I'm curious how you all feel about the soundtrack. I absolutely love it. It has a huge impact on the mood of the game. Taking away the game's music, the bright colors and very friendly sprite images would make it feel much more.. youthful, innocent. This is the vibe I got of the seeing only images, or watching trailers. Now, playing the game, it absolutely has a more abstract, surrealist feel that still images and trailers failed to create. Clearly, the music isn't the sole contributing factor to the surrealism. The game's main concept by itself is abstract enough to do this. I absolutely love how the concept, the level design, the artwork, the chracters, and the music all come together to make me feel like I'm in some world that's a fusion of Salvador Dali, Georges Braque, and Nintendo Famicom.
Anyways, the music. I love it, mostly for the emotion it creates, as I've already stated. I had expected a more lighthearted soundtrack, akin to most platform games. What we were given was a mysterious, synthetic, and in many ways dark sound. It reminds me of movies from the 80's, too.
Sadly, none of the songs are on Youtube to enjoy freely. I found the soundtrack website here.
Here's the only sample I could find elsewhere, for your listening pleasure. This particular song, to me, is especially dark.
