Mah mind is blown!

I remember getting Sweet Snow to start playing in the main hub of the game after beating it...
I remember thinking "CRAP!... Why did I explore this area from head to toe BEFORE I got this song!?" >:(

Well, time to start burning this song into my mind.

I'm only two minutes into the song and have a ridiculous grin plastered on my face.

SO AMAZING!

What a gorgeous song made even more gorgeous! I can't believe it's been such a while since I've been here, but the second I found this twitter update and heard the song, well let's just say that may have just kick started my NiGHTS obsession again! This is just amazing! :)

Wow, this got me really astounded.

But there's something that catched my attention...

Cameron Strother Said: I recorded it a year or two before NiGHTS was released... I had seen the secret last boss.


Wait, how is that even possible? He saw the game one or two years before it was released, did SEGA have all the characters designed in the year 94/95? (Speaking of that last secret boss)

Was he speaking about Selph?

It would be interesting to ask him a few things about what he saw in the game's development...

And here I thought that I was going to have a bad day today.

Unfortunately, I can't find words to describe the happiness and nostalgia that I feel right now.

I always thought the old adult version of this song was cheesy while the kids version was cute, but this version definitely feels more sweet and sincere.

I'm glad to hear all our hard work was worth it and that you're all enjoying it! (And yes, this is Josh btw.)

I was one of the back-up singers on the recent OCRemix Lucid Dreaming release group sing-along track "The World is Dreaming", (and previously fandubbed the opening and ending to Christmas NiGHTS back in 2009) and the idea popped into my mind while recording my part on how cool it'd be to have something like this happen, especially since I had gotten in touch with Cameron and we had discussed what it was like to live and work in Japan for an extended period of time. So during one of our e-mail sessions, I asked if he'd be interested in doing this project, and he jumped right on board saying it was one of his fave songs!

Now as you in the Music section of the forums know we wanted to get this out a year or so ago, but things kept popping up that prevented it, and it was only in these last few weeks that we could really hanker down and get things done. We knew we wanted to make it meaningful, and what better way than as a tail-end for the 15th anniversary of a truly dreamy game?

Cam and I originally set out to have this done for Christmas, but obviously that didn't happen due to schedule conflicts and mixing problems. Given that, we instead made it a goal to release it before the year ended as a nice way to close out the anniversary year. Since there is some minor audio issues here and there (but they're not really hearable unless you're an audio perfectionist), I may go back and refine everything into a much better mix sometime in the future.

I'm very grateful to Cam for lending his time and effort in this project, as I wasn't even sure he'd say yes. Luckily he did and now all NiGHTS fans have a nice belated Christmas present to help kick off a new era of dreaming. Hopefully this helps the game get more wide recognition and re-ignite interest in the series among fans new and old.

Thanks everyone for the positive feedback, and its nice to know our favourite Nightmaren is still so beloved.

See you all in the NiGHTS!

Unbelievable. After 15 years, Elliot and Claris duet once more. The last bit of the duet kills me of just how bloomin' amazing it is (the portion right before it goes into a smooth cello solo and closes).
Thank you very much, Cam ; )

And, ooo, Cam's seen Selph? =O

That was actually my first feeling as I read it. Since we're not sure...
Was Wizeman ever intended to be secret?

It's a secret to everybody.

Maybe it was one of those "secret at the time" things?

I love this song. Cameron's voice is very beautiful, I've been listening to his other stuff as well

It sounds like him

He also did a couple of tracks for the Nintendo DS video game "The World Ends with You". Here's one he did fully in Japanese!

Hey, it's Josh again. I know its been a while since we released the song last year before 2012 hit. I'm also happy to see NiGHTS be re-released for the current-gen consoles (I'll be downloading it for PS3 myself when I have a spare moment)!

As a bit of a belated follow-up, I was thinking of interviewing Cameron on what he's done since first singing the song all those years ago. Would anyone be interested in that?
