Second of two quick loops with the same tune done for the Wholesome Jam, which began 2 October and ended 4 October. Yes, you read that right, second: I actually penned the softer version of this loop first, in mere minutes as there was much less instrumentation. That one is now on the sidebar, or below if you're on mobile.

Actually recording the MIDI parts for this piece took much longer, as this had more instruments than the first iteration of the loop.

The theme was "don't give up" and my team and I brainstormed and came up with an idea resembling a kimodameshi, or a test of courage that is carried out in the summer in Japan. Something like this would be more suited to Halloween on our end, so we went with a top-down kimodameshi-like game with a remote resemblance to Ghosts and Goblins.

Since this was a quick loop and we had two days to come up with a fully functional game, what mattered was the music working in the game. Like with the title theme, I threw all plugin choices out of the window and opted for FL defaults wherever possible.

Nice. It has a bit of an Addams Family Vibe to it.

congrats on the Frontpage ^_^
sounds great

Troisnyx responds:

Sincerely, your review was how I found out this thing got FP'ed. 😮 Thank you; glad you enjoyed it!

Can't wait to see the game. What do you use for the orchestral sounds?

Troisnyx responds:

Ordinarily I would use a combination of soundfonts, Versilian Studios Chamber Orchestra 2 and BBC Symphony Orchestra Discover.

Not here, I didn't. I used Flex, a default plugin in FL Studio 20.

By the way, the link to the game's in the description -- it directs you to itch.io, as that's where the game jam was hosted, and I'm the only member of the team that made this short game who is even on Newgrounds to begin with.

a true inspiration.

Troisnyx responds:

That is incredibly high praise. 😮❤️ Thank you.

Catchy tune!
I imagine it being used in a spooky point-and-click adventure game.

Troisnyx responds:

That would be super cool.
Incidentally, this is being used in a spooky game in the very, very near future: a top-down obstacle course that gets faster and faster the further we progress. ^_^
