Jettomero and its Spacey Downtempo OST out now

Halted by the game’s striking art style, I clicked ‘play’ on the trailer for Jettomero: Hero of the Universe and then immediately went searching for the soundtrack. The game just launched on Steam and Xbox One, and while I’m interested in its procedurally generated universe and hapless hero who’s trying not to destroy everything, I can listen to the music right now.

Jettomero is another one-man production so while Gabriel Koenig (aka Ghost Time Games) was making the game he was also creating the soundtrack. Well, almost at the same time. Koenig outlined his current creative process in a devlog post, “I ended up writing/recording each song in a single session each – usually around 4-5 hours, which I find is one of the only ways that I can work on music these days.”

He cites the likes of Boards of Canada and Phantogram as inspirations and adds that “the overall tone of the album is down-tempo and spacey, a little dark at times but more uplifting in other parts.” Sure enough, it’s been a pleasant ride of crisp beats and even crisper synths, twinkly and pensive, just the way I like my outer space accompaniment these days. It’s a little bit FTL, a little bit PONCHO and I’m really enjoying it so far.

Koenig actually released the soundtrack ahead of the game last November but the final, expanded OST running 90 minutes long across 20 tracks is available now as DLC on Steam or from Bandcamp for $10. Check it out above and definitely take a look at the game in motion while you’re at it.
