The release will be on a 2LP with one disc on purple and one on gold colored vinyl housed in a gatefold jacket with liner notes from Chris Christodoulou. As an added bonus it comes with both the full digital soundtrack and the “Engineer Edition” of the soundtrack, which contains all the separate audio stems for all the main groups of instruments used in the soundtrack.
For now all they’ve disclosed is that the two soundtracks will be available at PAX West in exclusive editions limited to 500 each (see images below) and that iam8bit will have non-exclusive versions up on their site soon.
The PAX exclusive Psychonauts release will be a single LP on “brain splatter” colored vinyl with artwork by Lunar Saloon.
The PAX exclusive Broken Age release will be a 2LP release in a gatefold jacket with one record on “Vella” pink and “Shay” blue marbled vinyl with artwork by Nathan “Bagel” Stapley.
Both PAX releases will be limited to 500 copies and include both a game download and a download for the digital copy of the soundtrack.
This post will be updated as soon as there are more news available on the non-exclusive variants.
They’ve been teasing “Annoying Dog Day” for a couple of days and now it all makes sense – iam8bit just announced that they are releasing Toby Fox’ acclaimed Undertale soundtrack on vinyl later this year.
The release will feature brand new artwork by Drew Wise (see below) and will be a 2LP in a gatefold jacket. One LP will be on ‘pacifist’ blue while the other is on ‘genocide’ red. As a bonus it also comes with a “Monster Kidz Word Search” insert as well as a download of the full digital soundtrack.
And as an extra bonus – those who preorder the release before September 5, 2016 will receive a limited 7″ on clear vinyl with an “annoying dog” print on the b-side. The 7″ naturally includes the “Annoying Dog Song” from the game.
The album is priced at $35 and is scheduled to release in Q4 2016 and can be preordered now via iam8bit’s US store here and their UK/EU store here.
Last week Data Discs teased that they would be releasing a surprise title that would be ready to ship immediately this week – and today they sent out a newsletter confirming that this release would be the soundtrack for Golden Axe I & II on the same record. The soundtrack to Golden Axe is composed by Tohru Nakabayashi and Golden Axe II is composed by Naofumi Hataya.
As always Data Discs are offering three variants and this time around they will be doing a limited edition variant on transulcent gold vinyl with purple swatches (see image below), a regular translucent gold vinyl version, and a classic black version.
Additionally, the release will come with two lithographic prints featuring game artwork.
The release will be able to order from Data Discs’ website on August 27. As usual subscribers to their newsletter will be given a code to access their site a little earlier than everyone else.
The soundtrack will be a 2LP + a bonus 7″ and contains the remastered Rez soundtrack. The records are held in a custom 48-page book cover with new artwork and design by Cory Schmitz. The book includes interviews with the original development team as well as images from the game and is written by Nick Hurwitch.
The records come in two variants. A colored vinyl set with orange 2LPs (one translucent and one opaque) and a black and grey marbled 7″ for $75 as well as a limited edition picture disc set for $85 (limited to 1000 copies). The release is estimated to ship in Q4, 2016.
Over the past couple of days Black Screen Records have been posting teasers about their third release on Twitter, and today they finally confirmed that they will be releasing Eirik Suhrke’s soundtrack to Downwell on vinyl.
The release comes on 180g red vinyl and includes a 12″ screen print and brand new artwork by Mushbuh. It also includes a digital download for the album.
The game was developed by Dingaling and the soundtrack was composed by Widdly 2 Diddly – both which are aliases for Austin Jorgensen. The release comes in 3 different variants – a special edition with 2LP picture discs that includes an enamel pin and an embroidered character patch, a regular 2LP picture disc version and a 2LP version with one disc on red/black split and the other on blue/black split color vinyl. The packaging for all three versions are identical and features brand new artwork by Karsten Schreurs (see below).
The soundtrack is priced at $50 for the special edition, $40 for the picture disc, and $35 for the colored version. It is scheduled to release on early October, 2016.
Very little detail on this, but it’s confirmed in the music video description to David Earl’s track “Methuselah” on YouTube that the soundtrack to Double Fine’s Headlander will be given a vinyl release:
“‘Methuselah’ from the Headlander soundtrack by David Earl, available now on Steam, coming soon on vinyl!”
No word on what label will release it (or if Double Fine will handle it themselves like they’ve done with Brütal Legend and Dropchord in the past) or when it’s scheduled to come out other than “soon”. I will update this post when more info is out, but in the meantime you can enjoy said music video below:
