"If you weren't such a filthy-looking oaf, they would not be so suspicious of us!"

This song was written by me with Noteworthy Composer and SNES GSS. GSS is a program used to compose music for Super Nintendo games. It's tedious, but the severe limitations make it an interesting process. I think it's kinda cool having music that could literally be loaded onto a cartridge and played with the console I grew up playing. I wish I could have been a video game composer during the 90s, but this will have to do. Crystal Crusade II isn't a real game. Just a made up RPG that I'm writing a soundtrack for. Someday, eh.

As always, you are free to download and use this track however you like. Thanks for listening.

f you'd like to make your own SNES music, you can do so with a free program called "SNES GSS", and a bit of patience.

Initially, I was thinking about the Castle/Fortress theme for Yoshi's Island, but as the song continued, it felt like I was also being reminded of something else. I just can't pinpoint it. The beginning of the Puppet Master theme, perhaps? In a vain attempt to look up possible songs I might be thinking of, I found myself listening to the theme of Killer Klowns From Outer Space and watching a video about why an eagle-owl is a dangerous pet.

Is it safe to assume the Baron of this castle is a well-known teller of tall tales? Does his fight have you riding half-horses and flying cannonballs? There's a great movie about those stories, but I don't particularly know of a game that properly referenced them. A missed opportunity, if they haven't.

Now, if you would be so kind as to point my Smash main in the direction of DK Island. Duck Hunt and I have some avenging to do in your honour (and honor), Sir Brent "The Bertn" Bunn of year 1991.

Bertn1991 responds:

Ah yes, the Fortress theme for Yoshi's Island / the Song of Storms from Ocarina of Time. I think Koji Kondo plagiarized himself.

Also, it's funny you should mention the Baron of the castle, since the original title for the song was Baron Vongor. When I was little I played pretend with my cousin. We'd have these big fantasy adventures (LARPing before LARPing was a thing) and Vongor was a character. He was basically the big bad and probably not very good at telling stories.

Also also, Baron Munchhausen is one of my favorite movies ever. Probably why I was attracted to the name.

I will honor your wishes. Duck Hunt is S-tier in my book. Dogspeed, sir.

Thanks for listening <3
