Laura Shigihara's "Melolune"
« on: November 04, 2009, 12:14:33 AM »
Many of you may be familiar with Laura Shigihara, whether it be her
Plants vs. Zombies hit song
or her vocal in Quintessence's ending theme, Drift.

Her RPG, Melolune (formerly known as The Blue Star) is now released (as an entrant to the IGF competition). You can download it here:
www.freebirdgames.com/shigi/Melolune.exe

For additional information on the project, visit her game's blog:

(P.S. She wrote a fantastic original soundtrack for it as well!)

It's largely revamped, with new mechanics (with music-related game-play components) and improved everything. See for yourself. c:

I'll definitely have to download this. I was just replaying the game not too long ago, and I'm glad she's finished it.

Oh, cute! I love this . . . I was sad when the demo ended . . . :(

I remember playing this when it was known as Blue Star, I loved it really. Though I felt some of the battles were too hard. XD

The music is beautiful also. Definitly worth the try for those who haven't played it before, or are still deciding.

I'm too tempted to download it judging from the screenshots but I'll wait till it's 100% complete.
