505 — Sturmwind Kondensat Soundtrack

Posted on April 26th, 2014

We're happy to announce that Nils Feske aka 505, the author of Interlude, just released the soundtrack for the indie game Sturmwind. Sturmwind is a side-scrolling shooter released for the Sega Dreamcast console in 2013. The game was developed by Duranik — a German game developer originating from the Atari scene.

That's what Nils said about the release:

"Just as the game itself, the creation of the soundtrack came a rather long way since 2006. In fact after years of doing music on Atari computers only, some of the tracks were my first attempts on producing music using a PC. The idea was to create a driving mix of mid-90s techno and chipmusic. With several rounds of rework and new compositions the soundtrack was finally finished in 2013. The songs of Sturmwind Kondensat represent my personal favorites. Enjoy!"

— 505

The album is available on a "name-your-price" basis via 505's Bandcamp.

Taking a break!
