Until You Fall synthwave soundtrack published through Steam

Sony's PlayStation Plus service offered Until You Fall as a free download in early December. The first-person hack-and-slash roguelite by Schell Games is compatible with the PlayStation VR platforms, along with Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift, and Steam VR applications.

The fantasy setting of Until You Fall introduces the player to Rokar, a once great civilization built on the magical element of Aether. Now in ruins, monsters populate the landscape. Taking on the role of the Rune Knight, the player must block, dodge, or sidestep the barrage of enemy attacks, while countering with sword slashes and cast spells. Aiding the knight is the Runesmith Agatha, whose forge can upgrade the player's armaments with the aether collected from Rokar's devastated landscape.

The physicality of an Until You Fall gaming session, paired with its neon-tinged locale, is complemented by an appropriately synth-heavy soundtrack. The music score, entitled "A Swordwave OST," is primarily composed by Daniel Cohen, with keyboardist Chris Dudley of the band Underoath contributing the outro track “Aether’s Glow."

The ten-track synthwave compilation is free to download with the base game, via Steam. All tracks are streaming on Apple Music and Spotify.
