OFF's original soundtrack (OST) was composed and produced by Alias Conrad Coldwood, and can be found on the Unproductive Fun Time website, or here in the higher quality .FLAC format and with more hidden tracks.
Many of the tracks on the album are difficult to classify by genre. The composer describes the album as a "sweet blend of electro hovering and rhythmic, sometimes fun and sometimes scary". Some of the songs have whispering in them as well.
A YouTube playlist of OFF's soundtrack can be found here.
Track Listing[edit | edit source]
|1||Global||The talking sound effect used by the Elsens.|
|2||Silencio||Plays when venturing within The Nothingness. Sped up version plays in Chapter 3 of The Room. It consists solely of cryptic whispering which has yet to be translated. It is unknown where the whispers originate from but it has been implied that they come from the men who have descended into The Nothingness via purification as told by Enoch. Chapter 3 of The Room has a particular room with black, humanoid figures whispering the same words as with the whispers in The Nothingness, implying that these are the purified entities of The Nothingness.|
|3||Fourteen Residents||Plays in the Main Menu screen. A slowed down version played in minor key, named "Fourteen(fake)Residents" in the game's files, plays during the fake Title Screen in Chapter 3 of The Room. It is the original song played at 80% speed, making it more drawn out and melancholic.||OriginalSlowed down|
|4||Pepper Steak||Starts up when battling most adversaries. The in-game version lacks both the beginning trumpet and ending (the music dying off, like a record scratching, and then turning dull and almost unlike music, with a few low tones) from the OST.||In-game LoopOST Version|
|5||Not Safe||Plays in the Zones after purification; it has an ominous, almost psychotic/schizophrenic feel to it. The song itself is composed of uncoordinated chiming, loud wind gusts and the whispers from "Silencio". Interestingly, there is a loud sound of banging on metal and a muffled voice shouting loudly and saying "Au secours", which is French for help. It is unknown where the voice is coming from. However, it may be deducted that it could be from whoever is banging on the metal, as it may be a call for help from the room that the metal blocks or covers.|
|6||Stay in Your Coma||Plays on the Game Over screen after losing a battle, killing The Judge in the combat tutorial or running out of time in the residential area. "Stay in Your Coma" was sung by Coldwood himself. The title and vocals may be telling the player to give up and quit playing.|
|7||Empty Warehouse||In most areas of Zone 0. In the soundtrack, the sections played outside and inside are back-to-back.||InsideOutside|
|8||Tender Sugar||In Sugar's cellar and the battle with her. The second half of the song is not present in actual game and only appears on the official soundtrack.|
|9||Rainy Day (and Meat)||Plays in most areas of Zone 1. In the soundtrack, the two segments of this song are connected together. The track is titled for the sounds of both rain and squelching meat.||InsideOutside|
|10||Soft Breeze||In Zone 1's smoke mines.|
|11||Clockwork||In Zone 1's post office. The song is composed of seemingly reversed tones and the ticking of a clock or pocket watch. A slower version plays at Dedan's cottage in Chapter 4 of the Room.||Slowed down|

|13||Fake Orchestra||In the battle with Dedan.|

|23||Magic Pipe||In the Game of the Mortal/Perilous Fall in Zone 3.|

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Pepper Steak is incorrectly labelled as "Peper Steak" in the French version of the game.
- A lot (if not all) of the sounds sampled in Pepper Steak were sampled from another old ragtime/foxtrot-type song also named "Pepper Steak" by The Washboard Rhythm Kings which can be listened to here
- "Panic in Ballville", and its boss, both have "Pepper Steak" and "Avatar Beat" leitmotifs, respectively.
- The song title "Windows Licking" is probably a play on words in French. The French term for window shopping is "lèche-vitrine" which if literally translated would mean "window licking". Chances are that the title is a direct translation of the plural form of the word "lèche-vitrines".
- Many of the songs have extra pieces of music in the soundtrack, which do not appear in the versions found in the game files.
- Avatar Beat is what is considered microtonal music, which is music that uses pitch intervals smaller than semitones.
