World Of Goo Soundtrack Released. For Free.


World of Goo, Rock Paper Shotgun‘s number one game of last year, and definitely in my top five, has just released it’s soundtrack to the internet-connected world, and it is fantastic.

For an indie game which has only two members working on it, the game has an admittedly astonishing soundtrack which ranges from quick and catchy, all the way to epic and humorous. It’s definitely worth checking out if you’re into music that originates from games but which also sounds good. It is available here.

It is so good, in fact, that it has made it’s way onto my prized iTunes collections, a place that only one other game’s soundtrack has made it, which is Grim Fandango. Which is also worth checking out, as you can get it for free from here.

In fact, those two games are my only two game soundtracks in my music collection. Definitely a soundtrack to look up, and worth listening to even if you haven't played the game. […]
