Hey! So, I can't believe I haven't actually done any helping on this project, considering I've been stalking it for a while. XD So, after quickly skimming through the discussion, I don't think I saw very many people helping out with music for the game. I thought a favorite artist of mine, Hot Sugar, had some particularly fitting songs for background music in the game! Their music doesn't often get really intense, it's actually usually really calm, and would be perfect for background music for different locations in-game.
Here are some examples for good background music and the locations they'd be good for:
Title: The Girl Who Stole My Tamagotchi
Location: It honestly seems like it'd be good for the end credits or something. A lot of his songs are very "down-beat", and this one kinda is too, but not as much. It's kinda something that makes you want to reflect, and would be good for the ending. Plus, the title is very fitting!
Title: Not Tonight
Location: Definitely lively, urban areas!
Title: Don't Cut Down my Tree
Location: Something here is giving off a vintage aesthetic, but you already seem to have music for there! It could also work in Patchi Forest, though!
Of course, these are all just suggestions, it's not up to me! I think this sort of music would work well, it's not too distracting, and there's plenty to choose from! I hope it's okay that I've gone ahead and contacted Hot Sugar, requesting permission.
He's not VERY popular, so we've actually got a chance and getting a response. If he does not respond, though, we could probably use it anyway, I checked his website, he said nothing about not allowing his music to be used for indie projects! Once again, sorry for not requesting permission to contact him from you first, EMF, I figured it'd be best to just do it. I'm really eager to hear your thoughts about this, and everyone else's!
