I did make a yuri game called Highway Blossoms though.

I really liked Shades of Echo. It sounded like something out of a Paper Mario game.
Some other people had signatures, so I figured it was the cool thing to do.

Be Green, Listless Reminiscence, and Fugue, and Shades of Echo are the four strongest tracks in my opinion. Every track is at least good, so I'm pleased. In the end the most important aspect of music in a VN is how it's used, i.e. how it fits into specific scenes to provoke emotion. I like how the style is aesthetically complementary to the classical European setting, but don't be afraid to deviate from piano/strings. Most tracks are very powerful, but I trust devs to implement them in such a way so they wont be overpowering (unless appropriate). This is the opinion of a person with no professional musical training or education, so take it as you will.

Overall great job guys, I'm excited for the demo! ;) :lol:

That one is my favorite as well. I've given the album a home in my library since they're all enjoyable though. :)

Alright, so do we want to put on our thinking caps and speculate how these songs might be used in the game? Here are my best guesses (note that best does not necessarily mean good, or accurate):
The Broken Mirror-Sounds rather depressing. Could be used in Erik's scenes early, or maybe Katja's.
Nebulous-A really fun piece, probably a general school scene, but maybe associated with Annaliese's route.
Listless Reminisce-This sounds like a reworking of Recollections, so this could very well be the title screen piece.
Be Green-A reworking of December's Greetings I think. This sounds like it could just be a fun song for general school scenes.
Fugue-Very elegant and classical-ish. Could be a general 'love scene' song, or maybe associated with Katja's route.
Sacher and Karlsbader-A general school theme, or associated with a side character. I don't even have any real guesses for this one.
Shades of Echo-Possibly the 'comic scene' theme.
19th Century Girl-I don't know if any of the heroines could be described as a '19th Century Girl'. So possibly a side character. If it is a girl, maybe one of the Twins or Jeanne? The piece sounds rather tense, the drums imitating a clock add a lot of this tension I think. To me it suggests maybe anxiety, or compulsiveness. This one, and The Broken Mirror are the ones I'd most expect to be associated with characters.

My method for pairing songs with girl's routes was trying to decide what sort of mental disorder vibe I get from the piece and then pairing it with a girl based on what mental disorders I think that *they* have. So, this is doubly speculative, and almost certainly wildly incorrect. Still, what sort of predictions do you guys have?

And what mental disorders do you think the girls have?

Good guesses on Listless and Be Green. Listless is in fact a rearrangement of Recollections, but it isn't the title theme. "December's Greetings" actually came after "Be Green". Right now, we have about 4 variations planned for that one, as it is indeed one of the generic themes, and we want it to change depending on time.

"Good guesses on Listless and Be Green" Implied bad guesses for the rest of them then? Ah well. ;) Actually, didn't the December post say that December's Greetings was a reworking of the "theme song"? Theme song doesn't necessarily mean title screen song though. And Gloom, that would probably need a thread in and of itself, which I will possibly go create. I only wanted to get other people's guesses about how the songs might be used here.

Edit: Gloom, my predictions now have their own thread. viewtopic.php?f=34&t=1040

Oh, I recall 19th Century Girl from the first Missing star musical preview.

The first musical preview doesn't actually work anymore. http://somnovastudios.blogspot.com/2012 ... r-you.html This intentional?

Yeah, I noticed that a few months ago. Maybe whoever runs the youtube channel accidentally selected it when making other videos private.

I'll ask Astartus about it when I see him around, thanks for the heads up.
