Castlevania: Order of Shadows has always seemed to me like an odd game in Konami's vampire-slaying franchise, not just because it's the oft-forgotten mobile installment but also because of the people who worked on it.

Though series producer Koji "IGA" Igarashi was involved in its creation, Konami contracted several Western developers to work on the game.

Tyrone Rodriguez, now at Nicalis working on the Cave Story WiiWare remake and Night Game, was the lead designer on Order of Shadows. And Vincent Diamante, who composed the music for Thatgamecompany's acclaimed PSN game Flower, also worked on the mobile title's soundtrack for Konami.

Diamante has uploaded every song he composed and arranged for Order of Shadows online ("delivered by a collection of Roland JV patches"), including a couple tracks that didn't make it on the final game. You can hear the full soundtrack, one of the few saving graces of a mostly panned game, on his YouTube playlist. Highlights below:
