This is the Hot Tin Roof original soundtrack. What's Hot Tin Roof?
On the one hand, it's a noir side-scrolling adventure platformer, stuffed with style and charm. You're Emma Jones - a two bit gal in an 8-bit world - and you're the Private Investigator on a string of grisly murders. You'll run, jump and climb through a massive 3D city (it's not just a flat sideways plane), sleuthing up clues and tracking down the killer.

Here's some of what the critics are saying about Hot Tin Roof's soundtrack:
"It’s a fun, well-written, well put together noire adventure with characters that are very likeable, music that is absolutely spot-on, and an art style that’s probably the best I’ve seen so far this year."
"Shadows, a slight art deco vibe, and jazzy soundtrack ensure that players fall right into the world. It’s a definite standout thanks in large part to smart atmospheric design."
"The music is one of the strongest points, with that 1920’s jazzy feel, building suspense with double bass plucks and it really makes you feel like putting on your coat, flicking up the collar and lighting a cigarette; but that would break the overall style the game has of itself. This game is very aware that it is a game and in that sense doesn’t take itself seriously and my god I love it even more for that."
"As the game starts, you’re thrust into an office as a the quiet *tisk* of a drum cymbal loops in the background. Eventually more is added to the eventual soundtrack, adding personality in every room you explore. While it may seem like the usual jazz and blues style the game takes inspiration from, it quickly takes a shape of its own. The soundtrack beautifully fuses those recognizable tones, and shifts them to a chiptune style of its own unique blend. Those electronic mixes fit oh so well into the world you are delving into, reminiscent of those films of the past. Imagine if jazz was redone, retaining a few of the instruments while adding in overtones of an electronic beat."
