Huh, this one really snuck right by us. We were huge fans of the first de Blob game and it’s stellar soundtrack composed by John Guscott. With de Blob 2, however, THQ has seemingly released the game as a budget title in the United States without much fanfare. It’s quite a shame, as we would have loved to have done more with the game and it’s soundtrack prior to the game’s release.
The good news is, however, that GameSpot and IGN Australia have been doing their part to keep up with the game, and are each hosting free music from the game for you to download. Over on GameSpot’s videogame music blog, Sound Byte, you can download the game’s soundtrack in it’s entirety for FREE. They’re in .wav format, so be prepared for a lengthy download. Click here to check that out. Over on IGN Australia, there’s a special live set medley recording performed by John Guscott and some session players at a de Blob 2 launch event which you can grab here.
Pretty cool all around. I liked the physical disc that was released with the first game as a purchase bonus from certain retailers, but you can’t beat free, I suppose. Get over there, download the music, and let us know what you think!
