The collection has a variety of tracks and also includes some sound effects and short clips for transitions between scenes. The instruments mostly use the piano, the drums, and a synthesizer.

Anyone making an RPG, visual novel, or other game would find the tracks useful. They cover a range of different tempos that match different environments, time, periods, regions, and scenarios rather well.

The quality is good and maintained even after compressing and or converting to different file types.

Really professional looking backgrounds at huge bargain.

I think that I counted 13 unique images and each has 8 different renders which provides variety in lighting.

A little disappointed that all of the doors are closed because I like to use "click" functionality to open them.

Some scenes in the gym look very 3D, where others have a more traditional 2D painted look.

Overall, the value and quality are very good.

I have bought collections 2, 4, and 5 from Kannazuki, I think, and this collection is just as good as the others.

There are 30 tracks, so to pay about a $1.00 per track is really a deal. They are better quality than a lot of custom soundtracks that I have heard for import games.

The trial represents the product well, so download that first if you have any reservations. I went through and renamed the songs and if I had to make a word cloud to describe the collection, I would say, "Piano, classical music, daily life, resolution, happy, sad, ballroom dancing, samurai, anime, upbeat".

There are also a few foreign sounding tracks. One sounds Middle Eastern and the other sounds Irish. There are no horror tracks in this collection which was a bummer, but most people probably don't need those like me.

-- One day when I woke up, my girlfriend had turned into an alpaca!!

I have to admit that watching an alpaca talk to you in human clothes with a cartoon voice is amusing, though I did mute Yukari, the alpaca, after about thirty minutes or so.

The visual novel has two or three different points where you can make a decision to change the story. It has a gallery at the end to let you know whether you've gotten all of the CGs.

This was translated by the doujin, so the translation is difficult to understand at times, so beware the warning on the product's page. Ultimately, it's light and fluffy, so if you like games like that, it may be of interest to you.

The ending that I got actually left me wondering what really happened, but I think I know...

The walls actually have a lot more detail than what appears in the preview. I thought you may be able to treat it as a 3D environment, but you will have to fade in and out if you use it for navigation, as each single step was not depicted. You could make a decent maze out of it. Both "new" and "destroyed" backgrounds are made available, so that may help to advance the story of the game that you may be making.

So, it's kind of hard to know what you're getting from the sample art.

A lot of Murakumo's work is similar where the detail is somewhat inconsistent. Although most of the work is complete, small parts of it look unfinished, or maybe a little smudged. It's hard to explain, but you'll notice if you look at the furniture or the airplane propeller.

It's good art. The city scene is a little disorienting, but it's still pretty cool. The airship is marvelous, but you should know that there are characters painted into the cockpit.

Other than a few jagged edges here and there, it would serve most indie game makers well.

It's a decent set if you need something for a science lab. It has a creepy underground feeling to it because it is all in unnatural light. The detail is actually pretty good. There's a ton of stuff in the scenes, and I don't really know what a lot of it is because I'm not that much of a science person. The style is consistent among Murakumo's other work. It's painterly, yet similar enough to other typical backgrounds that you could probably mix and match without people noticing.

I bought the hospital set, so I also decided to grab this as well for a few filler scenes that I have.

Overall, I like them a little bit more than the hospital series, just because they seem a little bit cleaner, and with better line quality. However, some parts of the backgrounds, such as the curtains in the bedroom stand, stand out to me as slightly unfinished.

Also, you can probably tell from the pictures that the lighting is a little too bright in some backgrounds. Also, the saturation may be a little too high in a few of the scenes.

However, they are still very nice, but have a few rough spots, so I just gave it a 4 out of 5.

Also, I should mention that the scenes are somewhat more painterly compared to some of the other backgrounds that I've downloaded, so the style remains consistent across products.

Hospital - Mostly Outside the Hospital Room

This set has 6 unique renders. I also bought the other hospital set to make a more complete hospital scene. Most of the renders have morning, day, and night renders. However, the food tray render only has one (probably morning). There are also renders of the roof, break room, stairwell going up, waiting area, and a stairwell (downward perspective).

The style and quality vary slightly throughout, but most people probably wouldn't really notice.

I bought this package for a game that I'm working on about a woman who has a daughter with selective mutism.

It has 7 unique backgrounds with morning, day, and night renders.

1) looking down hospital stairs
2) hospital break/park/outside area
3) from hospital bed looking out window
4) from hospital bed looking at the entry door
5) looking down a hallway
6) from hospital bed looking at ceiling
7) view of different hospital beds from entrance

The quality varies between backgrounds. They almost look like a combination of 3D, photo manipulation, and 2D painting, and filters.

The lighting is a little off in some scenes, and some of the paint strokes are very painterly, leaving some scenes looking somewhat unfinished in some parts, but it's really more of the style I think.

Anyway, for the price it's still a deal.
