nine inch nails music in the beginning made me happy. i love that song.
otherwise, random, but pretty funny.
the voices were pretty much the funniest part, so good job.
...liked it. the animation was good..aside from the characters being stickfigures. I liked the "style" and although it didn't have any voices the background music was pretty O.K. I found some parts of it funny, but it was good because of the fighting.
That was real fun...
I liked the pacing of the game, and the fact that the pictures interacted with the pumpkins made the game better. The only real issue I had was that the background pictures weren't very Halloweeny, and maybe if they weren't day-time pictures of important things the game would have a more spooky feel to it.
Godzilla shooting pumpkins at kim jong il was funny.
Really fun game.
Game: "I would move if I were you."
Me: HUH? *pauses*
well it was funny to me :(
I was just having fun and such, and the game ends. Not even close to buying the best stuff....but anyways, no save feature = bad especially in a game like this.
Still, nice game, fighting was fun and char. creation was cool. What I saw of the armor system was nice too.
Ok well I'm listening to this on shitty speakers so I apologize for that right away. I'm in a mood for some real noisy kinda ambient stuff right now too, so that's probably influencing my opinion of this big time. So feel free to just ignore everything I say.
The manipulated thump thing was pretty excellent. The rest was real simple, sorta generic. As I'm sure you're aware, there's not much here so there's not much to comment on. It's definitely on the ambient side of ambient. Space-y more than scary, I think. Otherwordly-like. I'm mostly just left curious about what the more complex version of this sounded like.
Anyways, I guess the worst thing I can say about it is that it's sorta workmanlike, nothing too interesting but certainly nothing terrible. Sorry for the shitty review, it's late. Can't think of much I'd like to hear changed that wouldn't remove it from the ambient category, and I don't want to demand you switch genres or anything. Drop me a line if you do something a bit less ambient and I'll try to come up with a not shit review.
Until then, keep it up.
Thanks, I havent really made a track like this in awhile I should because I think I could do a hell of a lot better, Ill try to work on the complexity.
pretty moody experimentation going on
Alright, by the nature of this thing it's a bit hard to review I think. I mean, you're just improvising it all right? So it is what it is. Certainly not much of a song as is, but I think there's some stuff here that you could flesh out or expand on so I'll focus on those positives.
First off, I think for a 'random song' there are some surprisingly good transitions and different parts. Certainly a few clumsy shifts/sections, but that's all part of the process I'm sure. The shifts from the moody plucking to the major sounding chords back to more minor intervals were certainly in good taste; I think you should look at those sort of parts if you think about fleshing any of this out. Some parts (like the one at around 3:40ish) also stand out on their own, and could be good. The more cheerful strumming afterward is a pretty good resolution too, if you played with it.
So yeah, as hard to listen to it as it is in this form, there are certainly more than a few good ideas (more than I touched on, at least) in here, that you could really turn into a song with some work. I'd forget about some sections (like from about 5:10 on), but there are certainly good ideas here, which is very impressive for 'improvised randomness.'
It's pretty neat, and do let me know if you turn any of this into a more complete song, 'cos I'd love to check it out. And I really apologize for how long it's taken me to review back! Keep it up.
Thanks for the great review. I'll see if I can do anything to improve on this and make at least a half-assed song out of it. I'm surprised you were patient enough to listen to the whole thing, as I talked to Courtney the entire time I played it, and still got pretty bored. No worries, it's all good.
My apologies for not making the song more interesting, as well as not responding sooner.
Not a lot to say about this one. Sounds go well together, some really neat work on the different synths. Percussion is pretty much exactly how you'd expect it to be after listening to the intro, doesn't really surprise anywhere. Not a whole lot of progression throughout, not a whole lot of emotion...I dunno, you're not taking any risks here, so it is what it is.
If you're stuck, I'd consider changing up some parts, getting away from the ambient frame of mind, figuring out something that's surprising but fits. Add some emotion, add some uncertainty, make it less pristine. Of course, it's just an opinion, and if you're not going for that at all, ignore me.
It's always nice to get some opinions and constructive comments on a track, but yeah, I wasn't really going for anything special, just a really simple chillout track.
