Lauren the Flute I listen to this album all the time. It's like the perfect fusion of old-school chip music and badass rock music. So, so, so good. The game may not exist, but the music is the real deal. Favorite track: Deep Blue Dreams.

Jonathan Poulin such an imaginative album. very creative and makes the best mix of fast paced rock and chiptunes that i've heard to date. loved his previous work but this made me a listener for life. Favorite track: Final Departure.

Max Noel A blend of high-energy chip leads and rocking rhythm guitars that perfectly captures the spirit of late 80s/early 90s shooting games. If there were any ZIG remaining, this would take every one off for great justice. Favorite track: Final Departure.

MythrilZenith An incredible album featuring the best of what-could-be in a gaming soundtrack. Primordial Soup is that classing "mid-game level" theme that you just love to listen to, and the way it progressively adds small changes over time? Wonderful. Favorite track: Primordial Soup.

Kotix Masterpiece of "chiptune rock" and the world of music as well. Great example of how Chiptune rock must be made. Favorite track: Asphyxia.

about

This is the musical tale of an epic gaming journey, through the dangers and wonders of the unknown, on a mission to save the world before it disappears into nothingness and oblivion. Take your high-energy chiprock nostalgia powered ship through 4 stages of lightspeed parallax harmony, and beat 4 gigantic bosses of melodic bullet hell.

Prime Legacy is the soundtrack to a fictional STG, in the glory of those games, my favorite genre ever. The story it tells is very ambiguous, as one can tell from the song titles, and embeds possible deeper meaning. It is left open to interpretation on purpose. It's up to you to let your imagination go wild while listening to it !

"The best soundtrack to one of the best SHMUP games never made." -@GameritisGuy
