Rakuen (the game I have been developing for the past four years) is FINALLY OUT ON STEAM ^___^ To celebrate, I wanted to release a very special song, that's gotten me through some difficult times. I actually wanted to release this video on Rakuen's launch day, but I was just too swamped the night before (and basically all week since then) so I didn't get the chance to finish recording the video until today. It's been a crazy, sleep-deprived, exciting, nerve-wracking, wonderful week ^___^;
You might recognize some of this song from the Rakuen trailer! This is the full version of the song, called "Searching my Life." It's not actually in the game, which is why it's not on the soundtrack... But since playing/singing it gave me a lot of comfort and direction, I used it in both game trailers; so I thought it only fitting to release the full version once I finally finished the game. It's very special to me :) I recommend listening with headphones or good quality speakers. (Given what happened with the last trailer, I thought I should also mention: there is some low-fi EQ on some of the vocals, but don't worry, it's intentional this time LOL :)
Anyways, I really hope you enjoy it! And if you get the chance, I'd be honored if you played Rakuen~!
And a big thank-you to Slamacow for helping me to edit this video! He actually made a really adorable video to celebrate Rakuen's release (it features an Enderman-Leeble friendship, and a special arrangement of some music from the Rakuen soundtrack):
