Today, The VGMbassy is proud to present a brand new type of episode format: the Blind Listen. On these shows, Ed and a guest VGMbassador will listen to the soundtrack from a game that they know absolutely nothing about, and try to figure out what kind of game it could be strictly based on what they hear. At the end of the show, all is revealed as Ed pulls back the shroud covering the game’s details! You, as a listener, can participate in three different ways: by playing along with the hosts and making your own theories, OR by becoming a Patreon Patron and submitting soundtracks for Blind Listen shows, OR by becoming a Patreon guest on a Blind Listen show and playing along with Ed on an episode!
A huge thank you to Indira J (The Misadventures of Buddy and Friend, Sacrimony) for the amazing VGMbassy artwork and design, and to Trevin Hughes (aka chiptune composer Jredd) for the podcast theme song!

I love the idea of “Blind Listen”, but it’s going to be hard to top the insanity of this OST haha. The variety is crazy and yet it still somehow all fit in the end.
Yeah, it was a doozy! I guess we’ll just have to see what the next one is like!
This was a really fun idea. Something with a soundtrack this diverse really feels like it could only be an RPG. I’ll shortly find out if I am correct.
There are 3 more Blind Listen shows (as of this comment) to listen to if you liked this one!
