Pixel Mixers decided to go with relaxing/soothing covers of some of the most beautiful themes in VGM to make Tranquility a wholesome listening experience in support of SaveTheChildren.
Save the Children works hard to help children gain access to quality education and health services, support them in times of great need, and protect them from risks and harm. We work with the government in developing policies, plan and budgets to ensure that children, especially those living in poor communities all around the world, have access to quality basic services and have their rights protected. https://www.savethechildren.org/
Tranquility features 33 tracks from more than 50 musicians, featuring some of the chillest tunes from games like Final Fantasy VIII, Animal Crossing, Xenoblade, Chrono Cross, Wind Waker, Mario Galaxy, Undertale and many more!
Pixel Mixers partnered with GameGrooves for Heartwood, a charity album in support of Rainforest Trust. For those who don’t know, Rainforest Trust is a US-based nonprofit environmental organization focused on the purchase and protection of tropical lands to strategically conserve threatened species. Heartwood features 15 tracks from 24 artists, including video game covers from Chrono Trigger, Octopath Traveler, Trials of Mana, Xenoblade Chronicles, Final Fantasy X and more.
