Album: Heosphoros – Neither Moon Nor Star

Heosphoros is back with more sublime chiptune prog metal, his first solo EP in 10 years – Neither Moon Nor Star. Writing for the NES’s 2A03 and VRC6 sound chips, he commands a strong melodic style that often channels a darkness and tension not always associated with chiptune. With distinctive artwork from Keff and a use of atmospheric and authentic samples, this is an otherworldly chip metal odyssey to get lost in. Join the quest of a man looking to black out the skies and kill the concept of ‚dawn‘.

Retrolike PC-Game: Jetboard Joust (WIP)

Jetboard Joust is an intense, old-school, arcade-style SHMUP in which you must master a vast array of ridiculous weaponry in order to defeat a race of evil aliens who are intent on abducting your babies and turning them into mutants. Jetboard Joust is the sequel to James Closs‘ 1989 Spectrum, C64 and Amstrad title ‚Skateboard Joust‘, making it arguably the world record holder for the longest time between a videogame and its sequel. The game will hit Steam and Nintendo Switch during 2020.

Retrolike-Switch Game: Reventure (2019)

Reventure von Pixelatto ist ein recht neues Nintendo Switch Spiel (9.99€) im Retrostil. Die Pixelgrafik ist sehr minimalistisch und erinnert schon nahezu an diverse PICO-8 Spiele. Du bist ein Held, der heroische Dinge tun sollte, aber am Ende doch wieder etwas anderes tut. Alleinstellungsmerkmal in diesem nichtlinearen Abenteuer sind 100 verschiedenen Enden, langweilig wird es also eher selten. Habt ihr keine Switch? Kein Problem, gibt es auch für Steam (4.99€). Das Spiel ist tatsächlich etwas… anders. Seht euch der Einfachkeit halber am besten den Trailer an!
