I mostly like to compose for the NES and C64, but I'm always trying new formats :)

Maryland's flag is pretty neat. I had to look them up but I kinda like Washington's; green is my favorite color.

strong metroidvania opinions:

- Super Metroid and Castlevania Symphony Of The Night used to be the genre-defining games, but now there is another - the genre is now a TRINITY and Hollow Knight is the third piece. It so overwhelming fulfilled the requirements of the genre *and* contributed to expanding it. Nothing else comes close to those three. It's basically the second coming of jesus.

- Nonlinear platformers are not metroidvanias! metroidvania requires that the same item / ability you use to get to a previously barred area also have traversal and combat applications. Even if it's something simple like a dash ability - you can dash across gaps, you can dash past traps, you can dash to dodge enemy attacks, etc. Each 'key' is also a movement / combat ability, it's never 'just' a case of "use silver key to open silver door."

- on a related note, areas that require future traversal abilities to unlock, should stick out to the player the first time they pass through - it doesn't have to be 100% explicit, but it does need to catch their attention, and maybe even prompt them to imagine what kind of future ability they *might* need to get through that area. The player should pick up a new ability, and then think OH now I can go back to THAT PLACE and get through!

- Thou Shalt Not Deny The Player The Chance To Save After A Boss Battle

- There is actually such a thing as too many fun different weapon types (see: shovel knight, and axiom verge, two games which I nonetheless love dearly) - 8 weapons is already almost too many. DOOM Eternal is *not* a metroidvania, but it gets this absolutely correct in my opinion - you should always know what weapon you need for the situation at hand, and it should never feel like a pain to haul it out and put it to good use.

- maybe more?

edit OH also instakill spikes / bottomless pits are a sin

Hey there! Nice to meet you. Idk how to reply your comment on my entry so I reply you here :)

For my entry, I use 1xLSDJ v.4.6.6 without any custom samples patched in it, just a basic LSDJ :)

Hi! Nice to meet another accordionist/chipper. I love to mix the accordion and Game Boy sounds; I do that frequently when I perform live. They actually blend really well. I'm going to have to properly record some songs that really take advantage of that.

And now I'll check out Detektivbyran! Thanks!

I love Wintergatan! I actually discovered them before Detektivbyran, but maybe like them a slight bit less for the sole reason of having less discography.
