Inflate Me to the Moon was originally made in 72 hours for round 44 of Ludum Dare. The theme was "Your Life Is Currency", and we ended up making a very silly game about "inflation".
This soundtrack is rife with references and call-outs to various 16-bit games, and was composed using samples from the referenced soundtracks.
The entire game, soundtrack, and art were all produced within the 72-hour timeframe. Below are the estimated working times (based on FL Studio project files) for each track, sorted by order of production. Note that some of these numbers are a bit inflated because they also include time spent doing voice-overs.
In the Year 20XX + Rockin Plan: 2 hrs 29 mins
MoonBound: 30 mins
Super Inflation: 1 hr 2 mins
To a Far Away Moon: 39 mins
Underdetermination: 15 mins
Fly Me to the Moon (DDRKirby's SPC Mix): 37 mins
Total: 5 hours 32 minutes
