8bitLA Presents HACK THE MULTIVERSE – One Week Away!

8bitLA Presents HACK THE MULTIVERSE is only a week away! Our special E3 event is a 3 stage extravaganza featuring 20+ artists & bands performing chiptune, electronic, indie, nerdcore, video game music, and everything in between! It’s like the mega evolution of all of our (sometimes) monthly event, Hack the Planet, and we all know that mega evolutions entail all sorts of badassery and sometimes include cybernetic enhancement chips, so it would be silly of you nerds not to show up 😉

Soundtrack Lineup Announced for Music Puzzler ‘Chime Sharp’ – And it’s AWESOME

Publishing studio Chilled Mouse announced the soundtrack lineup for the upcoming music puzzler game Chime Sharp (or ‘Chime#’) today, and it’s pretty fucking awesome.

chimesharp

Grabbing a variety of artists involved in the electronic, experimental, and chiptune music scene to provide a brand new ambient and engaging playlist for the project, the music sequencer/Tetris puzzle game challenges players to rearrange blocks to be read as notes, which in turn remixes the melodies into energetic dance pop tracks.

The game will include 15 levels, with 15 new songs by the following artists:

I told you it was rad.

Expect to see it on Steam in late June!

Tapioca – Punimelt and Slime Girls Collaborate on Sentimental Animated Short

Toronto based artist Punimelt combines elements of inspiration, girl power, and teenage daydreams in her animated short TAPIOCA. Her heartwarming and surreal animation combined with dreamy and uplifting music from Slime Girls (Pedro Silva) makes watching Tapioca something like floating in a bubblegum cloud somewhere deep in the mind of a virtual pet.

Tapioca from Michy Soong on Vimeo.

Punimelt’s shop and portfolio are filled with soft and whimsical treasures that you can check out HERE! If you want to see her designs irl, you can catch her at Anime Expo  – Los Angeles Convention Center, Otakon – Baltimore, Maryland, and Otakuthon – Montreal.

Claycat’s DOOM/DOOM: My Pet Cacodemon

Lee Hardcastle collaborates with Bethesda and id Software on this bloody gore filled, but funny clay animation of Doom with the Claycat character. There are tons of nostalgic moments from the original game as Claycat blasts his enemies to the intense metal soundtrack from the new reboot, including stages, weapons, and those damn demons!

I love how the Claycat’s facial expression is similar to Doomguy’s, and his cute voice says”mew mew” many times in the video.

The other animation Lee worked on is an odd, 30 second clip of Doomguy feeding a pet Cacodemon and riding through Mars on the beast. Any 90’s young adult who installed the classic on every Windows 95 PC and spent hours on it will truly get a kick out of it.
