The 8bits Of Christmas

The other day I was talking about a new Christmas album out called “8bit Christmas” and today I happen to stumble upon another great resource for holiday tunes done right called “The 8bits of Christmas” by 8bitpeoples.

This very special holiday release from 8bitpeoples features an allstar cross-platform lineup that is sure to make yours a truly chippy christmas indeed. Brought together from all corners of the globe, these 8 amazing tunes were composed by 8 dedicated chiptune maniacs on 8 different videogame consoles and homecomputers! Featuring the sounds of Yerzmyey on the Spectrum, Nullsleep on the NES, Vim on the VIC20, Paul Slocum on the Atari 2600, Bit Shifter on the GameBoy, Goto80 on the C64, Dma-Sc on the Atari ST, and Hally on the X68000, there is only one way to celebrate the holidays right this year, and this is it.

So I found this kool album 8-Bit Christmas you can get from RUSH COIL that not only lets you get your favorite Christmas tunes in chiptune form but all the proceeds go to the charity Child’s Play!

UPDATE: We’ve decided to donate ALL net proceeds from digital sales to Child’s Play! – a charity created by the kind folks at Penny Arcade. The organization presents hospitalized chidren around the globe with games and toys during the holiday season. This year they have raised over $1,000,000.

Its an 8-Bit Christmas!!!

Two of my favorite things are the Christmas season and 8-bit music and when I saw Doctor Octoroc was releasing 8-Bit Jesus I was pretty excited to get some holiday tunes 8-bit style.

I’ve been working on a new album for the past few months and am releasing a free MP3 download of the first half – sort of a preview, I suppose. The album is entitled 8-Bit Jesus and contains 9 tracks thus far. Each one is a chip-tune version of a classic Christmas song done in the style of a different NES game.

Make sure you jump over to the site and download the tunes to add a little geek to you holiday parties this season.
