If you have a working engine, even a very short demo or a debug room would be neat to see. Then again, I likely wouldn't be able to play it because of my lack of a computer, so take what I think with a grain of salt. -w-

Yeah, I stated in the main post that one should be done within the next 2 months.

I think that the music's actually pretty awesome, but it needs some kind of louder part to it, where the tension gets released. At the moment the tension keeps building up, until it eventually gets too repetitive and loses the build up. I liked it while the tension was building up though!

Yeah, I'm gonna add in an epic part soon. That was kind of a test theme I guess. After uploading it I've edited it a little for it to sound even tenser and even more dramatic.

Honestly, the music sounds like a track out of some fast-paced chase in my opinion, but it seems like it would fit in for a demon just fine.
I was kid of left hanging at around from the 30 second mark onward, because it gets a bit repetitive from that point on.
Although I'm sure this is just an early version, and that the final will have large quantities of buildup and a huge climax.
The organ sets the tone very well for a shrine, while the background strings keep it a bit 'demonic', in addition to the percussion, which keeps the song at a fast pace all the way through.
Looking forward to more!

While I know it on a basic level, I'm obviously not fluent, but I have people I know who are very fluent in both so they're planning to translate it for us.
This is late, I know....

If that's the case, have them help you with any Japanese that you're going to put up publicly.
If it were me, I wouldn't put it up before the Japanese - translated version at all.

Music- Sounds fine to me, If only a bit repetitive, and slightly shallow...

Art- I can't really judge, because you( or who ever is drawing) have your own style, but the characters faces look... a bit long. Just a observation.
Then again, that might just be my screen...


Anyways.... you guys are doing a good job!
Keep at it! :)

critiques on the music, let's go

while it was said that it is very repetitive, it was still pretty cool when it wasnt getting annoying. i also suggest adding a crash after the intro. it would also be very cool to add main part because this really is just the background part for music.

Alright so I'm assuming your music was made in either the midi format or musicxml; is that the case? If so can you give me the original file? I'd like to take a closer look at it with all the tracks and such visible, if you don't mind. If it wasn't made in midi or musicxml can you see if you can export it to either of those formats?

I remade the track, but I'm sure it may need some more edits before it's final. I shortened the buildup, added the crash, and added a release as well.

Yeah, I need to work on head shapes a little bit.

Thanks for all feedback, guys!

Now I voted for full orchestra in your poll but I want to make it clear that I mean a real orchestra, not a bunch of samples playing notes with no emotion. If you're going to do that, go with 16-bit instead.

Okay are you even reading my posts? You haven't acknowledged either of these posts and it's rather annoying, because I'm in one giving a moor detailed opinion than others and in the other I'm asking for something that will enable me to give you better feedback than the other people have been. I've been giving feedback on everything you've done so far and the majority of it seems to have been ignored.

It still kinda sucks, but I'm not sure if I could say what specifically needs improvement.

Just the composition in general could use some improvements, and that organ used for the main melody sounds really cheesey/midi-ish. Also the choir sounds too quiet, and the percussion is repetitive, stale, and boring.

I'd give this a C+ at best. Like it doesn't hurt to listen to, but that's about it.

No, it's not that, I just couldn't really think of a way to respond. I'll send you the midi over Skype after I export.

What, do you want me to just lie about it? It's not like horribly terrible but it's not really that good.
Besides, it's not like that's all I said. I did give tips on how he could improve it.

I think all that it really needs is some more strings/choiry stuff in the background, especially the new part. There's not actually that much wrong with it at all. It reminded me a lot of this:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jsAo8uE9dU
I can see why people wouldn't like it, but it's meant to be more of an atmospheric piece, so it just needs the atmosphere part of it more emphasised. I think the organ is a little too loud though. And timpani sounds would be great at the new part too!

Yeah, when I was making this I had that in my mind a little bit. I added a timpani a bit before you posted this, and I quieted the organ a little as well, along with an increase in the volume of the choir.

But I'm also trying to make it a bit more of a fighting piece because of that fact that they're going to be pretty fast-paced.

A new version should be up later today.

To me the organ part sounds like it could be replaced with the square sound wave (like from an NES) because how the notes are played, but that's my interpretation on how they sound like.

There's a difference between being truthful and being an asshole
You could have said "it needs work" or "it's not very good"
Instead you decided to say something that makes them feel like crap
I sure as hell wouldn't want to try again after being told that my work sucks

I'm guessing you've not read any of gir's posts before now somehow?
