Let’s Play Koudelka by iconoclast187

Hi all, long time no blog.

Got an email (thanks Kassandra!) saying that there’s a new Let’s Play Koudelka on YouTube by iconoclast187. Give it a watch!

I have almost no Koudelka content on this website – I’m still working through Shadow Hearts 2. I had a lot of computer problems recently so getting content up has been difficult but hopefully we’ll get back into the swing of things.

If you have any fan content you’d like to share let me know and I’ll give you (or them) a shout out!

Video Games Live: Level 5 Album featuring songs composed by Yasunori Mitsuda

Hi Shadow Hearts fans! Here’s a piece of news for anyone who is a fan of the Shadow Hearts Soundtracks and Yasunori Mitsuda. Our friends over at Video Games Live recently completed a Kickstarter for their 5th album, and it includes songs from Chrono Cross and Xenoblade, both of which Mitsuda helped compose.

See the the Video Games Live: Level 5 page for more details.

Update on the site: I am still working on it, I’ve had mega computer problems recently, so thanks for your patience.

Update: 18-10-15

Hi guys, quick update – just to say I’ll be moving onto the Shadow Hearts: Covenant part of the site now. Shadow Hearts is 99% done, I just need a few more screenshots and stats, but the bulk is there.

First thing I’ll be doing is getting all the stats for the monsters and then move from there.

Thanks for being so patient!

Koudelka Composer to join Pixel Noir team

Hi guys, bit of a random news story for you today:

Pixel Noir city

Hiroki Kikuta who composed the Koudelka Soundtrack has joined the team for a a new WIP Indie Game Pixel Noir. It is currently being kickstarted over here. He will be working with their current composer Kunal Majmudar to write some songs for the soundtrack.

“When I was first approached by the team at SWDTech Games, I was deeply impressed by the unique world and vision that they shared in creating PIXEL NOIR. My mind immediately began racing as to how PIXEL NOIR might sound, and I’m looking forward to collaborating with their talented team!”
-Hiroki Kikuta

I’m really excited for this project, it’s a JRPG with a detective twist, and it’s made by an indie developement company which is always cool.

New Mobile Theme

Hi guys,

Quick update – we have a new mobile theme as there were a lot of issues with the old one (such as it forced the mobile site onto desktops and the menu was hard to use). There are still a few issues but I’ll get to them when I can!


23/08/15 Update – Site Review & Format Update

Hi guys,

99% of the info for the First Game should be up now (exciting!). Bear with me – I’m currently reviewing every single page on the site to check what info needs updating, what images need adding and all that jazz. I’m also improving the look of some pages.


We have a sticky nav now!

Sounds dodgy.

But if you scroll down (on Desktop at least) the navigation should be sticky – wayhey!

Have a nice weekend,

Added ability to donate

Hi guys, quick one – you might notice that there’s a “donate” button in the footer and the header. If you want to donate via paypal please do as it helps keep Judgement Ring ad free.


Mobile Audio Works!

Hi Guys,

I realised recently that the old audio players were flash based and didn’t work on most mobiles. I’ve upgraded The Shadow Hearts Arranged Soundtrack to HTML5 so now it works on mobile as well as desktop. I apologise if it looks a little ugly – I’m just concentrating on getting it working.

I will upgrade the other soundtracks hopefully soon – my Internet connection is really poor at the minute and it’s taking ages!

Go ahead, have a listen :)


Search Box is now powered up!

Hi all – after a little while of having a look for ways to improve the search… tada! The search box should now give you suggestions as you type :D It’s amazing!
