My first PICO-8 thing!

(Excuse the crooked writing, it was done in a hurry by a non-Japanese borderline dysgraphic person xd)

All weebs stand up for our national anthem... in 8-bit form.

I bought PICO-8 at the start of this week, and it instantly became my favourite tool for making chiptune music. That said, this is my first piece of music made with PICO-8, so feedback would be greatly appreciated. <3 (It isn't the whole song, it loops btw.) And to those who know the song: did I do a good job? xd

Funny enough, I had the idea to do this a few months ago, but because I wanted to have a representation of the music video in there as well, I scrapped it.

As far as the cover goes, I am quite fond of it so far! I might make my own version, too, to see if I couldn't do any better ;)

Here's my progress. I also drew my own Japanese characters.

Nice! Yours sounds mellower and you utilized slides and vibratos much better than me! Also the way you made the drums gave me an idea how I can put variations in my drum track. I'm curious how you'll handle the "kami-sama arigatou..." part, as it's hard to choose and fit all the instruments into 4 tracks. (The brass, which I sticked with sound cool, but the vocal line sounds cool too, but then drums, bass, brass and vocals will sound empty imo. :/)

Also, I need to work on my writing. xd I don't know why I thought making every character a separate sprite and positiong them in code was a good idea. lol
