CURATOR'S NOTE

And there's more! This extra 'WORLD 1-2' album has even more great tunes, and goes further down the remix tip, meaning that some of your favorite game soundtracks get seriously messed with by some of your favorite remixers ever - including FTL's Ben Prunty & Mega Man's Manami Matsumae. Double spectacular. – Simon Carless

 

REVIEWS

  • "Masterful collaboration of professional game composers and enthusiast arrangers."

    Tony Ponce, Destructoid
  • "I never would have expected a tune from indie puzzler Super Hexagon to receive such an incredibly epic treatment. Once that rocking introductory riff kicks in, you know your face is going to get rocked off."
