Earth-2 2021

by Gautoz

After spending six years working for Gamekult as a game journalist, Gautoz made a transition to independent game journalism on Twitch. In addition to this, he has been co-hosting Les Démons Du MIDI, a VGM podcast that airs monthly since 2013.

By day, Gautoz is a dedicated game journalist, while by night, he shares his love for VGM as a podcaster, and he's an avid 8Beats enthusiast around the clock. He's proud to present his first music-only video game mixtape, Earth-2 2021, which celebrates one year of indie games by curating the best music that these indie games offered in 2021.

While games like Returnal, Halo Infinite, and Psychonauts 2 may have great music, today is all about small teams, smaller budgets, and big bright ideas.
