DiDaKTiiK I fell in love at the first sight with this one. How? Honestly, I don't know. An instant love :)
Happy Retirement has this Twin Peaks vibe ... awesome! Favorite track: Happy Retirement.

jr_lavoie I saw this game on Steam, and put it on my wishlist for when it came on sale. I didn't buy the soundtrack as an extra there (as it contained less tracks); I bought it here and am very pleased! The game is funny and good, but would it still be good without this music? I don't think so, as this so perfectly captures a number of different horror style moods. Buy it here for best value! Favorite track: The Darkside Division.

Ohm0001 Absolutely love this. You just nailed the atmosphere. Great inspiration made for a great album, that makes you feel like the best darn detective in town. Favorite track: Goblins-and-Ghouls Division.

about

This is the complete soundtrack for The Darkside Detective

Originally inspired by John Carpenter and other 80's films, this soundtrack eventually grew to pull inspirations from Danny Elfman, William Orbit, Nine Inch Nails, funk music, and old video games. The whole album ended up being quite a grab bag of different styles and ideas. This is what makes soundtracks fun!

Despite being part of a comedy game, the music plays its part relatively straight-faced. This helps sell the atmosphere and lets the comedy do its own thing without the player being distracted. I also wanted the music to reflect the rich colors of the game's gorgeous pixel art.

The album cover art was made by Paul Conway, the artist for The Darkside Detective.
