This is phase one of a boss theme for upcoming indie game Ley Lines.
So why make the boss theme a threnody of sorts? A mourning song?
I would be so eager to spoil the plot, but I will not. But it made me cry the first time I saw it, and I put my feelings to music. In the midst of the panic of fighting a boss, I put in whatever sadness I felt, into this piece. It doesn't sound like much to you right now, but trust me -- when the game comes out, it'll all make sense.
