Year of the Tape was created with the intent of providing an overview of the releases within the video game soundtrack tape community.

There are many cool releases, and I found myself frustrated that most seemed to only exist as a ‘flavour of the week’ before being forgotten about. My hope is that this resource will help people discover new tapes to appreciate as well as provide general information about them.


Fan projects are intentionally marked only as ‘Unofficial’. If you are a fan project creator and would like to have your releases removed, please get in touch with me here

I ask that everyone who uses this site to please respect the privacy of others.
