I love the hihat so much, also incredimuch dissonance wich does the track good for the atmosphere.
I particular love the 01:15 transition into melody, with the thumps in the background.
The dissonance, need to mention it again, makes this track extremely tragic as if the whole world is on the shoulders of the 'computers, forces it to existential levels.
The aim 'romantic does elude me a bit but i suppose thats because i am not familiar with the game it was made for.
(id like to hear something straightforward 8bit from you sometime btw, like a soft true classical piece)
