Can’t Sleep? Upcoming Videogame Arrangement Wants to Help

Find a comfy pillow, pour yourself a nice glass of red wine (or warm milk if you’re under 21!), and let saxophonist Norihiko Hibino and pianist AYAKI play you a relaxing lullaby.  That’s the idea at least behind Scarlet Moon Records’ new arrangement of soothing videogame tracks: Prescription for Sleep: Game Music Lullabies.

DuckTales: Remastered Soundtrack Releasing Digitally on April 29th

One of the best surprises of last year was not just the actual release of DuckTales: Remastered, a polished remake of the original NES classic, but the amazing soundtrack of remixed and remastered tunes by chiptune mainstay, Jake “virt” Kaufman. The game itself was honestly worth actually buying for the music alone. So much so that fans were begging for a soundtrack release, but unfortunately that choice was in the hands of Disney and not Capcom or developer Wayforward. Now, a digital [...]

PAX East – Fract Hands-On Impressions

Fract isn’t your typical music game. Instead of your usual rhythm based button mashing, Fract puts you inside an abstract world and tasks you with fixing the landscape and restoring the music to the world. The game is based highly on the idea of exploration. Unlike most modern first person games, there is very little hand holding. You’re dropped into the world with only the environment to guide you. Puzzles are at the core of the experience as well. Though visual instructions [...]

PAX East – Cosmic DJ Hands-On Impressions

The last rhythm game I can remember that actually utilized and encouraged the fine art of improvisation was Um Jammer Lammy.  Now, the upcoming iOS game Cosmic DJ can count itself amongst that oddly specific niche. Cosmic DJ is a game about making and remixing music, regardless of how much skill you have coming into it.  The demo I played started by offering me a number of scenarios to help revitalize something called the Jamtenna.  When I asked the sound designer, Katherine Wenske, if [...]

Get The Walking Dead: A House Divided’s Credits Theme For Free

Telltale’s The Walking Dead series is emotionally gripping in every sense; even its music wraps you in melancholy. Now you can spiral into depression wherever you go as Into the Pines (from the credits of A House Divided) is available for free here. I wonder who they’re talking about when they keep saying “little girl.” I mean, way to wrap the song in mystery, amirite?

Recently, they went to Kickstarter to fund their [...]

 

Check Out brentalfloss’ New Lyrical Game Music Album, “Flossophy”

For me, brentalfloss popped up right at the every end of the video game internet celebrity boom, started by trendsetters like the Angry Video Game Nerd.  His signature act of adding competent lyrics to game melodies was truly inspired and of course hilarious, right from the get go. Flash forward about five years later to today, and brentalfloss has just released his third album of “With Lyrics” songs and original pieces in an album titled, Flossophy, which I gotta say is [...]
