Chiptunes = WIN: Volume 4 [Tracks 16 – 20]

Posted by

Describing the next five tracks from our 4th compilation album is a lot like plucking five roses from a stunning bouquet, or stacking five bacon pancakes onto your plate from a pile fresh off the griddle: you can’t go wrong, and they taste even better with syrup. (Chiptunes = WIN does not endorse the practice of eating syrup-coated roses. Chiptunes = WIN does, however, heavily endorse bacon pancakes.)

Volume 4 is a gathering of the best from all corners of the community. There are only beacons of chiptune mastery here, and though your personal tastes may steer you toward some songs over others, each track is a curated experience, and all come highly recommended.

Without further ado, I am honoured to bring you Chiptunes = WIN: Volume 4’s tracks 16 through 20. Come listen!

The Unicorn Princess Royally Reviews ‘The Valley Rule / A Kitty Dream OST’ by Bill Kiley

It’s a pretty beautiful thing when you find a new, gorgeous, and nostalgic game that’s got an equally gorgeous soundtrack to match.  West coast composer and artist, Bill Kiley, has teamed up with artist and developer, Ryan Carag (who goes under the alias of Raiyumi) to create two games: The Valley Rule and A Kitty Dream. Both games use two different approaches to create a unique package of visuals and audio: surreal and eerie concepts of exploring a dream world for one and being trapped levels below life for the other, both containing atmospheric pads and sound design teamed up with chip sounds in complimentary ways.
