Late yesterday Limited Run Games announced that they will be selling vinyl soundtracks for the two Mike Bithell games Volume and Thomas Was Alone. Both are composed by David Housden.
Volume will be a single black 180g LP housed in a single pocket jacket with game art. The vinyl release for this is handled by Laced Records.
Thomas Was Alone will be a single blue translucent 180g LP housed in a single pocket jacket with layout handled by Dane Baudoin. The vinyl release for this is handled by Black Screen Records. It is identical to the vinyl release from last year except for the record being on blue instead of red or black.
Both titles are limited to 500 copies (although some sources have said that Volume is actually 800 copies). They will both go on sale on May 4, 2018 at 10AM EST.
Volume will be priced at $30 and will be available from Limited Run Games here.
Thomas Was Alone will be priced at $28 and will be available from Limited Run Games here.
Limited Run Games have announced that they will be releasing Ari Pulkkinen’s soundtrack to the game Nex Machina on vinyl. The release will be produced by Fangamer, but it’s unclear whether they will also act as a label for this release.
The release will be a 2LP on clear vinyl with red and black splatter. It’s housed in a gatefold jacket with game art. It is limited to 500 copies.
As of now there haven’t been any mention of other variants of this soundtrack being released elsewhere, but the store page description hints at this.
It will be priced at $35. Orders will open tomorrow (November 10, 2017) via the Limited Run Games store. The first batch of copies will go up for sale at 10AM Eastern and another batch will go up at 6PM Easter.
EDIT: The store page was updated with the text “Album is still in production and the art may change slightly” after this post was written indicating that this is a preorder and will not release on November 10. I’ll try to update with an ETA for release once it’s announced.
Today Black Screen Records announced preorders for the vinyl release of Michael Bross’ Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath soundtrack.
The release will be a 2LP plus a bonus 7″ and comes in three different variants – a classic black vinyl version, a version with one record on yellow and one on orange colored vinyl, and a Limited Run Games variant with alternate cover art and on blue vinyl. The 7″ is on black vinyl for all three variants.
The yellow/orange variant will be part of Black Screen Records’ previously announced Mystery Bundle #002, so people who have already ordered the bundle should be guaranteed a copy.
The release is priced at €32 and can be preordered from Black Screen Records’ store here. It is expected to release later this Summer.
The Limited Run Games variant will be available on July 7, 2017 from the Limited Run Games website.
It was announced a while back, but now it’s finally here. Ship To Shore PhonoCo. is releasing a 7″ with the game’s theme song and two tracks from the original score. The music is by Sunny BlueSkyes and Martin Lund.
The release is made to celebrate the game’s 25th anniversary and will be available in two color variants – purple and red.
The purple vinyl can be ordered from Ship To Shore PhonoCo.’s webstore here.
The red vinyl will be available from Limited Run Games at a later date.
Limited Run Games teased a possible vinyl release for the Saturday Morning RPG soundtrack earlier this year and in late August they properly announced it with a picture of a box of records.
Now they’ve revealed that they will be releasing the soundtrack this Friday (September 16). Additionally, since we know they have the records on hand it seems fair to assume that these will be ready to ship and not up for preorder.
The soundtrack, which is composed by Vince DiCola and Kenny Meriedeth, will be released on blue vinyl (see below).
The soundtrack will be sold exclusively through Limited Run Games’ website. This post will be updated with a store link once it’s up.
UPDATE: Well, the soundtrack sold out so fast that I did not manage to create a link to it in time. For those curious you can still find the store link here.
Also, in addition to what we already knew it appears that the release is limited to 450 hand-numbered copies.
