We’re doing things a little bit differently this time around: Ed purchased a bundle of ten random Steam indie game keys from a popular website with the intent of featuring the music from all of the games on a podcast episode. What he found was a collection of brilliant and engaging pieces of music by both veteran and up-and-coming composers! Learn a bit about the gameplay and soundtracks from some overlooked gems in the indie scene, and please visit the composers’ web pages while you’re at it!
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!
