Noisysundae — Sate Your Musical Appetite. We are under renovation currently so there will be no new menu from us for a while. However, during this hiatus, Noisysundae is going to change bit by bit.

Note of the Week

"After playing around TiddlyWiki for a week, I found it to be a nice place to write down my game designs and any concept I came up with in general, but It lacks math functionality. I really wanna make a stat calculator or something like that. Well, I guess I'll just go with a normal wiki. I've had enough headaches trying to make it works. This is a part of one of many game designs I made." — The Manager

"Anyway, I'm proud to present my rhythm MOBA game design inspired by Crypt of the Necrodancer. The gameplay is pretty much the same but with a hexagon grid. Imagine using QWEASD for walking! The wiki page I captured is a (now scrapped) customization page. Aquila is a composition (aka a hero). The details in the picture could be confusing if you've never played both Crypt of the Necrodancer and a MOBA game before. When the wiki reach a milestone, I'm gonna host it to show you. I can't guarantee the upload date, though, since I also have renovation tasks to do." — The Manager

Our manager's babble asides, we've made a new FL Studio template too because we recently updated it to version 20. Took us a whole day to set the Control Surface GUIs and links to everything on the Novation Launchkey.

4914553_154803566393_Capture.png

The template is still incomplete and we will make a note once it is. For the next week, we are going to do some more stuff on the visualizer and the wiki.


Commission Details (not yet opened)

We are going to write down all the details in the Noisysundae HQ. It will be available once renovation is finished. As of now, the styles we intended to go for the commissions are atmospheric and melodic stuff as you usually taste from our menus like OceansideHeart of the Mountain, and many other. We also prefer epic (fake) chiptune like Midnight Phantoms and piano stuff too. All is mixed with the current mastering approach (Cosmic Observer and Your Everyday Happycore, for examples). Currently, we set the main focus on the renovation and we are going to finish it first within a few months. 1st of April is the ETA.

Note of the Week

This is the result of what we were talking about last week!

Unlike in any of our visualizers, this one uses MIDI data exported from FL Studio instead of directly tampering with the audio amplitudes (levels). With MIDI, we can have some cool features such as precise percussion hits, or animations related to note's pitch and velocity. As you see in the video, the particle generation rate and brightness vary from each note's velocity. The only problem we have currently is when multiple notes are in effect in one frame. After trying to program the After Effects expressions, we can deal with the case when multiple notes are triggered (e.g. chords). Then, what about when a note is triggered while another note is being held (think guitar arpeggio)? It happened within this video, too, when an arpeggio occurs in the middle and the particle origin flickers to the left. Even if we manage to cover that case with expressions, it would be too computationally expensive and add too much render time to the project. That is because of how expressions work.

Well, we will stop here since this conversation gets technical really fast. Anyway, if you are interested and have any questions, feel free to ask in this post.

Note: Our manager made that piano short back a few months ago.

"Off topic, I also discovered TiddlyWiki this week and found that it can be very useful for writing my game designs! I would like to spend this week for experimenting with it. I'll open a new post for the next renovation note to talk about this. Oh! And I'm still doing fine on the piano lessons. Still spend 1-2 hours practicing every day. :D" — The Manager

Important Speech (From November 18th's Note of the Week) 

We are afraid to say that we cannot complete the renovation before new year. However, we are making another big announcement by doing a unique visualizer based on the new Noisysundae Visualizer 3.0 template. Of course, that means after half a year, a new sundae is coming! For now, we are pausing everything not related to the visualizer (except the HQ, if we have spare time during the work hours) for the rest of this year. If things go well, our manager is more than willing to quit his current full-time job by the end of January and work 24/7 on the renovation. He never lets us go and he really wants to make Noisysundae for a living. Content creator is his dream job and with your help, he can fulfill it! Until then, you can always come back here again on Sundays and keep track of our progress. Now, it is time we ask you to help us spread the word if you like what you ordered here!


Note of the Week

On the last week, our manager have to prepare the year-end presentation for his full-time job so he did not do so much works here. Still, we managed to make some progress. Let us go straight to our current main priority, the visualizer. We got the 10-second intro back! It is obviously incomplete. We still have to work on the default art and animate it both in this and the Noisysundae HQ as a background. We are trying to animate the icon in loop but masking the shape layers, combined with setting the pivots for each layer (for rotation and scaling. See how our icon wobbles in the jingle.), in After Effects is a lot of work, unfortunately. We are going to animate that in Blender and import the pre-rendered footage instead. Other than that, the structure of the intro composition itself is very messy at this moment. Perhaps starting over is a better choice.

