Unreal soundtrack! Should honestly be a real game, Make it happen dude!

Much appreciated! I worked on it as if it was its own game, kind of a "concept album" style but for a music pack. :) I'd love to score a full 16 bit adventure someday T~T

You should see if you can kickstart a Vinyl album if you're into that kind of merch! I've seen some "not an actual game" soundtracks do similar things. Clearly you've picked some fantastic art direction for the cover as well. Best of luck! I've already listened to it a couple times while I program :)

This is a very excellent music bag. I like it very much. thank you very much.

Thanks for your kind words and for checking out my music! :)

Love your work - it brings me back to my childhood playing Secret of Mana. I am an indie game developer by night - I will let you know how I will use those wonderful tracks. It will go along Mana Seed tile set and World of Solaria perfectly :D

Thank you for your kind words! SoM was a huge inspiration for this pack, I even bought a Mana art book for some visual inspiration because the concept art for those games is breathtaking! 😊

This is all very well done, but I was sold at "Crystalline Cave". The track is sublime, and i sat with a stupid smile on my face while it played. thanks for the music!

also, your orchestral arrangement is, for such a different style, very pleasant to listen to. Please consider doing more of the same in the future!


Wow thank you so much, that really means a lot to me! There have been a few tracks that I've heard a lot of nice feedback for, but I had yet to hear anyone specifically pinpoint Crystalline Cavern until now. I really learned a lot writing that one and experimented with a ton of elements and techniques I hadn't ever used before, so it really makes my day that it's a standout for you! :)

Good day tim, I've enjoyed hearing more of your work on your site. I'm a big fan!

I have been thinking a little more of how to use this pack, and I realized that I could make use of a victory/defeat "jingle", such as may be used at the end of jrpg combat or the defeat of a boss. i'm sure you have lots on the go, but i would definitely be interested in purchasing an add-on to the pack that included those two items.

thanks again!


Sorry for the late response! I'd love to make a "Volume II" that includes a bunch of additional tracks so it helps to know this. Feel free to shoot me an email if you want to collaborate on a jingle! :)

  • I'm sorry... When I paid on PayPal,
  • It reminds me that I need a bound credit card to pay
  • And I don't have a credit card
  • Maybe you can increase your support for UnionPay card collection?
  • If you support UnionPay collection in the future
  • Please reply to me. I'm making a purchase

I’ve altered the payout method so that PayPal is no longer required. I go back and forth because I honestly can’t tell which people prefer!

Thank you. Already bought!

This stuff all sounds amazing, great job!

Thank you so much, that means a lot! :)

Hello , I bought your package to use in one of my games that I intend to publish on Steam, but have not found the license for commercial use in his folder, when I publish how should I prove that I have the license of this soundtrack? I appreciate it if you can help, I loved these songs.

This is a message from the composer in a slightly older post.
"Thank you for your interest, rafman! I never got around to promoting this pack on Twitter  (oops), but yes! Purchasing this pack is akin to purchasing a sync license to use these tracks in a game. :)"


Thanks for the assist, Elliot! This is also covered in section 4 of the ToS for itch, if you want to know more. :) https://itch.io/docs/legal/terms#4-publisher-content

Thanks so much for your purchase, Srm4lingo! itch's terms of service covers this in detail, but by purchasing this pack here, you own a non-exclusive perpetual license to use this music pack! For more info, check out itch's ToS here! https://itch.io/docs/legal/terms#4-publisher-content
Thanks again! ^_^

I remember seeing this on twitter and being amazed . Can these be used on commercial games ? 

Thank you for your interest, rafman! I never got around to promoting this pack on Twitter  (oops), but yes! Purchasing this pack is akin to purchasing a sync license to use these tracks in a game. :)
