    Games with Awesome Songs?

    I’ve played several games with awesome soundtracks, and I’ve been downloading them when they’re available. I want to share the songs I’ve found as a sort of LD23 Soundtrack, but I need more songs to make a full album!

    So, were there any games that you thought included great songs? Did your game use an awesome soundtrack? If so, let me know and I’ll give the game a play and try to include the song (along with credits to the developer and song writer, of course) in a forthcoming post with a link to download the soundtrack.

    Here are some of my favorite soundtracks:

    Tiny Tim’s World by tacograveyard
    Tiny Tim's World

    Prince of Leaves by evilseanbot

    Hamster Bowling by tfendall

    ACTION SCIENCE DOG by bburbank

    And of course the obligatory link to my game, A Pale Blue Dot, with phat beatz by MC Carl Sagan:

      You should play T in Y World. It’s got a great opening song, and the rest of the music is all right too. Plus, the game is pretty cool, although it’s probably not everyone’s thing. ;)

    2. I just uploaded the music from Tiny’s World to Sound Cloud: http://soundcloud.com/the-four-hats/sets/ludum-dare-23-tinys-world

      All the music used was recorded during LD23 by Chris Negrini. You can check out some of his other work from The Four Hats (our last LD entry) on bandcamp: http://thefourhats.bandcamp.com/

      You should really check with each developer that they permit you to distribute their game music.

      Even if a game is “freeware”, it’s users aren’t necessarily permitted to distribute modifications of the archive. The reason is that any modification potentially changes the user experience, which could in turn be harmful to the IP.

      Even if that’s not explicitly stated in an eula, I think it would still be best to seek permission from each developer. :)

        That’s a good point, and I should have specified that in the post, but I’m only using music from developers that made the songs available as well. But since I didn’t get many replies anyway, it’s a bit of a moot point. Oh well, back to playing the games!
