  • Topic: Selling and Distributing OSTs
    etc for a medium popular indie game Our game is releasing on PS4 in the spring and we re shooting for Steam too A lot of unknowns here myself included but wondering what sort of experiences you all have had Any brief thoughts would be helpful as well as on the topic of marketing OSTs Thanks GANG and looking forward to meeting more of you Alec Creator Topic Viewing 6 replies 1 through 6 of 6 total Author Replies 02 03 2016 at 6 34 pm 4008 Elliot N Callighan Participant Great question Alec I d really like to hear insight on this as well 02 04 2016 at 1 12 pm 4017 Kole Hicks Participant Hello Alec Welcome On an Indie title I think you can realistically expect to sell maybe a few hundred copies rarely up to a few thousand I ve noticed that anything associated with the game directly does better than the OST on its own For example unless you have a pretty large fan base it s hard to imagine that the majority of your sales will come from Bandcamp iTunes etc On the other hand bundles are a good idea the OST up on Steam has performed the best for me I always recommend retaining as much of the rights revenue to your work as possible but if the company is willing to additionally compensate you for a in the OST revenue then it s worth considering Especially if they re open to the idea of OST Game Bundle sales on multiple platforms They ll have some overhead for calculating your so they d probably want to offset that cost make a little on the side as well Good luck 04 04 2016 at 12 07 pm 4230 Alec Galambos Participant Hey Kole Sorry it s been a while but thanks so much for the thoughtful response this makes a lot of sense and is similar to what I ve heard from other indies and some AAA composers I ve been able to talk to Will ask this in another thread also but have you or anyone else had any experience with digital distribution platforms Zimbalam Loudr Tunecore etc Thanks again and hope all s good Alec 04 04 2016 at 12 35 pm 4231 Alec Galambos Participant Actually think all these questions are equally relevant so let s keep the discussion here anyone have any experience with their OSTs on digital distribution platforms A lot of composers will talk about how most of their success comes from Steam with OSTs bundled with the games but will also make sure to have their music available in itunes spotify google etc through one of these distribution promotion services 04 04 2016 at 9 28 pm 4232 Donovan Tousignant Participant I ll chime in and say I have used Tunecore before It s not a bad service but going back to what Kole said Tunecore just makes it easy to get your music in lots of
