Story of Yars' Revenge
Side B has begins with an electronica song called Yars' Revenge which makes heavy use of vocoder and includes sound effects from the game, then a military ballad called Fly Yar Warriors. There is an additional dramatic reading detailing the attack of the Yars on the Qotile and eventual victory.
I didn't learn about this product until March 2018, while looking for additional information about the video game for my web page. I found pictures of the product online, and then found a recording of it on YouTube. I really enjoy tie-in products like this and wish game companies would go back to the days of making additional tie-in material in various forms of media.
I do not own this book or album. I have listened to the audio, but have not seen the book.
At least two versions were made, one with a cassette (catalog number: KSC-88943), one with an LP (catalog number: KSS-5033). The book's catalog number is KSC-943.
