Singing text-to-speech with a bit of gameboy wannabe bleeps.

This song has a nice beat along with the bleeps.
I like it.

Of all game music, this one has to rate at the top of my list. Even if Darwinia didn't have much of a story, this song somehow bridged the gap between what the game represented and my imagination. It breaths a life and character into those little green darwinians, and it made me really want,to save them. Steller work!

After playing Defcon, I began mentally scripting a video every time I listened to this song. Someday I might actually make it, hope that's ok with tresk.

This song has become an integral part of the lives of many of my close friends. It was introduced to us by our one friend along with some other Tresk material but Pain Fade Down is the one that stuck. We listened to it at work almost every day, and since we worked in a LAN center (that had Darwinia) the music grew to become popular with many of our customers. One customer actually took the song and programmed a step chart for use with the Pump It Up dance game, which was later translated for use with the more popular In The Groove as we had an ITG arcade cabinet. Amazing and thank you.

In the infant days of Darwinian development (about when it was revealed that you would be supplying music), I found your then-basic website.

After listening to a few songs, I had to get them all. I listened intensely to your music for weeks, and I still do to this day (although not quite as often).

This one song, 'Pain Fade Down', however, has stuck.
It is pure electronical bliss.

Thank you!

do I hear an echo? ;P
I heard this song through darwinia, and was hooked, had to listen to the rest of your stuff. excellent work, your music lended so much atmosphere and style to darwinia, one of the few times I've been really inspired by game music that didn't come from square-enix

This is the absolute favorite of many people, mysefl included of course.

Love the song

As a big fan of "micromusic" I expanded my search for same kind of 8bit music :-P. Came across your website not half a year before Darwinia came out.

Have been listening to you music ever since, mostly @ work

'Pain Fade Down' & 'Schroeder's Failure' are my all time favorites.
With 'Sodium Sonet' & 'ie ahm robox' coming in close 2nd

I finally a video of Defcon using this, it's on youtube (I can't link to it.)

I have no experience with video editing, so it's likely lacking in some respects. I hope people enjoy it.

This is a really cool song and I really like it, though I never played Darwinia. What are the lyrics?


Oct 16, 2007 9:00am

Hee hee, I think I got it, it's just "Let your pain fade down", right? And sometimes you hear another voice which says "Let your pain, your pain".

I'm really bad at lyrics..

I love this music.
It remembers me the first days I was playing Darwinia.
How you can make music like this? MOD Trackers?

When you're playing Darwinia and the music kicks in you get this warm feeling rise up from within. Very special. Bliss!

Will any more of your tracks be included in future Introversion games, such as Multiwinia?

May 24, 2008 6:29am

Makes me want to play Darwinia again.

Oct 13, 2008 10:09pm

I love this track... I've just completed Darwinia and thanks for making your music free to download :)

the bleeps in this seem really clumsy compared to the more "sophisticated" sounds, but i still like it
