Okay, does the game come with the OST, is it available for purchase somewhere, can you point me in the direction of the artist's page, etc.

I'm about to buy this game for the trailer music alone. Its gorgeous and the video was cut PERFECTLY to the track.

The artstyle looks intriguing as well. VectorMan meets Super Metroid

Found what I'm after, derp. Whatever, let this thread be a "music appreciation" thread then. Its amazing music, and I'm going to buy the Soundtrack. The game looks great too, I just need to check my finances first.

Dustforce Soundtrack

With Dustforce coming out in less than a week, Iíve got a lot of people asking me about the soundtrack. Iím really happy that people are interested! This is my first project and Iíve really had a lot of fun working and learning. Here is some information about the soundtrack:

When will it be released?

Iíd like to release it as close to the gameís launch as possible, but Iím going to be busy working on the game itself (I do sound effects and level design too). I want to touch up some of the songs and give them endings (instead of loops), and maybe add a bonus track or two. This means itíll probably be out sometime around January 22-25.

How much will it cost?

Iím not sure yet, I have no idea how to do this. I was thinking a pay-what-you-want scheme, maybe with a minimum of $4? Or no minimum? Send me your feedback on this! This is my first time.

Where can I get it?

I will have the album available on my Bandcamp page soon. Right now itís empty, but you can find it at: http://lifeformed.bandcamp.com/

How many songs will be on the album?

Iím still adding tracks to the game as we speak, but Iíd estimate around 18-20 or so. Iíll try to get some bonus tracks in too. each track is 3-5 minutes of original unlooped music.

Bandcamp would be the better place to get it. It will have basically every format for you to decide.

This x1000, though the convenience of having digital content tied to the Steam service is nice.

I'ma bandcamp it myself to be honest.

What software/hardware did you use to create the soundtrack?

Lifeformed

Here's a couple songs to get you started: http://soundcloud.com/lifeformed

I used Ableton with Komplete to make the music.

I see... is Ableton easier to learn than Reaper or Reason? I've been thinking about trying my hand at this. Really good OST by the way.

I found the soundtrack(s) in my steam folder as *.ogg files
Steam\steamapps\common\dustforce\content\audio
I'm still going to buy the tracks because the music is so good

Those are setup for looping, they end in the middle of nowhere.

The released soundtrack will have properly composed track endings.

they're nice to have either way, I prefer a composed ending though. It's a good fix until you release them. :D

Bandcamp better have some fat pipes, because I think they'll be getting hammered for downloads tomorrow :D

Omg, I became a huge fan of you, Lifeformed ! :D You're great in making music. Dustforce OST will be mine, and keep it up, your personal music are good too (especially Practice - Week 6 homework, Dubspot, DAT MUSIC.)

:cool: I will buy the ost for sure ! :D

Aww man, I want to buy the OST, but I'm broke after buying Dustforce for myself and two other people. Curses, why must I have friends?!

Bought!

As I said, I wasn't really sold on the game itself but I'll definitely get the music. I love what I heard in the trailers and gameplay videos I've seen. Thanks for offering it in "FLAC". I'm a fan of lossless formats especially when it's really good music.

What's funny is that I just randomly visited the soundtrack page to see it up only to come here later and find out that it was only released minutes ago. Talk about good timing.
