The Nintendo Quest film soundtrack by John McCarthy arrived... on cassette!

My copy of Nintendo Quest arrived a few days ago and I've been going through the enormous amount of bonus footage on the 2 additional DVDs. It's a great film with a lot of epic footage and a lot of heart. This flick will become beloved by gamers because it stays true to the human side of collecting games. You'll cheer them on and feel their pain.

I was stoked today when the soundtrack arrived on a bright yellow cassette! It doesn't get any more retro than this. I was thankful I held on to my boombox since it contains the only cassette player I own that doesn't require me to be driving.

In McCarthy's words:
I've taken the cues I wrote for the movie and expanded them into 15 songs presented here in all their 8-bit glory. This has been a dream project for me. I do sound design and music for video games as my day job and was overjoyed to have this project as my evening/weekend job for the last year or so.

If you missed out on the Kickstarter campaign that offered this awesome analog version of the Nintendo Quest soundtrack, you can still get a digital copy on Bandcamp.
