Freehistoric: Dino Run SE

By Adam Smith on October 7th, 2011.

This dinosaur is running toward the meteor. Bad form, dinosaur. Bad form.

Let’s start off today with something free that could eat up a massive chunk of your Friday, in bite-size portions. You may remember Pixeljam’s Dino Run, it entertained John many a moon ago, back in the days when death by meteors actually seemed more likely than death by economic collapse. Detailing the last days of the dinosaurs in documentary-style pixel graphics, it’s a hectic race for survival, as meteors slam into the ground seeking to obliterate all life. The special edition allows you to customise your dinosaur (hats, dinosaurs in hats) and includes a couple of new modes, one of which allows multiplayer racing (several dinosaurs in hats). As part of the pack, which is only free today and tomorrow, you’ll also receive Space Rubbish and the spiffy soundtrack albums to both.

Overture: Clint Mansell To Score Mass Effect 3

By John Walker on February 10th, 2011.

Nuuuuurrrrrrrrrrr, nurrrrrrrrrrrrrr, nurrrrrrrrrrrrr, dunna, nurrrrrrrrrrrrr, DUNNA DUNNA DUNNA, nurrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. That's my prediction.

Gosh, I do love Clint Mansell’s scores. Especially the soundtrack he put together for Moon. Although you used to have to be careful when listening to it on Spotify, as it would play through into the Fountain’s equally splendid OST, but then into DOOM’s. And you’d realise what you were listening to and feel ridiculous. Anyway, they’ve rejigged all that now, so it’s safe. Oh yes, I had a reason for mentioning this. He’s creating the soundtrack for Mass Effect 3! Which is really, truly splendid news. Most famous for his work on Aronofsky’s films, his orchestrally ambient pieces are capable of subtly finding their way into Trent Reznor territory, and should make a fine background for space action roleplaying. What excellent news. (Via Eurogamer)

Dance, Wrenches: Machinarium Bonus EP

By John Walker on November 23rd, 2009.

Now you can do the wrench dance while walking down the street!

Chances are if you played the wonderful Machinarium, you fell in love with the amazing soundtrack by Tomas Dvorak. If you bought the game directly from Amanita you’ll have got the soundtrack with it. If not, you can buy it from here. But if you did, you might have noticed a couple of favourite tracks from the game weren’t on it. The dancier stuff (apart from the breathtakingly beautiful By The Wall), including the all-important song the robot band plays, and the dubstep the pipe wrench listens to, for instance. Now you can get those five as well, along with EP artwork, for free from Amanita. And if you haven’t played the game at all, good grief, what’s wrong with you? You can get it from here for $20. Check out our review, and indeed those of a dozen others, if you need convincing.

Death March: Dawn Of War II Soundtrack For Free

By Alec Meer on April 30th, 2009.

Well, this is terribly gracious. The complete score for Relic’s divisive RTS sequel can now be had for no pennies. I can’t say it struck me as either wonderful or terrible whilst I played the game, but the track names are certainly spectacular – f’rinstance “There Is Only War“, “They Come In Waves And We Push Them Back” and – oh yes – “Show Me What Passes For Music Among Your Misbegotten Kind“. The world would be a better place if all songs were called that, frankly.

Score Your Day: World Of Goo Soundtrack Released

By John Walker on January 21st, 2009.

Yeah, but can he tapdance?

In good good news news, 2D BOY have released the soundtrack to World of Goo. Anyone who has played the game will know what a fantastic score the game has, and quite how sickeningly talented Kyle Gabler is to have written it all himself. What price would you pay for the lot? Well, it’s free.

The Orange Tunes

By John Walker on December 22nd, 2007.

Valve have recently (yesterday) made available a soundtrack for The Orange Box, available from their online store.

The 19 track CD contains tunes from Episodes One and Two, Team Fortress 2, and of course Portal. That naturally includes Still Alive, but there’s also a bonus version of the song sung by its co-writer Jonathan Coulton.

The question is, don’t we already have those songs on our computer? All the tunes bar one already exist on your machine, albeit in an encoded format. The trouble is, we all know how to get at those songs and have them as playable mp3s.
