To the Moon and Little NemoAugust 9, 2011 at 5:52 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 7 Comments
Happy Tuesday, everyone! A little while ago I posted a song that I wrote for my fried Kan’s indie game To the Moon. Since then, Kan has made a lot of progress. He’s on track for a projected release date of October, and he just finished a beautiful trailer which I’ll post below. I have to warn you though: if you’re anything like me, you may get a bit teary eyed watching this:
To the Moon is a reverse chronological adventure game that follows two scientists who traverse an old man’s memories in order to fulfill his most important wish. For a more detailed explanation of the game, you can check out DIY’s article, Derek’s write-up on TIGsource, or visit the game’s official website.
The second video I have for you today is a stage-by-stage piano improvisation of the music from Little Nemo the Dream Master, a charming Capcom NES game that I played as a child. My favorite thing about this game was how there were all these different animals that would give you rides if you fed them candy. Besides being cute, taming animals with candy made for a really fun game mechanic. Each animal could access different areas based on their abilities (bees could fly in short bursts, lizards could climb up trees, gorillas could pound your enemies, etc.). If you haven’t played this game (which is likely, given how obscure it was), I strongly recommend checking it out. Here’s to hoping Nintendo brings it to virtual console!
