Thanks!! I love the 8bit RPG games, too. The Final Fantasy games are fantastic, and I also really like Ultima: Exodus. The music so perfectly fits those games. The emotional landscapes created by such simple sounds are astounding.
I can't tell you how excited I was to write music for a game like Virgin Blade, which is heavily inspired by games like Final Fantasy and Zelda. I grew up playing 8bit Zelda, and I loved every second of it. I remember using the candle to light a tree on fire, which would reveal a secret staircase, and I thought that was the coolest thing ever.
My personal favorite NES song is this one
. It makes me feel like evil is lurking nearby.
You will definitely be able to get Virgin Blade through Desura and Impulse in August. It will be a little longer before we are on Steam.
Thanks again for your feedback! I'll keep you updated on the game's progress.
