If you’re not familiar with Sadness, let’s do a short recap. When Nintendo announced their next console, then titled Revolution, a small Polish company named Nibris announced they were working on a new psychological horror game named Sadness. Nibris, who described themselves as being situated in the city of Krakow where East meets West (which sounds like a slogan for an anime convention where fat people cosplay), announced that Sadness would take place in Eastern Europe and be completely in black and white. This helped it gain some attention, and as Revolution turned into Wii, Nibris even released a live action teaser, showing no gameplay whatsoever. From here it all went downhill.

If the rest of that story interests you, N-Europe interviewed a staff member who revealed that all they did over the course of 4 years was create a 3D mining cart. And now another employee has come forth and voiced his frustration, this time the sound composer. His name is Arkadiusz Reikowski and he notes that that all these songs are works in progress, but his intention was to blend the styles of Akira Yamaoka and Hitomi Shimizu while keeping his own style. Apparently he also recorded some voice work, but the project went nowhere and therefore he decided to release the music.

The tracks can be downloaded here. At least the music isn’t as fake as the game turned out to be.
