My friend made a game, here it is

My friend made a game called Starwish over the last year or so. He asked me to make the soundtrack, so I did!! Also, my friend Wohali made a track for it, and she uploaded it too ^-^

Link to the game: http://www.kongregate.com/games/xdanond/rpg-shooter-starwish
Soundtrack link: http://www.auriplane.net/Starwish%20Original%20Soundtrack/
Youtube playlist: http://www.youtube.com/user/auriplane#g/c/AEF4FFBC34202374

In case it's confusing, BTW, this is entirely separate from the snaily game I made. (Though Paul added a bunch of snails to his game to make me happy.) Snaily will be up in a couple weeks, and I'll post about it when it's out.

Forgive me about the little HS, but Auri, after my exams i'll have some time and money to spend on music, i'll buy a new guitar (a Gretsch Corvette), i still have a little synth, but i wonder if it's a good idea to buy a BASS !? Something cheap (less than 300€), i can plug it to my USB Digitech RP350 so no need to buy an amp too !

So what i'm asking you is, do you think that could improve the quality of my recording, does it deserve, for me guitarist, to spend money on, is it a problem if i only play with a pick ?

TY!

Umm, someone better than me can teach you how to compose. I'm not a composition-how-to-teaching-person.

Lots of bassists only use a pick. You could always get a bass, and then if you want, learn to play with fingers later. When you record, you can decide which to use based on what's appropriate for the song. You'll have an easier time mixing bass played with a pick, though--it tends to stick out more in the mix because it's got a sharper attack and more high end (unless you're comparing to slap bass).

I think my own recordings sound pretty bad, so I'm not going to be like, "don't get a bass, you suck". But having a bass won't automatically make your own recordings better. You'll have to work at it. If you play bass badly, then it'll sound like you're playing badly, which is the opposite of good. Keep in mind that a bass costs money to maintain, too--a set of good guitar strings is $4, but a set of good bass strings is like $30. And if you record with dead strings, it'll sound dead. (Hehe, which I've done a lot...)

But I think it's worth it, because bass is fun :-D Also, playing bass can force you to fix problems with your guitar technique, and vice versa.

Really cool game. I always wanted to make a shmup with RPG elements. Which is the song playing during the levels? I think I'm gonna have it stuck in my head for the next few hours ;P

Track 1, by Wohali, is the one played during the levels. I put it first on the soundtrack because I think it's the most important song in the game, and because I think it makes a good intro, but it's also the only one I didn't write :-) I really love her song though.

Here's a link to her song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8OPDRJlE4Q

Finally got through the game. I didn't expect it to be that long.

Your friend did a great job and your music matches the characters and situations nicely. (It's a shame Bleep World wasn't used) Congragulations to both of you!

Loved the game and the soundtrack, Auri! I did have one problem about the gameplay though, but it might have just been me. Sometimes, it was hard for me to tell what parts were the background and what parts were the foreground that you could run into and damage the ship. It wasn't that big of a problem, but it messed me up a few times... I'm guessing you need to have a profile on Kongregate in order to save it, I didn't realize and had to start over... :( But, I still really liked the game :)

Edit: Unless he wanted it to be like that for the extra challenge, I only played on hard mode.
