Another short cue for you this week; I’m prepping for GDC, my piano students have a recital that I’m not entirely done preparing for, and catching up on music for Gunpoint as well as a few other projects I can’t talk about yet! Also, I realized this week that I must’ve dropped a donut in the back of my car, which in turn, I mean, like, of course, you get badgers. Living in there. Which I discovered (or rather, they discovered me) while I was going 70 on 280 North. So needless to say, I’m pretty tired.
And hey, that’s what this week’s song is about! A lot of games let you stop by an inn or a pixelated B and B or what have you, where your character can take a nap to restore their health. Nowadays, in games like Fallout 3, you simply pull up a menu, select how long you want to sleep, and the screen blacks out and passes the requisite amount of time.
But back in MY day, when we played JRPGs about spiky-haired jerk bags with disproportionately hot female sidekicks like REAL men, choosing to pass out for the night was accompanied by a little music cue. Like this:
Isn’t that nice? And then you’re right off to dream about polishing your ridiculously oversized sword and defeating the horde of sentient plants that live in the moon or whatever JRPG characters dream about.
So, I made my own bedtime cue this week. Play it, and nap like a god.
