26: Lonesome Journeys

A hero’s journey can be lonely. Think about what it was like to start a new game, see your tiny sprite on the map screen for the first time and then wonder about what all you might be doing in this new adventure. This episode is all about music that captures that feeling: being a little excited, being a little lost, and feeling all the freedom of setting off on your own.
