Ádhamh – Spore Runner OST

“Two months ago I was scrolling through eBay and stumbled across a peculiar relic of the 90’s; a Playstation 1 game titled ‘Spore Runner’ The item description on ebay provided a brief synopsis of the narrative of the game, which was as follows:

‘Ireland 2035 – as the nation grapples with global climate devastation, a peculiar black market has arisen for the elusive and ever dwindling supply of Liberty Cap mushrooms. With the rise in prevalence of the use of this psychedelic in the early 2020’s, figures colloquially referred to as “Spore Runners” began to emerge in society; their goal being the identification and procurement of the famed (yet still illegal) “magic mushrooms” from the last remaining eco-systems resilient enough to sustain them.”
