Yesterday iam8bit announced that they would be releasing the soundtrack to the top-down beat ’em up Ape Out on vinyl. As the game’s soundtrack is dynamically created in-game the release comes from a recording of a live-playthrough of the game by developer Gabe Cuzzillo.
The release will be a single LP on 180g black vinyl. It will be housed in a regular LP jacket with new jazz-inspired artwork by Mark Borgions.
Ghost Ramp have just announced that they will be releasing the soundtrack to Pikuniku on vinyl.
The release will be a single LP on red vinyl. It comes in a regular LP jacket with game art. It will also come with an enamel pin with the game’s main character. The first pressing will be limited to 1000 copies.
Laced Record have announced that they will be releasing a 12″ EP with music from Shadow Warrior 2 on one side and special screen printed art on the b-side.
The music is composed by Stan Bush while the artwork on this release is done by Michał Śledziu Śledziński.
The release will come with a code for the deluxe edition of the game (codes will be sent out when the game releases on October 13, 2016). Additionally, there’s two versions of the release – one on black vinyl and a limited edition on gold vinyl (limited to 500 copies).
I don’t normally do news posts for Kickstarters as there’s some uncertainty related to whether or not they’ll happen – but this is a big one, so I’m making an exception!
Ever since the release of the game, the Hotline Miami soundtrack fans have requested that the soundtrack receives a vinyl release. And the demand and interest only increased after the game’s sequel received a vinyl release last year.
Now it can finally happen! In collaboration with Dennaton Games and Devolver Digital, the label Laced Records have launched a Kickstarter for an official 3LP release of the original Hotline Miami OST + 4 bonus tracks.
The records come on a color each – one black, one red, one yellow – and will come in a triple gatefold cover with brand new artwork by Niklas Akerblad and Protski.
Laced Records is aiming for a £40,000 goal on Kickstarter to make this happen. If it succeeds a first pressing of 5000 copies will be made. Early bird pledges is £30 and when those are out it will be £35. Additional tiers are available for extra Hotline Miami goodies as well.
