On April 27, 2016  composer Gareth Coker tweeted that he was going to soon announce something related to Ori and The Blind Forest’s music, I hoped it would be a physical soundtrack release and iam8bit Records posted details of the release on their website. You can read my full review of the soundtrack here if you missed it, and also check out details of the digital release of the soundtrack to Ori and The Blind Forest: The Definitive Edition.

The soundtrack to Ori and the Blind Forest swept the awards circuit this past year, with good reason. This game has it all: A charming story of friendship, breathtaking visuals that feel like living painting, and a score as lovely as it is emotionally moving. So it’s no surprise that composer Gareth Coker’s carefully crafted masterpiece is a sensory treat when emanating from a turntable – soothing, fantastical and, at times, strikingly sentimental.

Coupled with artist Aya Kakeda’s hand-painted jacket art, not only is the cuteness, charm and allure of Ori and the Blind Forest preserved, its mythology expands, tantalizing in its detailed and soulful brushwork. As with all new iam8bit vinyl releases, the audio is mastered specifically for optimal vinyl audio quality. ***Please note that you may experience additional surface noise with glow-in-the-dark vinyl. For the best audio quality, select the blue/purple edition.


The album is available for pre-orders at iam8bit’s website for $35.00 and will start shipping in Q3 2016. Will you be adding this to your vinyl LP collection?
