The soundtrack i did for Nociception: Simple Outlook From Hell, a game by Sawney!
The game is a bit inspired by Touhou, so the music is also a bit Touhou-ish, but i didn't want to follow the traditional Touhou style format too strictly here, because this is not a Touhou game, it's Nociception, so i wanted to make music that fitted with the gameplay and story of this game
For many of the songs in this game, my focus was on creating strong melodies but with more darker undertones, the game is set in hell after all, and even though Empitts, the main character, is from hell, some of it should still sound slightly foreboding, it's a contradiction between familiarity and unfamiliarity, and i love exploring feelings like that in music
I really enjoyed composing for this OST, i think my favourite song is the final boss theme because of the chord complexity, it took a long time to get those right, but i'm really happy with how it turned out
