Glooms Rocked My World

Here are some pics from last week’s Chiptune Showcase. Seems like I was mesmerized by Glooms fiddling with the analogue visuals. Someone needs to make a GIF of the CRT screen changing!

KipJaw [MI] (https://soundcloud.com/kipjaw)~~
~First there were Commodore 64, Gameboy, and NES consoles used to make chiptune/8-bit music – but then, powerful computers and new age music production software emerged. Equipped with his favorite music tracker, KipJaw blends elements from both of these technological worlds into a unique atmosphere of nostalgia~

Glooms [SEA] (https://soundcloud.com/glooms)~~
~Using a wide arsenel of retro hardware, from Gameboys to the Sega Genesis, and killer software, from Ableton Live to Nanoloop and Piggy Tracker, Glooms delivers tunes that can only be described as dark, deep, cave, shiny mineral chiptune.~

Nikola Whallon [SEA] (https://soundcloud.com/nikola-whallon)~~
~In the year 199x, Nikola was born of two dragons into the age of the SNES. His love of SNES, N64, and Gameboy music would have such a great impact on the child’s life that when he came of age, these feelings of love and nostalgia would fuse and give birth to music that has the power to bring out the child in anyone.~

~{headlining}~ Graz [SEA](https://soundcloud.com/grazcore)~~
~Rapid-Fire-Amen-Infused-Mashcore Federally Certified to Crush Any Party, Graz is here to take you to Bootleg Babylon. His glitched out high-speed rave renditions of radio’s yesteryear are the perfect blend to get any crowd bobbing. Prepare for the true sounds of the plunderground..~

Starr Mazer – Kickstarter Project
YouTube Preview Image

Local Seattle indie film and game studio, Imagos Softworks, has put together one of the most insanely cool Kickstarter projects I’ve seen in awhile: Starr Mazer. Seriously, you gotta check this out!!

Starr Mazer blends two classic genres, the Point-and-Click Adventure and Classic-style Shoot ‘Em Up, into a retro-sexy sci-fi epic with modern design sensibilities, open-middled gameplay and RPG elements.

The game will feature a collection of talented chiptune artists from around the internet, including Alex Mauer, C-Jeff, Cheap Dinosaurs, Ctrix, Fighter X, Nickelpunk, Phlogiston, Sabrepulse, Virt, and more! If you thought this couldn’t get any better… all supports within the first 72 hours of the campaign will receive the “Zero Day backer poster with gold lettering and fancy boarders”.

The project ends on Feb 21st and is asking for $160,000. For $30, you will get the game, digital art book, and digital soundtrack (limited $10 savings). Hurry up and become a backer!

Fighter X live @ the Game Awards 2014
YouTube Preview Image

If you happened to watch last month’s Game Awards, you may have noticed a suave DJ dancing around with two brick-like objects. That guy looks kinda familiar… yep that is in fact our very own local chiptune superstar Fighter X!

Nick was asked to fly out to Las Vegas to perform during various transitions throughout the 3+ hour show. For those interested in seeing these moments, I’ve cut a video highlighting Fighter X at the Game Awards (above). Also, check out some screenshots (below).
