A chill Line Rider collaboration with OTDE (Seth Chapman) set to Daisies of the Galaxy by Eels.
My Roles: 1st/3rd/5th parts, recording
Runtime: 3 minutes
Development Time: 20 hours of work over 2 months (for my parts)
Special thanks in the video credits.
The most important part of this project for me was challenging the idea that flatsled makes a track boring. I made each instance of flatsled in the track, and I tried to put as much thought and care into it as I could. I also enjoyed making my first kramual in a (major) track, and debuting a little idea I had to combine integration with contact-point-based scenery. But the part I am most proud of is the long low-pressure flatsled curve section near the end. It was surprisingly tedious to make it consistent and smooth but I think it was very much worth it.
This was not a massive undertaking. But I think it was an important one. I strongly believe that in order for Line Rider to have a future, we need to break the mentality that impressiveness is the same as quality, and that tracks need to be "more" detailed, intense, powerful, time consuming, compact, speedy, or even creative, than other tracks in order to be worth anything. Hopefully this track can stand an example of how tracks can be beautiful and entertaining without trying to be "more" of anything than any other track.
