First of all: i'm not a pianist. To tell you the truth, i can't play any real instrument and i can't read any notes. I just work with my ears.

I played the Hero Quest game with my best friend for ages, first the board game, then the computer game. And i loved this wonderful ingame tune. No matter for that poor synth sounds, it was the melody which impresses me. I started this rework a long time ago on my computer just using "Renoise" with the "The Grand"-VSTi. It was a very hard work to make the sound of the piano as realistic as possible.

REVIEW BY jackal (26/09/2007)

Very good, its amazing how the use of expression really gives the piece emotion that I'd never heard there before. When I remixed it for immortal 3 I cut the piece short as I felt that musically it was weak and if I continued the piece, it would have been too repetative. So it's a breath of fresh air to hear this.. Makes me wanna finish the remix.. INcidentally, the arpeggios towards the end were a "nod" to combo racer that i'd written previously..

6 XxDUSTYxX shouts: A piano should exactly sound like THAT! I'll throw my lousy Keyboard outta the window... :) Thumbs up for this one!
4 kjetiln shouts: As a pure piano arrangement the playing is too boring and uninspiering. You can have the piano like this, but than more instruments should be added. Add strings and choirs and this can be really really good.
