Well, it's been some time since I last made a chiptune. Gotta say though, I'm getting good with the chip sounds. But listen for yourselves.

I guess it could be a dungeon theme or a villain theme. Maybe even a stage theme for an action/adventure game or a side-scroller.

So... I haven't been very creative lately but I managed to finish at least one song aside from a commission I did. And that song was more of a practice than anything. I was trying out some new modes and scales and discovered harmonic minor. So... I made a desert theme. There you go. :)


Walking Dunes
To be honest, I'm not quite satisfied with how this song turned out. There's something that still bothers me about it but I don't know what it is. Might be the loop. Might be that I decided against adding choirs. Might be the strings. I dunno. Might rework it in the future.

These are awesome :D kind of a sucker for the more "retro" style (love byte buster soo much!) All of your stuff is pretty well done, keep it up :) . Also really digging "Malicious Heart" and "Forest Sanctuary" quite a bit.


lol you're right about the "Resume Fame?" track though, it does remind me of banjo-kazooie quite a bit :3

Thank you very much. I always love to hear that people enjoy my work. And yes, "Resume Game" is actually based on the Pause theme from Banjo & Kazooie, which is why it sounds so similar. Grant Kirkhope is one of my favourite composers and I love his work. I actually wanted to pay homage to him with that song. ^-^

It's time for some more examples of what I can do when I'm promised some money in return! That's right folks, these two songs here are commissions made for a game by @nio kasgami. Now even with proper album cover and all. :3


Alone OST - "Safe Room Lullaby"


This song plays in certain safe areas where you're supposed to save your progress. Will it require a typewriter and ink ribbons? I don't know. I'm just the composer. Anyway, I decided to mainly use "light" instruments in this one. Harp, music box, piano, flute. Add in some choir and you've got yourself a nice lullaby-esque theme.


Alone OST - "Half Rest in Piece ~ Theme of the Zomposer"


Yes, I know, the pun in the song's title is terrible (that is, if you even get that it's a pun in the first place...) but I couldn't think of a more fitting name for this track. This is the character theme of the Zomposer - a character that's actually based on yours truly. Yes, I'm going to make a cameo in this game and this is gonna be my theme. Gotta say, I consider this one of my best works so far. To make it sound less serious (yes, this song is still in a minor key) I used a technique I call "Kirkhope-izing". What that is, is taking a song and apply the typical Grant Kirkhope features to it like the tuba and marimba in my case. Worked out quite nicely and resulted in a very catchy tune. ^-^

Golly, I sure haven't updated this topic in ages! So I suppose I should do that now before I neglect this thread completely. XD


"I Hope You Brought Your Lantern"


Not too long ago I bought what I believe to be the best retro instrument collection out there, Super Audio Cart and I've been experimenting with it a little. This somewhat short dungeon theme is the first song I composed using those new retro sounds. And I gotta say, they don't disappoint! And yes, all my retro themes made with this are gonna have extravagant names like this one does. :)


I'm also planning on releasing a retro music pack complete with town, battle, dungeon and various other themes. I still have to decide whether to make it free or not - I'll let that depend on my financial situation when everything's done. :)

After a "basic" retro dungeon theme, I now present you the first theme of my retro dungeon theme collection that I am currently working on. What kind of collection will it be? It'll contain a variety of different-themed dungeon/temple songs for all your RPG and adventure needs. And we're starting off the show with a fire temple theme (which could also be used for a desert-themed area)!




I have to say, I really love the sound of harmonic minor. Your go-to scale if you want something to sound like a desert etc.


I'm quite proud of this one. Took me some time of finish but I'm satisfied with the result. I hope you will be too. ^-^

First Ten Minutes of my Caretaker inspired game

Finally, I got a good Gmail message [from smg5urded]
"This game does look a bit plain, but, I'm sure this does not destroy the experience as a whole. Monsters fit your style of game-play, mapping looks crude but I'm sure you can make it better if you do a remake of Forgotten Eclipse"
Going to start a new project today. OMG, it will be on RPGMaker MV. :D

This is Alchemy pack.
I decided to add more witch elements.

Now we have wooden props, candles, pots, and potion bottles.
We also want to add herbs, kettles, fireplaces, etc.
