Fans of shmups with bright colors and a sizable help of Gradius-like gameplay should take a look at the recently released Switch game, Graceful Explosion Machine. (A contradictory title that somehow works well with the content.) You can also now purchase the game’s soundtrack, courtesy of the composer Robby Duguay. (Fate Tectonics, Kim Magikal)

The Graceful Explosion Machine Original Soundtrack features 17 tracks of chiptune music that accompany the colorful chaos of the gameplay. The alien-like, otherworldly synth tunes compliment the intensity of space fighting through the various stages. Each “stage” features four subsections with variations of the stage main melody.

The music reflects Duguay’s previous thoughts on dynamic music in his compositions.

When I was composing the soundtrack for Fate Tectonics, I saw a major opportunity to make the music dynamically follow the player’s progress. I set out to make all the different elements of the game into a member of an ensemble, and let the gameplay dictate how those parts would be heard.

The soundtrack for Graceful Explosion Machine can be purchased in full release later today on Duguay’s Bandcamp, and you can check out the game itself on the Nintendo Switch.
