The soundtrack for Pyre [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pyre_(video_game) ] has been playing non-stop in my head for the last few days.

To semi-quote Tvtropes: "You have been expelled by the Commonwealth into a harsh realm called the Downside, only rescued from certain doom by the strangers Hedwyn (a Human-"Nomad"), Jodariel (a Human/Demon) and Rukey Greentail (an anthro dog-"Cur"). Your only hope of regaining freedom lies within the mysterious Book of Rites, which only you can read. You are tasked with carrying out the Rites described inside, co-ordinating your team as their Reader, engaging in a ritualistic ball game where you fight against other travelling triumvirates, so that you might win back your freedom." But in short it's "Fantasy RPG meets Visual Novel meets Sports Game" or to be pithy "Oregon Trail X NBA Jam via 'Wizard Basketball'".

A few choice tracks:
The game's main theme song and the major battle theme for the "Liberation Rite" (admittedly a bit spoiler-ish but this is the version on the official OST):


Or if you prefer instrumentals with a good beat:




And for how diverse the genres it dips into, the theme for the "The Dissidents" a team composed entirely by Curs and lead by a "Barker Ashpaws," who sports a red mohawk and anarchist/blood-knight personality, is called "Thrash Pack." It is as Metal (or is it Punk-Rock?) as you'd think bearing that title:


Fun Fact: The game's composer, Darren Korb, sung the male parts for the vocal tracks (characterized in-game as "The Lone Minstrel") and also voices Rukey, granted it's in the game's conlang of "Sahrian" and likely a little bit tweaked for extra vocal dissonance, but still neat.
