What do you think of this little piece of heavy music for Anime and Indie Games (more emotional)?

    Hello guys!
    I would like a quick opinion from you, what do you think of this little song designed for Anime and Indie Games (those that are more emotional and usually 2D)



    By the way, if you need music for your games just send me a message!

    What you have there is a single phrase, and after repeating
    G Bb G C G F with 3 different instruments it ends incomplete, and it feels like there should be more. Instead, there's nothing.

    I'd recommend to check out following soundtracks for inspiration:

    Umineko no Naku Koro ni Soundtrack:

    Blazblue Soundtrack:

    Nier Automata Soundtrack:

    And final fantasy:

    And for fun, there's Kiffens, which had a lot of compositions based on unexpected sources:

    Thanks for the comment!
    The Nier Trail is excellent, I've been playing it recently and it's really something unique.
    As for my music, its goal was never to be a complete work, as I said in the text it's just a small piece, a DEMO, so to speak.
    If you want to analyze something complete, (which I would greatly appreciate since you seem to have some knowledge of music) I ask that your opinion on this other post I made, it is a complete song, different from the DEMO of this one.

    By the way, the chords transit between G#, Bb and Cm, with some variations.
    (Ex. Gm/Bb, Cm/G#, among other variations of Ninths and Sevenths).
    Despite being a repetition of some chords, the objective was not to create something splendid and innovative, but to explore the instruments and vocals in this sequence.
    As you said, the main melody remains the same, but each instrument there has its own melody that if you don't listen carefully you end up not noticing.
    (As they are secondary melodies, the objective is precisely for them to mix and become something more ambient, something that you only notice if you pay attention).
    But again, thanks for the comment, I'll listen to the references and hear Nier's again haha

    I agree with neginfinity- it sounds good, but it doesn't resolve. It sounds like it's leading-in to something. It could be a good intro to something- like maybe after that some drums kick-in and it's all rock-and-roll.

    As-is, I imagine you could probably use it for something short and transitional, like a loading screen or the start menu.

    The instrumentation is well-balanced, with the drums and guitar providing a solid foundation and the piano and strings adding a layer of atmosphere and emotion.
