Thanks everyone! We had a ton of fun making it. It’s awesome to get such a great response.
Just worked my way through Loom again and am now playing the Dig (both some of the best games made IMO).
Yeah! Loom! What an awesome old lucasarts (right?) game. I haven’t played Loom in forever but I still have parts of it engraved in my mind. I’ve never played dig but I may have to look into it.
I get the bulk of my inspiration by listening to music. Just spend some time listening to different music on audiojungle. Theres lots of good material here for inspiration.
VF saidThe word “pet” used in this way means ‘personal favourite’ in a non serious kind of way. My pet hate is when people do that thing with their hands and fingers making ‘quote marks’ in the air when they emphasize something.

Definition: A pet peeve or pet hate is a minor annoyance that an individual identifies as particularly annoying to them, to a greater degree than others may find it.
Sorry, I couldn’t resist!
Yeah, same here for working hard at another job. Plus having a wife and 4 kids! I typically spend 8 hours from composition to upload over the course of 2 weekends (4 days)
Here is a month long project I did in October called “31 Days in 31 Seconds”. A friend of mine had done it for the previous month and I thought it sounded fun to try. Just a one second clip for each day of the month.
And this is an arrangement of “Linus and Lucy” for double hand tapping guitar I did a few years ago.
I think I’m somewhere between 1 and 5.
Most of the time I have no idea what I’m going to record or compose when I sit down in my small allotted studio time. I also like switching methods up to keep me fresh like starting with drums to get a vibe. Or sometimes starting with a melody, or starting somewhere else.
But a lot of times I’ll end up with a melody, or a fully worked out arranged song in my head in a place where I don’t have access to an instrument, like my real job for example, and I’ll just have to quickly write out some staff paper lines and jot down super quick notation notes that I sometimes can’t even decipher later haha.
I feel like a lot of times I do end up with better songs when working that way (when I do decipher them haha) because my hands and brain have been so accustomed to playing guitar, like muscle memory, and I end up writing very systematically a lot. The other way sort of frees my mind to just think about the song itself and let it flow and not get stuck up on guitar patterns and stuff.
