Atmospheric action-adventure game Strayed Lights launched in April for Windows consoles. Records label G4F has opened preorders for the double vinyl soundtrack album, composed by Austin Wintory.

The two-disc analog record release contains 15 music tracks, pressed on blue and orange transparent vinyl records, accompanied by a gatefold sleeve. Each order includes a digital download in a choice of MP3, WAV, or FLAC format. Shipping is estimated for November. Album mastering is by Joris Hoogsteder, with art direction by Nicolas Fantoni. The hourlong album is streaming on Amazon Music Unlimited, Spotify, and YouTube Music.

The debut title by developer Embers includes no text or dialogue to allow players to imagine their own subjective interpretation of the game's narrative. The combat system incorporates a parry-focused fighting style that the devs state is a more forgiving adaptation of the mechanic found in FromSoftware's Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. A color-matching system lets the player swap between blue and orange flame attacks to counter foes, while adapting to enemies utilizing the same techniques.

Strayed Lights is currently available for Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, along with Windows through Steam, the Epic Games Store and GOG.

From the product page:
