Like everyone else who has been exposed to the phenomenon that is Overwatch, the Victory theme that plays over the Play of the Game recap is stuck in my head. So I took what meager experience I have with music creation and editing software and carved out a short version of it. I think it sounds rough and unpolished, so someday I might apply what I learn later to attempt to make it shine. I used Linux Multimedia Studio for composing and editing, and Audacity for mastering.
I’ve known about the existence of this game for a while, but I was never curious enough to check it out. It’s a 2D platform fighter in the vein of Super Smash Bros., but its characters are original to the game. Someone in chat brought it up, and I thought I’d check it out. I almost wish I hadn’t. While I was trying to get a hold of how the controls worked, I was getting flashbacks to my days playing fighting games at the local arcade. Between that and the stress of not letting myself fall off the platforms, I was grinning like an idiot. And just like that, a couple of hours on a Saturday morning disappeared without my realizing it. It’s going to take sometime to get confident enough to leave training mode for a meatier challenge.
If anyone is interested, Brawlhalla is free-to-play (in beta right now), and it’s only available on Steam.
