The world is not beautiful, and in that sense it is.
I heard about that too, but they'll most likely be slightly different from each other, and the OST won't have tracks with SFX. Personally, even when the official soundtrack comes out - I plan on keeping both the OST and this rip cause they'll both be unique each in their own way.
P.S. just noticed one more thing about the rip: unlike other tracks, "Alone" doesn't have fade-out. So if you'll be adding fade-ins, don't forget to also add fade-out for this track.
P.P.S. to be honest, I'm not a fan of this album cover (boy's pose looks odd on a static picture), so I'm working on a few alternative album covers using graphics and screenshots from the official site. I'll upload them here when I finish.
I actually left Alone's cut without any fade because it sounds so similar to Mirage's beginning (the next track). It sounded strange to fade out a sound that comes right back in a few seconds later.
Okay L[one]R I've got the continuous version of the gamerip finished (sounds really nice, thanks for the idea). If you'd like to provide artwork for it, I'd be more than happy to include it. I think for continuity, I'll leave the non-continuous gamerip's artwork as is, and use your new artwork for the new version.
I'll upload the album as soon as you've got the art!
The continuous version is just 1 disk with 24 tracks (as opposed to 3 discs with various numbers of tracks each), but all the track names are the same.
Sorry, the forums were down... again.
Anyway, here's the album artwork "release candidate": [Hidden link. Register to see links.]
I've included 2 tracklists for both types of rips.
Let me know if you want something fixed or changed.
P.S. looking forward to the seamless release. :P
Thanks! A few changes I'd love to see made:
1. The image you chose for the cover is chilling if you know what scene it is, but without the dead body hanging there, it loses a lot of its power. I chose an image for the first cover where the boy was in motion, and I think that's especially important for the continuous mix. Extra.jpg is okay, but I'd rather have a more interesting background. I like using LIMBO as large as you did, that's important for album art.
2. The font you used for the subtitle on the cover doesn't fit very well. I'd prefer to see something a little thinner, maybe san-serif and something less illustrious.
3. On 03 - Credits, I'd like to be credited as Fish (I love this font by the way, it's perfect).
Here are a few examples of what I imagine the cover to be.
Thanks so much for the work you've put into making these!
I know what you mean though. I too get a slight feeling that it doesn't really belong with the rest of the picture. You've chosen a great font on your examples, so I'll use something like that.
Also, are you sure you want it to be just "Continuous" in the subtitle? What about "Seamless"? Or "Continuous Mix"/"Seamless Mix"? Some people might not get what exactly is there that is "Continuous".
This is the font that I used for most text there: [Hidden link. Register to see links.]
UPD: I made 4 versions of front covers. 2 similar to the first one I made, and 2 with backgrounds from your examples. I also changed subtitle font on all 4 covers (similar to one on your examples). [Hidden link. Register to see links.]
I think a calmer version without much motion would fit the album better, since the music is mostly very slow and focuses on atmosphere. In my opinion Front v1 reflects that atmosphere of calmness, sadness and loneliness, so I still vote for that one.
v3 is pretty interesting composition-wise, but to me there's too much action going on.
v4 is another one of my favorites mainly because of its simplicity.
Overall though I'm not sure which I like the most - I've been looking at them for way too long, so I can't judge clearly anymore. +__+
I had forgotten about that "Playdead Presents" font! Very clever. I don't want to call it a soundtrack because I don't want it confused with the real OST. Is it just me or is the background image in v1 and v2 look like it's blown up? It looks kind of pixelated to me. My vote goes to v4 with v1 coming in a close second place. I'll upload the new gamerip shortly.
Alright I edited it into the original post, let me know if anything is awry!
Was gonna post this yesterday, but FFShrine was down.. AGAIN...
If anyone needs any of those alternative covers - I've uploaded them all here: [Hidden link. Register to see links.]
And again, great job on the rip.
Wonderful job on the new seamless rip, fish, and I like the covers. Although, I'm not a huge fan of how thin the text is in the subtitle, but that's just me.
Thanks! Been looking for this for a loooooong time!
Incredible work done on all versions of the rip! And what a marvelous soundtrack! Thanks so much fishfish for your tireless work on the rip.
Thank you so much man, i loved that game and its ambience, its music... it's just amazing, thank you so much
Thank you very much for creating this soundtrack. It is always a pleasure when these songs come up on my playlist.
LIMBO is an amazing game, the lack of a normal storyline, the mysterious atmosphere, the use of black and white while venturing into an unknown world known as limbo...and of course the 'music'. This game is a true masterpiece! Heh.
First of all FISH, thanks for the gamerip. I came across it while scavaging youtube for music, found a playlist, listened, and honestly thought I was listening to the official soundtrack, when I found that it came from this website and was only a gamerip, I had to register and download etc. Basicly, awesome work, this is as good as a gamerip ever gets in my opinion.
Again - THX!
not enough words in the world to thank you for this! =D
Thank you soo much. After I finished the game on PS3, I immediately went to iTunes to look for the soundtrack. Honestly, I was disappointed to see only 6 tracks on it. This is muuchhh better! =P
Very good music THANKS
