Our weekly Music Monday segment has always been about highlighting VGM that moves us, or makes us feel something in some way. Today, I’m feeling pretty sad, as tonight we’ll record our final episode and retire the podcast indefinitely.
So, what a better song (and better game) to end Music Monday on, than with “Stella’s Departure” from the excellent Spiritfarer soundtrack by Max LL. The game was one of my favorite games of 2020, and while it was a difficult game to play during the pandemic, I found it strangely soothing then, and it’s strangely soothing and appropriate now.
After all, the entire game is about learning to say goodbye.
Thank you for everything. I love you all.
