Nope, not seen this. No idea. Not here…
Ammnuughhhhhh. Too predictable. I have noticed and am here LOL
At the time, Gyruss (the 1983 console game) was far and away the best music. It was pats of Bach’s Toccata (and Fugue in G min). I have a “Plugged-in Bach” EP of my own which includes that if you are eager enough. I suggested “Ori and the Will of the Wisps” for the kids as it is not only beautiful to look at but has a rather nice score. So much better than Crash Bandicoot which they play more but is just noise on both fronts (what most people want tho I know).
I was accused of sounding Chiptune as an insult, before it was “cool”. Now it is cool, the Chip people seem to find me equally unpalatable. Probably because I don’t follow their rules. To me, it is such a funny form as it was a result of major limitations that the better composers were constantly pushing - to improve the music they could deliver. And suddenly people want to make it that bad again. At least Chiptune mostly tries to use melodies. That is a win over most of EDM/Pop/Rap and even Rock.
@mattboa Your second track is really rather cool. A Folk dance or similar. That is a nice idea. (see below)
From me: I made this to show I can do chip. It starts with the rigid rules of a Z-80 and then grows with each section to cover most of the major advancements over time (not I am not pedantic about SID/Atari sounds so these are mine made in the mix).
This is the first full game I got to score for someone else. It was part of a Game Jam and had to be done fast. I finished early and made all the sfx too. We won pretty solidly.
I made several more games with this Dev and put them all into an Album. I think I got better with each as I wanted to expand the palette over what normal micro-Devs use. Official link in the vid info above (as I can’t link to my site from here grrr pita).
Matt as a matter of interest (or not as this is not game music) this is where I took the ideas of Greek Folk dance to use as contrast in a re-imagined story for Medusa the Gorgon as a pretty sociable girl compared to the monster she became (aah vanity).
