OTG = "Off The Grid"; I drew all the notes and MIDI data in my software without using the grid snap feature.


Bear in mind: This is a work-in-progress submission, not the final piece.


This is a fleshed out version of a theme I've been working on that I plan on incorporating elements of into my final submission for the Newgrounds Video Game Music Challenge, namely the one labeled, "Final Push". This theme is for the character in my fake game named "Melanie".


Melanie is a kind and supportive person who lives with Lonnie as his closest, and initially only, friend; Her theme song is a song she sung for many years whenever she felt lonely, to remind her of the comfort of her parents.


Here's some background on the game concept I came up with:


In the peaceful small town of Timberwood, a timid boy named Lonnie wakes up one day to find his roommate and only friend is missing. He can’t find her anywhere in town, which also seems to be strangely empty. After looking around town, he heads back to his house and finds a note on the door he didn’t see before with the phrase, “Help me!” written on it, in blood. Startled, Lonnie begins to panic. Then he notices something on the back of the note, with unusual and eerie lettering saying “If you want to see your friend again, Come find me… - Lord Draco”. And so begins Lonnie’s adventure to find those missing from his town, and especially, his childhood friend, Melanie. Being a shy boy who doesn’t speak well with others, Lonnie will have to overcome many trials and fears, meeting enemies as well as future companions. How will he do?


Originally, I intended there to be lyrics and vocals in this theme, but due to time constraints with the person involved I was unable to include them.


I hope you enjoy! There will be more to come. :)
