This is a non-exhaustive list without any classification hierarchy. We invite you to discover new soundtracks that will brighten up your day! 🙂

Let’s go ahead, we’re gonna make your day ! 😉

Stonefly, Between Music and ASMR

Composer : Natureboy Flako

Summer’s here and we’ve found what you need to make the most of the season. Stonefly is an indie game developed by Flight School Studio and published by MWM Interactive. The story takes place in a universe where the character is confronted with giant insects and will have to evolve in a nature as beautiful as it is lush. We can’t help but think of some of the Ghibli Studios movies while admiring the graphics.

Natureboy Flako is the artist whose sounds will accompany you throughout your journey. His chillpop style halfway between music and ASMR has the gift of relaxing the body and the mind. It’s an ode to nature that will delight your ears.

The track that stands out is “Thousand Year Old Oak” with its relaxing melody that sounds like a summer evening.

Chivalry 2, Awaken the Knight that Lies Dormant in Us All

Composer : J.D. Spears

Chivalry 2 is the sequel to Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, a first-person multiplayer online medieval combat game. It’s developed by Tom Banners Studio and published by Tripwire Interactive.

The soundtrack’s orchestral master is composer J.D Spears. This artist was able to bring us back to the epic battles of the time! This music is really designed to awaken the knight that lies dormant in us all.

For the more attentive among you, you’ll recognize certain themes from the first game taken up by J.D Spears in his compositions for Chivalry 2. Added bonus, some songs even have their music videos on YouTube played with a live orchestra. Like the one below âŹ‡ïž

Our favorite off this soundtrack is the title “For the Glory of Agatha” which will make your battle memorable!

Edge of Eternity, An Orchestral Soundtrack

Composers: Yasunori Mitsuda & CĂ©dric Menendez

Let’s stick with the epic and orchestral music, but let’s move on to a different kind of game: the JRPG. Edge of Eternity is a French production by Studio Midgar located in NĂźmes. The game mixes Fantasy and Science Fiction and plunges us into Heyron’s world in the grip of a pandemic called Corrosion, transforming all forms of life into misshapen abominations.

As for the music, the soundtrack is in good hands since Yasunori Mitsuda (Chrono Trigger, Xenogears, Xenoblade Chronicle
) and CĂ©dric Menendez (Hover) are in charge. The two artists, of Japanese and French origin, have designed an orchestral soundtrack paying homage to the JRPG. It’s with great pleasure that we listen to each song as they perfectly blend into the game’s aesthetics. Plus, the development studio took time to show us the soundtrack’s recording process in a video on their Youtube channel. See below âŹ‡ïž

The entire OST will be out soon, but you can already listen the first part.

We particularly enjoyed the track “Whispering Forest” with its “soft/epic” side that really keeps us going.

ENDER LILIES: Quietus of the Knights, Dark and Tragic

Composers : Mili (Yamato Kasai, Momocasew, Yukihito Mitomo, Shoto Yoshida, Ame Yamaguchi & Ao Fujimori)

Ender Lilies is the latest game developed by Adglobe and published by Binary Haze Interactive. This is a side-scrolling action-RPG. The game immerses us in the kingdom of Lointerre, a land as beautiful as it is dark and tragic. A rain that renders the population deadly, sweeps over this dark fantasy world. The player embodies Lily and will try to unravel the mystery of this terrible curse.

Ender Lilies didn’t cut corners because the famous band Mili composed the game’s soundtrack. They are known notably for having also worked on the opening of the Goblin Slayer anime, “Rightfully” (2018) and the ending of Ghost In The Shell: SAC_2045, “Sustain ++;” (2020).

Shoto Yoshida, Yukihito Mitomo, Momocasew & Yamato Kasai

What can we say except that their compositions hit the mark and perfectly match the aesthetics of the game. You can easily get lost in their music while crossing the kingdom of Lointerre.

We fell in love with the track “Bloom – Intro” with its beautifully arranged strings!

Backbone, Atmosphere of Whiskey Vapors and Cold Tobacco

Composers : Danshin & Arooj Aftab

Backbone is a game developed by EggNut and published by Raw Fury. Here you’ll experience a role-playing adventure using the codes of dark fiction. You’ll play a disillusioned detective barely making rent in a dystopian Vancouver rendered in high-quality pixel art. Players will, through the character of Howard Lotor, solve an investigation that turns out to be more complicated than it first appears.

To accompany the story of this raccoon private detective, a magnificent jazz soundtrack was composed by artists Danshin & Aroof Aftab. With their music, we are directly immersed in this atmosphere of whiskey vapors and cold tobacco.

We particularly appreciated the melancholy vibes that emanate from the track “I Wonder“.
