I just got a free time from all the suspended work schedules as well as classes due to continuous raining starting last week. And from that free time, I went back to one of my games on Android to let off some steam from a week's stress both from work and classes.
Have anyone heard of Cytus? Yes the rhythm game that has a story in it. Well, I have been playing it for some year now and every time I play it, I somehow feel relaxed. Maybe because of the music as well as the achievement of beating my score every time I play.
So I have seen on my news feed that they already reached a million paid downloads and they are going to release some new songs. And I wanted to check them out fast. And they really released two new chapters. One is free, and one is paid.
Chapter T or names as Timeline is a series of song composed of Video Games Opera which has a basis for the history of Taiwan from the first six musics and the rest a little bit fictional.
I love how the story evolves from finding a new home, nurturing culture and humans ended up destroying the place they are living in and at the end, they try to revive it after a calamity strike them down.
Music wise, I find the music comforting on Penglai Movement and A New Home. It feels like that I was playing a really nice tune after a long time.
And by the way, after the first Try on Penglai Movemtns, I already had a million Master award from it. Though it was just on the Easy part. I haven't tried the hard part because I wanted to check the music first.
What I loved on this chapter is all the songs from Chapter 1 to 10 are present, and I must say, the remixes as well as the revamps on the songs are really good. Though the only let down was that, there are hardly new songs from it. But I am not complaining.
If I have to choose a favorite on this Chapter, it could be "The Sacred Story" which has a nice Greek feeling to it because of the narration of a story which was clearer this time plus the Saika feeling it gave me as well as Sanctity and Riddle Story on which by the way are all my favorites.
So I tried playing it and here was my score.
I know that I should have gotten a better score in this one, but I was really amused and started to think of a great "Sacred Story" based on the music while playing resulting that I was not able to see all the points I have to tap.
I might really consider to write a story based on the music when I have time.
Overall, playing these two new chapters brought me great joy, even though on Chapter M, some songs are already used, it could always be a good thing sometimes through the different talent of the composers.
A good story behind a good music is all that matters in this game. If a picture can say a thousand words, then I could say "A music could always say a million words worth of story"
