How To: Make a Ruined City RPG Theme in 5 Minutes || Shady Cicada

► Full song example at - 1:22 [Song Name: Purple Moon]

You know what's sad? A ruined city level. The only thing sadder is possibly recognizing the city. But there is no musical atmosphere that plays throughout these areas are definitely something else. Having a song that fits with a vast/destroyed/deserted area really puts you in that surreal and lonely mood. Sometimes the music itself can give you hints as to what might have may even foreshadow plot points to come! And as a result, we're making a Ruined City (or just ruined area in general) song! Here is "How To: Make a Ruined City RPG Theme in 5 Minutes". I hope you enjoy!
