This has been an idea that has floating in my head for sometime but it's only now that I've finally found the time and motivation to do it.
While I'm by no means the first site or webpage to have a list of download links to legitimately free Video Game Music (VGM), I've noticed that some of the music from older games are starting to become harder to acquire, as the sites that used to host them are now becoming defunct. Consequently, I thought it would be a shame to lose these awesome gifts to the gaming community, especially soundtracks from PC games, so I decided I would start my own Free VGM Repository.
It's not much to look at yet, as it only consists of four soundtracks, namely the soundtracks for Arcanum, Cthulu Saves the World, Deus Ex: Invisible War and E.Y.E.: Divine Cybermancy - although ultimately I suspect there aren't going to be too many soundtracks listed here anyway since they'll all be (a) soundtracks that are legitimately free and (b) generally soundtracks from PC games that I've played.
There are more game soundtracks in the pipeline; I intend to at least add the following soon:
- The 39 Steps
- Fallout 1 and Fallout 2 by Mark Morgan
- King of Dragon Pass
- The Longest Journey
- Portal 2
- SimCity 3000 by Jerry Martin
- Torchlight 2 by Matt Uelmen
- Universe at War by Frank Klepacki
- The Ur-Quan Masters by the Precursors
- The Witcher
- World of Goo
Currently I use a cloud/online storage service called PCloud to store these files and I trust that nobody will have issues in downloading them. Let me know if you do.
