Created in Famitracker (2A03 + VRC6), bandpass added and mixed in Reaper because I got lazy and didn't want to make 16+ new frames to get all the volume changes I wanted. Shoutouts to coffee and Bupropion.

This song is based on the wonderous amazement I used to feel playing RPGs and medieval-themed games back in the day. I died a ton since I'm bad at video games. Secret of Mana, Super Ghouls and Ghosts and Populous come to mind. Musically this drove a lot of inspiration from Dunderpatrullen and Coheed and Cambria.

This song is one of the songs I will have available on my next album, which I am aiming to have finished and mastered by the end of the year. Patrons get first dibs on every song I make, a certain level gets the finished versions via a download code (or physical CD) for the album the moment it's ready to distrubute. I'm also making little, 10-minutes-at-most mixtapes exclusively for patrons, which also includes music that isn't chip-related.

Rest in peace Chris Minami, aka ZeroEats/ZeroEatsSushi. Thank you for being there to help keep my spirits up and telling me about how much you enjoyed my music. I never got to tell you about how well-timed your encouragement was. You are greatly missed, and I will do my best to remember and learn from your constantly upbeat and lively spirit.

Much love to my patrons, my stream squad, and all the excellent people I've met through the various Twitch communities I've been introduced to.

Last but not least, shoutouts to those of you that specifically reached out to tell me about how much you enjoy my articles. I'll try to get more of those out regularly. <3
