Can an 8-bit song sound epic? That's the question that made me start working on this song. With the Peach VSTi, some good old white noise and a few hours of work, I did my best to make this song sound as epic as possible (without overdoing it, of course).

That song is surely legit 8-bit goodness! I love how you drop the bass around 1:15... gives a extremely good winning sensation. Amazing! I think I'm going to get the peach vsti just to see if i can do something alike. Congrats!

No Words

Just...Awesome :D


It really reminds me of the music used in GameBoy Advance Castlevania games =P

Hades responds:

It does have that feel, but that might be because of the intro. It is slightly reminiscent of some Castlevania area themes. Thanks for commenting!


I like it alot the intro was great lol the whole song was actually!

Hades responds:

Thanks! Good to hear!


I must admit, i've never really been a fan of 8-bit music, but this just won me over. Thanks man! Anyway, nice feel to it, sounds like it could go along with a knight traversing a large gauntlet only to find out that he has to climb a titanic tower to get what he needs. Anyway, as i've said before, keep it up!

Hades responds:

Really? I just love 8-bit. I feel as though I could write 8-bit music all of the time, because it just sounds so... nostalgic. And that really helps when trying to reach out to the listener, IMO. Thanks for the comment!
