I self-destructively decided to help make yet another video game in three days for Ludum Dare 46. We made Will of the Wisp, a metroidvania-platformer about a dryad hero's quest to save their home.

You wake up.

Rate the game on Ludum Dare: https://ldjam.com/events/ludum-dare/46/will-of-the-wisp

Oooo...very moody and atmospheric. I love it when the strings start bleeding into the texture at around :40, and the furtive piano solo later on is just haunting. You've completely unearthed my soul in 2 minutes flat, Miyo. The steady rhythm of the arpeggios and the swelling atmosphere around it is the perfect embodiment of a transient state of tranquility. Keep up the good work!

Also, that's a straight-up badass team you got there. I need to check out this game too. ^_^

i think out of all of your Will Of The Wisp songs, this one is the most enveloping. i haven't been able to play the game yet but with this song alone i already feel as if i'm residing in a completely different reality. the strings are hauntingly broken, and the piano, because of its heavy pace and occasional stumbles, sounds almost mournful. when the glockenspiel enters in reverse, i feel suspended permanently in a moment preceding something unforgettable.

you've managed to capture a rare emotion in this one, a wandering, lonely, sullen feeling that i've only found in soundtracks like Hyper Light Drifter. really great work :')

Miyolophone responds:

thank you star!! this piece was the first one i made, so maybe it got the benefit of my untempered emotional energy before the exhaustion set in :')
