I Saved My Game Here Once

By Ipaghost on May 18, 2014 7:03 pm

A love letter to that little village in that one game you played a long time ago. You should probably go back and visit, the locals are wondering where you've been...

It took me completely by surprise... And it's a really beautiful surprise. Really gorgeous melody and atmosphere, and the synths, the child laughing... I really loved this one.

Now I've got to leave you to power up my Amiga 500 and play some Kirandia.

NIIIICE!!!

This is awesome. Those atmospheric sounds - really nicely done. For me it reminds me of I think the hometown of Final Fantasy 8.

I habitually dance around this fire in DayZ, often with legs malfunction .. great work btw.

May 19, 2014 2:46 pm

Haha.... very cool piece.  I haven't played the consoles for quite some time now.

The guitar at the beginning reminds me of Alex Lifeson a bit. Somehow it gets even better from there.

Lucky! I wish I had an Amiga! I had a lot of fun making the ambient sounds, a lot of them were using xoxos' nature vsts which are great and free! The wind, the birds and seaguls, and the coyote were synthesized. If I had more time I probably would have tried to synthesize more than that! The girl voice was my girlfriend pitch shifted a couple of steps. It was a last minute addition and she was quite reluctant because she is shy about her voice, but I'm glad it's in there! "Hey listen!" is a reference to Navi from Zelda, which she plays a lot of!

I was totally considering doing a Final Fantasy style battle in the middle! For a second anyway!

Seems to be a trend in fantasy games!

I wish I still had my old consoles. Luckily the nds can emulate a lot of them!

Hmmm, I never listened that much to Rush to see the similarity. I didn't know they did acoustic stuff. But thanks!

Nice playful mood.

Playful and beautiful, the environmental sounds rounds this off very nicely!

That is a shame since there are so many free pc vsts. I was always under the impression there was a way to use pc vsts on mac; have you tried http://www.synthtopia.com/content/2012/ … r-mac-daw/?

I also like your diversity in styles as well! Keep it up!

thanks I know this post... too much hassle for me tongue I have virtualbox for running most of my pc-only sound apps and plugins. if I really need something, I record it directly in the VM and then export the audio to process it further in my mac DAW. that said, this happens barely. I don't want to use plugins for this and that when I am working more intuitively and with less tinkering which for me, kills my creativity tongue

May 22, 2014 1:20 am

Great job, I was listening outside and didn't realize the birds chirping were actually in your track, I'm very impressed with how many different styles of music you have composed for weekly beats

I agree, I wouldn't want to deal with all of the hassle either!

I love it when a song makes me think something is really there! Unless it's cop sounds!
Glad you appreciate the styles. I wish variety was more marketable in the mainstream, it seems people get mad when an artist doesn't churn out the same old stuff they love.

this is great and brought back a lot of memories of my nes playing days.  I like how the theme is used in different sections as if you're lil Link scrolling around the screen.  The added efx are cool too especially when we get to ride the horsie! smile  The guitar sounded awesome too.  If you revisit this theme, def go for the battle scene smile  Nice job!

Yay, I'm glad you could get immersed, that is what I was going for! The biggest reason I didn't do a battle sequence is that it would have taken away from this theme, and I want to do it separately so I can go all out balls to the wall with it, like mega boss modes which keep coming back bigger and badder!

impressive! that's a really great job!
