Pushing Onwards – VVVVVV

I’ve loved VVVVVV since it came out and took hold of my free time. I still have to beat Veni, Vedi, Vici…

I’ve wanted to play Pushing Onwards forever. I chose UnofficialSoundtrack‘s arrangement. Sheet music available for free: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/23040402/Pushing%20Onwards.pdf.

There is also a different version out there by arranger and musician Brent Kennedy. His version is more of an arrangement than a reduction – which this performance is. I will never have the dexterity that @UnofficialSoundtrack has. Have a listen to his performance… which is much cleaner and much more epic:

Pushing Onwards, along with the rest of the fantastic VVVVVV soundtrack was composed by Magnus Pålsson.

Plants Vs. Zombies Sheet Music

Hello World, I am still alive. This month, I give you sheet music from PopCap’s wonderful game, Plants Vs. Zombies composed by Laura Shigihara! The rather short and simple soundtrack has its appeal though, and sounds wonderful on piano. Expect a medley soon!

Oh, and if you don’t even know what this PvZ thing is, let PopCap’s Plants Vs. Zombies website fill you in.

Here are 3 of the 12 songs from the game (not counting “There’s a Zombie on Your Lawn”):

UPDATE: Laura Shigihara posted about other folks’ transcriptions and arrangement on her blog: http://shigi.wordpress.com/2010/09/03/plants-vs-zombies-piano-versions-7-sheet-music/.

Moonsong / つきのうた [Cave Story]


Cave Story Sheet music is here. Below is the 2-handed version. I originally arranged this only for myself, so pardon the lack of nice formatting and engraving:

Happy Birthday, Pixel (Amaya-san)! In addendum to the previous Cave Story Medley, here is the most emotional and amazing song from the indie game Cave Story.

Stay tuned for the Wii port of the game! I hear it’s going to be amazing!

World of Goo Piano Medley


So, after completing a complete Piano Sheet Music Collection of the World of Goo soundtrack, I deemed it prudent to create a piano medley All things © Kyle Gabler of course.

World of Goo Piano Sheet Music

Another excellent indie game I recently found is 2D Boy’s World of Goo (Wikipedia article). I fell in love upon hearing the music, and instantly started arranging piano-solo sheet music for the main six melodies.

Hey Listen! These are old version of the songs and kept only for archival purposes. The complete, unabridged, more awesomer version of all songs is available here.
