We’re excited to be a part of Boing Boing’s chiptune inspired game competition.
From Boing Boing:
We love chiptunes, the quirky celebration of 8-bit-style music that’s become a a vibrant genre of its own with a thriving scene supporting it. The compositions evoke a time when electronic musicians had to make the most of the limited resources offered by primitive computing technology. Keeping that fire alive, the latest compositions are like the soundtracks to vintage videogames that never existed.
As teased last week, we’re joining with Safari Books Online, the massive online library of technical know-how, to honor the mighty chip in the form of a Game Dev Challenge. Your task is to make real the imaginary games embodied by chiptunes.
Now, technically any chiptune can be used for part of the competition, but we feel like we’re a special part of it since we were mentioned on the site. Fun times.
Fusing epic, addictingly hummable melodies with funky bass lines and driving beats, our debut EP will surely move you. Grab your NES and dance.
