Thanks a ton guys! I'm now listening to samples and videos of pretty much everyone mentioned. I knew about Disasterpiece, and already own a couple of his soundtracks. I love the chiptune stuff.
Dear Esther is right up my alley. Beautiful.
I like the Aquaria music I heard from Alec Holowka.
The music for Thomas Was Alone is fantastic.
Jamestown is so big movie sounding. I love it.
Binding of Isaac is a game I have no interest in, but the music is really good.

Lots to listen to and purchase. I love it. Thanks.

Aivi Tran and Surasshu on the upcoming game CRYAMORE -- tons of music has already been released for it and the game's not even out.

I like that they are showcasing the music from the game, but I hope that they stop at some point. There's something about the charm of a game's soundtrack that dwindles for me if I hear too much of it outside the game first. That pleasant surprise of hearing an exciting or beautiful track paralleled with the action on screen is a very strong bond that I'd like to experience together for the first time. Regardless of that thought, I really enjoy what has been presented to the audience and can't wait to hear the rest of it (in the game)! :)

Also, did we all forget about flashygoodness's Tower of Heaven Soundtrack?

EDIT: I'd like to also add this: http://flashygoodness.com/music/. There are a lot of great tracks on here, but the one that is over-the-top energizing is "Hardware Interrupt." Click the Archive link on the bottom of the page to listen to a SNES version of it, which I know a lot of you will like a lot (especially if you're a fan of Mega Man X).

I love that game and soundtrack. There's a fantastic remix with vocals, too, that Ramza introduced me to.

I think on OSV the other writers and I gave indie VGM soundtrack award in 2011 to Tower of Heaven.

And yes, the David Saulesco vocal version on the "Sharing Is Caring" EP is fantastic. The other version of the song on that disc is good too ... I think it's a Dain Saint (Cipher Prime piano guy) remix.

Oh, I love the Tower of Heaven music! *purchased*
I like this Flashygoodness guy. I could listen to his stuff all day.

I agree with this completely. I never listen to a the soundtrack outside of the game until I've played through the game. Or if it's a game I will never play, like with most of these indie games.
I just love that feeling of discovering beautiful music in game. The kind that makes you want to pause and just listen for a while. Cimmaron(sp?) Caverns in Dust did this to me. First time in a long time that happened.

Thanks again, guys!

*looks around*

Uh, yeah, I also like to listen to the music in-game first.
 *cough*

 *cough*

Okay, I lied. :)

And yeah, Tower of Heaven is a fantastic soundtrack-- and a darn fun game, too!
