Music Development


For the game My Life My Love, Ginji Ito wrote his compositions on sheet music paper and sent it to Winky Soft, in which their programmer Masahiro Sho implemented the songs into his 6502 assembly sound driver that utilized the Ricoh 2A03.

Adventures of Tom Sawyer uses a custom sound driver, so it is unknown how the music was written, but it was most likely either in assembly or Music Macro Language.
