At the time this was composed, a couple people who had listened to my work available at the time said it sounded... videogame-y. I began to think, "If that's what I sound like unintentionally, what would I sound like if I tried to sound videogame-y?"
And so I cranked this out. I liked the tune so much I decided to extend the track by having the "retro" version cut into a more "updated" sound.
Ironically enough, I did the updated segment a long while after doing the first segment, so it truly is an update in a sense.
