The other day I opened my inbox to read an email from Eric M. Smith. Eric is an illustrator and cartoonist whose art has appeared in comics, games, books, and more. Go find him at his website here. He sent me an amazing piece of art including the original three members of Alone in Vaarn: Leif, Faulkner, and Symeon (featured image, above).

“Wisdom’s Tragedy” by Disasterpeace
This is another great track from the OST for Hyper Light Drifter, an enigmatic post-apocalypse game about ruined new-beasts, dead titans, and a cruel enemy–all with a heavy science-fantasy overtone and retro gameplay.
Disasterpeace’s arrangement captures the mysterious, heavy brilliance of the beautifully crafted world of Hyper Light Drifter. It also clicks with the Vaarn setting awfully well. If I had to choose a single album and put it on repeat for Vaarn gaming music, this would be it.
