Tis The Season For Japanese Chiptunes And Sound Shapes DLC

December 20, 2012 - By - Tags: ,

First thing’s first, got another Kickstarter to be mindful of: the Nubuwo Winter Bundle. For just $10 you get over 200 primo audio cuts, from various indie games (including Hotline Miami and Faster Than Light) and chiptunes complications. Though the real star of the show is the FAMI-MODE 2012 DVD.

The dvd is set to contain live performances from Omodaka, Professor Sakamoto (both of whom I’ve talked about in past updates), Kplecraft, Ashtray, and SEXY-SYNTHESIZER. With less than a week to go, it’s only a little over the halfway mark towards meeting the goal, so it definitely needs all the love it can get!

Speaking, I’m a big fan of both chiptunes AND Christmas music, and tis the season to enjoy both. The following is a live performance of one of my favorite mash-ups, courtesy of Hally. It’s Xmas Song Megamix (Plastic Sputnik Arcade Punk), which might recall from The 8bits of Christmas, though its closer to the version found on Holy 8bit Night

And finally, instead of just listening to seasonal chiptunes, why not create your own? Which is now made all the easier, thanks to the just released Holiday Sound Pack for Sound Shapes
