Hello everyone and welcome to the 24th day of 31 Days. We’re almost at the end of October. It almost seems like yesterday I was just starting the series again and now it’s almost over. I hope your October has been an eventful one so far. Today’s Song is:
Strains of Insanity – Chrono Trigger
I really like this song, It has actually become one of my yearly favorites. You can really feel the tension and despair in the air. In the background every so often you can hear cries of a man. Laughing or crying, it’s hard to tell but one thing is for sure, this place is creepy and so is the music. For such a fiendish castle this song fits it to the letter. If you have never played Chrono Trigger by the way, stop reading and play it, the game is good.
Now this song for me, like certain other tracks, has become one that I’ve grown accustomed to over the years and have grown into liking it more over time. Like lavender town or Abyss I’m able to listen to these songs at my leisure morning noon or night and it won’t bother me. If anything it inspires me to think a bit about the game itself among other things. I often find myself thinking of what could be beyond the limitations set forth by the game creators. What lies beyond the wall or the hills, what’s underneath that truck in Vermillion city. Things like that. Logically I know nothing does, but it’s amusing to think about could be. Magus castle while fairly well explored is no exception (for me at least). I’ll leave it at that for now, this isn't 31 days of game theory.
