Hello! Let’s all tread together the treacherous path of the final day of the work week joined by some great music!
Happy Black Friday, everyone! And I also hope you enjoyed Thanksgiving! If you live in a place where such things are celebrated, of course!
Down here we don’t “celebrate” either of them, but my mom does like to have a family turkey dinner. And while it’s not a holiday, many stores are adopting a Black Friday motif, with discounts that are never as deep as those seen in the US but at least they recognized digital was a menace and reacted accordingly. You could say they’re throwing us a bone…
BUT I DIGRESS!
Today it’s all about Undertale, the surprise 8-bitish RPG available on Steam. I was gifted a copy by Twitter friend Tako and gave it a shot yesterday during my lunch break. It’s funny, interesting, and combat – in particular the fact that you can win every battle without killing anyone – is tricky but fun.
Today’s track plays in an early zone of the game that’s covered in snow, and I can say the theme fits perfectly! It’s so… well, I was gonna say that the theme reminds me so much of snow-related themes from the SNES era, but the fact is most tracks do. It’s a mixture of 8-bit and 16-bit stuff that sounds really good.
Undertale is on Steam for $9.99, and if you like game music and/or RPGs be sure to take a look. Happy weekend, everyone!
