Erica James It gives me so many myriad and surrealistic inspirations while i'm world building a tabletop game, and it's pretty great background listening too! Favorite track: Dark Flute.

cted I'd probably pass much of this album by if I hadn't played the game, but they worked so well together that the magic carries over. The album always evokes the game's excellent, unusual atmosphere. Favorite track: Lone Star.

about

Jim Guthrie's Sword & Sworcery LP: The Ballad of the Space Babies

Some of the songs on this record directly inspired the creation of the collaborative art+music+video game project known as Superbrothers : Sword & Sworcery EP, " a brave experiment in I/O cinema with an archetypical video game aesthetic" available for Apple's touchtronic machinery on the iTunes App Store. Other songs, like The Ballad of the Space Babies were created specifically for S:S&S EP. For more information about the project you might want to stop by swordandsworcery.com
