about

This is the complete soundtrack for the upcoming game Lizard, for the Nintendo Entertainment System.

Play the demo at: lizardnes.com


To play this soundtrack on a real NES or emulator, use these:
NSF: lizardnes.com/downloads/lizard.nsf
NSFe: lizardnes.com/downloads/lizard.nsfe

You can also access the soundtrack in the demo by holding SELECT + A + LEFT when you reset the game.


All of the music data, code for the music player and sound effects had to fit into a single 32 kilobyte page of ROM. Trying to make music in such a tiny space was an interesting problem! At the same time, I also had to make sure it still holds up when sound effects cancel some of the channels.

The average track size was about 1.5k. I tried to make each track at least a minute long, with two contrasting sections to avoid listener fatigue, and feature the "Theme of Lizard" in some way.

The original source files for the music are available here:
lizardnes.com/downloads/lizard_ftm.zip


All tracks were rendered with NSFPlay: rainwarrior.ca/projects/nsfplay/

Tracks were composed with the help of Famitracker: famitracker.com
