The boss battle music for Meridian Knights. Based off an old tune from a while ago, and I drew a tiny amount of inspiration from the Mario and Luigi series while trying to have a composition that both set the mood and won’t ruin concentration during an intense battle. Technically written with a church organ and clarinet in mind, but hey, chiptunes are magic. Or just the genre I decided on for the game.
Don’t mind me. I’ve just spent a little time tidying up around here.
Hope you like the new look! Pardon any mess left over.
Did you take a moment to stop by Damn It, Monkey!? Well, Act 1 of Episode 1, “I Like Martians” is up and ready to be read, like some sort of 7 minute cartoon waiting in comic form. Check it out, hopefully you see the waste of time as a pleasant diversion rather than a sinkhole of ennui.
One of the reasons I revived this was, upon reflecting on its last run, Damn It, Monkey! Just didn’t work the way I wanted it to. Ratboy works great as a serial, but this comic lost a lot as a serial. At its heart, it’s a parody, and the format needs retained as episodic in format.
Before rebooting it, I really deliberated on this one specific fact. How do I do a web comic that’s 30+ pages that need posted at a time? My schedule doesnt really allow me to churn these out as regularly as I’d like at this point. And so it occurred to me, why not post each episode in acts? I mean, any proper episode of something has three acts, and if I’ve done my job as a writer (I know I sometimes don’t quite hit that mark), then three acts it is.
Very soon – within a week or two (ideally! no promises) I’ll have act 1 of I Like Martians ready to go.
…No matter what Arby’s says about it.
Fenris is a rogue who meets Sartris early in his life, and his views of the world help shape Sartris’ own.
Even Razzle gushes sometimes. Or maybe all the time. Or at least right now, so that’s a start.
Another fun tune from Meridian Knights.
There’s really not a lot to talk about here. Other than Schwa was named Schwa because their name was originally going to be *Annoyed Grunt* but I went with Schwa because it’s a bit subtler. So obviously it follows schwa sounds make its way into the title of the song.
The music is a bit more intense than your typical wood theme, but the idea of Schwa’s level is that they are literally hunting you throughout the entire stage. That’s the basis of what I was going for and it may not entirely fit but hey whatever.
