I found the beginning extremely compelling, even though the art was not sophisticated. Almost entrancing. So I was a little surprised by the initial transition, but once it was under way I loved every second of it...
Great concept, great twists, great ending - although I would have liked to see more. I could have used more plot in there, within the dreamworld. I felt like we had only just seen the dreamworld when we were jolted back out of it, although perhaps that was the intention.
Aside from that, I liked the music but would have preferred a less "pixelated" sound. In other words I liked the composition but not the instrumentation. But that is mostly personal taste. 9 out of 10. Excellent.
Hi, thanks for the response! I would have liked to do more with it as well. However, i was working within the 2 minute parameter of the song... so i was forced to discover how little time that is to actually develop a storyline. There was going to be a whole yin-yang parallel consciousness thing with the shepherd.
And yea, as far as the audio goes, i'm a sucker for 8bit :3
