Sword & Sworcery EP Soundtrack Released on Vinyl, Casette Tape

In the world of iOS games, disposable thrills are the norm. Games like Tiny Wings and Angry Birds are fun, but beyond killing some time, they don’t really stick with you. The creative group Superbrothers sought to change that with their Sword & Sworcery EP, creating a game built upon haunting imagery and a strange, otherworldly soundtrack. Now, that soundtrack can be yours on handsome, sturdy 180 gram vinyl or on a far more portable cassette tape. Oh, and digital download as well — but who still uses MP3s anymore.

The soundtrack, penned by Jim Guthrie, consists of 27 tracks. Most are under a minute, but a few push past the three minute mark and are closer to what most people would consider “songs.” In a smart move, one that really should be emulated by all purveyors of analog music, an immediate download is available to anyone that purchases the casette or vinyl album.

There’s even a limited edition print from Adventure Time’s Pendelton Ward, and other goodies, for those that order now. If you’re unfamiliar with the game, check out the video and audio below, or just buy it at the app store. Maybe you’ll love it, maybe you’ll hate it, but you probably won’t forget it.
