The Spiritfarer theme is lovely–as if the game didn’t remind me of Spirited Away enough already! The dreamy shimmering intro is lush.
I really need to get back to Huntdown. I played it on and off with a friend over Parsec, which wasn’t ideal, but we had a blast. However, my friend had a newborn so his time online reduced even further. I think between the action and us talking while playing, I missed just how cool the soundtrack is. Is this the first synthwave-y track in the 'dome? We’ve had quite a few go far in the past so that’s surprising. Anyway, I love how much drive this has and how it shifts from that kind of, I dunno, Satriani-esque(?) guitar to the pulsing synths. It gets better with each listen too. Credit to the YouTuber for appreciating and lingering on the incredible pixel art. What a great backdrop, of which there are many in Huntdown.
I think of all the ‘traditional fantasy’ pieces, the Pillars 2 theme does the least for me! Listened to it a few times and even went back to the Pathfinder and Divinity 2 pieces to refresh my mind.
To All The Gamblers is the last track on the OST but it’s just a periphery piece of music you hear at the end of a canal (just to the right of the face on the thumbnail), and you’re never required to walk down that far, let alone stand there and listen to the whole thing.
