Music from Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath on Bandcamp and Steam

French game publisher Microids has published compilation title Oddworld Collection for Nintendo Switch. The physical release bundles Oddworld Inhabitants series entries Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty, Munch’s Oddysee and Stranger's Wrath.

An off-kilter tribute to the Spaghetti Western movie genre, Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath first launched in January 2005 on the Microsoft Xbox console. Its unique world and compelling bounty hunter-centered storyline earned praise from critics upon its release, and led to a high-definition enhanced port incorporating enhanced visuals and cut-scenes, remodeled characters and updated audio design. The HD remaster is currently available for Windows through GOG, and includes the original game and soundtrack album by series composer Michael Bross.

The soundtrack for Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath features a dark, ambient style, where waves of subtle, often ominous sound wash slowly over drum beats that rumble like tribal thunder and pulse like a mechanical heart. The 25-track album can be purchased through Steam and Bandcamp, and is also streaming on Spotify and Apple Music.


From the product page:
You're the Stranger, a mysterious bounty hunter on a mission to bag the ultimate prize. And you need that money like no one else because there is something very wrong with your health and the only way to fix it is a very costly operation. However the nature of your illness remains a secret and as you find out during the game, for a good reason.