Nonetheless, which version of the menu info do you prefer? The old one, which has a shaking metronome and a flashing clef, or just simple lines of text like the one in this video. We understand that putting more efforts does not always mean we will get a better result so we would like to hear your opinions, if there will be any.

"I also had some spare time during the work hours and worked a bit more on the Noisysundae HQ. Set up the Setting page which will definitely be used in the future. For now, the highlight color can be changed if you get sick of the strawberry main color. It's saved in your local storage. That means the color stay changed the next time you open the Noisysundae HQ. Additionally, I added soft shadows in some elements too to make them stand out more." — The Manager

And that was all we did last week!

10 minute Inktober

The collection below is ordered by date (left to right, top to bottom). Click to see the larger view.
* Note: This collection
will not be carried onto the next news post.

Collection

Day 1
9:50 - 10:00 PM (GMT +7)
"I used to draw tribal arts much better than this. I'm going to make my way back to that point by doing this challenge, I guess." — The Manager

Day 2
9:25 - 9:35 PM (GMT +7)
"Welp, a flower. At least, the angle made this doodle looks decent." — The Manager

Day 3
11:10 - 11:20 PM (GMT +7)
"Safe! Almost missed the train today lol. Now that I think about it, is 10 minutes too short to make an art? Well, I don't want to make just a doodle anymore. I used to spent an hour before a collage class drawing an epic tribal art too. Perhaps because I always do my drawings slow." — The Manager

Day 4
8:13 - 8:23 PM (GMT +7)
"Starting to get the hang of it. Felt more comfortable adding the lines now. When I do a tribal art, I start with a thick curve, then draw the rest out of it. My doodles are mostly abstract because they aren't based on any real world object." — The Manager

Day 5
8:06 - 8:16 PM (GMT +7)
"Well, managed to make today's doodle into something real. Otherwise pretty messed up, this one." — The Manager

Day 6
11:33 - 11:43 PM (GMT +7)
"Drew this before bed. I was too tired yesterday so I slept (or rather, passed out) right after. Some countries are still before midnight now anyway." — The Manager

Day 7
6:17 - 6:27 PM (GMT +7)
"Did this after dinner and before editing the headers. I was satisfied with this halfway through and decided to play it safe, added double curves untill the time was up." — The Manager

Day 8
8:18 - 8:28 PM (GMT +7)
"Stencil curves here and there." — The Manager

Day 9
9:24 - 9:34 AM (GMT +7)
"Well, it looks just like..." — The Manager

Day 10
8:52 - 9:02 PM (GMT +7)
"It seems I bent the curves too much this time. Should've made the tail smaller but not too small or it'll be like the yesterday's doodle." — The Manager

Day 11
7:53 - 8:03 AM (GMT +7)
"Another doodle to start my day." — The Manager 

Day 12
7:56 - 8:06 AM (GMT +7)
"I got an idea! Since I wanna keep the 10 minute rule for the rest of the month but also wanna make big creations, I'll continue drawing this thing tomorrow." — The Manager

Day 13
11:33 - 11:43 PM (GMT +7)
"I think this thing needs tail but it's already 10 minutes for today. Gonna do it tomorrow. Started this late because I was doing something big, though." — The Manager

Day 14
10:16 - 10:26 PM (GMT +7)
"It has no legs! I'm doing them tomorr- *Slapped by Batman*" — The Manager

Day 15
5:18 - 5:28 PM (GMT +7)
"Well, looks like Facebook tried to cut down my reach now that I post more frequently. I guess I'll keep the same way of posting (post only when I release something) after the Inktober is over." — The Manager

Day 16
8:52 - 9:02 PM (GMT +7)
"Drew this right after I arrived home despite of my exhaustion. Got off the work at 5:30 PM, walked one and a half kilometers (about a mile) only to wait for 45 minutes to catch a bus...standing in it for the next couple of hours, all because a construction company closed two lanes of an already busy road and guess what, they close four of them towards an intersection! Good thing I drank enough water to get through this. *ranting ends here*" — The Manager

Day 17
11:05 - 11:15 PM (GMT +7)
"Today, I changed the way back from the office only to arrive home at the same time as yesterday. Can't I have a little more time between work days?" — The Manager

Day 18
9:46 - 9:56 PM (GMT +7)
"Too tired to make a post everyday now. I can only draw this, write something, and go get a 6-hour sleep." — The Manager

