Tiny Cartridge 3DS

Don’t forget that we’ll have Hyper Light Drifter to look forward to ⊟

God I can’t wait for this to come out. It’s not releasing for PS Vita and PlayStation 4 until early 2015, but the PC version is expected to hit later this year. And some time around or after then, there will also be a version for Wii U. Whichever platform you end up playing this on (handheld for me), Heart Machine will make sure it looks beautiful while Rich Vreeland a.k.a. “Disasterpeace” will guarantee it sounds great. It would be difficult to watch this trailer and argue otherwise.

Derris Kharlan • West

Disasterpeace and Derris Kharlan released a split single titled West, which contains two tracks that would be at home in the Spaghetti Western-themed retro shoot-out game I keep dreaming about. The other track on this split is by Disasterpeace, whose name you might know from the many, many game soundtracks he’s worked on, including Fez.

"Cave People Live Outdoors!" from the Bonk: Brink of Extinction soundtrack by Disasterpeace. Seven tracks from the cancelled XBLA, PSN, WiiWare, and 3DS game have been posted on Bandcamp and can be freely streamed.

And… it’s pretty good! I didn’t have too much confidence in the game before hearing this, but this music totally evokes Bonk, and makes me really want to play the new game. Perfect timing on my part. :(

Game Boy-style cartridge for Cat Astro Phi, a new and fantastic action-adventure game by PhotonStorm. The entire thing is played inside a Game Boy frame and even features green-tinted graphics, but this is a Flash title you can play for free at Newgrounds.
Once you make it past the annoying shoot’em up controls in the intro, you’re dropped into what PhotonStorm describes as “a mini-Zelda in space.” It’s a charming little game, and there’s even music by  Rich Vreeland of Disasterpeace! You can buy the soundtrack or stream it for free here.

"St. Valentine" by Disasterpeace. Such a wicked break-up track. You can hear the splash of tires running across nearby puddles, and feel the exhaustion in your bones and the cold in your lungs as you walk home in the rain without an umbrella.
