Slay the Spire, released just weeks before the recording of this interview, is the debut game from developers MegaCrit. Though available in early access since 2017, its full version presents a dynamic deck-building experience with a gorgeous soundtrack to boot. Composed by Clark Aboud, Slay the Spire’s OST is an orchestral adventure of its own, ...…
 
In 2017, Davide Soliani brought two of gaming's most successful franchises together into a truly madcap marriage. Made up of Mario, perhaps the most famous face in the industry, and Ubisoft's Raving Rabbids, who have dominated the party genre for a decade, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is a turn-based love letter to each. As an important relea ...…
 
When Super Meat Boy hit its fifth anniversary, and saw new ports for fresh consoles, the decision was made to give it a musical respray. After Danny Baranowsky, who wrote the game's original OST, and Team Meat had parted ways, RIDICULON became the obvious choice for the job. Along with David "Scattle" Scatliffe and Laura Shigihara, the four com ...…
 
Super Meat Boy caused a platforming storm when it was first released in 2010. Its steep learning curve and devilish level design have made it something of a pilgrimage for fans of the genre. At release, it was Edmund McMillen's biggest game to date — based off a Flash original hosted on Newgrounds. Among its most enduring features was Danny Bar ...…
 
Before today's flood of triple-A console games, way back in the 80s, the Commodore 64 ruled the roost. The most popular home computer in the western world, the C64 became synonymous with homespun programming and the birth of video games as we know them. Then, original soundtracks for video games were forced to use a mere three channels, and wer ...…
 
Left 4 Dead, a zombie infested first-person shooter, went into new territory for Valve in 2008. Hinging on a dynamic AI Director, the game reacts to your skill and movements by procedurally generating enemies, events and several other elements. Importantly, music is a huge part of that unpredictability. Mike Morasky eschewed a traditional score ...…
 
As the N64's third bestselling title, GoldenEye 007 needs no introduction. It's probably the most influential first-person shooter of all time, and still shows up in lists covering the best of its genre. The game's music sails through famous Bond themes and motifs with a cool, electronic edge suited to every step of spy work. A collaborative ef ...…

The results are an aural delight, perfectly marrying the melodic power of revered composers ...…
 
Before Hollywood film adaptations, and more reboots than you can shake a Desert Eagle at, Tomb Raider began life as a trilogy of revolutionary 3D platformers. Its slow, contemplative atmosphere was enhanced at every step by beautiful music from Nathan McCree. In this episode, Nathan discusses the audio for Tomb Raider I, II & III, along with so ...…

With only two games, the Portal series has still managed a gigantic impact on players. Its inventive puzzles are addictive, just like the acerbic jibes of the title's main antagonist, GLaDOS. Behind it all, synth-laden drones and melodic narratives help immerse you into the haunting madhouse of Aperture Science. Its soundtrack was composed prim ...…
 
Donkey Kong Country is home to some of VGM's most iconic and enduring tracks. From its first game to its very latest, Tropical Freeze, music has been as important to the series as the tight platforming it scores. Over the years, a number of top composers have made their mark on DKC — including David Wise, Eveline Novakovic and Grant Kirkhope. A ...…
 
This second part of The Binding of Isaac's musical story moves into its remake, Rebirth. This version of the game received a makeover in practically every area, including music.

Capcom Mix Tape.…
