Review of the early access version, you can hear FSOL doing their things as loops in the background :)

Pre-order is up including a Bundle with the Digital Soundtrack. I will be buying the OST bundle and post the tracklist shortly...

UPDATE: OST seems to be unavailable to download. I'll update this thread with the tracklist as soon as I can download it. Don't want you to all get the soundtrack only to find out it's all From the Archives material we've already heard. Hoping it's some new stuff on there though.

So what's the verdict then?

Is it just partial versions of those old tracks with new names? Or are they noticeably different mixes? Do they all flow together like an FSOL album?

Interesting that it's almost all Environments stuff... for some reason I was expecting it to be mostly Archived. Are they new edits or just faded in / out? Would be quite interested in hearing it regardless.

I haven't compared all of them but River Delta, The Empty Land, and End Of The World are definitely just fade-in / fade-outs. The fades are tasteful enough but definitely not as good as the originals. I assume that the rest are the same as they also fade-in / fade-out. The edits from Environments 1 are quite lovely though since that album could have benefited from being more than two tracks.

I always saw Environments 1 as a homage to Rubycon / Ricochet / Tangram. They have the same kind of structure and even have those Berlin School sequence sections in the middle. Which sections are they, out of curiosity?

Great info! Very cool looking game.

I'd also appreciate it if you could specify which segments from E1 they are :)

$15 (or 12 euros / or 9,5 quid) seems overpriced for 35 minutes of Edits of non-exclusive music...

- and you can't even get it for $15 - you have to get the $35 bundle...

Formaldehyde is from Part 1 - the section at 16min to 21min
Remorseful is also from Part 1 - the section at 5min to 7min

I agree not worth $15. Glad I bought it so you don't have to. The game is lovely though and worth the purchase. :)

Yes, the game is pretty cool as a concept - the creator already said it's inspired by FSOL/Lifeforms/Dead Cities ...

The tracks flow nicely and create that Lifeforms feel, with occasional Dead Cities mementos. They are picked nicely for background gaming.

The un-edited versions of the tracks clock at 66,5 minutes - so that would be better for $15 - and it would still be a little overpriced because of the non-exclusive tracks - I bet FSOL would give them some unreleased gem (or two) if they asked nicely :)

This game could've been BIG, it had/has all the quality angles but the marketing was piss-poor and they did delay it a few dozen times... so... that's that...

Yeah, I'll give this a miss. I don't find much time for gaming and I have a load of games to catch up on already when I ever do find the time.

The FSOL soundtrack is kinda cool just for hearing tracks from different albums in a new play list, but certainly not worth the asking price. I could already kinda do the same by playing those tracks and just setting the player to do a random crossfade between each one... with the exception of the sections of Environments 1.

Anyway, good luck to them all the same - anything FSOL-related gets my nod of approval :)

:D - yeah - that Mushroom logo kinda sucks...

But the overall game design is quite good.
