Shoutout to Chiptunes

Chipzel on Bandcamp

I just wanted to post about how much I love chiptunes, and the whole scene. Especially Chipzel, who is my favorite in the genre. I bought Dicey Dungeons and The Crypt of the Necrodancer, based in large part on the music. Turns out, she was the force of nature behind both. Per my previous post on video gaming as I’ve gotten older, I’m terrible at Necrodancer, and I don’t think I’ll ever be able to master Dicey. But the music for both is just terrific.

I also like this chiptune station: http://hyperadio.ru:8000/live, but I can’t seem to find where I found it to begin with. I think it was an Apple Music radio station, from it’s internal listings, that I put in a playlist, but Apple took the listings out of the application. You can still add manual entries, and I guess I can see where they’re coming from, but I sure hope they don’t remove the ability to stream an internet station entirely!
