Chip tune artist Bill Kiley has not only re-imagined the music from Downton Abbey as a chip tune but has also created a video of what Downton Abbey would have looked like if it had been released as a SNES game. The song is available from his bandcamp page you can name your price for it (Enter 0 if you want it free and don’t want to support struggling artists).
I can totally see a game like being a hit if done in the style of Maniac Mansion…
I’ve been listening to a lot of chip-tunes lately mainly because I find that they oddly increase my concentration. Maybe it’s something innate in me that associates the stream of bleeps and bloops with playing really difficult video games?
Anyway the above album by Inverse Phase is a cover of Nine Inch Nails’ Petty hate machine and it’s pretty good.
If you are interested in more chip tunes it’s worth noting that 8 Bit Weapon have recently released a collection of all their music that isn’t licensed to other people for the low price of $20.
Also if you have played the amazing iOS game Super Hexagon, then you can’t have missed the awesome sountrack by Chipzel, which is available to buy for just £2.
