Just in time for the release of Sparklite, Scarlet Moon Records is releasing the game’s GameCube-style original soundtrack by composer Dale North.
“I was immediately taken with Sparklite,” says North, who also composed Wizard of Legend, Nintendo Minute, and The Long Return. “Seeing and playing it was like a sharp reminder of the things I dreamed of doing when I was a kid. The adventure games from those days had the best soundtracks, but not for any technical reason. They were the best at setting the stage, making you feel a certain way, and getting stuck in your head. That’s immediately what I imagined when I first saw Sparklite. It felt and still feels like a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to set something like this to music and I’ll always be grateful to the team at Red Blue Games. If you ever end up feeling anything like I did when I played the adventure games of my childhood I’ll feel like I at least got part of the way toward that goal.”
A digital booklet is available from Bandcamp and Apple Music packed with artwork, a composer interview, liner notes, and track-by-track commentary. A physical edition of the game and soundtrack are also available from Signature Edition. The Sparklite (Original Game Soundtrack) is available now wherever digital music is sold.
Fans of the Sparklite soundtrack who want to get their hands on even more may also want to check out a track composed for early trailers and an unused composition included on the PERFECT SELECTION Dale North Vol. One album on Bandcamp.
Sparklite releases on PC, Mac, and consoles on Nov. 14, 2019, along with the physical Signature Edition.
