Ladies, Gentleman and all those in-between. Today, for you, our favorite people ever*, we have some gifts. For the first time ever, for the specific reason that it’s nearly [big family holiday of your choosing] and because we’re releasing Oddboxx this week, we wanted to give you guys something truly special.
On this most wonderful of days, we are giving you an exclusive, a never-before-released, ten-track Oddboxx Soundtrack Sampler. Why is this special? Well, Abe’s Oddysee and Stranger’s Wrath only ever saw official soundtracks. However, the Abe’s Oddysee OST, localized as ‘Abe A-Go Go‘, was only ever released in Japan. Stranger’s Wrath was released, but only in limited release quantities, and online.
Additionally, Munch’s Oddysee was never scored with an OST release in mind. It was scored as a dynamic soundtrack, which was more appropriate for the game’s atmospheric goals at the time. Thankfully Michael Bross, the composer of Munch’s Oddysee and Stranger’s Wrath, who also happens to be a hero of the people, kindly mixed a few never-before-released tracks from Munch’s Oddysee exclusively for this gift, to you, our dearly beloved fans!
