World Of Goo Soundtrack Available For Free
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

2D Boy's Kyle Gabler has released a free soundtrack for the unique puzzle game, World of Goo. The compilation features 27 tracks from the game and weighs in at 85 MBs. World of Goo is a puzzle title that challenges players to guide balls of goo through the game's obstacle laden levels by constructing items like ladders and bridges.

Thank you to everyone who emailed asking about a World of Goo Soundtrack. This is probably as close to an "official" soundtrack I'll ever make for the game World of Goo. I'm making it available here on my personal portfolio for free. I wrote much of this music specifically for the game, but many of the tracks were excerpts from music I had written previously for various small projects, or just for fun. This soundtrack includes the full versions of most of those songs, as best as I was able to recover them. Notes accompany the tracks below.

The majority of the instruments you'll hear are computer instruments, with a few live performances on top to add a bit of warmth. For the older music, I used one of those Sound Blaster cards that let you load samples into memory. More recently, I've been using the freeware sfz soundfont sampler. I have an m-audio keystation 49e midi keyboard for picking out melodies. Influences include Danny Elfman, Vangelis, Bernard Herrmann, Hans Zimmer, Ennio Morricone, and all the big movie guys. I grew up listening to them, and they remain a big influence in everything I write.

Thanks, and enjoy the music!
