Boss battle theme from a Phantasy Star fangame project
I wanted to make a Phantasy Star fangame back when I was a teenager but found myself getting far too absorbed into the music aspect of it, which set off basically a decade of work in music eventually leading me here.
The resemblance to the vs. Maruyama music from Dynamite Headdy is....well, let's just say I was less effective at adapting my ideas back then than I am now, though you can definitely detect hints of my style in this tune.
The odd bit that starts around 1:21 is supposed to be a recapitulation of what would be the game's main theme. Unfortunately, for some reason I no longer have that one in my files. I must have either accidentally deleted it when I thought I was transferring it from one hard drive to another, or it got encrypted, or something like that. I could probably reconstruct most of that theme from my memory and what's still here.
There were some 50-odd songs I did for the project. Not all of them are this interesting.
I'd like to go back and actually make the dang game at some point. I don't have as much time as I used to, so that might not be very likely, but I also have a much better idea of what I want the game to be like, so it might be easier to make.
