Hopkins, who records under the moniker 2 Mello, composed the more dramatic scenes – including a cinematic and celestial opening sequence, which drops you into deep space and gradually compels you to erase entire planets (and then something even bigger). “The cliffside scenes start with softer winds; as Kasio moves along in the story, things gets colder and thinner.” Rainsberry felt the arc of the notebook scenes called for an analog approach, one heavy on acoustic guitar, mandolin, and harmonica. Or app. (Frankly we’re still working out what to call it.) It’s an immersive sci-fi coming-of-age story centered around a journal kept by its protagonist, a young transgender woman named Kasio. An immersive app doesn’t just look or feel great: It has to sound amazing, too. It resonated with the rest of the team as well, and its visual representation became a core part of both gameplay mechanics and the overall feel of the game.
“I thought, ‘Why don’t I take this summer thing that makes me feel happy and pair with something else that makes me feel happy: cheesy ‘80s beach movies on VHS? “I don’t ever want to monetize Poolsuite,” he says. Most of the locals don’t know many things about it and the future of this situation is not clear for them. Explore a house that knows you better than you know yourself next. Just imagine coming in on a hot day from the garden or the tennis court and splashing cool water on your face in this bathroom, and you’ll know the essence of refreshment. Do you know how many days you could spend in Southeast Asia for that amount? “Are we exploiting those vulnerabilities or are we doing people a favor because we’re helping them put food on the table in the sense that we’re creating revenue for the people in the tourist industry and the communities that cater to them? “Clue” used to mean “a ball of yarn.” The sense of the word shifted to mean anything giving an indication or direction in a complex situation, thanks to the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur.
Corn mazes are a great way to get people out to the farm to buy produce and stroll through the pumpkin patch. “I imagine 10 people hanging out. “I wanted to replicate memories fading away,” they say. “That’s where I could work more intimately with the erasing system,” they say. “It begins with just a Rhodes piano and some bass and drums, but as you move closer to the stage, you hear more and more of the music. Each scene has its own distinct combination of music and visuals to move the story forward, but one interface element remains consistent: the circular bubbles you play to create the song in each scene.

In 2014, he launched a YouTube series called After Bit, in which he and his longtime friend and collaborator Ducloux interviewed prominent video game music composers about their craft and catalogs.
For example, early on in the game, you play a song called “Her,” in which the protagonist “goes to a pub, sees a girl playing music, and instantly falls in love with her,” says Bardin. The simplified controls helped players focus on the music, rather than placement of their hands or physical patterns they needed to remember. Those initial notes of inspiration led to the harmonious mix of music, narrative, art, and novel gameplay present in A Musical Story. In the end, Bardin simply went back to his own record collection, drawing inspiration from ‘70s heavy hitters like Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and Jimi Hendrix, as well as the endlessly inventive sound of Radiohead. What he did have was the keen idea to synthesize that summer feeling and his well-honed ability to curate music that sounds like sunshine. Sounds familiar doesn’t it?
