dorkulon • on 2nd Alakajam! entry Disappainted: Master of the Invisibrush

This is my first jam in a long, long time and it's been such a blast! Over the years, I've mostly been doing random volunteer work as a jam organizer or general-helper-outer, so this was a very welcome change of pace.

Together with @treslapin on art and @cloakedninjas on code, we made Disappainted: Master of the Invisibrush. Be sure to check out the game!

This time around, my main contribution was a indeed song I made for our game, which is now up on Soundcloud for free download, here. It's inspired by the anime Yuri On Ice, and Scottish band Mogwai.

With the full version completed, I ended up taking chunks of the song to use around the game; a bit for the main menu, another for in-game, and a third for the results screen. The full version of the song builds up to a massive climax, which was a bit much for the game, so be sure to check out the Soundcloud version too! :3

Besides the one play button sound effect lifted from the soundtrack, I sourced lots of little sounds from freesound.org to make some basic SFX for the game.

Making Disappainted: Master of the Invisibrush was super rewarding. Beyond just being fun, it was an opportunity to learn to use Ableton Live and the Push 2, both of which are new to me. I also followed a really helpful tutorial to do my first proper (proper = "any kind of" in this instance) Mastering for the music.

Let me know what you think of our game and the music! Can't wait to do this again!