Day 19
10:03 - 10:13 PM (GMT +7)
"Finally, Friday nearly ends. I'm having a whole next week off! Still going to work on Noisysundae, though." — The Manager

Day 20
1:52 - 2:02 PM (GMT +7)
"It's cloudy today so I feel like drawing Pandora's Box." — The Manager

Day 21
10:00 - 10:10 PM (GMT +7)
"This is the last doodle I draw for Inktober 2018. For the remaining 10 days, I'm going to make a page full of tribal arts in 100 minutes!" — The Manager

Day 22
10:12 - 10:22 PM (GMT +7)
"And it begins, the 100 minute Inktober - First 10 Minutes!" — The Manager

Day 23
9:12 - 9:22 PM (GMT +7)
"Now that I think about it, I wasted many pages by drawing just one doodle per page. Should've done big ones with a few attempts (days) combined, like what I'm doing now." — The Manager

Day 24
8:52 - 9:02 PM (GMT +7)
"Now, I'm trying to make something out of this. This one is not gonna be an abstract art anymore." — The Manager

Day 25
10:11 - 10:21 PM (GMT +7)
"Today's my younger sister's commencement day. I'm a bit tired but I'm drawing this anyway. Can you see something now?" — The Manager

Day 26
8:38 - 8:48 PM (GMT +7)
"A demon has awakened!" — The Manager

Day 27
7:03 - 7:13 PM (GMT +7)
"Filled the bottom, didn't work as expected." — The Manager

Day 28
8:46 - 8:56 PM (GMT +7)
"Tried to draw a wing but the time was up. I'll try to complete it and also make the bottom end look smoother within the remaining 3 days." — The Manager

Day 29
10:38 - 10:48 PM (GMT +7)
"After a week off, this is the first time I really feel like the way back home is trying to kill me. The subway construction sites block even more roads than before. Seriously thinking about quitting the job at this point. I wish I could make a steady income off Noisysundae right now." — The Manager

Day 30
8:15 - 8:25 PM (GMT +7)
"Filled out the bottom and it really looks finished for me. I'm trying to do something with the wing tomorrow, in the remaining 10 minutes." — The Manager

Day 31
8:18 - 8:28 PM (GMT +7)
"What is this? Handwriting for ants? It's a demon anyway so...happy Halloween I guess." — The Manager

Previous Post: Two Weeks on the Job, a Change of Plan, and a Second Thought
Well, took us a week to complete this post.


TODO Updated: Sep 23 2018

ㅤㅤNote of the Week: This is the last note in this post before we move onto a new one next week. We are getting our templates ready and making the default theme to be used within them. Here are the layouts of Facebook and YouTube headers we made by hand.

4914553_153771183182_Example1.png4914553_153771185243_Example2.png

ㅤㅤAs for the next flavor art, we do not come up with any new idea yet. We will see after the next week when the templates are done as we said. The header update will also act as a template test. At least, all the headers on each branch (except Bandcamp and Blogger since those two are fully themed) will receive an update. In Newgrounds, the news post banner template (the one on the very top of this post, for example) is scrapped and removed from the TODO list. The latest menu notice will be within the headers instead. It makes more sense that way, especially when the post is not related to the release.

The Summary of our Current Situation (and a Call for Supports)

ㅤㅤSince the third of May, our manager is on his job somewhere else as a full-stack dev, and he is feeling uncomfortable with it lately.

ㅤㅤ"It's been a month and a week, and I admit that I have next to no passion left for the current job. Perhaps because on weekdays, I have very little time just to sleep, let alone doing things other than works, or just because it's not a game company. But this job makes me realize that I've been doing my dream job all this time, but it was overlooked. So, I'm asking you if I can make Noisysundae my real job after the renovation is finished. The whole menu will be always for free, it's just that I'm going to open the Patreon branch for ones who are willing to support me. I secretly created a Petreon account when we made a poll on the Scenic Ride visualizer to ask if I should use Patreon. Most of the voters agree with that, but I didn't do anything further back then. Before you ask, there will be no exclusive content for the patrons (aside from my thanks and shoutouts, perhaps) because I want everyone to enjoy our music, and I don't want you to think of Noisysundae as my way to grind money out of you. I'll feel really awkward if that happens. Other than that, I might open for commissions (something like making game OSTs) or start to get more serious on the Decay Project, which was planned to be remade from scratch due to the messy structure of the old project).

