Reminiscent of the barren, lonely and often spooky isolation an desolation of both the locations and music of the Metroid Prime games. It gave me chills... Heh, a pun on the name of the song... >_> But really, this is incredible and I love the slow, unsettling mysteriousness of it. I'm not sure if you did this in a certain key, but if you did, it can't get more perfect than this. Can't spot keys and all that, so sorry if I'm being a bit ignorant - I appreciate creativity in music (and this piece brings it), but I can only really "visualize" my own melodies and such, as I lack the abilities to read/write music, and I won't even go into my keyboard/guitar "skill level".
Anyway, enough of that tangent. More comments! At 1:26-27, that 8-bit-ish sytnth kicks in. I'm not sure if you're familiar with the Game Boy Advance series "Boktai" (if you're one of us lucky few to have played even just one of the games, you're a blessed soul), but the second half of the song kinda instantly make me think of the way the music in said games plays out, what with all the other instruments in the background.
Very well done. I've had this looping for about 20 minutes now, so clearly this is a winner, haha. Rating 5/5 And giving 5/5 stars.
Woooooow man, thank YOU! Haha, i LOVE the music in the metroid prime games. Although I wasn't directly influenced when I made this, maybe it had been slowly been cooking and somehow boiled down to this.
Nope I didnt place it in a certain key, but it certanley is in one^^ Cant say what key right now though...
Yeah, I actually have the same problem, since i cant write/read sheetmusic in such a pace that it benefits my workflow. So what happens is that I have this idea, try to make it as closley as I can to that in a midi program or on a guitar, but since I have to "listen for the melody" rather than just write it down from the top of my head, it never is quite as I pictured it. But this song really came out nice anyway!
Nope! I have not played Boktai, but I have heard of it and now I certanly will try to get my hands on it, in some form.
And that, that you had this looping for 20 minutes, it's just wow. I'm so happy that you liked it. Thanks for listening! I have no idea when il be making more, but check back in maybe a couple of months and there'l be something new.. Maybe.
Thanks for the review!
Good video game song ! Keep up the work !
Thank you, I will!
This has that very old school feel to it. I like. Reminds me of the original pokemon games. The dark dreary vibe fits the tone of a frozen cave very well. Bringing forth feelings of not only loneliness but the shivering cold. Now the only thing you need is a happy triumphant song after you finally get out of that cave and back into the warm sunlight and green fields to balance it all out.
Thanks! Yeah that feeling of coldnes, the sounds of freezing. Now that I think about it I was kinda inspierd by Metroid Prime's snow level. Those sparkly sounds, kinda like snowflakes^^
Yes, will do! But first a fast paced bossbattle inside the frozen cave! :D
And thxx for the reviews!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
