Well, since we've discussed a lot about music changes lately, I was wondering, what's everyone's most favorite tunes in Dragon Warrior VII? For me, much of the soundtrack is pretty much great and fits the mood of the game excellently. I will say though, there are certain tunes that just 'stick' with me, or mesmerize me long after I've put the game aside for a bit. For me, those would be: The Dejan Village Theme - I love classical guitar work in videogames, the effect of nylon strings is a wonderful sound, though I'm admittedly biased since I'm play a bit of guitar myself. This theme, and the other one which I'll link to in a moment are strangely missing from a lot of the OSTs I see uploaded on Youtube, which is a shame. The Deja Ritual Dance Theme - Granted, the two themes aren't actually played on 'real' guitars. Or "tulas" if you want to be in-universe specific. This is honestly, conceptually, a wonderfully designed piece for a nylon guitar type of sound. Does anyone know what these two sound like on the updated 3DS version? Hopefully the original Japanese version might have an actual 'acoustic' version so I might hear what this would sound like played on actual strings. The Opening Prologue Theme - I remember this being the first thing that really caught my attention when first booting up DWVII. First time ever playing any DQ game, and it set the atmosphere perfectly. I had no idea what I was getting into, but this definitely got me curious. I really do wish the 3DS version still had that scene, but at least there's an updated version of this tune floating around on the uploaded 3DS ost. The Skystone Theme - Wow, this tune. This and Heavenly Flight from III and VIII have to be my favorite 'sky travel' tunes from the DQ series. There's a lot of mood variance in this one though, but it really does give me mental images of the Hero and his party sailing across the sky, looking down on the various islands they restored, and remembering the events that happened at each one. The Symphonic Version is a masterpiece as well, though the dynamic fortississimo definitely freaks me out sometimes if I'm not ready for it. There's so many tunes I could name in addition, perhaps I'll edit the post later to add them in, but what are your favorite musical pieces from this game?
Welcome to the third campaign in a series of contests called "Dragon Quest for the West". The purpose of these contests is to create a social media firestorm with the intention of increasing awareness of the Dragon Quest series and getting the attention of the series' creators and other parties who have the power (but not yet the incentive) to bring these games to the west. Your mission in this contest is to create an advertisement for Dragon Quest VII, focused on Kiefer! Each entrant has to come up with at least one piece of art done in the concept of an advertisement for DQ7 using Kiefer. The sky is the limit, anything you can think of. Are you a lousy artist who thinks this contest is not for you? Well don't run away just yet! There are plenty of options for you to not only participate in this contest, but also to win! Instead of a drawing or a beautifully Photoshopped design, you could try doing some cosplay and taking photos. Or you could even make a video advertisement of sorts. You could even just partner up with someone and help them out in some way. Both of you will earn badges! The winning advertisement will receive a twitter blast and all kinds of glory. Enough of the preamble, here are the juicy details: 1) Submit your advertisement to me via private message or directly in this topic if you prefer 2) Submit as many advertisements as you have the time to create, and feel free to work with others 3) You have until Sunday, April 5th 2015 (Easter Day) to make your eggcellent submissions 4) Submissions will be voted on by the community to determine the winner 5) All submissions will be tweeted out during the contest period under the hashtag #QuestToTheWest 6) The winning advertisement will get an especially focused twitter blast In case you missed the Arus campaign results, you can see the submissions from that campaign here.
