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”):

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!

More World of Goo Sheet Music

I was a bit late with discovering the wonder that is World of Goo. My roommate introduced me, and I instantly fell in love with the game and music. If you haven’t already, buy the game, play it, and thank me later for showing you this gem from 2008. Oh, and download the FREE soundtrack for World of Goo from Kyle Gabler’s website. They will be some of the best 49 minutes you will have had recently.
