Is there any more info on this release? All I can find is the streaming service on the official site (download isn't not prepared yet). Our database has a similar entry (e.g. Ys Online), but I think this is a borderline case.

This really isn't a "soundtrack release." It's more like they just posted some samples online. I'd say delete it.

Yeah, it also looks like some samples to me. If we start to classify this as free soundtrack releases we'd have to add an entry every time some samples for an upcoming OST appear on the net / publisher's site.

I agree, we probably don't want to add this one until there is a more finalized substantial soundtrack release.

Yeah, I asked Mitsuda on Twitter yesterday and he says there isn't a release scheduled at the moment.

What seems like a hundred years later, it appears unlikely we're going to know much more about Lime Odyssey. Because we now know (and it's obvious from listening to the game rip) that there are composers beside Mitsuda on the score, I want to provide a partial breakdown of assumed composition credits.

Before I begin that... I have a theory about the unusual state and incomplete knowledge about this soundtrack. To put it bluntly, I have a feeling that Mitsuda's portion wasn't finished. That is, most of his synth tracks sound like they are mock-ups meant to be performed in part or wholly by live instruments. One clue is the expanded use of piano, often an instrument used to create mock-ups but also an instrument Mitsuda tends not to feature quite so heavily (without a substantial ensemble to back it up) as he does here. Another clue is the actual arrangements of the music. That's not to say they sound bad--Mitsuda always sounds good--but they may lack the polish in terms of arrangement of his other "final" work.

To be clear, I actually really love all of Mitsuda's tracks here, even if some are really not technically "finished" (which I could be utterly wrong about). I wish Mitsuda started doing more RPGs again so we could hear more work like West Tumbara (Dark) and Nunudito Town. I consider them some of his best work, and the latter two are among my all-time favorites of him.

Without further ado, here's my breakdown. It's divided into two sections: those by Mitsuda, and those by the other composer(s) (Sirius Entertainment). I'm using track titles provided by the game rip. To my knowledge this is the most complete rip to date, but I would be happy to be proven wrong!

Great research! I've heard Mitsuda didn't release this because he was really dissatisfied with the quality of the recording. I think if he would release his part of the soundtrack, he would want to record everything anew.

I suppose he would. I think it's possible that the game's developer used Mitsuda's tracks as-is, and funding ran out (or was withdrawn) to record more live performers. Considering Lime Odyssey's very long beta stage, this wouldn't surprise me.

Isn't Lime Odyssey confirmed to never leave beta now? I remember reading that somewhere earlier last month. If so that will be a major disappointment, for years I've been anticipating hearing Mitsuda's soundtrack in context.

the game was closed due to lack of funds, apparently.

Same here. I managed to track down every available track that people had posted from game rips and such, but I really was hoping for a true release of the game, and definitely wanted an OST. Some of the music from that game I regard as among Mitsuda's best work.

I agree. West Tumbara Dark and Nunudito are especially great. A cross between Lime Odyssey, Shadow Hearts 2, and Chrono Cross would be the perfect mix for Chrono Break.
