1. Reed Countermelodies

The title track from Minieval, created by Aaron Friesen. It attempts to explore a few countermelodies with both woodwinds and pitched percussion, throwing in some strings for suitable levels of epicness.

2. Test Melody

The first of the in-game tracks, created by Jackson Herman. It features a solo piano with some rhythms that inspired the title track.

3. lmao i guess i write slow sadish stuff now

The second in-game track, written by Jackson. As the name might suggest, it features some slow, minor piano and string melodies.

4. Dingalings

The third in-game track, written by Jackson. It features the onomatopoetic xylophone.

5. i really gotta think of actual names for these things

The fourth in-game track, written by Jackson. This marks a pivotal moment in the development of the soundtrack, at which Jackson began to question his naming scheme.

6. Nice and Slow

The fifth in-game track, written by Jackson. The title speaks for itself.

7. When the City Builds (idk i never played the game)

The sixth and final in-game track, written by Jackson. It really makes you feel like you're building a city.
