haha, thought i'd forget about this eh? well it's here now; the fire up my ass before i go out with a bang. made in a really short period of time, but with all my soul poured into this. (at least with the first two songs) made for the newgrounds vgm challenge, with my prompt being mutty99's "virtual bond".

"magical girls ~ vs the unthinkable" explores two magical girls who come face to face against an eldritch abomination; the unthinkable, who's only purpose is to destroy the fantasy world they've built from a young age. i wish i could do more like make a whole album about this concept, but i think starting off at the climax should be enough.

i would write a story about this, but i think these songs can pretty much explain for themselves.

alright, enjoy.

Newgrounds VGM Challenge - Virtual Bond: Review

As the linked thread says, this submission is a giant mash of 3 tracks. I'll analyze them separately, to then make a summary consideration. I like the idea that each sub-track has a lore of its own, pretty clever.
Now, let's get started.

1. Reunion
While not being a fan of the panned piano at the beginning, I found the melody uplifting but not too cheesy: happiness and suspense at the same time make a nice contrast when pictured together properly. I particularly enjoyed the depth you gave to the strings, very smooth and clean. Overall, solid introduction.

2. Stand
Here we go into a Touhou-Undertalish like type of music. The instrumentation is very diversified, and gives very nice action vibes, not too intense as well, which is a good sign; paying attention to balance is always an effective course of action. Those clock ticks at 5:25 too, I like them a lot, they help shaping the atmosphere.

3. Unthinkable
First, mad respect for the brilliant use of Kirby 64 Final Boss' soundfont: this is my favourite part of the track, its climax you could say. I like the fact that is also divided into two sections, to give maybe that segment where a reflection about the feelings of the two protagonists is appropriate.

This submission is hella long, yet you managed to make it interesting, and that's already a big achievement to begin with. I read about your thoughts on the ending: I think your thought is well considered, yet a tiny bit of ending/staff roll would have been the cherry on top. Maybe for another track? Who knows? ;)
You proved yourself to not only follow my prompt properly, but also to portray it from your own point of view; I could even learn new perspectives from this track as well! Awesome job.

Thanks for participating!

Aand hopping over here! I wish I could get to write songs as long as this! Great tone choices and energy all around. It reminds me a lot of the Cave Story music, lots of personality in this track!