ㅤㅤI hope that I can actually quit the life of a salaryman and do Noisysundae 24/7 (Plus, I love my home, I'm introverted. :P). I'm counting on you!" — The Manager

4914553_152850863321_Untitled-1.png

ㅤㅤ"I still don't have a clear picture of the new default art, but I have 2 main sets of colors and styles in mind. One is 45% sky blue, 45% raspberry (reddish pink), and 10% yellow. The art style will be something like what you see in the "Under Construction" banner. The other is 40% chocolate, 40% vanila, and 20% strawberry. The style is like what you expected, minimalist pastel. While I like the originality of the former more (as you see it being implemented in many artworks), the latter represents the ice cream shop theme very well, and those are my favorite flavors!" — The Manager

ㅤㅤWe forgot to mention that our icon will also be changed, and our primary font family used in arts is now Tex Gyre Adventor instead of Century Gothic. See this post for more details.


Art Templates

ㅤㅤThere are currently 2 art templates here: a cover template, and a wallpaper template. We are trying to add some style into it since the old ones are just our logo & some text in the middle or the sides. As you see in The Loner's Lullaby wallpaper, The watermark takes less space, yet being more informative than the last one, which is just a bunch of URLs. They are also unclickable, so what is the point to keep them? As for the cover template (now we called it 'flavor template'), we just rescale the same watermark for now. We are going to change it in the future.


The Visualizer 3.0

ㅤㅤOur new default visualizer 3.0, along with the HQ (Noisysundae.com), the Patreon branch, and the Channel Trailler, will be released the last. We will mark the renovation as finished and announce the new Noisysundae. We still cannot decide whether we go with the current 3-visualizer-style plan, or another idea we have just came up with. That is...making the default visualizer for each flavor! Well, that makes 10 flavors. We know it is going to be a tougher work, but it will be really awesome if we have them in our store.


Sundaes

ㅤㅤThe base audio format was always the WAV, but we tried to move to FLAC in The Loner's Lullaby so we can put our metadata in the file without having to convert to MP3 first. And FLAC is actually lossless. It is encoded like MP3, but all the decoded data is exactly the same as original, whereas MP3 loses some similarity depending on bit rate. Unfortunately, the Bandcamp branch, which contains the highest quality version of our product, alters our files' metadata. Currently, we cannot deliver our original tags on the menu anywhere other than Newgrounds. This will change after the renovation since we are looking for a new place where we can upload the "totally original" version of our sundaes.


Noisysundae.com with About 3.0

ㅤㅤWe decided to rebuild the headquater (website) from the Blogger branch. However, since we know Blogger is not made for personal websites, we are looking for a place to host our headquater and buy our domain name. We intend to add more music (perhaps even an internal music player) in the About 3.0, as well as avoiding Flash since we are not good at optimizing our graphics in there. The actual design of About 3.0 is not in progress yet. We might upload the original FLAC files in our HQ, as we said in the previous section.


Other Changes

ㅤㅤAside from everything we wrote above, there is a bunch of fixes to do. We are going to make a new description template to replace the old one on the branches that contain our materials: Youtube, Newgrounds, Bandcamp, Soundcloud, Myspace, and Yourlisten. Anyway, we think about closing the latter two due to the lack of activities. The last one we came up with for now is making things more grammartically correct. We are going to change the flavor names as well as the art. The capitalization in all titles will be fixed, too. You can easily redownload the updated version once this task is finished since our ice cream is free already. Our reopening sundae will be called 'Motivation'. We intend to swap to composing it whenever we are bored of working on other things. That way, we don't have to rush the sundae when everything else in our roadmap is done.

Latest sundae: Your Everyday Happycore


Update 31 May 2018: We finished "The Loner's Lullaby"! The new menu are being served starting on Sunday. We are going to do a bit more on the visualizer and it will be done. Stay tuned!


(a full-time) Job

ㅤㅤ"Been working as a junior software dev for a couple of weeks now. The job has flexible hours, yes, but I work on-site which means there're opening and closing hours. On top of that, I'm forced to get up too early since I live in Bangkok (aka The World's Worst City for the Rush Hour). I wake up at 4, go out at 6, waste 2 hours to the traffic jam, leave the site at 5-6, and waste another 2-3 hours on the way back, end up having only 10 hours (at best) away from work. That amount would be fine if I have never made Noisysundae in the first place. Now I have to put it aside and focus on the job most of the time. The job itself is not exhausting at all, but it makes me realize I've always had a place I love to work at; here. Simply put, I don't like this new job but I can do it. Just feel uncomfortable now that I have much less time to do things I used to do. Those days were full of passion, motivation, and fun despite getting next to no income from the works (Only about $5 per year, in fact.). I really miss them." — The Manager

