Media with tracker music OSTs
« on: January 07, 2024, 03:07:31 »

So, I've been working a little bit on a passion project of mine; a digital webcomic that will have accompanying music made in Milkytracker. It's a major reason I decided to finally take the step in composing tracker music myself for once, instead of just admiring the music format from afar.

As part of doing research and gaining inspiration, as well as simply finding some more good tunes to listen to, what are some games, shows, or other media that you know of that have a soundtrack composed entirely or partly in tracker programs? Have you worked on any soundtracks before? Do tell!

The soundtrack of Baba is You is actually composed in a tracker software, though (from my knowledge) they come in OGG file. You can find the original IT files here however: https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=search&query=baba_&submit=Find&search_type=filename_or_songtitle

Other games I know that use tracker music are Ion Fury, Unreal, Unreal Tournament 1999, Age of Wonders, Jazz Jackrabbit 2, Deus Ex, Tempest 2000, Star Control 2, One Must Fall 2097, Uplink, any of the games by PopCap from back in the day. (Including Plants vs. Zombies: https://modarchive.org/module.php?179342 )

That's really interesting actually! I've heard mention of Unreal, but haven't delved too much into it. It's neat to know that somewhat more modern games like PvZ and Baba Is You use tracker music. I'll definitely be looking into these soundtracks.

The only instance I can come up with are all early pop cap games such as PvZ, Dynamite and Zuma Deluxe; Enkord games such as Clash n Slash; There are also other "Office games" genre titles that have tracker music as .mo3 files. Ones I remember are: Astro Fury amd Alien Outbreak
