Band Saga aims for Vita, 3DS ⊟

Whoaaaaa, this game looks neat. “Band Saga is a modern Action Roguelike where every level, enemy and item is generated by music. Furthermore, every melody and every sound is synthesized in real time as you play!”

It has a built-in FM sequencer that unlocks new sounds – the sounds of all the stuff you encounter in the game, like some kind of Yuzo Koshiro x Sound Shapes situation.

Stretch goals for the Kickstarter will allow a version of this cool looking game to come to Vita at $40,000, and 3DS at $100,000. And it’ll come to TGS next week, no matter what! If you’re in Tokyo, go check it out!

cecil-time said: "Mika" sounds like it belongs in a Studio Ghibli film. And melodically, it's one of the most interesting. Such a soothing tune. I'm curious! What was the inspiration behind it?

waltzforluma:

Thank you very much - I’m glad you like “Mika”! My two musical inspirations for this song were Claude Debussy and Joe Hisaishi. I borrowed a lot of structural ideas from Debussy, and the “Ghibli” sound was very deliberate - the song was loosely dedicated to a friend who loved Totoro.

That friend (my roommate at the time) adopted a kitten named Mika, who was very sweet and shy, and she wobbled back and forth uncertainly when she walked. After a few months, she was diagnosed with a terminal illness. Her health faded quickly - first, she couldn’t jump, then she couldn’t walk, then she couldn’t eat.

I took care of her for a weekend, syringe-feeding her and keeping her close by. I was really upset about the whole situation and did what I often do when I’m upset about something: I went to my piano. I tried to paint a musical portrait of Mika. The uncertainty of her wobbly walk, the sweetness of her personality, and the love we all felt for her… She was put to sleep a week later.

I sent the song to surasshu without intending for it to be a collaboration - I just wanted to express my sadness to a friend. He asked if it would be okay if he “hugged” my piano with a little bit of chiptune. I didn’t think it would work at all, but I let him anyway! “Mika” became the first song of The Black Box. It’s a very special collaboration and the way the chiptune and piano fit together is quite unusual - but that’s another story for another time. :)

I’ve heard from some people that “Mika” sounds joyful and I’m glad that the song came out that way! That’s the Mika that I want to remember.

great writeup by waltzforluma on the most gentle piece of The Black Box. I’m still really proud of the work we did on this!

"Strong in the Real Way"

Music & Lyrics: Rebecca Sugar

Instrumental Arrangement & Piano: Aivi & Surasshu

Vocals: Deedee Magno Hall, Zach Callison

Guitar: Grant “Stemage” Henry

Drums: Roger “Rekcahdam” Hicks

We loved arranging “Strong in the Real Way” - thank you Rebecca for being our “rock”! There are several people who helped bring this song to life. What you’re hearing is the result of Rebecca’s amazing songwriting, Grant’s blazing guitar playing, Roger’s fierce drum fills, and Deedee and Zach’s inspiring vocals! (I played the piano and synths.) Thank you everyone for your amazing performances!!

everybody’s performances are amazing as aivi said, but i’ll gush about my partner for a second here: aivi’s piano on this is amazing! she played in a disney style during pearl’s part, and totally switches it up to a rockin’ style on the steven part! it’s SO cool :D
