Nice work man, good to see someone batting for the under-remixed team.

'Effing loved Machinarium, one of the best point-n-click games in a while, you pay homage perfectly. :D

1) Machinarium is awesome.

2) Remixing under-remixed games is awesome (we should start a club!)

3) This remix is awesome. Absolutely refined production, great arrangement, and just...very catchy. Nice work!

So, I noticed something cool about this song and the image of Nobuo on the front page.

They sync with the bass beat pretty good.

That makes this remix awesomer.

Nice synthesis --

With soundtracks like this one, in which timbre and texture are central to the overall feel, it's difficult to pull off a remix that harkens back to the original. But you did a good job of choosing sounds that don't clash with the Machinarium feel. kudos

Haha, I was so excited to see a Machinarium remix up on here! I got the game awhile ago on my mac, and it is a great little game. I really like the feel of this track, it definitely captures the same dark feeling of the game.

DarkSim lays down some smooth untz here for our own good. I think the throaty mid-lows could have had the bass boosted some for good effect in the first half of the mix. Actually, a few areas in the song could have used some more bass to add more of an effect and help fill out the spectrum nicely.

The arrangement is solid here, I dig it quite a bit. With some production tweaks, this would be a great mix.

Man, that is a strong beat you have going on here. I love the little distorted organ, and it worked out very well in this ReMix. I almost imagine those clicks as skeleton bones clicking, considering how this has a Halloween or spooky feel to it. I haven't played this game myself, but from what I've heard, this would fit well. The whole track is darkly upbeat and is a perfect example of a great dance beat.
