The Music of Dragalia Lost

Recently I've been playing through Dragalia Lost, a game by CyGames, who also happen to develop the game Granblue Fantasy which I've also been playing. The game is published by Nintendo making it one of the more odd but welcomed. The game features real time dungeon crawling from an overhead camera where actions can be done by tapping and swiping the screen, your typical fair of this type. What drew me and kept me in the game was the music though. A good majority of the music is done by DAOKO, a Japanese singer/Rapper.

Funny enough, digging through my iTunes collection, I happened to have a hand full of songs by her which were in the game. I had both Cinderella Step and Moshimo Bokura ga GAME no Shuyaku de in my collection and didn't realize it till it came up on random play one night. Cinderella Step was used on the main screen up until a recent update (or maybe some point in the story). Even hard to catch was Moshimo Bokura ga GAME no Shuyaku de because they only use a short instrumental segment during the quest screen. Apparently they didn't stop there. The Gacha uses the song Bang!. The initial pull uses a drum segment found in the middle of the song and the point where it's showing pull type uses the refrain.

So far the following is what I've found. I've linked to the original Music Videos if I found them:
Main Title Screen: Owaranai Sekai de
Main Menu (prior to update/or quest): Cinderella Step
Quest Screen: Moshimo Bokura ga GAME no Shuyaku de
Gacha: Bang!
Certain Dungeon Music: ShibuyaK
Certain Boss Fights: Samishii Kamisama
Certain Boss Fights: Ryusei Toshi

The track Owaranai Sekaide will be released in the album Shiteki Ryoko releasing November 14th.

Starting Over

It's been quite some time since I worked on my blog. I've had to abandon the original site, much to my embarrassment because I couldn't get into the back end anymore. It's bad when you can't remember not only the back-end password to the CMS but also the database password to unlock it. I've decided to go back to WordPress mostly because I don't have time to build out everything by hand that you have to in Umbraco. I'm not a designer so I realized really quickly I was out of my depth there. Funny because I enjoy working in that environment at work but really don't have the drive to work on it during my free time.

I've also decided I needed to change the name of the site as well. Polygonal Neko is the new title of the website. The idea comes from my character in both Final Fantasy XI and Final Fantasy XIV. I tend to play a cat person whenever it's possible when playing games. Even if I have to mode it in such as in Fallout or Skyrim. I'll most likely post about games but may delve into other technology or other interests as well. Hopefully I can stay on top of this unlike before and I'll continue to add other features when I can.
