Can you guess how a piece of VGM was supposed to be used in a game you’ve never played? This week, I’m giving you an experiment, and you will decide if it becomes a regular feature on Singing Mountain. I play a little un-winnable, un-loseable game show with my roommate, Glen, in which I play music from video games he doesn’t know and he uses his base knowledge of VGM to guess what kind of scene, setting or genre the composition was supposed to evoke. Play along! And tell me if you’re into this.
