Soundtrack and merchandise available now!

Wargroove Vinyl Soundtrack

Soundtrack Available for Pre-Order
Wargroove’s amazing soundtrack was developed by Pete Lepley (aka Phonetic Hero) and will be distributed by Boss Battle Records. We’ve shared a number of the tracks on our blog and through Youtube, but now the entire Soundtrack is available to pre-order! We’ve been working really closely with Pete throughout the development of the game, and have been so impressed with his work. We can’t wait for everyone to have the opportunity to get their hands on it!

We asked Pete and Boss Battle Record’s founder Fabian Malabello to share some thoughts about their work on the project.

Pete: I’m a huge fan of Advance Wars, and writing the music for Wargroove was something of a dream project. Albeit challenging, providing additional character for each of the commanders, their factions, and the world of Aurania was my absolute pleasure and I’m deeply proud of all the work that’s gone into the soundtrack. Chucklefish has made something special and incredibly charming in Wargroove, and I’m very grateful to have had the opportunity to aid in its creation. Hope you all enjoy the music!

Fabian: Working with Pete (Phonetic Hero), and being able to watch and support his creative development over the last two years, as he worked on Wargroove’s soundtrack, has been a positively rewarding experience. Pete pushed personal boundaries and left his creative comfort zone to produce an admirably world-class original soundtrack. The music adds an entire dimension of relatability to the characters, and in addition to Chucklefish’s brilliant design, and the fantastic voice acting, Wargroove is going to be a tactics game for the ages. I truly believe Pete is set to be one of the most sought after indie game composers of our time, and look forward to seeing what paths open up thanks to the team at Chucklefish

You can preview and pre-order the album now on bandcamp! There’s also a vinyl press of the soundtrack available for pre-order with custom art and a beautiful package produced by our awesomely talented friends at The Yetee.

Speaking of The Yetee…

Wargroove Merchandise
We’d partnered with The Yetee to produce merchandise for both Starbound and Stardew Valley – so when they approached us to brainstorm some merchandise for Wargroove we knew they’d be a great partner.

In addition to the vinyl soundtrack, they’ve produced some amazing tee designs, hangable banners with a crest for each faction, sticker sheets of units, and chunky PVC pins for 12 of Wargroove’s commanders! You can view the full product line up on their Wargroove collection page.

Here’s one of the tee designs – appropriately called ‘PupGroove’ – showing off each faction’s good boys.

You can purchase these individually or show your love for a specific faction by bundling products together! We LOVE how these all came out and couldn’t be more excited to share them with you all.

We’ve also got these all listed on our shiny new Store Page on the Chucklefish site. We’ll be updating it as we get more products available!!

Hi everyone!

PHEW, what a day yesterday was! It was fantastic seeing all of your responses to our release date announcement (Feb 1st, in case you missed it!), and we now can’t wait for the launch to roll around so you can all join us for some online skirmishes.

As of today, you can now also pre-order Wargroove on the Xbox store, where the game will also be launching Feb 1st on Xbox One!

And those of you Switch players out there, don’t forget you can also pre-purchase and pre-download the game straight to your devices ahead of the release day.

We wanted to take the opportunity to say a big thank you to the team over at Blitworks who have worked with the team here at Chucklefish to help bring Wargroove to Xbox One and PS4. They’ve been a great support and it has been a pleasure as always working with them.

We’ll sign off for now, but do keep an eye out for impromptu livestreams over on our Twitch and Mixer channels between now and launch. Feel free to also drop by our Discord to say hello and chat to the dev team! And did you all spot a certain new addition to the Wargroove cast in the Cinematic Trailer…?

Wargroove launches February 1st!

Wargroove is almost here!

It’s been a long time coming, and after several delays (typical Chucklefish) we’re proud to announce that Wargroove will be available on February 1st on PC, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One, priced at £15.99 / $19.99 / 16.99€, and playable in 10 languages – with PS4 and news of the release date coming soon.

You can even pre-purchase (and pre-download) Wargroove on Nintendo Switch right now!

Wargroove has grown substantially since it was first announced and has become a massive, fully featured package that we hope you’ll love. Take a look below at the Cinematic Trailer we revealed in today’s Nintendo Indie Highlights Showcase, featuring an incredible animation from The Line and keep an eye out for the release trailer dropping on February 1st.

Everyone at Chucklefish is truly humbled by the support we’ve received throughout the development of Wargroove, and the encouragement to keep going until we were truly happy with the game. Wargroove is Chucklefish’s second in-house project and with the quality of its art, sound and technical achievements we’ve also seen our own progress as developers reflected in its outcome. We’ve come to realise that for a game to succeed it can’t be anything less than a labour of love. We hope Wargroove will challenge and delight you in equal measure.

As we see out the final days before release, join us on our discord server and hang out with the dev team! We’ll also be scheduling some livestreams in the run-up to launch, so keep your eyes peeled

Don’t forget – you can wishlist the game on Steam and pre-purchase the game and pre-download on Nintendo Switch today!
