There's A New Game Music Bundle

The Game Music Bundles are packages of joy.
Hot off the heels of our explosive "Crew Post: The Power of Music" I received a most welcome piece of mail in my inbox yesterday morning, a notice that the Game Music Bundle 4 is up and running! Not unlike the Humble (Indie) Bundles that I praised to high heaven last week, this is a package deal where you choose the price (starting as low as $1.00) for five original soundtracks. You may want to note that if you go up to $10 you will unlock the second tier with five additional scores!

For the first time a film's soundtrack is included in the Humble Music Bundle: Indie Game: The Movie (2012)
Included in the bundle are some of the top indie games of 2012: Spelunky (currently my favorite XBLA title to release this year), Dear Esther, and Retro City Rampage (one I am patiently waiting for its XBLA release, it is currently available on PSN and Windows). This bundle also comes with soundtrack for Indie Game: The Movie! This is one of the best documentaries of the year and surely one of the best films about video games I have ever seen. Jim Guthrie, the virtuoso behind the music for Sword & Sworcery, composed the climate-controlling score for Indie Game. Seek this film out folks (currently available on Netflix Instant by the way), but also seek out the music of Jim Guthrie.

If you collect game soundtracks this small purchase is a no-brainer. If you haven't been paying attention to the OSTs of what you play then there is no better time to start. Head over to the Game Music Bundle site and check out the goodness that be. This current bundle looks to end on/around Monday, November 19th, so make sure you tell the gamers in your life!
