I've heard various tales about this product. One story has it
that it was put out in the UK; another is that it was put out
privately by someone inside Origin, either as a joke or just a
present to some of the staffers. Either way, it was never sold
commercially in the US. This was probably what prompted Origin to
put a gag in the end of the Black Gate
credits, saying "Soundtrack available from Origin!". Unfortunately
for them, the gag backfired, and they had so many requests from
people thinking it was a real product that in the next game,
Serpent Isle, they had to put in a
retraction: "Soundtrack NOT available - so DON'T ASK!" Guess it
just goes to show, be careful what you ask for! Fortunately for the
fans, the interest was enough to spur Origin to put out a REAL
soundtrack of those games, which is listed below.
