it’s finally here. Or now it’s at least here for everyone as Mondo did already release an exclusive variant for this year’s MondoCon.
The release is a single LP on grey and white split colored vinyl. It is housed in a custom packaging designed by Alan Hynes. The packaging is shaped after the game’s Companion Cube and functions like a magic wallet, that can be opened from both sides.
The album will be priced at $30 and can be ordered from Mondo here.

Also available is Christa Lee’s “Welcome To The Fantasy Zone” album, which isn’t actual video game music, but rather a love letter to Sega game music, so it might be interesting to some of you Sega fans.
Fangamer have announced that they will be releasing Ari Pulkkinen’s soundtrack to Nex Machina and Joonas Turner’s soundtrack to Tormentor X Punisher.
Nex Machina is not much of a surprise as Limited Run Games recently announced their exclusive (and now sold out) variant of the release. But this is the first we’ve heard about Tormentor X Punisher.
The Nex Machina variant will be on red translucent vinyl with black swirl and includes a digital download. Otherwise it will be similar to the Limited Run version.
Tormentor X Punisher will be a single LP on pink marbled vinyl and will be housed in a jacket with new artwork by Jon Vermilyea. It will include a digital download for the soundtrack as well as a code for the game itself.
Nex Machina is priced at $33 and Tormentor X Punisher is priced at $23. Both are scheduled to ship early December 2017.
Nex Machina can be preordered from Fangamer here, and Tormentor X Punisher from Fangamer here.
