Impact Winter OST

ambient OST synthwave VGM

I have a bad habit of getting emotionally invested in IPs that no one gives a shit about. Not in the typical 'I found it first' or 'This is so underated' kind of way though because generally these properties are, for the most part, accurately rated. Impact Winter is a game I really enjoyed and the IP will now, most likely, sit in a vault at BANDAI NAMCO until I die. The game sees you and your floating Ako-Light robo companion explore a city buried in snow and gather supplies to keep a group of survivors alive for 30 days until you can be airlifted out of the apocalyptic tundra. 

Mitch Murder is not only a well known contributer to the '80s retro synthwave genre but also a sought after soundtrack composer. He is most notably responsible for having produced the majority of the music for the 2015 film Kung Fury including it's title track. Mitch is also behind the OSTs to Megamagic - Wizards of the Neon Age, Impact Winter and contributed 2 tracks to the Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number soundtrack.

This OST is John Carpenter, Vangelis and Wendy Carlos with some beatiful pads and piano sounds that help you remain stoic in the face of arctic desolation. I believe a games music is a major determining factor in its replay value. I would not have played through this game 3 times if the OST didn't absolutely slap the way it does. Favourite tracks BD-750 and Night Watch

FFO: Waveshaper, Com Truise and Perturbator
