iam8bit have released the soundtrack to 198X on vinyl.
The release is a 2LP with one record on “retro” pink translucent and the other on classic black vinyl. It comes in a gatefold jacket with new artwork by Waneella. It is limited to 500 copies.
The album was announced as part of the game’s Kickstarter on May 3, 2018, which was funded succesfully on June 2, 2018. A later vinyl edition was also announced as part of the Kickstarter.
The album was initially intended to release alongside the game in May, 2019, but the full game was delayed. In February, 2020 it was announced that the two vinyl editions were getting combined into this one and would be released by iam8bit. It began shipping to backers later in February, 2020 and was made available for purchase at PAX East 2020, and available online on March 5, 2020.
