wow you should have been the composer for the original game! or if they make a new game they should hire you for most of the music, cause this is chipzel style!
I hope serponge didn't give up on the level xD
Woah that's really kind of you to say! :D Thanks so much! I feel like this year I've improved a lot with making chiptune stuff like this (probably thanks to Serponge's request), so your review means a lot to me c:
And Serponge mentioned he lost his vision on the level that this was suppose to be in, but he might be working on something else for it! ;D
I wish there was a sixth star, then they could make a hexagon(and on)!
I found the melody a bit annoying after the 2 minute mark, but it was still amazingly catchy and I love it!
Thanks a bunch! :O And thanks for the favorite as well!
Yes, it's definitely not easy to make the song go on for so long with new melodies and a similar mood - normally stuff like this will have some sort of break in the middle, but not here! :D
This is a really neat song! Can you describe what you mean by creating the sounds with your own software? Sounds pretty interesting. Great job with the track as well
Thank you dude! :D
I'll elaborate on that for sure! I made a lot of the main sounds with a program I made in Flash, called Dubnia Studio. I saved the loops I created in Dubnia, and loaded them into FL Studio (which is way more powerful for making music haha).
Right before I made Hexagon and On, I made a plugin for Dubnia Studio that creates these really GameBoy/NES-sounding noisy square wave effects. I think the first minute is basically all with that plugin, plus a kick drum haha. So that's really the extent of it.
Recently, I converted the plugin to a true VST, so I can use it directly in FL Studio! Here's a little demonstration I made of the VST itself: https://streamable.com/3m2hd
I'm really interested in making more stuff like this. Audio programming is complex and fun to experiment with - I think there's a lot for me to explore.
I don't have a good video of Dubnia Studio itself unfortunately. It's just a side-project I started for me to have a really easy framework to make sounds with. But I guess here's a random gif of me implementing a scalable window - it shows some of its features in the process: https://i.imgur.com/ZYj7ZL4.gif
Let me know if you have any other questions about it! :) Thanks again!
Damn dude this is amazing chip-stuff!
Hey thanks so much Alkali!
I rarely give 5 stars, but I felt like I had to. This is completely breathtaking! It would fit right into one of the old Atari games, or into some 8-bit styled animation. Keep making great music!
- Lumpy o)
Well thanks a bunch Lumpy, that was a really nice review! :D
I'd love to see this track in epic pixel animations and stuff, that'd be super cool! O___O
