It has an early 2000's pc game feel, which is a great thing. I am simply astounded by your emotionally driven work here and the subtle ambiance is not only nostalgic but calming in its own way.

You definitely deserve the views, downloads and front page spot that is to come soon! I promise I'll get it done as soon as the next rotation comes up.

Thanks a lot for the kind words, Bosa! Your review just made my day :) I'm so glad you liked the song!

I just realized I have 13k views and over a thousand downloads. How'd I manage that without the front page? Awesome!

Thanks in advance for the front page, and thanks again for the review!

A fine story. I feel like I am playing an old Lucasarts adventure game like the ones I played when I was a kid. There is something charming about GM that brings out the nostalgia.

I love your work. You are truly one of my favourite artists.

EvilRaccoon responds:

Thanks Bosa! :D <3

Awesome track! It really has an emotional feel to it -- like something you would hear in a TV drama. I could also hear it in a story-driven J-RPG like you mentioned in your author comments. The abrupt end is actually a nice touch and completes the song perfectly.

Very good work on this one! 5/5

larrynachos responds:

Thank you so much for the review, Bosa! It makes me really happy that you like this song! I made the abrupt end because it was supposed to be able to loop, but it still sounds really awesome without looping! I would have liked to hear your opinion on the percussion though. Does it sound out of place? I'm still kind of worried that it might throw off the overall mood for some people.

Thanks again for the review! Your approval means a great deal to me :)

I hear this more as music for the opening sequence of a dramatic TV series. The action sequence is really good, but when the piano came in at the end it was like icing on the cake for me. You have done everything right with this piece, and I can think of nothing wrong with it.

Awesome work, my good man!

OmegaP responds:

That would be very awesome if I could use this for a tv show! never really thought about it that way. Thank you for the kind remarks!

When the guitar came in at 1:20 is what really did it for me. This is such a great piece. I picture this being used in a TV drama or reflective commercial.

IglicaV responds:

Thank you very much! :D

The instrumentation in this piece is so well emphasized that I am amazed at how great it sounds. You have gone with almost a comedic feel with this one.

Yet another splendid piece by one of my favorite composers. Please produce more!

Deemo-R responds:

Glad you like it! I kind of settled on something more lighthearted after hearing a description of the general scene it would be accompanying. It was a really good opportunity to play with some layering I haven't tried before, as well as an excuse to use a celesta! :)

Will definitely keep working on more! :D

I love your classical work. It is always so simple, yet well refined. This particular piece will work well in a game I think. Even though it is somewhat repetitive, it wouldn't be too noticeable in-game. It reminds me of Donkey Kong 64 or King's Quest which is a nostalgic plus for me.

I hope to hear more from you.

Deemo-R responds:

Thanks Bosa! I've always really looked up to your orchestral work as a source of inspiration, so it means a ton that you feel that way! I'm really hoping to do some more work with orchestration in the future, because there's just so many things you can achieve with it that I have yet to realize. Both DK64 and King's Quest were part of my childhood collection, so I'm sure they had their subtle influences working in my brain as I was writing. :)

(Speaking of King's Quest, I'm excited for the upcoming one!)

I love this -- so peaceful and tranquil, as the name suggests. I could listen to this all day.

AshleyAlyse responds:

Thank you, Jon. :) Always lovely hearing from you. <3

I cannot make a score in one night (unless it is 30 seconds), but not everyone has the complicated resources as I. It is interesting that you submitted this here; I'm sure there are many Newgrounders who need some motivational music to perk them up.

This song does bring me back to the Wii days, must be said.

Step responds:

Hey Bosa!

Hahaha there is a sort of Wii vibe to some of the melodies here. That's a really interesting observation.

You know, I honestly didn't think I could finish this in one night either. I compose very slowly. For instance, my more recent track "Chompy" was a last-minute custom soundtrack for a game here on Newgrounds with the same name, and it took me around four days to finish (mind you, I was working on it for a sizeable amount of hours each day). On top of that, it was only 2 minutes and a half long! Making this score in one night is still crazy for me, regardless of how much copypasta and rushed sections there are.

Thanks for dropping by!

You win.

PirateCrab responds:

Wait, where's your piece gone? Please tell me you didn't take it off, I was really hoping for a strong challenge :(

The best looking composer online.
