This one is kind of a record breaker for me. 170 tracks, over 90 saves, at least 20 different times of crashing. Was going for something along the lines of Gradius or R-Type, but who knows honestly. haha

P.S. As for the ending, well...I've been very into the revamped show lately, and theme was "space"... big_smile

I dont like it because :
You could easy sell that stuff as hard disco,
You added those wobble and chiptune stufff,
That beat is too dancy for me.
I love it for the same reasons, go figure.
Banger in the club, for sure!

170 tracks? Betcha you used three kick drums. This is really super solid stuff. I don't really know how to characterize it, it doesn't really give off an R-Type feel to me for some reason. I think it's too light and airy for that. To me... it's more like a... dual stick shooter. 9-bit style. Through different rooms. This is really solid work. There's a LOT going on here, it's almost like a medley. You should tear apart some of these individual themes and see what you can do with them. Top-notch, great production.

Magical!

Crashing 20 times sounds right for a sidescrolling shmup, maybe not as much for making songs.

I could definitely play some R-Type to this driving track.  The x-files ending just gave it a twist.  Kind of like beating the boss and seeing who the real enemy was yikes Nice work!

Awesome! Yeah, I really just didn't know how to end it, noodling around on the piano was the best thing I could've done. But flying through a level and getting to the boss stage and whatnot...that was the goal.

February 8, 2016 1:55 am

February 8, 2016 4:36 am

Wow, what a jam!! Love it dude, especially the 'all of it' part :y

February 15, 2016 8:54 am

Wow.  When it kicks in!!  Great disco undervibe and half time adventure.  Ending like something from a space movie.

the word "epic" sounds kind of small to describe this track. great track, great production skills!
