One of the worst feelings in the world: Seeing a chatroom jumping with activity, saying something, and the chat just fucking goes dead for seemingly no reason. I have to assume it's me, even if it's not. So I left a buncha communities. Take care.


Garden Forgotten by Time (Castlevania: Lament of Innocence): One of my favorite songs from the game. I actually enjoyed the 3d ones (This and Curse of Darkness) quite a bit. I'd love to be able to play them again someday. Currently playing Bloodstained.


New Album "Ad Lib - Volume 9" has been released. 10 tracks, free to download. Some pretty solid songs I feel. Had a lot of fun towards the end. Hope you enjoy. Bump 1/3


Lost in Fear (2022): Newest song from me, Alphadeus! I think it came out pretty neat. 2 more songs and I can release an album, which is great because I need possible buyers to buy my stuff :p If not, I'm sure I'll be fine. Hope things are well


I think the FFXI "Return Home" campaign ends today at around 11am eastern. I'm contemplating tossing them at least 1 month sub, and I want to do a world transfer. After reading up on it, I'll probably move to Bahamut, as Asura is very crowded.


Waking Nightmare (2017) [Raptor Lancer]: One of the coolest songs I've ever written. You ever fall asleep and have a dream loop of waking up over and over, trying to get out of bed, but it all being a dream, only to find yourself still in bed? It's crazy


Eternal (2022): Threw down this jam earlier today to try to break my streak of not writing music for almost 2 months. I have a lot of inspiring sounds to look through. Just need to get back on the composing horse ;)


Caedarva Mire - Final Fantasy XI : I forget the actual name of this song. Spoilers(?) for Treasures of Aht Urghan zone. I think this song is really spooky, and even at the original cap of 75, the zone itself was scary for different reasons. Good stuff.


Omicron (2011) - One of my favorite songs from the album "From Alpha to Omega". It uses the "A Well-Known Stranger" melody, and it's quite an energetic piece of music. It's definitely one of my proudest achievements. FFXI is a jerk, see comments :p


Omega (2011): The final track of my second album "From Alpha to Omega" where I wrote a song for each letter of the Greek Alphabet. This song is meant to represent hopelessness and despair. I share these songs because I don't want to be forgotten.


Paranoia (2019): From the album "Madness". Not sure what to say about this song. I really like the drums throughout. Got some spooky sounds :p I'm a pretty paranoid person. I feel like I inherited it from my father. If something is odd, I back away.


Last Words of a Dying Man (2019): One of the few songs I've written that can make me emotional. Originally written for a scene where the hero is saying goodbye to a long time friend. It's not a very complex song, and it's kinda short. But it still hits.


Kauzality: I believe this was the 3rd song I wrote for the original Songs for Gamers (known as Destructoid Community Album back then) in 2011. This is when the idea "clicked" and I wrote a ton of great songs for it (the first two songs were replaced).


One To Be Feared (2016): This is somewhat of a sequel song to Corrupt Leader of the Free World. I like the piano lead, and the use of horror sounds throughout the song.


The Corrupt Leader of the Free World (2014): I'm not a very political person, especially when I wrote this song for a scenario of a very evil leader abusing their power and causing mostly negative things. The hero would have to overthrow the leader.


In Your Base, Spaceship (2012): 2012 was a VERY experimental year for me music-wise. I was trying to find my own unique sound, and that would be synth heavy songs with simple melodies. This song is a good example of the kind of music I write.


A Simple Town (2019): One of my biggest weaknesses in making music, is that I don't vary up the instruments much, if at all. This song has what I call Voice Changing, where the melody alternates between two instruments, like a duet of sorts.


Remembering Childhood (2018): I originally wrote this song back in around 2002 or so for a game project that was never finished. This was back when I played the parts live and layered them to make music. I've since started punching in notes manually.


AIRBORNE (2019): From CHIPS II, this song has an unusually high number of views, and I'm not sure why. It's a good song, but my stuff rarely gets even 30 views. I'm wondering if people searched for something else & found this. Stick around for the middle!


Am not drunk. Is no Bueno. Car won't start. I think it might be a dead battery. Hopefully it's nothing worse. I am tired of asking for money what seems like most of the time. Been playing No Man's Sky. Fun game :) Hope everyone is doing well.


Fairly recent picture #SelfieToid ... hair is being pressed down by my headphones. I need a haircut but I don't want to go outside :P Hope everyone is doing well.


Abstract ~for Orchestra~ (Classic): as mentioned before, Classic indicates that I do not know the year I composed it. I think 2005. Anyone up for an AMA? I doubt there's interest at 4:30am but hey you never know :p Hope you're enjoying your morning/evenin


Looking Back (Classic): Songs labeled classic are songs I don't remember what year I wrote them. Looking Back is one of my favorite songs. I wrote it on the piano and I believe I performed it in this version. The song is about remembering the past.


New Album "CHIPS V" has been released. 10 tracks, free to download. This time around I went with no limits on the instruments used in each song. They probably sound more aggressive. Only 1 Bump!


About Alphadeusone of us since 4:33 PM on 04.02.2012

I am Alphadeus. Local gamer and music writer. I've written over 800 unique original songs, many of which have remixes or rearrangements.

I have written music for over 140 people in this community in the form of "Songs for Gamers" albums, which are on my Bandcamp page. They definitely show off my range of genres.

I have been here a very long time, since around 2008 or 2009. I did not start blogging until 2010 or so. I nuked my original account, so a lot of my history is gone, but I've been back for a while as well.

I play casual games mostly. Bejeweled, Final Fantasy XIV, Animal Crossing, Diablo III, and others. I'm 40 years old (as of 2021), and have been playing games most of my life since Atari 2600.

I highly recommend you check out my music sometime. It's the best part of me. It is mostly in the style of video game music, but I mix it with different genres.

Thank you for taking the time to read my Bio.
