I noticed Tidalis OST disappeared from iTunes/Amazon, any reason why?  I didn't quite get my hands on one (lack of income) before it disappeared :(

Vol. 2 is in the works right now. There is a lot more music on the way. I'm glad you guys like it!

Is there an ETA on when we can give you more money?

Haha! I would say Vol. 2 will be ready in about a month. We have a lot of content to work on right now, and part of that is the new tracks! I just gotta get some new sound effects going as well haha.

You will get the tracks as free DLC in the upcoming updates as they're composed! The higher quality Vol. 2 OST will be on sale through iTunes, Amazon, and Band Camp, and you can also listen to it for free on Band Camp.

No, I mean the high quality tracks you sell on iTunes and Amazon. :)
I prefer to buy my soundtrack on Steam to have everything in one place.
(And still hope silently they will have official soundtrack support in the client one day >_>)

Btw your music is awesome.
IntroMission.ogg is currently my favourite. Listening to it while programming :D.

Haha, to be perfectly honest, I didn't even know you could sell soundtracks on Steam!

As for the HQ tracks in the actual game, they're exported at such a high rate that putting them in the game would make download time for new users a nightmare. We ran into problems with this with our puzzle game "Tidalis". People were complaining that the download time was too long, and it was all due to the file size of the tracks.

But, that being said, I try my best to make the quality of the in-game music as best as it can be without having gigantic file sizes!

The only game I've seen sell an OST on Steam was Sanctum, but yes, it seems that you can sell the OST as a premium DLC pack. :)  Mostly, devs tend to sell it on their website/popular music stores.
