While work continues on the new .mpegasus album (solo follow up to the _ensnare_ collaboration "Binary Opposition") I thought I'd have a break and do a couple of game-music mixsets.
So here they are.
First up is an upbeat collection - jaunty melodies, chiptune magic, all sorts of fun.

Then there's a downbeat collection - soundscapes, sombre tunes, the works.

They're each about an hour in length, so should help the odd train journey pass pleasantly.
Here are the tracklistings, with links to the some of the games and musicians featured :
