That was very well done, and an interesting storyline. It was nicely animated and sound was decent.
Except for the black creatures voice. It sounded kind of muffled (I'm sure slightly intentional) but was a bit to low and a little hard to hear at times. You should work on that for the next part.
Which I look forward to seeing! Good job.
That game was superb. Truly. The gameplay and story was amazingly well thought up of and, later on in the story, you were actually required to be strategic! Especially against the Paladin.. damn he was hard! The Baron was a piece of cake compared to him. And then the extra level...
Which reminds me. I didn't play the game before you made all those updates, so I'm not exactly sure how "slow"battles were previously, but the battles in the Extra Area are kinda slow. The blue circle slowly fills up. I'm not sure if you forgot to fix this or it was purposely done (mind you, I actually only played the "Special Training" level there before coming to write this review, so I'm not sure if the others are fixed or not). It was kind of annoying waiting for it to tinker along.
Other than that everything was good! Sound was good, visual effects, etc. Good work! I'm hopin' for the rest of the game soon!
This song was very, very nice! You captured the essence of sadness very well in this piece. This is something you might expect to hear in a movie where someone dies and it flashes back to important moments in that person's life, if you understood that at all. Fav'd.
And I did find the strings to be decent. Unfortunately I don't got any idea of any free one's. Just try fiddling around with the EQ and the string you like most until you get a sound you like.
I suggest adding just a bit more reverb to the piano.
I can't even tell you how many times I've been told that same exact thing! Not that is is bad to hear, but this is apparently a very cinematic song, lol. Actually, I'm glad to hear it, as I hope to one day score for film. :)
My EQ skill's are lacking, I must admit. I know how to tweak reverb, but that's about it. I find it funny that the piano could use more reverb, as it had too much the first time I posted it. xD
Thanks for the review!
I like it
It's fun, upbeat, nice rhythm. The tempo's pretty fast, but I think the upbeatness of the sounds go nicely at that pace. Although beginning was hard to bear. It was just... Way too loud. Hard on the ears. Trim that down a little and it'd be pretty good.
Good job and keep it up!
i have not very many up beat songs i am keeping it the way it is :)
It felt very mysterious and dark, definitely a nice touch to it. Now for my suggestions...
The strings (the basslien one's) just seems to cut off before they should and then continue on. It kind of sounds weird. Although that may have been intentional. Maybe you should try and make it flow a little better from note to note?
At 1:04 and 1:11 there were those chimes or bells, whatever they were. A good idea but I suggest making them less... Hard and loud sounding so they can somewhat blend with the rest of the song. I dunno, might sounds better.
Those are my suggestions to make it better. Other than that I really enjoyed the song! I liked the end and how it felt so very dark and climactic.
Keep it up!
I tried to make it resemble the part in the game when you are walking through the black and white castle.
Hmm...I'll try that next time I use strings for bass
the bells were an idea that I thought could bring in the intro to the actual climax...it was hard to make them not sound too loud, but not too soft either.
Thanks for the review!
