“The videogame community has a lot of love for Supergiant Games, and not without good cause,” comment album producers Brian Diamond and Stephen Robert Froeber. “The genres and gameplay of their games run the gamut and we wanted to reflect the diversity of those styles in our musical tribute to the original material.
Nearly 50 arrangers and over 120 collaborators have converged to show their love for the games. We hope everyone enjoys listening as much as we enjoyed creating it.”
Some of the album highlights include: a stunning choral rendition of “Mother, I’m here” from Bastion, a gorgeous and visceral cover of “We All Become” from Transistor in the form of 90s grunge and hard rock a la Garbage, and the virtuosic live ensemble performance of “Path to Glory” from Pyre by the Videri String Quartet.
