Dark Scavenger soundtrack released

Kyle Perry of Psydra Games writes in to announce the release of the Dark Scavenger original soundtrack:

Featuring music from Harmonix’s Joe Kelly and alumni Alex Gold, the Dark Scavenger soundtrack boasts over 15 original songs, including an exclusive bonus medley!

Dark Scavenger, for those of you who missed our original coverage of the game, is a profoundly (and delightfully) bizarre sci-fi RPG / adventure game mash-up.

Truth be told, I recall little about the game’s music except that much of it was ludicrously upbeat. I’m pretty sure I enjoyed the boss battle theme; I seem to remember that one being pretty solid. I also recall being mildly annoyed by the regular battle theme–it combined sparse instrumentation and MIDI-ish string samples in a fashion that inflamed the Music Critic portion of my brain in a most disagreeable way.

In short, I suspect that this one will be a mixed bag, with both worthwhile tracks and at least one song that will not be making it onto the playlist. Frankly, I’ll have to properly listen to the thing and refresh my recollection before I can make a recommendation one way or the other. Luckily, you don’t have to wait for me to do that: Bandcamp allows you to listen to the album and decide for yourself whether you like it before you buy!

The OST is available for $2.99 both direct from the developer and via Bandcamp. (Bandcamp offers a pretty generous revenue split, but I suspect that Psydra Games will see more of the money if you buy direct from them.)

Oh, one last thing: the devs were generous enough to provide a free copy of the soundtrack to give out to one of our lucky readers. Watch Twitter; I’ll be giving it away in a few hours!
