I was liking the visuals and I was following along with the song until I got distracted by a typo on your end. "That we walked in different places," should be "paces." My biggest gripe is that it seems you didn't do your due diligence in analyzing the song while animating. Based on the lyrics, it isn't about losing a lover through a death, but rather it is a mutual understanding that lovers eventually drift apart, i.e. merely a break-up.

well done. great execution in story telling

You really got me cracking up on this one!!!! LOLOLOL Fat Greg is great

Clever. Everything ties together pretty well-- nice uniformity.
The riddle was the easiest for me, because I hate anagrams and since the game is dark it didn't seem hard to come up with the answer when the mind is already there. Loved the last answer. I wouldn't have cared for the story so much if it wasn't for that reveal. I also liked hearing the reversed music. Thought it quite fitting when the writer was talking about how others called him/her devil.

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Thank you!
I'm pleased to hear that the consistency is appreciated.

Yes, I was actually hoping a bit that the riddle would be given away by the mindset one was in. A bit of an experiment in one way.
The last answer is the first one I came up with; the whole game is based around that. I thought the idea so good that I just had to realize it in some way.

Heh, to be honest, I actually borrowed something from you for the sake of unifomrity. While I wrote some of the final, perhaps a bit more cold-hearted letters, I listened to "Return". But what I did was, I analyzed all the emotions in your track, and tried to revome those emotions from my writing, as that part is about loss just like your piece, but from a very different perspective. Thank you for that!

I've always had a thing for reverse music as well. Thanks a lot for playing and reviewing, Phonometrologist!!!

I'm on my fifth loop because there's a lot going on for three and half minutes here! Without looking at the the soundwave initially, I was thinking about how this is probably your "happiest" piece you've written so far. First half really grooves nicely. Then the second half came around, and that was quite a nice contrast. There's that menacing sound that I've expected to hear from you. It's really cool to combine the two moods. A jekyll and hyde kind of piece where I can also enjoy both faces respectively. Kind of like the Sun: it is essential for life, but it will also kill all of us if we've lived long enough.
Seriously dude! There really should be others here on this island of mine that enjoys the sounds of ZLEAP.

ZLEAP responds:

Man, I couldn't have said it better myself. 100% accuracy. Only thing I would add is the heat stroke at 1:52 that transitions into the more violent second half.

Thanks for the kind words, friend. They made this return all the more triumphant.

It could just be because he's been on my mind due to his recent passing, but the first three minutes gave me a Vangelis vibe. I enjoyed the synths and the syncopation in the arps. Great mood and drive

LD-W responds:

Thanks for checking the track out!

Yeah the world has lost a great one with the passing of Vangelis. Alot of his works utilising the CS80 have been an important influence over how I look at approaching my own synth-work over the last couple years especially. I'm definitely dedicating at least one track on Volume 1 to him sometime over the next couple of months

It's a nice piece. The mood and the rhythm keeps this interesting for me. I like the form and how the piano continues in an uplifting motion. You could have kept this going for another two minutes and I wouldn't get bored. I have to keep playing this on repeat.
Lastly, in most cases, the strings are a nice touch, but here I don't think it's even necessary unless they were to have a different part that complements the piano. As of right now it's being treated as a pad which is fine, but the piano is enough for me on this one. Nice descending motif in the left hand while in the right hand the melody continues to ascend. Would like to see how you are playing this because of the different melodies bouncing off that alternating ostinato. You do a good job in masking the hand positions

You're hilarious
which elon is impersonating who here?

ZLEAP responds:

I'd wager Musk is still a balding dork on the inside. No matter how much wealth he amasses or social media sites he tears down from the inside.

A bit reminiscent of Van Gogh. I like the textures.

ZLEAP responds:

I thankya!

Yeah, I do enjoy a lot of Van Gogh but I think there's more Clive Barker influence in this one. Although, his work does seem heavily inspired by Van Gogh.

whoa... this one is quite effective

ZLEAP responds:

I thankya. I've been arting more lately. Learning how to animate.
