We've spent a crazy amount of time both playing and reviewing Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP [$4.99] and as members of our forum have mentioned, Jim Guthrie's music is a major component to the game. If you've been looking to get that same music to accompany you to do other things besides play Sword & Sworcery, the soundtrack went up for sale in a number of different formats last night. Your first option is to swing by Jim Guthrie's Bandcamp where you'll be able to download the digital album for $7.99 in basically any format imaginable. For $30, they're offering a 180g 12" vinyl copy of the soundtrack complete with a limited edition art prints.

Alternatively, for $8.99 you can head over to iTunes and grab the digital album there, although I'm not sure why you'd pay more when Bandcamp offers so much more flexibility... But, anyway, they've also released this incredibly odd video to coincide with the launch of the soundtrack featuring its creator Jim Guthrie:

I've been listening to the soundtrack most of the morning, and it goes with browsing the TouchArcade forums very nicely. In gaming-related news, the iPhone version of Sword & Sworcery is still on track for release later this month. According to Craig D. Adams, the artistic mastermind behind the game, they'll get more specific about release dates in the next few weeks.

    There should be a 1-time, in-app generated "e-mail the developer" button that gives you a code for a free DL via Bandcamp.

    Ghost Monkey did this w/ Zen Bound, and it led me to explore his work further.

    I bought the game... throw me a bone.

    The game was so-so, and that wasn't due to the soundtrack HAHA

    • EastsideStompers

      So by that do you mean it was genuinely 'so-so', or that it's tantalizingly mysterious trailer managed to bite it squarely in the arse. Just curious, as I'm planning on buying the iPhone version, but your comment made me think twice...

      • http://twitter.com/VULTR3 Mike

        Well to put it bluntly, I was looking forward to the game, especially the artwork. The artwork delivers in full. But I've played the game once so far, and not been tempted to crack it open again. That's MY experience with it though. It's way too guided for me, and the narration seems cheesy and takes me out of the mood the game and music are trying to set.

      • EastsideStompers

        Ta for that. Much appreciated: )

  • Mister Ed

    I could have done without that hi def chewing scene. But the cat was reat something.

  • Noah

    $7.99 Canadian... which is like $0.29 cents when you convert it to USD.

    • http://twitter.com/The_Unflattered Gee Lampa

      More like $8.29.

      • Noah

        After reading your response Gee Lampa, I think it's safe to assume the elevator doesn't go to the Penthouse.

      • http://twitter.com/The_Unflattered Gee Lampa

        I'm not sure why you'd think that, considering that $8.29 was the exact exchange rate for that figure in CAN>USD as of the moment I posted it. Unless you're suggesting that I somehow missed a sorely over-valued attempt at sarcasm (humor).

        In that case, I'd posit that it's tough to speculate on the existence of any penthouse whatsoever, if you've never even SEEN it!

      haha, fool... You don't follow the news much, do you?

  • http://twitter.com/Inaba_kun Phil Baxter

    I'm more interested in knowing when the iPhone version is out.

  • Jay

    It turns out this game is far too powerful for an iPhone. There's just NO WAY all those detailed 2D pixels will ever run smoothly on a 3.5" screen.

    Please, please release the Soundtrack on emusic.com too!

  • Boskk

    Canada & U.S only? Why?

  • Nimble1

    Only thing that annoys me is that this was originally listed for IPHONE, when i got my hopes up like half a year ago... now it's Ipad only, I don't own an ipad... I can haz iphone version plz?

    • Charles

      Yeah, it's fairly obnoxious to have listed it as iphone/itouch, then switch platforms on us..

  • skamando

    I WISH I COULD PLAY IT ON MY IPHONE SO I COULD HAVE A REASON TO BUY THE VINYL!!!
    YOU READ ME. SWORDBROTHERS? ANY CHANCE I COULD BE CLEARER?

    • Thechansen

      They have stated numerous times, the game is coming to iPhone... First iPad, then the LP, with the iPhone copy one month after the iPad. COULD THEY NOT BE ANY CLEARER?

  • Anonymous

    Haha. I had a record player maybe 20 years ago when I was a kid. All I played was Gremlins story read along book/record. I haven't had a record player since then.

  • http://twitter.com/MFCH Chris

    word. I really WANT to want the vinyl, but I can't play the damn game yet!

  • http://profiles.google.com/superspandy James Kochalka

    I love the soundtrack. However, it's strange that it costs more than the game, considering the game includes the soundtrack. I don't think it means the soundtrack is over-valued, I think it means the game is under-valued.

      American Elf?

    • Mister G

      Peanutbutter & Jeremy?

  • Oceadge

    • reminiz

  • Whiteplayer3d

    iphone version, come on :(

  • reminiz

    Hmm... silly question... do ipad games work on iphone?...

  • Justin

    I ordered the vinyl a few seconds after it went on sale and I am extremely pleased I did. The soundtrack is just incredible. I just can't wait for the game to come to the iPhone. My brother has it for iPad and he loves it even though he had never heard of it before I told him!
