Aydan Appreciates: ‘The Best of DDRKirby(ISQ) – Volume 2’

Posted by

DDRKirby(ISQ) has composed an absolutely obscene amount of quality tunes over the past decade and a half, and is a long-standing member of both the OCRemix and chipmusic communities. Predominantly composing music for a series of themed game competitions called the ‘Ludum Dare’ series, DDRKirby(ISQ) and friends have created dozens of these small, entertaining, browser-based games. With this competition being held once every six months, a colossal amount of material has been composed; DDRKirby(ISQ) has graciously compiled what they consider to be their best hits over the past few years.

Yet somehow, there inexplicably remains an unexplored dark void in the space themed chiptune compilations quadrant.

Until now.
