Breath of Fire I&II Project

Recommended Posts

Yeah. I'll take one of the battle themes soon. I'll probably have a good portion of the tracks on this project.

But if we're attempting to get OCR approval (Which we ARE) we'll need to not only pick up our game.

But we'll need to pick up our presence in the community also.

Depending on our connections... they could waver between acceptance and denial.

who said breath of fire was obscure? who?!?

Yeah. Definitely wouldn't call a five parts role-playing saga which has seen a number of ports over the years obscure.

Treasure Hunter G, Rudras no Hihou, Landstalker, Feda, Light Crusader, Ogre Battle 64, Baten Kaitos, and such can be considered obscure.

Breath of Fire is a moderately successful RPG franchise, much like Fire Emblem, Suikoden or Disgaea. It's simply not Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest.

The reason why BoF is still deemed obscure here despite having 8 ReMixes, is because OCR is generally mainstream-focused.

Making albums for less popular games requires serious credentials and tremendous perseverance, even more so for newcomers.

I find it a bit sad that there isn't a consensus in place as part of OCR's mission to specifically help promote lesser known games.

If the big artists were to lend support to the more audacious projects, that'd be a great way to honor not just the popular tunes, but the VGM as a whole.

Although this proly won't happen anytime soon, I'm truly hoping this can be achieved someday. :)

Thats true, although the first album I worked on was thieves of fate, so there definitley is a strong community of remixers committed to non blockbuster games.

A Giant and his Flea (Or something to that effect)

He's taken Dying Corpse and oh god can I not WAIT to hear what he comes up with.

This man has my eternal respect and now, my gratitude as well.

Dude.

That's actually 'Clean Hit' from BOF 2. And HoboKa has claimed it. D:

Sorry man. I'd love for you to take a track though.

I'm thinking of claiming a few myself when I get a break from school.

Ugh.

This is still happening guys, it's just slowly chugging along.

N-N-NECRO BUMP

I'm probably going to take a track, still playing through the chiptune to decide which one to take, but I plan to at least do one.

P.S. This project needs some love :-P

I do agree, this project needs more love.

And I've realised, I'm a HOPELESS Project Head, I'll continue to help out and direct.

Though, I'm just atrocious at it. Haha <3

Thanks for bearing with my guys.

HoboKa as for your WIP. Phenomenal stuff, I love the direction it's heading in.

I just did some culling of unnecessary themes, to allow for more thematic content.

I'll do some more in the near future probably. Just to make a more manageable workload.

Also, HoboKa just got me another WIP.

HOLY BALLS IT'S GOOD

I cannot wait for stuff to pick up.

Keep up the good work guys!

Back when this started, I recommended Shinny focus on one game at a time, and see how it would go from there.

Now with claims on both, the best advice I could give would be to narrow it down to 10 or so tracks per game.

Keeping the claims you have and going for a total of 20 or more tracks, limiting the content to a single disc.

Unless you're a veteran and can rally the whole community, a multi-disc project simply isn't realistic.

Even more so when tackling a more obscure title with limited following such as Breath of Fire.

Then again, if you've got a lot of time, patience and motivation, you could still give it a shot.

My 2 cents. :wink:

You make so much sense. I think I might just try that out. <3

Thanks dude. I'm still learning all the ropes around here.

I'll get there eventually! :D

You got Chuck Dietz on board? Nice!

I am looking forward to whenever this becomes official - I love the Breath of Fire music, and think there's some good source material. Get some rockers like Dr. Manhattan, BONKERS, etc. in there and you got an excellent potential.

Thanks man! I'll definitely look into talking to them.

I know that I sent Dr Manhattan a message which he didn't really reply to. D:

But I'll definitely keep moving forward. There are a lot of new people in the community with real potential too.
