Here's my PICO-8 tribute to my favourite end-of-game music, "Still Alive" from Portal.
I also replaced the original credits with some shout-outs to the PICO-8 community! ;o)
Hope you like it and don't forget: the cake is a lie!
(P.S. - The original game music was done by Jonathan Coulton)
Thank you, very GLaD you liked it - 'twas fun to make! :D
(Sorry Felice/PixelCod - knew I'd forget some ppl, I'm sure there are plenty others as well, D'Oh!)
Ageed, while the BBS has kinda slowed a bit, the overall PICO-8 community remains strong and awesome. So, I wanted to give a little something back!
Stay awesome everyone! now where's that cake :D
Indeed, it's GLaDOS. That's really what makes the song for me. It's touching and frightening at the same time.
People who have played Portal 2 may not know this about the so-called Turret Opera, because it's not sung in English, but the lyrics are very meaningful and reveal an important element of the story. I won't say anything here, because spoilers, but for those who are done with Portal 2, it's well worth looking up a translation + explanation.
Thanks again all, much appreciated :o)
(again - sorry for those I missed)
Yup, what @Felice said - couldn't have said it better myself! ;o)
I still wish I could've had mixed case in the lyrics, because one of my favourite lines is:
- "But I'm GLaD I got burned,"
...and it's just perfect coming from her. :o)
Felice et al.:
Correct. I'm using a helpful "smallcaps" routine (that someone else made - alas I forget who), coz I used it previously in SCUMM-8 and thought it looked cooler.
The fact that it also meant I could then squeeze more verse lines in (being about 3 pixels smaller in height than "regular" case) was a juicy bonus! :D
