I finally finished Lack Of Love this weekend after neglecting the game for some time. What can I say? The ending’s great and truly felt like the climax of an emotional journey. If I get a chance next week, I’ll do it again and record the conclusion for YouTube.
After finishing the whole thing I got to thinking how much Ryuichi Sakamoto’s score really helps convey the emotion of the story and gameworld. Then I got to thinking that I might buy the soundtrack that was released alongside the game. Easier said than done. Though it was released on CD just 8 years ago I’ve found the L.O.L soundtrack quite hard to track down. The only place I saw it had an asking price of $99, which is a bit too rich for my blood.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that you can buy the whole thing on iTunes, however, for under a tenner. I prefer physical products, but if I don’t find a cheap CD soon then I may have to go for the digital version. I’m quite eager to see how the music holds up out of context.
