News Submissions / Re: Chrono Trigger Remake Concept
« on: September 13, 2020, 10:44:17 pm »
I'm very opposed to a Chrono Trigger remake, as I'd prefer something new to be done with the IP rather than yet another "enhanced" version of Chrono Trigger that they repeatedly screw up time and time again. But your idea sounds pretty much flawless.

I think my one thing with orchestra music though, is as cool as it'd be... Chrono Trigger's music was never intended to be orchestral, but rather a mix of genres. For example, the main theme may sound orchestral, but has a saxophone lead. Wings of Time, Secret of the Forest, The End of Time, and many other tracks were also intended to be rather jazzy. Corridors of Time also will need that same arabian ambiance as the original piece. Undersea Palace, Last Battle, and Zeal Palace all prominently feature synths. I think the Malcolm Robinson remix albums are great examples of how I'd imagine a Chrono Trigger remake to sound - also some works from Time Rock Orchestra such as "Memories of Green", "Last Battle" and "Ruined World" help capture the spirit of the original well. Orchestra definitely would sound impressive, and there definitely would be some orchestral tracks. Magus' Theme would be incredible with orchestra, and plus the wind and laughing sound effects would be incredible. Peaceful Days would be a soaring symphony of peace, and To Far Away Times... Oh man, To Far Away Times would be out of this world. But even still, I feel if you want to truly recapture the original's music perfectly, you have to include that mix of genres that the original game had. I mean, just imagine hearing Secret of the Forest's juicy bass with real instrumentation! And if some little things get changed along the way, such as Secret of the Forest becoming a little more orchestral in style (As that's how I've always personally imagined it) I would still be down for it.
Again, check out Malcolm Robinson's Chrono Trigger: Orchestral Selections albums, most of his tracks absolutely nail how a Chrono Trigger remake should sound. Though of course, the remake would use live instruments rather than computer-based samples I'd imagine.

Also I'd want to make sure all the characters and stuff are based on the og art and sprites, NOT the PSX cutscenes (Since as you may notice with characters such as Azala and Lavos have a lot of changes when you compare Toriyama's original art to the PSX scenes), to get the perfect recreation of the original. And I definitely like the idea of switching between the original's graphics, music, and whatnot with the remake, also being able to turn off/on voice acting.
I think it'd also be cool if you could swap between the original SNES and the remastered DS versions of the script. Just so you can experience both translations. And of course, keeping the combat and top-down perspective would be essential.

So overall, sounds really good! Just wanted to suggest some little things that I think are important.

Here, I'll get the most popular stuff for ya right now, I'll try to get the rest at some point soon

Peaceful Days https://tprpiano.bandcamp.com/album/peaceful-days

Chrono Trigger the musical: (This is a playlist, each song has a download link which you can paste into the section of the respective song on the OST - it's not done yet so there may be more songs to include in the future) https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLU-TFjG0qugDt0qSNyhaKHnfbo8oi-5gJ

And I'll link Jonny Atma's stuff so you can put it in here.
https://www.jonnyatma.com/world-revolution-last-battle/ (This should lead you to a download link for his remix of World Rev and Last Battle along with a download link for his beautiful acoustic remix for Outskirts of Time)

https://www.jonnyatma.com/battle-with-magus/ (This also has two download links - the second being a short piano cover of part of Wind Scene/Yearnings of Wind/Whatever)
PPF's stuff is harder to get since it's all singles and no actual albums - and time rock orchestra doesn't have downloads apart from patreon
I'll try to scoop the rest up and maybe some more too for you at a later point, but this is the stuff I wanted most for now. If you need help identifying any tracks in songs from "Epoch" or "Chrono Cinematica" or just anything at all, let me know.

There seems to be a lot missing about remixes in the song sections. I would edit it myself but no idea how. Idk how out of date it is for Chrono Cross, but here's a list of  popular remix albums I have not seen included for Chrono Trigger
.Chrono Trigger: Orchestral Selections, Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 (Malcolm Robinson, 2015 and 2019 respectively)
.Peaceful Days - TPR & Roxane Genot (2019) (Also TPR's Chrono Cross arrangement album probably isn't listed here either)
.Chronology: A Jazz Tribute to Chrono Trigger (OC Jazz Collective, 2016)
.Epoch: A Tribute to Chrono Trigger (Materia Collective, 2019)
.Chrono Trigger: Orchestral Arrangement (2019)
(Also the accompanying Chrono Cross: Orchestral Arrangement - same year)
(And also the accompanying piano duets)
Chrono Trigger - Music Box Collections (Materia Collective)
Chrono Trigger - Piano Collection (Materia Collective)
Chrono Cinematica Remastered (2020, but the original album is mentioned somewhere... I think)
And some other remix artists I have not seen mentioned at all -
PPF
JonnyAtma/GaMetal
Time Rock Orchestra
String Player Gamer (I think?)
Chrono Trigger the Musical/Man on the Internet

If there is any way I can help update the music sections please let me know. Otherwise, would someone be so kind as to update the music section?
Can't confirm tthis one, but maybe Sean Schafianski as well?

As some of you may know, the Japanese anniversary of Chrono Trigger is today.
I made a little tribute video to it, including the results to the poll I made a little while back. Enjoy!

This sounds really cool! Wouldn't not being actually locked out of Zeal undo the need for the Epoch, though?

Zeal.
All of Zeal.
The musics tracks, the cities, the characters, everything.
Zeal is what defines Chrono Trigger for me.

Fan Art / Re: Lavos (one eyed tick), you wanted a 3D Mammon machine?

Hold on... structures with Non-euclidean details? That's a very H.P. Lovecraft thing to do, and Lavos and the Mammon Machine are at least partly inspired by H.P Lovecraft's work.
Maybe I'm overthinking this, but it seems really cool

If they don't screw up character designs like the anime cutscenes (Lavos, human Glenn, and Azala come to mind), I'd be fine with that

Wait hold on... YOU'RE Time Rock Orchestra? Dude I love all your stuff! I'd definitely play a version of the game with your awesome remasters if it was played!
