Hello kind-hearted friends in NL land. Papa swerd loves ya.

I've been working on a Chrono Trigger Nintendo-style EP (just a for-fun thing) - and I've gotten 2 solid songs down, but I'm a bit conflicted as to how to finish this thing up. Currently, I have the Boss Battle theme and the Kingdom of Zeal theme - I want to round it out at a solid 4 songs or so, but I'm not quite sure where to go next. I tried the song Secret of the Forest, but it's way too echoey / slow for NES chiptune to do it justice.

Here are the 2 thus far:

http://soundcloud.com/swerdmurd/chrono-trigger-boss-theme-swe... - BOSS THEME

http://soundcloud.com/swerdmurd/chrono-trigger-virtual-zealit... - ZEAL THEME

Suggestions? Criticisms? Pictures of The Rock looking entirely too swole? Bring em on kids.

Guardia Millennial Fair! That one will give you more variety, and I think you could round it off nicely with the main Chrono Trigger theme.

These are awesome man, well done.

I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

That is so awesome, I REALLY love the end (right before it loops). Stoked to hear the main CT theme NES-ified!

Enjoy people :) And if you haven't played this game yet... I have no words for you. Best thing that's ever happened to gaming, imo.

more CT songs? Probably not (at least right now) but my goal is a full-length, 70-odd minute album of nothing but NES chiptune covers (of games that weren't originally NES chip, clearly :) )

On that and all fronts though, suggest away! These days, the hardest part is deciding what to start work on, so suggestions are a rather nice creativity spark!

From Chrono Trigger, my favorites you didn't do are:
Battle with Magus
World Revolution (First stage of final boss)
Lavos (Lavos's theme)
But if you ever want notes for any song, look here. It's a website full of piano sheets for most nintendo songs and many others. If you can't find it on the site, check in the forums, but those pieces are generally less accurate.
