There’s a lot of stuff here I’ll have to check out sometime - nice.
For my part, I mostly listen to soundtracks from other games when playing CDDA:
Akira Yamaoka - Silent Hill 0-4 soundtracks (including all the ‘unreleased’ music extracted from the game files; hours and hours of stuff)
Hitomi Shimizu/Kuniaki Haishima - Siren soundtracks
Alexander Brandon - Deus Ex Invisible War soundtrack
Michael McCann - Deus Ex Human Revolution soundtrack
Power Glove - Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon soundtrack
Ben Houge - Arcanum Soundtrack (doesn’t fit CDDA as well, but it’s my favourite game OST ever, so…)
Works best with regular start at evac shelter. By the time I make my way to town with a makeshift I am good and ready to be suprise butt secks’d by a skeletal dog and the song is starting to kick in full motion.
Well, hello, this thread. Where have you been all this time?
Titled “Nordic Ambient Music”. 3 hours long. Works surprisingly well most of the time, IMO, but does sometimes force you into fantasy D&D RPG vibe. Might be great if one were to cut out the “bad parts”.
Then there’s these two similar mammoths. Creepy, disturbing, dark ambient. Sometimes soothing. 1+ hours long each.
“Dark ambient” btw is what I used as search words in YouTube to find those. Please share any great search words. Also, if you ever get your hands on a game called NEO Scavenger, that game’s entire soundtrack is probably potent material for Cataclysm.
Well, Ride of the Valkeries is always good for a fight.
There’s also a song… I don’t remember the name, but it is in the style of an announcer talking about what to do in the event of nuclear war. It ends “mine is the last voice you will ever hear. Do not be alarmed.”
well I use royalty free music from : Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)

I tried to choose music that had an “end days” feel to it.
