ME-OS OST 07 - Sky Balls - Shikabok Frostlands

Share Download this song

Author Comments

This track is for the Shikabok Frostlands level in Sky Balls, available only on ME-OS.This was actually my first attempt at making a song fully using Sega Genesis sounds! Around the time I bought a VST called Plogue Chipsynth MD, which is a very accurate emulator of the sound chip the Genesis would use. I tried my best to make it sound like my normal music, just restricting myself to only those sounds. My main goal was to make the mood of the piece very exciting but also a little snowy, if that makes sense! I made sure to also use a lot of pitch shifts to make it feel like you're going higher and higher. Anyways, I hope you like it :)

Sky Balls is a game where you have to use randomly generated platforms to get as high as possible, without falling. It's a fairly simple game, with the addition of a few obstacles. The goal is to try and set the highest score possible. Sky Balls is available on ME-OS, which is an OS simulation game full of other games, programs, and more!

I think I said this in an earlier review but I love how melody-driven your music is. It's dynamic and exciting! And being that the platformer it's made for is fairly simple, I think the repetition and remix of your original theme throughout it sounds great, I'm sure it'd very easily get stuck in my head playing the game.

Thank you so much! I do hope this would be a song that would catch on for players haha
I love making melody driven stuff, it's one of the most exciting things about game development for me. So I'm very happy you like it :)

That's some nice vibes!
