VVVVVV Soundtrack: PPPPPPoweredup!

Can you name them all without cheating? I can! Viridian, Violet, Verdigris, uh, Vombles, V-man, Vampire

VVVVVV, last year’s absolutely stellar indie platformer, had some similarly brilliant music. Take a listen to this. Complex, organic, emotive- if that’s not perfection in a pseudo chiptune, I don’t know what is. The artist behind those tracks, Magnus Pålsson (aka Souleye), released them last year in an album called PPPPPP.

What this post is about is that Pålsson’s just released PPPPPPowerup!, an album made up of VVVVVV tracks (and some extras) arranged by eighteen different musicians (including Super Meat Boy composer Danny Baranowsky). “Arranged” is musician for “using real instruments, for instance a guitar or a bassoon or something”. PPPPPPowerup! will set you back $10 (plus shipping if you want a physical copy), and you can listen to a teaser below. All this comes courtesy of the Indiegames blog, who have a fat interview with Souleye here.

2:10 is the bit that made me clutch at my shirt like I was having a heart attack.

Oh, look what I found! The Positive Force arranged version by itself. Amazing.

What do we think, readers? Any takers?
