yes, that toasted cat IS toast forever :D
Sooooo good! love all the funny events and like dramatic irony (got that from seeing a required essay haha) really liked how one moment the animation would be about to die, or like the paper clip had the upper hand, but things always got twisted and were funny :)
nice nice nice. very funny and i love to do this to people xD
Just listened to the Dot Dot Dot review audio, and watched that animation by some guy who i just forgot the name of. This is actually pretty cool since there's like a bunch of random events that you actually have to do. Just read the Update and I can see why everything is "Spacebar! Spacebar! Spacebar again!" xD. Good voicing and nice music. Sorta sucks that you had to cut off the songs, but it did add variety with the new songs. The stick figures were okay. Could have been less... 8 bit huge looking but it was still good enough to be understandable of what was an arm and what was a sword in the face at the end doing over 9000 damage. I have a hard time believing how people would have found this game to be hard, but then again i've only played this version.
I'm guessing the "Super PSTW" part in the title is "Super Press Spacebar To Win">? anyways if it isn't i think that fits nicely.
I think you should put back up that original one where it was the "normal" difficulty for people who didn't find this simplified version hard. unless it really is, super hard.
Could have come up with some ideas like on if you wanted to block or keep attacking instead of continuously pressing spacebar to hopefully not die, though that is what i think the PSTW stands for. Anyhow I don't make games so I don't know how hard all these suggestions could be.
Fun game though xD!
i got 1211 kills in zombie mode and commited suicide :) anyone remember how to get the m249? i only remembered how to get benelli m4 and famas
it could use some better effects and a bigger screen.. :(
I am no master in Ambient analysis; however, I will tell you, I have seen Dimrain47 turn the previous conceptions about techno (thoughts that it consisted of Daft Punk, and other genres with "electronic features" (not that they're bad)) into wider conceptions, as he definitely redefined Techno, and now the lucky NGers and youtubers that have discovered his music have another side to their definition of "Techno."
Now, for you, I just want to say you're in the process of redefining "Ambient." Not saying you have completed it all and it's all said and done, but I'm also saying, you've started and you haven't stopped because of completion or success yet, and through that, I mean to say you could potentially continue on this ambient path, and you should continue on this path, because if people could see the two sides of "Ambient" like this, and there other preivous notions about Ambient music, then you have done a fine service to the aural community.
About the music? honestly just perfect; 3:37 the fade in volume is a little loud at first is what I'd say, but that's about it really. Piano's good, progression is good, instruments and effects are good, for the most part the fade ins and outs are good too, so yeah ^^
Transitions and melodies at their finest! Man just gotta say again, this was the first time seeing NG's new look as this song was playing and it's just the perfect theme song for NG's website in its entirety you know? Just got this feeling that everything's going to be good on the site because everything's by everyone hah. What I really have to applaud for you in this is that there was NO snares at all! I mean, at least I think 99% of the song had no snares! I probably haven't listened to your most recent songs or two or so, but from what I remember a few months ago, or at least last year-ish, you had snares there to boost your transitions, which is normal yeah, even I do it a lot as you remember. Sure they sometimes had the same rhythm, but I can't blame you; it's basically 1 measure of a snare playing 1 note with different rhythms; there's not much that you can settle on to be different from your last song or other the next guy's song, but to take the snares out completely? That's like unheard of in half of this world of music, and that's a heck of a stepping stone into professional sounding music, which this song clearly exhibits. As you said, swerving emotions. You've got what, sidechains, piano ostinato (repetition) with direction and build generated by trance-inspired arpeggios, the feel of house songs with those long notes (0:23) (sorry if i'm describing house incorrectly; i don't listen to it often), and phasing/flanging or whatever too, and not to mention good reverb on whatever the electronic sounding acoustic instrument is that you got around the one minute mark. And that's just the beginning! In the middle now you take on a more serious side to trance and your roots (i think? 1:25 just sounds a lot like you for some reason), which definitely boosts your uniqueness as DJ-Babokon haha. Then you've got your gates to help spur your song back to the original theme you intro-ed in the beginning, and then high quality strings (jealousy!), and bam your orignal theme is back! This time in half time though, which with the kick playing only every half note, and less activity going on from your instrumental arsenal, now we can hear that you've got like a perfect sounding drum set too, not to mention the rest of the perfect sounding instruments...
Oh and nice harmonic ending ;P.
Hm well overall it's probably the mastering that people like PAY legit money for; I couldn't agree more that you can master your stuff on your own now, I mean well you haven't asked me for mastering help in ages, so you've probably figured out mastering a fair while ago. Your high pass filter effects are in the right places, and differ a little from each other, so it doesn't feel like it's the same effect happening over and over again - good. Yeah... you're picking out the right notes for the right feel too, along with the right rhythm, the right instruments, the right tempo.. .okay you get it, it's right and perfect in every way for this style. I like how you emphasized the clap velocity in the beginning; definitely distracts the listener in the right way as you get your instruments ready to give some ears their well-worthwhile eargasms.
You better reply with more than one word man!
Still, loving the song though; 10/10 (5/5 and 5/5 now I guess) and downloaded ;P
Haha jk. I'm glad you realized that I finally perfected mastering! And I DID use a snare, It's barely audible though. I layered it with the clap to get a fuller sound. :D
I love your awesome lengthy reviews! I read all of it. Basically all I can say now I thanks for noticing every individual part of the song and putting it into text. lol :)
I expect some more music from you!
Eargasm occured at the speed of light you mean ;)
Simply can't praise the fact that another song is out by you Dimrain, and also that it's so great! Sounds like everything from your past originals comes back in different forms in this one; like Jetstream! and Cloud Control put together, and Speed Trance in Underpants a little too; love the ABAB ish style you use with the beginning with that raw sounding synth and the solo-ing one; very nice :D. Your solos, as godly as they were before, are so f-ing mindblowing like never before, as i'm hearing all these chords split up, in split seconds, as you go through your characteristic pattern of managing to find every single perfect 16th note to put next to each other to make a solo have that one and only Dimrain feel. Also, in a way the song reminds me of Operation: Evolution, how there was the sense of a different story here and there, and then different things happening as the song progressed. In this one, you've got like of course the galaxy warp-speed feel, and upbeat pumping sound, and then you've got that transcendental sounding melody (doesn't even make sense what i'm saying but w/e) and then you contrast it perfectly with darker tones, wiping the smile off the listeners face as you put awe back on it. Even with the simpler sounding melodies like 0:50, you put so much effort into the background action (which is clearly visible) that it just flows so perfectly, until you shatter it with groundbreaking solos again, not to say that i didn't like it of course ;P. Key signature changes happening before i can even recuperate from the awesome sound of just one change haha; loving the piano too; you've always been and always will be, the best at putting fast and slow, light and dark, realistic (piano/drums) and electronic (synths), all together perfectly and flawlessly, no matter what the time is that you post it haha
10/10 5/5 Downloaded :D
(Sorry if my review sounds overly-happy and like i'm in love with you, which of course i'm not :)
