Nice song. What's it about. Sounds a bit dark, but not scary, because of the higher notes that sound happy. Makes me think you're underground and hear segments from what's above ground. The higher notes you hear are parts of the song Abyss right. Come to think of it; that's a bit of a scary title for a song that's that relaxed and happy. You made this song for the game by Terrat Nuh right? I read something like that on Patreon. Makes me wonder what the game is about.

That's an imaginative take on the music! I'm happy that you are able to imagine a world with just the music and title alone. The dark parts of the song signify the danger of Undertown and the light parts represent the main character's hopeful drive to persevere!

And yes, the melody of Undertown shares a subtle leitmotif from Abyss! I'm shocked you found that! I believe Undertown is the area right next to the abyss area, so I wanted to make it feel like you're venturing out into unknown territory.

I think Terrat Nuh is his nickname or screen name. His real name is Hunter Hatfield. I don't know much about the game besides the bare minimum. "13" is a metroidvania game with SNES-style visuals that takes place in the caves of an alien planet. The game is very early in development right now; so early that I'm delightfully surprised I'm even making music this early on.

Thank you for the 5 stars too! ^_^

Pretty good. Will say the “beep... beep” part doesn’t really fit with the rest of the song. Everything else is relatively ambient and I love it.
