this song was made in a couple of hours for ludum dare 29 (speed game development compo)... except I don't think I'll finish the game so it's probably just going to exist by itself.

it's a bit rushed because of the time constraints of the compo but meh... my brain is fried


I love the percussion and the funky synths. The space-y melodies offered an interesting contrast to the rather "down-to-earth" bass synths. I love the melodies around and after 1:30. Really has that genuine 80s feel...and reverb too! :D It loops flawlessly, and seems very fitting for a game otherwise as well. I'm not sure if you meant to do this or not, but that ominous melody instrument at :37 flits between roaring up front and fading to the back of the mix like crazy. Was it side-chained heavily, or was it a mixing error (I doubt it), or...am I not making any sense (that's very possible too)? It just seemed like something very bizarre was going on with that synth until around 1:20. Anyway, overall it's a very interesting, creative, and entertaining piece. Not my favorite of yours, but I'd love to hear it whilst playing a fitting video game! :) Keep up the great work, Johnfn! ;D

The thing at :37 definitely has a little bit of flanger on it, but I only hear the fading forward/back if I pay really close attention. It's probably a problem with how I listen to my tracks, which is only on headphones. I need some speakers...

Too bad I failed at making the game because that woulda been AWESOME! Just imagine.


Just awesome!! :D

Sound's game:y, and pretty cool! I'm not going to write a full review, as I'm sure you'll get good reviews from people soon (I'm busy with my own Ludum Dare project).
Wait, you don't think you'll finish the game? Why not make it for the Jam and not for the Compo if you don't have time?

I actually can't really hear that this is rushed (or is it because it's short?).

Anyhow, it loops well too (still percussion month ey?).
I like everything, all instruments especially!

Great job!

johnfn responds:

> rushed

I dunno I wanted to add more sections or something.

Yeah the game is pretty much hopeless. My energy levels have dropped to 0 and I just want to nap, so I don't think any more productivity is going to happen today. I don't have any more time because I have to go to work tomorrow :( Oh well, next time I suppose. Thanks for stopping by in the middle of ludum dare haha
