This version is the one that ultimately made it into the jam entry for the Bored Pixels Jam 8 -- a tense and infuriating platformer called The Day of Wrath!

I composed this, and Mackie lay down chip bass and revisited the sound a bit, and made it what it is now.

this is great!

It's like if you mixed Castlevania with Pokemon and final fantasy. Very cool subdued and somber melody here with cool Bache-styled rhythmic work.

I love it<33 Such a good track!!

I love the expression of the lead and the unexpected chords. It's pretty relaxing.

This reminds me of Pokémon red or was it Pokémon blue not sure which one...lllol. BTW this was a joke you know sarcasm?? I know both have the same sound track thats why I made the refer i don't see how this is half ass commentary when other are giving one word reviews. Sorry if it went over your head or you have no sense of humor...

EDIT: Look idk who put fire ants in your tea but seems you ought to lighten up a little. You made front page I listened and honestly the first thing that came to mind was the nostalgia of the Pokémon games which is a good thing in my opinion. I mean the music has no lyrics or words or message was you expecting a Rolling Stone review???

EDIT: just because you didn't like my joke doesn't mean I was being insincere. "Reminds me of early Pokémon games" zzzzzzz what fun is that. You are talking to a literal clown like when I perform in public what you see in my profile pic is really how I dress so you can't expect nothing too serious. Plus I wasn't hating or putting your craft down so I don't get why your so bum hurt and coming at me. You could be making the sound track to Pokémon emerald rn.

Edit: originally I was trying to compliment you and how spot on your track was to Gameboy music we grew up with I was more or less poking fun at the Pokémon games essentially being the same game. Maybe im bum hurt cause I never caught them all.
All jokes aside im a musician and I would know how to make any thing sound like a game boy game and would love to learn and give yall props for that. Im new here so still learning and exploring things here. I like the pico games so far so ill check aforementioned title ty. Rock on keep it up ✌

Troisnyx responds:

Both of them have the same soundtrack. This has been a known fact since 1998.

If you want to make a commentary, actually mean it. None of this half-arsed nonsense.

EDIT: There are some reviews whose commentary I trust far more than anyone else's (etherealwinds *especially*, since he knows where a lot of this music is coming from). It was abundantly clear that you, on the other hand, lacked the emotional literacy or the honesty to actually say what you felt. The track was tagged with 'sad' and 'sorrowful,' because I felt these things, and you decided to make light of it. You had to make a "joke" that didn't even work for it to be ostensibly longer than the one-worders that were on here. To me, that's not sarcasm, that's not even trying. A half-arsed review is a half-arsed review, whether it's a one-worder or a full sentence.

EDIT: Then you could have just said that instead of making a joke that fell flat. Say what you mean, and mean what you say. You could have stopped at honestly saying "This reminds me of the early Pokémon games" and left it at that rather than being disingenuous.

EDIT: I have scored games before so you're flattering me at the end, thank you. It appears you haven't heard of Poe's Law. I have met hundreds of decent people who do their utmost to avoid even *sounding* disingenuous, and acknowledge when they do sound it. This is the problem of text. Some have, intentionally or not, hidden behind the ambiguity. I understand what this is now; in future, it might be wise to clear the ambiguity. I ran the joke past a good few friends without mentioning names and yeah, they were inclined to feel as much as I did.

I acknowledge you didn't intend it, it's water under the bridge. 🙂
