Brian from the band I Fight Dragons generously made a tutorial that explains how to create your own chiptunes (music made on old videogame soundcards). And so there you go. If you make anything cool from this knowledge, feel free to share with the group.
Morning music: Radical 16-Bit Music Video Pays Homage to the Sega Genesis
This is “My Mega Drive” by 2080, a righteous little love letter to the Sega Genesis (known as the Sega Mega Drive outside the U.S.) in the form of a catchy chiptune song and 16-bit music video.
Aside from references to great games like Sonic the Hedgehog and Gunstar Heroes, there’s some slick-yet-subtle animation sequences like when the protagonist pushes up his glasses and pumps up his kicks before unleashing huge attacks.
This needs to be a game NOW because I’d play it in a heartbeat.
