I spent about four months on this piece. I started with research, then experimentation, afterwards I conceived a story and continued to compose it. The piece is meant for a video game setting.

Nicely done! I enjoyed the listen.
Some good points;
I enjoyed the transition from just orchestra to synths, as I could picture this song being used for the credits and a final end scene. You send a positive message with the use of the bells, without them, I may not have had the same enjoyable experience through the piece.
I really like your palette of sounds used, Each one fit the other harmoniously.

One thing that almost scared me away from listening all the way through it the strings in the introduction. They come in a bit too strong. If the programs you use allow you to use volume envelopes, take advantage of it in your future songs to smooth Intros and outros.
but when the song gets a rolling, you'll know it gets a rolling!

Look at what was done here and expand on it for future compositions. You have a blooming talent, take advantage of it. ;)
