Interstellaria was a major departure from chipzel’s roots with LSDJ. I think for the game’s setting it was necessary to make that shift and I understand it was a huge undertaking that took over two years according to her bandcamp page.
Normally I’m not a huge fan of OSTs for games and generally don’t cover them but chipzel is one of my favorite chiptune artists soooo… I ran into the same issue I face when I listen to OSTs without having fallen in love with the game first, with out the game’s setting and character context the music just isn’t as enjoyable. Music gives characters and setting another dimension in an actual game and without those complimentary aspects I’m don’t think this is as enjoyable to listen to.
There are some tracks that I’ll put into my rotation for a while but I’m not sure if they’ll last as long as her other work.
