When They Won’t Stay Dead – A Steam Visual Manga (IN THE GREENLIGHT STAGE)

1da21a635614ee45e0a3d29ba1adb3b2-dami1j5

When They Won’t Stay Dead is a story about a zombie outbreak, however the story is more focused on emotions and characters, rather than gore and shock. Think the Walking Dead turned into a manga.

Yes, you read that right. A visual manga. Why is this something to be surprised about? Most games in this style are called visual novels, they are stories where you read text on a screen with pictures accompanying them. You can take different paths throughout the story and have many different endings. This game is similar to that, except the visual style is done like a manga. A manga is basically a Japanese comic book. I have heard that presenting animation (yes, this product has animation) in this style if very difficult. This style gives this product a very unique touch to the millions of visuals novels out there in Asia.

Please help this game come to life by getting it greenlit on steam! This project has been in the works for years now, and it would help us greatly!

Nothing To Fear – New Animation Short

A hilarious ten minute film full of slapstick and crude humor (in good taste) of two super heroes just doing their jobs. I recommend just watching it. It’s full of jokes poking fun at these two “Superheroes.”

Look Forward to New Things That Have Yet to Come…

Hello everyone!

It has been over a year since our last post. The main reason why is because my brother and I are currently enrolled in college. That does not mean that we have stopped composing music!

We have quite a few projects that we are working on at the moment that will be coming out someday. They are in the beginning stages. If we hear anything else, we will definitely let all of you know.

In the mean time, my brother and I will be periodically posting older soundtrack and albums on our bandcamp and Extemporaneous websites. Please enjoy those when they come out!

We are looking forward to all of the exciting things that will be happening soon! Please look forward to the music that we will be providing during that time as well.

Keep pursuing your dreams! ~ Hill & Wynn

New Album: “A Moment of Realization”

We created this album on Garageband 3 when our computer crashed an we lost all of our music an current DAWs. These pieces are the fruits of that tragedy.

The album starts out slow, and slowly builds with more joyful pieces. You could even say, it’s emulating our feelings at the time.

The album is $3, you can pay more for it if you wish (Please do!).

Please click on the picture below to go to the download page.

Final Fantasy X HD Soundtrack – Review

PS2CoverSheet108

Hello!

My name is Julian “Wynn” Smith, I decided to make a small review of the soundtrack to a game that I have always loved. Whenever I get free time, I try to play it. That game is Final Fantasy X. It’s such a nostalgia piece…. Wait… This isn’t the soundtrack, this is an updated version!

Here are my views of this new and updated soundtrack based on my Youtube comments that I left on this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYIa-H6fpTg

______________

The thing that disappoints me the most about this album is that MOST of the pieces do NOT have real instruments, I repeat, do NOT have real instruments. Just adding a real guitar and real piano is not something the original hasn’t already done.

Listening to these pieces being redone is kind of fun actually.
It has completely lost all of its nostalgia factor though. Goes to show you how important Mixing is when it comes to memorability.

The best renditions of most of the pieces are by Masashi Hamauzu. I actually thought the best new piece was actually Besaid, Mi’ihen Highroad, and The Blitzers (These were high quality arrangements! They could go straight on Final Fantasy XIII without even a batter of an eye. Also. The Blitzers is one of the only orchestrated arrangements; What a strange choice.). If you’re going to make arrangements of music, and change them. Either make them completely different, and high quality (Quality like Final Fantasy XIII-2 OST), or make it very similar (Like the Chrono Trigger Remake). Don’t give us half new, half old midi music. I swear, Junya Nakano didn’t care on some of these remakes at all. LOL Especially on Calm Before the Storm. You know what, you could even say that about Masashi Hamuzu!

But the laziest remakes of all are Nobuo Uematsu’s. As much as I love his music, and the original pieces. His remakes are so lazy. Want me to tell you why?
Listen to Ridess The Shoopuf? or The Trials and tell me what you think?
…….
That’s right, it’s not a remake, it’s exactly the same as the original but with a little less reverb!

I must say the quality on these tracks are all over the place. Sometimes Junya Nakano makes good arrangement, sometimes it’s a regurgitated piece with no emotion. Same goes for Masashi Hamauzu and the others on here (except for Nobuo, he didn’t even try). It’s like the composers didn’t even come together to make the tracks sound similar mixing wise, or quality wise.

I don’t dislike the music on here. But it could have been handled much better. Having option to go from old to new music in the game would be excellent!

Overall, it’s enjoyable, But I’ll stick with the nostalgia of the original.
It’s nice to have the new generation experience this game though.
I do understand, and I can totally see the director doing this, he is saying to the arrangers “Make it more modern. Like in the movies!” They even sound that way (Like the remake of Run! or Out Of The Frying Pan).
______________

I think you can safely say that I enjoyed the music to and extent, but it was slightly disappointing.

Also, for those curious, the bonus tracks of Final Fantasy X-2 are from the original OST [Noriko Matsueda & Takahito Eguchi], they are not remastered tracks… They’re still great pieces though.

I have found out, you do get more used to the music the more you listen to it. If you don’t think of it as “Trying to be the original” and just listen to it as background music, it surely fits the bill; it’s more enjoyable that way.
