Beginning game/music concept

Hello all, 

This is my first experiment making a game for one of my songs. The idea is to have a fully playable level that has a common feel, vibe, or theme that goes along with the song. I'm still learning the mechanics and physics of game programming, so this is just a "rough draft". Regardless, I want to document process online!

The song, sound effects, and programming were all created from scratch. I used random mega man sprites to give an 8-bit NEW feel. 

The song is Become What You Are.
