There comes a day when we must all pass away, but it just so happens that in Spelunky you die every day, all the time. The homicidal dungeon crawler has enjoyed success this summer on the Xbox Live Arcade service even though it’s out to get you in every conceivable way. Dying isn't all bad in Spelunky, however, as it allows you to enjoy Eirik Surhke’s funky fusion soundtrack over and over.
Surhke recently decided to treat tortured fans to the game's soundtrack on Bandcamp. With 62 tracks, it contains all the music from the game as well as 14 bonus tracks cut from the final release. Among the cuts you’ll find a track by chiptune extraordinaire Shnabubula.
Head on over to Surhke’s Bandcamp and pick it up for $7. Just make sure you pay, as you know what happens if you don’t pay the price...
