Steam Music Player Out Of Beta, Valve’s Soundtracks Free

By Graham Smith on September 25th, 2014.

In almost every strategy, management or sim game I play, I will immediately turn off the music which comes with the game in favour of my own. That means that Steam Music Player sounds like a good idea to me even if I long ago abandoned mp3s in favour of streaming. The built-in functionality, which lets you browse your music library and control playback from in-game using the Steam overlay, has just left beta after its initial announcement back in February.

To celebrate, Valve have made the soundtracks for some of their games freely available to those who own the associated games, including Half-Life, Half-Life 2 and its Episodes, Portal, Portal 2, and the Dota 2 documentary Free to Play.

Earworm: Game Music Bundle 7 Offers 5 Soundtracks For $1

By Graham Smith on May 1st, 2014.

A side benefit to videogame bundles: they offer the opportunity to write about games that would otherwise go unmentioned on a PC-only site. Take Game Music Bundle 7, for example. For $1, it gives you the soundtracks to The Banner Saga, Broken Age, Luftrausers, The Floor Is Jelly and Device 6. Which is four PC games and therefore ample excuse to mention that the mobile-only Device 6 is a puzzle game with some of my favourite videogame music ever. I mean, listen to this.

Or maybe you don’t care about the advantages the bundle offers me, the lowly internet writer, and instead want to know that if you pay a further $9 (for a total of $10, fact fans), you’ll also net the soundtracks to The Yawhg, Starbound, Escape Goat 2, Eldritch, Tribes: Ascend, Ether and my fingers are getting tired so I’ll just say nine others for a total of 20.

Game Music Bundle 6 Offers 24 Albums For $10

By Graham Smith on December 2nd, 2013.

This art is by Dominik Johann, whose work is rad.

Every day there’s a bundle of bundles, and so it takes something special to be impressive. Game Music Bundle 6 is something special. For $1.00 you get the sountracks to Dust: An Elysian Tail, Braid, Rogue Legacy, Eletronic Super Joy and Famaze.

For just $10, you also get the soundtracks to Kentucky Route Zero, Guacamelee, Risk of Rain, Thirty Flights of Loving, 7 Grand Steps, Artemis, The Stanley Parable, Zineth, Papa & Yo and more. It’s a total of 24 albums for the price of two Stereophonics singles I bought in Our Price in 1997.

Eary Indie An’ Ya: Game Music Bundle 2 Live

By Craig Pearson on February 9th, 2012.

A musical based screenshot. I'm so happy this exists!
For those of you that skip to the last paragraph of The Sunday Papers for a music recommendation, this whole post is nothing but a route into the aural delights of game music. The music this time isn’t Jim’s brand of 2001’s Monolith’s sneezes, nor is it my mashup nonsense. Nope, it’s the Indie Game Music Bundle 2‘s collection of soundtracks gathered together in another pay what you want bundle. For as little as a dollar, you could get some gorgeous music.

OST(erity) Cuts: Indie Music Bundle

By Adam Smith on November 25th, 2011.

My girlfriend just asked: "Is that the logo? It's weird." I told her it was a box with music exploding out of it and she said: "Oh. So it's not weird then?" Satisfied.

Here’s an indie bundle with a difference – it doesn’t contain any games. Instead, the Indie Music Bundle it’s a collection of soundtracks from some of your favourite (assumption #1) indie games and some you have probably never heard of (assumption #2). As is swiftly becoming obligatory, the ten albums are available at a price of your choosing, although this is for one day only, being a Black Friday sale. The minimum price is $1 and if you pay at least $10 you’ll receive seven bonus items.

Of the ones that I know, the VVVVVV soundtrack is simply wonderful, and both Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac, are quite enjoyable. The latter is in the $10 bonus items. Even if you opt to be stingy, for a dollar you’re sure to find something that you love (assumption #3). Everything is DRM-free and delivered as 320kbps MP3s. Take a look.
