What a great year. 2008 was the rise of Flash games as we all know it. 2008 marked an important time where games were created and played in 2D, and many of them had some sort of wack premise. 2008 could be considered the year in which Indie Developers could really take off and create wacky premises and fun games we all played. But, if there is one thing I know more than the games themselves is the music.

So here we are. A piece dedicated to the 2008 era of music in Flash games. Made for a joke Portal mod titled "Portal Epic Edition". Not currently in the mod, but you can put it in there.

Also, I guess I'm back making music? Maybe? We'll see.

Solid intro, great mixing. Some people may think the drums are too loud but I like a strong percussion presence.

Catchy and engaging lead. It really does remind me of some oldschool newgrounds music in parts. I like the choice in instruments.

Nothing more to say except great job! I love it! :)

Reminds me very strongly of Super Meat Boy. IMO, as a celebration of the heyday of flash, what you have here is about as close as you can get without actually covering a song from back then.

I thought this came through quite well. Can't think of any way to make this any clearer.

The only thing I suggest doing is changing the submission from "song" to "loop", because of the way this piece ends.

Still, regarding the piece itself, I think you nailed it. 5 stars! :)

this is decent. it almost feels like a dimrain47 or paragonx9 song in some parts (although that may only be because of the familiar instrumentation). the mixing does feel somewhat "muted", which may be because it lacks high end. compositionally, it could be better, especially because this song doesn't have defined "sections", but instead simply goes on and on. nontheless, you did a great job at evoking the golden age of flash games!

I like the message you provided alongside the song, it's cool that this song has meaning to you!
