iam8bit releasing a Smash Hit / PinOut double release

iam8bit have just launched a listing for a double release featuring Douglas Holmquist’s soundtracks for the mobile games Smash Hit and PinOut.

The release will be a 2LP on clear vinyl. It comes in a gatefold jacket with new art by Mediocre Games co-founder Henrik Johansson.

Some might recall that Holmquist’s PinOut soundtrack was released as a standalone soundtrack late last year. The tracklist for this new release isn’t up yet so it’s still not clear if it will identical to the older release. This new release will feature an exclusive Chipzel remix, but it’s not been disclosed what game track was remixed.

The release will be priced at $40 and is expected to release Q1 2018. Preorders will open August 3, 2017 at 10AM PT.

You can find the US store page here and the UK/EU store page here.

The album comes on blue opaque vinyl in a regular album jacket with art by the game developer’s designer Henrik Johansson. And as it’s only available on Bandcamp it also comes with an instant download of the digital soundtrack. It is limited to 375 copies.

The vinyl version can be preordered now via Holmquist’s Bandcamp for $15 and is scheduled to release on or around December 12, 2016.
