VVVVVV Composer SoulEye Releases New Gaming-Inspired Album

What’s this? We’re talking about a musical album here on DIYGamer? I know! It’s weird, right? But I think this particular album has a special place in many gamers’ and indie gamers’ collective hearts as this is the same guy who did the wonderful soundtrack for VVVVVV which was widely lauded for its music.

The new album is called Adventure and, if the bulk of it sounds anything like the “trailer” (below) then we’ll be in quite the treat as it sounds just like what we’d all expect. Very game-y and very retro. I’m not sure if it can count as chiptune or not (I’m really not an expert in these things) but I’m certainly enjoying what I’m listening to.

As an added bonus the final two songs from VVVVVV 2.0 are also included in the album as well as a remix of the “Predestined Fate” song that is on the 3DS version of VVVVVV.

All in all you’re getting 20 songs for about $10. Not too shabby. You can also get a physical CD for the same price (plus shipping) which can be signed by SoulEye (Magnus) himself if requested.

P.S. Does anybody else wish that the cover of this album was actually a game? Looks fun!
