Giveaway Friday: Cosmic Star Heroine

Some weeks, we’ll be giving away digital editions of excellent albums to site visitors. However, only a handful of copies will be available to visitors and will usually be given away on a first-come, first-serve basis. Keep checking the site every Friday to get your hands on each giveaway!

This week’s giveaway is HyperDuck SoundWork’s score to Cosmic Star Heroine, a retro game with a retro soundtrack.  The game is an old-school JRPG with a classic 16-bit SNES design and heavily infused with sci-fi elements. The music of Cosmic Star Heroine fuses together styles from the 80s and 90s for a wonderful throwback album, and has had a positive reception on Bandcamp. We spoke with HyperDuck SoundWorks’ Chris Geehan and Dan Byrne-McCullough last year about the soundtrack, where they described their goal with the sound: “I think what we wanted was a journey through so many corners of the 80s and 90s, both in games, anime, and film, and not just a Newretrowave soundtrack, I don’t think something like that would have satisfied what we were trying to do with the music.”

The soundtrack can be redeemed here using the following codes:

About the Author

Emily McMillan

After graduating with a master's in teaching, I realized that I wasn't quite ready to leave video games and their soundtracks behind. I've been keeping in touch with the video game music world from Texas by working with VGMO and updating my own YouTube cover channel. I love the feeling that comes with the discovery of a brand new soundtrack, and always look forward to the next rekindling of that excitement. Along with teaching and writing, I also enjoy listening to film scores, classical music, and playing pretty much any RPG you can name.

    This game represents years of dreaming about doing a Friday the h game, those dreams have brought us to this point. We’re taking the development of this game very seriously, and every penny we can put towards building a bigger and better experience, we will. We promise.
