This is my soundtrack for Newgrounds' Video Game Music Challenge. I chose "Final Push" as my challenge because I wanted to see if I can make a soundtrack of that caliber and I think I succeeded.

I took the Undertale approach. I wanted a soundtrack that is melancholic, yet inspires hope.

I imagined a RPG- styled visual novel where the final enemy owns the souls that have made a pact with him, then eats them as the ones that have made the pact die. The character I have in mind(a female) and her friends train along their journey of character development and hardships. One of them had made a pact with the enemy to become stronger and then, realizing the risks, wants to get rid of the pact. They have to kill the enemy to get rid of the pact.

They prepare to fight the enemy. but the enemy proves to be too strong for them. Just as the enemy lunges at the heroine to take her soul, the friend that had made the pact jumps in front of her and dies instead. The heroine goes into a state of shock. All things seem lost now forever. But, somehow, the enemy stops, realizing his powers are weaker than before.

The friend's soul deep within the enemy doesn't let him use his powers, because the friend's soul convinced the other 999,999,999 souls to cooperate and suck the energy slowly, but surely. Ooops... The heroine, along with the remaining friends take advantage of the situation. This is when this soundtrack starts.

0:00 The dead friend's theme;

1:11 The serious theme. This plays when things are serious;

1:57 Again the dead friend's theme;

2:43 The dramatic, action-filled theme;

2:29 The memories of the heroine's journey and development;

3:55 Again the friend's theme;

5:00 The enemy is defeated;

5:08 The battle ends and the heroine reflects on her gains and losses, and mourns the friend's death.

Trivia: the two words in the soundtrack's title refer to the two characters that die: the friend(Farewell) and the enemy(Goodbye).

wow this is very amazing

TrandafirTeodora responds:

Thank you so much!

Wow, This is really good. My only suggestion is the "serious theme". For that, I would add a bit more bass, buildup, and suspense. other than that, this is really good!

Thank you very much!
