8Bit Scroller

2013-01-23 17:28:28

Hello Chiptune lovers! Yesterday I composed an 8-bit video game song called "8Bit Scroller" and uploaded to the playlist of World Worm Studios under the tab "video games". Check it out!

I have recently been making some Cubase 6.5 templates. So I can produce new compositions that sound like some of the golden age video arcade game music for my company website. For example, the Tomohiro Nishikado's 1978 release "Space Invaders", Sega's 1982 arcade game release "Super Locomotive", "Pacman", "Galaga" and so on. So how did I research for chiptune music? The best, fast resource for 8-bit video game music is Youtube. There is so much of it. It's amazing! I even found an 8-bit Gangnam Style video! Making some retro video game music should be a fun exercise.

Speaking of video games, the "GGJ" is getting closer! In a couple of days, I will be participating in the Global Game Jam 2013 at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU). I am looking forward to being a part of such a fun event. If you are interested to learn more, you can check out my GGJ 2013 blog here.
