Can I dub this the coolest thing to happen to the MMORPG world since scantily clad cosplayers? NEStalgia is an free Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (yup I typed it all out) in the style of the old school 8 bit Final Fantasy and Shining Force games. It’s cool as shit! Except it appears to be only for windows :[[ Guess I’m going to have to keep playing Earthbound and Startropics FOREVER.
In the opening track Sleepyhead, Smiletron brings an emotive and honest compositions to life through the use of a warm chiptune lead and finely produced backing tracks. It follows with a the Sleepyhead Astro Remix, a expansive, dance version of the opening track. Smiletron does an excellent job of maintaining theme throughout the album, the acoustic piano track Somewhere Else takes us to a new space, but somehow it feels familiar. The closing track is a solo piano arrangement, that sets us down peacefully. Smiletron comes through with tight production and a warm master, Daydreams is the next level for this talented young musician.
The album also comes with a letter from smiletron.[audio: 02-Sleepyhead-(Astro-Mix).mp3]
