Chiptune is Best Tune
Like me, some of you are gamers. And if you’re, um, of a certain age, there are few things that can punch you right in the pleasure centers like chiptune music. In the same way that the smell of cherry pie or salt air can bring a memory back with palpable force, 8-bit music has the power to invoke a sense of wonder and adventure in our kind. I have even been known to purchase entire games because I was hooked by the soundtrack.
I’m bringing this up because I just discovered Adventures in Pixels by Ben Landis. You can literally listen to this and do ANYTHING YOU LIKE, and still feel like you’re embarking on something grand. Crazy, I know. And as a bonus, you get a comic page for every track. That’s pretty cool, but frankly, I’m in it for the music.
Here’s a sample:
Thanks for making me smile today, Mr. Landis.