Plan

ㅤㅤ"From those feelings I have lately, I want to see if I can have Noisysundae as a real job! I'm thinking about opening a new branch, Patreon. Anyway, before you ask, I'm not going to charge you guys anything in order to enjoy our menu. They're free and will always be. The main idea is to make a donation box. Noisysundae already have one, but it's just a Paypal URL and no one notice it. I wanna make something more than just that. The Patreon branch is opening after renovation. If by chance it goes so well it has a potential that I can do this for a living, I'm willing to quit the current job and work on Noisysundae 24/7, full throttle, no holding back!" — The Manager

ㅤㅤAside from what the manager said, we are also planning to overhaul the flavors; rename it properly, and make a new cover art for each flavor (4K resolution base, cropped to a square). As for the new default visualizers, our ideal right now is to make a visualizer for each flavor, but it would take a whole year with the situation we are in right now. This is why we really hope our manager can actually quit his current job in favor of Noisysundae.

Renovation

ㅤㅤ...is still in progress. From today on, Noisysundae will gradually change its appearance whether we make an announcement or not. In the last two weekends we had (since our manager got a new job), we made a new wallpaper template. Starting from the next sundae, all our wallpapers in the future will be available in 4K resolution! We also got the new NG news post header which will replace the old "Latest Sundae" text and link. The sundaes released with a wallpaper will have it as the header background, whereas the regular ones will be like this.

4914553_152691588011_Blank.png

ㅤㅤWe made a version of the header with image map (map example: links in our Bandcamp header), and planned to embed it, but failed. Perhaps we have to use an iframe for that? As for unique visualizers, we intend to do the animated version, but we cannot confirm for now since we are looking for a better file format than animated GIF. Plus, as we said, we really want to use the image map for links.

ㅤㅤThe upcoming menu, The Loner's Lullaby, is coming with our first 4K wallpaper and the header with background. This should be done in a week or two. We cannot tell exactly when but we will try our best to keep up. We love our works here, as well as you. <3

Latest sundae: Your Everyday Happycore


The old logo...

ㅤㅤ...was lame design-wise (for example, you can barely tell it is a cup of sundae when it is smaller), so we are making a new one. Plus, we think it is the time for some renovations. Is this good enough for you?

4914553_152679771173_1.png

ㅤㅤIt is a lot more convenient to use in the arts since its bounding box is in an exact 2:3 ratio and the center pivot is at the center of the cup now. 

4914553_152679772343_1.png

ㅤㅤWe make a new text logo as well, but it looks 99.5% like the old one. Then why bother remaking it? Because we are planning to change the default font we use on visualizer and arts to Tex Gyre Adventor from Century Gothic. The new text icon is based on that font. The two fonts look pretty much the same, but the former has a larger set of characters.

ㅤㅤWe also added a neat hidden gimmick inside this icon (hope it is easy enough to find, though). Just putting in some symbols, as we did with the old icon, does not do justice for us.


Noisysundae Visualizer 3.0 + the new default art theme

ㅤㅤHere are the key features of the new default visualizer.

ㅤㅤ• Randomly plays one of three visualizer styles. (This means making 3 different visualizers packed in one!)
ㅤㅤ• ​Extend the silent start (sundae info part) to 10 seconds
ㅤㅤ• Add some messages like tips or seizure warning (apart from audio volume warning) in the silent start
ㅤㅤ• Key signature/BPM change popup during the play

ㅤㅤIf you have an idea to add, feel free to tell us in a comment. For the theme, we intend to make some sample pictures of what we have in mind (something like this) and post them here later.

Latest sundae: Reincarnation


ㅤㅤOn January 1st, 2014, Noisysundae was officially opened. Because of that, every new year is also our annversary. This year is our fourth one! We thank all the customers who paid us a visit and had a taste of our sundae.

ㅤㅤ"I used to make all these only for myself, but since I founded Noisysundae, over the years, more and more people spent even the tiniest fraction of their lifetime having some of the things we made. Now that there are people who actually cared for Noisysundae, I realized that I'm not alone even if I'm actually alone behind the screen. Thank you. You all motivates us to keep pushing!" — The Founder


The 4thniversary wallpaper comes in 3 versions: dawn, dusk, and night. View all of them in the Art Portal  (download link in the art description)4914553_151516803573_Preview.png


First things first. Where have you been? What took you so long to post an update?

ㅤㅤWell, our founder had food poisoning right after the first day of the year ends so... Now he is alright.


