Anytown, RPG

The second Pixel Day ever has finally rolled around, and this is my contribution to the retro goodness!

If you've ever played an RPG in your life, you've visited your share of them. You know, those ridiculously happy-go-lucky little towns where nothing ever goes wrong. It's always sunny, the birds never stop singing, and all the people who live there smile and recite their few lines of NPC dialogue with gusto.


And yet, for some reason, that rampant cheerfulness is oddly contagious. The music in the background makes you smile, even if only a handful of minutes ago you were pissed off at everyone and everything in the world. It diffuses angst, makes the corners of your mouth twitch, and can even evoke a chuckle at just how silly those cheeky little townies are.

I mean seriously, what is up with that?

But hey, scowling at the world takes way too much effort anyway. Maintaining the fires of inner rage is, quite simply, exhausting. Might as well just give in, smile, and enjoy the ride!

So yeah, in a nutshell that's what this track is all about. Video games are supposed to be fun, after all. Why not have a little?

I like the cute mood and progression. Some of the synths sound a bit harsh in my headphones. I might suggest taking a bit more treble off of the lead. Other than that, it's really flowy and melodic, and the loop is smooth. Good use of panning, and I liked the drum instruments a lot. Definitely fitting for a videogame. :)

ChronoNomad responds:

Yeah, there's a bit too much harshness in the higher ranges, but it's nice to know that the mood is conveyed well and the progression is appreciated. Smooth Loops Я Us! And I'm still waiting for someone to use it in a game...

Thanks again for a very nice little review! ^__^

WIsh my songs were dope like this one...remember if you like it then it's good..now I personally like it...keep it up.

ChronoNomad responds:

Just a happy little Chiptune, but I'm glad you like it! Thanks for the feedback.

Music, just like everything else, is completely subjective. There will always be folks that don't like a particular genre or track, but hopefully more who do. The best thing to do is just make the music that YOU want to make! Anything else is a bonus.

Unless you're doing it professionally for a client. Then make what they want.

I meant to give this a five rating, but Newgrounds glitched. Anyway, have all the love for this cool track. Keep up the awesome. :)

ChronoNomad responds:

Naughty old Newgrounds, being all glitchy like that...

But hey, thanks a bunch for coming back and dropping a five-star rating on it, V! Very much appreciated, and I'm glad that you dig the track. Consider the awesome kept up. (;

This song is so cheerful it should be played at funerals to make people feel better.
All jokes aside, I really like it. Very pleasing to hear, makes you never want to leave that RPG town. Good job, really :D

ChronoNomad responds:

Heh, thanks a bunch, mapsynth! I'll be sure to put the 'fun' back in funeral with it. ^__~

I really appreciate that you took the time to leave a review and let me know that you really like the track! Kick back, relax a spell, and enjoy everything those happy little burgs have to offer. At least until you decide to get back to world exploration and dungeon crawling, anyway.

Johnfn mentioned my complaints in the song, but overall I love the instruments here. This is a fun cute melody. I loveit.

ChronoNomad responds:

Thanks for the quick review, RF! Fun and cute works for me, and was basically what I was going for. It's true that another lead taking over the main melody wouldn't have been a bad idea, but at least you really like the instrument choices. I personally felt like they sounded quite nice together. Hope you had a great Pixel Day!
