New musical awesomeness spotted via ‘Dong’s excellent EngRish Games blog: Pause, the “music label and community with a focus on unorthodox forms of 8-bit music yet prone to various other styles,” has started a separate section called +PLUS, dedicated solely to releasing free soundtracks from a variety of indie games.
The five-strong list includes not only ‘Dong’s own soundtrack to his excellent abstract freeware shooter Nanosmiles, but an orchestral album for Studio Eres’ similarly abstract tower defense game Immortal Defense (one of my favorites of the genre), EMH Soft’s Endgame: Singularity, Arue’s Another Bound Neo, and, best of all, Disasterpeace’s short EP for Offworld favorite Rescue: The Beagles.
All are top quality releases well worth a download, as is most of the rest of the Pause catalog, which together should tide you over for a good long while.