In the making of 4thniversary wallpaper

4914553_151516835682_3D.pngㅤㅤWe started with making a scene in Blender. We created a tree using the default Sapling add-on. With the generated tree, we found the view we imagined in our head, but it is impossible with the camera view parallel to the ground, so we tilted it a bit. After that, we modeled the chrysalis from a cube and attached it to the tree branch. We made sure that it will be positioned on the bottom right intersection in the rule of thirds.

ㅤㅤThe sky was not made right in the scene because we did the whole wallpaper within the new year's eve (and the visualizer video had finished rendering in the late morning).

ㅤㅤ"Well, that chrysalis is defying the gravity, anyway." — The Founder

4914553_151517009641_Render.pngㅤㅤThis is the rendered image which is used in the wallpaper. We thought it would look too bland and dull if we do not stylize the rendered image a bit. Later, we came up with the idea of making the whole thing look like a painting.

ㅤㅤNow, to Photoshop. For the sky, we started with a white-green-cyan radial gradient background. To add some shadings to it, we smeared some black brush strokes on a layer, added motion blur, and warped it a bit to align with the perspective. And we added a subtle glow on the chrysalis to make it stand out more.

4914553_151517197942_Text.pngㅤㅤNext, the text. The picture to the right is the modified text. The "A" was actually made of the letter "A", "4", and "t". Yes, the gap on top is not necessary, but the "4th" in the "An" was not obvious enough without it. Additionally, we masked out the left side a bit. Without the mask, like this one here, you will just read it as Anniversary, right? (Or Ahniversary!?)

ㅤㅤThe last thing we did is filtering the entire image with the paintbrush filter (Filter > Filter Gallery > Angled Strokes). We merged all the layers before doing this. Applying the filter to each layer yields the different result.

ㅤㅤOriginally, we would just call it the 4th anniversary, but the 4thniversary came into our mind the moment we saw the final product.

ㅤㅤThat was how we made the 4thniversary wallpaper. This is the first time we explained the process in full, and It is pretty much our production in a nutshell. The visualizers' workflow is more or less like this, with some animations and codings. We could have just released Reincarnation without the wallpaper, but we did it all by our passion. :)


@ItadashiKeiichi

ㅤㅤ"This guy made this to congratulate me a week ago and I didn't even know. How careless was I? He still has a long way to go in music production, but why don't you follow him and see what he'll become?" — The Founder


January...

ㅤㅤ...is our founder's birth month. An upcoming sundae will be released on 27th! The Robot Day is on 23rd so we are doomed to miss it unless we make 3 sundaes in a row or ditch one to two of them. Oh god, why?

ㅤㅤEdit: We didn't make it in time, sorry. Anyway, we have something to show you when the new sundae arrives. ;)

Latest sundae: A new beginning


???

ㅤㅤWell,  ̶N̶o̶i̶s̶y̶s̶u̶n̶d̶a̶e̶  Noisysanta is arriving late by one week, but we got a message from him.

ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ"See you on Jan 1st! I have a present for everyone but it'll be late. Here's a preview."
ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ— Noisysanta

By the way, Merry Christmas, people.

Latest sundae: A new beginning


The wallpaper is made of a pointless essay our founder wrote himself. The full wall of text is in the art portal. Click it!

Upcoming sundae

ㅤㅤWe are not sure if we are going to place it as the last sundae of 2017 or the first one of 2018, but it will be done before this year ends, that's for sure.

Latest sundae: Heart of the mountain
(The small embedded player was gone with the old audio player. Pasting the link is the best we can do now.)


And that snowstorm landscape below comes with the sundae. view it at the art portal

Talk about this wallpaper

ㅤㅤ"I originally didn't intend to make another snow themed art, but the snowstorm effect I was experimenting just suits too well with the icebergs for me. :P

ㅤㅤHere's the rendered image from Blender. Was going to make a rock mountain landscape with some fake sunbeams for epicness, but nevermind."

ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ— The Founder


Animated wallpapers

ㅤㅤStarting with this sundae, we introduce another type of souvenir for our customers. It's the seamlessly looped videos to be used as a live wallpaper. They're almost like those unique visualizers except that these videos are short and...well...they don't interact with the sound. All videos are 1080p MP4 @ 60fps. For people who use Wallpaper Engine, the wallpaper is also available in the Steam Workshop.

Heart of the mountain live wallpaper: Wallpaper Engine / MP4


Upcoming sundae

ㅤㅤOur founder is attending the commencement in early November so we expect a new sundae to be released around that time. We must make something to celebrate!
