I made this thing...

Postby ollaxe » Wed Oct 14, 2015 3:42 pm

I made this thing...

It's a short theme for a small platformer game I made at the work experience programme this year. Or well, it was more of a project I used to learn GML, so it's more of a demo than an actual full game. I'll probably not be developing further on that project, since the code was quite messy and I had really simple "coloured square" graphics since I suck at making anything more advanced than that.

But I did learn a lot from it, and I also made this thing.

What else would you expect from that swedish guy with a high-res "8-bit" small Mario as his icon? ;)

Thanks! It is a quite short loop, and I was kinda short on time, so that's probably why. I did try to mix it up a bit in the second half of the loop, which I thought worked well to prevent it from feeling too repetitive despite its shortness. But hey, music sounds different in the creator's ears than in other people's ears. That's why the feedback I recieve here is so important. So thank you a lot for telling me this. I'll try to keep it in mind when making short loops in the future. :)

While I am happy that you took your time to compliment this, I do feel that the bump was kinda unnessecairy.

"Bumping", if you don't already know, is when one posts on a really old thread (or rather a thread that hasn't been posted in for a very long time) so that it gets put at the top of its forum. It's kind of a thing that people try to avoid around here unless they have something important to add to the conversation. It's actually even a rule (#5). I just thought I'd inform you of that. :)

Anyway, thank you for the compliment!

Also, what do you mean by "and yes... the downloads"?

I think he was referring to the high download count (609).

Anyway, this is catchy! However, I'd say the leads are a bit too quiet at times, but other than that, great!

When listening through it again, I agree that they are a bit quiet. I don't know why I haven't noticed it before. Thank you for the feedback!
