Have you ever experienced that one of your pixels died? If you will ever have a funeral for your pixels feel free to use this song!

This is the first song I made in MilkyTracker and served just as a test, a practice but I found it now and thought it's good enough to upload. It just misses an end... but maybe it's better like that, because the end of your beloved pixel came sudden as well?

Thanks for listening :P


20 seconds in, it was on my favs list. This is amazing stuff! I'm not really one for 8-bit, but this is really good. It feels like I'm in an 80's game, wandering through a mountain, snow impairing my vision, stumbling through miles of icy terrain. When night falls, I slip into a dark cave to rest. My vision starts going blurry. I keel onto my kneels and fall asleep instantly. I dream that my soul is torn out of my body, and it goes down the cave, where it stops in front of a huge door with a bull's skull on it. I wake up, and push myself off the hard stone floor. Cautiously, I put my foot out and step into the foreboding darkness.

^ Actually, that's from a novel I'm writing. But in my opinion, it fits the song well! Or... the song fits it well.. or... something!

Hm... Strangely that reminded me of...

...lavender town. Damn you're good.

The instruments were indeed pretty disturbing, in a good way and held my attention throughout the whole song. Anyway the review:

The intro started out well, with just the one instrument and shortly after the others started to kick in and the song still managed to stay calm, yet impressive.

At the end, when all of the instruments/melodies were playing at the same time, it seemed wrong and right at the same time and I loved it. Too bad it ended WAAAY too abruptly. Really -2 for that, because otherwise it was perfect. I really hope this will be remade/revised by you, because this has great potential.

Keep it up and sorry for the late review.

8/10, 4/5, faved.
