NyxQuest OST

Wanna play a game? Well if you want to get this free album I tracked down, you’ll have to.

That’s right, the site hosting the NyxQuest OST makes you take a quiz on Ancient Greek Mythology and get all 3 questions right in order to get the album. Are you up to the challenge? Game FAQs on stand by? Are you ready? Then go… on ahead and read my short review of the soundtrack first. :D

8bit Killer OST

Sorry about the lack of updates but I was waiting until Monday to start posting new music on schedule. So since it’s Monday, here we go.

I was plodding through a few indie games when I came across this soundtrack. It’s the soundtrack from the 8bit Killer game. It’s full of chiptuney goodness reminisce of the NES of the past such as Megaman and Castlevania. If you like the soundtracks of those NES series, then chances are you’ll like 8bit Killer’s soundtrack.

Nanosmiles OST

I’ve been listening to this soundtrack recently. It’s for the Nanosmiles game, and I got to say it’s pretty awesome. Not too often do I get soundtracks that I want to listen to repeatedly but I keep reaching for this one on my play list. Telling from TIGSource referred it to me (thanks Telling :D ) and now I’m going to refer it you now.

The album consists mostly of quasi-chiptunes in a techno or dance format

Let’s go through this soundtrack, track by track.

Haiku Hero song, I will play it for you now. Totally awesome!

 

Sorry about the lack of updates lately, I’ve been working on some posts that honestly have been taking more than a day to put together. I’ll have some music to post this weekend too.

Until then I will leave you with a song to relieve your agitations and stress. It is Sketch, the main song from the Haiku Hero game made by Montoli. The song was made by Kristin Miltner. Please enjoy.

Jables’s Adventure OST

Jables’s Adventure just came out recently, it’s a short humourous  platformer where the hero is a kid with a squid on his head (but it looks more like an octopus to me…) and it’s his job to go on a adventure to slap kid’s hands, bother mermaids and shoot bears, sometimes under water! But guess what else just happen to come out a few days after the game. That’s right, the full game soundtrack. :D

September 6th-12th in Review

Here we go with the review of the music posted this week at TIGMN. This week we had a mix of old and new music, new being the Melolune Preview OST and The Best Music. The old (but still awesome) being Colossus Cube and the VVVVVV OST. Laura Shigihara opened her bandcamp store and VVVVVV got released on steam. All in all it’s been a good week. :D

Don’t forget to sign up to the RSS feed or Twitter to get timely updates of awesome indie game music. :D

Sep 6th - Laura Shigihara’s Music Store, Now Open! – Melolune OST Preview Album Released

VVVVVV OST

Postive Force - PPPPPP

VVVVVV, a very awesome indie puzzle platformer came out on steam on Sept 7th. Like most things, I’m late to the party and just playing this game for the first time. One thing I did notice was the kick ass chip tune soundtrack that it had, so I decided to review the VVVVVV OST album which is called PPPPPP by Souleye.

The Best Music – George Michael Brower and Jonathan Baken

George Michael Brower and Jonathan Baken have released a chiptune album made entirely in Pixel’s PxTone. Best of all it’s free. :D

According to the makers of this album, it took 5 years to make this album. The album is a very groove-laced funky one,  and has high production values in it. You can tell they put a lot of hard work into this album. I think this album is not really my cup of tea, but I can see a lot of people liking this album that have different tastes than my own. Most of the songs I feel would fit right into a classic Sonic the Hedgehog game or any game that needed a solid groove.

Cube Colossus OST By Fandrey

I stumbled across Fandrey on the TIGSource forums and decided to check out an album of his after hearing one of his songs he shared with us. Well he has a free OST for the game Cube Colossus on his website Atelier Lucid that I will be sharing with everyone today. I’m quite impressed with his music, it is pretty catchy and I find myself replaying the album when I’m not sure what I want to listen to at the moment.
