RAMA Logo

This is a fanpage specifically about the 1997 PC game for DOS and Windows 9x. (If I remember correctly, it was also ported to the Japanese Playstation.) It's pretty hard to find and few people seem to know about it, which is rather sad. It has an interesting story, quality graphics and some of the best music I've ever heard in a game.

If you want to buy it, it's available on CDAccess.com here; you can try eBay, but.. Well, my last search (on December 24th, 2005) only gave me one hit. :P (Rendezvous with Rama for the Commodore 64 had three hits, though!)

RAMA Music

2008.03.09: with lots of leet codehax from manakoAT, I present the Uchuu no Rendezvous~RAMA~ Soundtrack, the Japanese PSX port of RAMA, in PSF format! :D You can look for a plugin for your favored media player here!

All the music I found in RESOURCE.SFX via GAP (Game Audio Player). Tweaked for length with Microsoft Sound Recorder, and encoded with RazorLAME 1.1.5 with the --r3mix settings.

Have fun, go leech-happy. :) If you don't like the names I gave the songs, don't be afraid to change them, they're just names I thought were nifty.

You can download them individually from the links below, or get them all at once in this zip file. (20.4 MB) If the spaces in the filenames give you problems for some reason, just download the zip. :P

Kudos to Boogeyman from Quest Studios Forums for identifying the Unknown tracks!
