We’ve known that Thomas Happ’s soundtrack for one of last years best-reviewed indie games, Axiom Verge, would be released on vinyl by Ship To Shore PhonoCo. for a while. However, it wasn’t until earlier today that we knew exactly when.
In addition to that we also received a handful of new information such as this release being limited to 1000 copies – 250 on “Axiom Disruptor” red/orange sunburst vinyl and 750 on purple marbled vinyl. The “Axiom Disruptor” variant will be exclusive to Ship To Shore PhonoCo.’s own webstore. Ship To Shore have stated that they will upload pictures of the different variants over the weekend and I’ll be sure to add them to the pictures of the artwork below (UPDATE: They’re up now – check below).
Not only was the game well received, but so was its soundtrack, which received praise from several vgm and electronic music outlets including a #1 spot on FACT Magazine’s list of “The Best 15 Videogame Soundtracks of 2015”. It will be released as a single LP, meaning that it won’t be the full soundtrack (which can be heard here on Bandcamp), but a selection of 11 tracks.
Something that wasn’t news (but still very good) was the fact that Ship To Shore not only will start taking orders on this release on Jan 18, but they’ll start shipping it the same week – no pre-orders!
The product page is already up so you can check out the tracklist, but you cannot place your order until Monday at noon EST.
