Koopa Soundworks’ World 1-2 is an epic game music collaboration

world1-2header

What happens when you lump Mega Man, Journey, Spelunky, Ninja Gaiden and Silent Hill’s composers together with game music cover groups like Stemage, Danimal Cannon, Video Game Orchestra and more? World 1-2, that’s what.

Koopa Soundworks’ Mohammed Taher has amassed a musical collaboration of epic proportions, bringing game composers like Manami Matsumae (Mega Man), Austin Wintory (Journey), and Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill) and indie videogame music cover artists aboard to create both original, game-influenced music and VGM remixes for the masses.

Games like Metroid Prime, Sword & Sorcery, Super Mario World and Final Fantasy Tactics are covered, and the genres widely vary from electronic chiptune, orchestral and some shredding metal. It’s a lovely ear orgasm.

You can stream the entire album for free on Bandcamp and Loudr, but $10 for your own digital copy sounds pretty swell, don’t you think? Or if you’re more of an iTunes sort of person, there’s that for $11.99.
