[demo] Comaland by Censor Design & Oxyron

So r u all ready for the winning entry from X-Party's C64 compo? Well, here you go: Comaland by Censor Design and Oxyron. Winning over Booze's entry by a very slim margin and code-wise perhaps less impressive than that one, it is stunningly well designed and directed, and the oldskool-ish soundtrack is top notch as well.

[album] Chiptunes by Yerzmyey


I'm super happy to announce the arrival of a new Yerzmyey album! Clocking in at over 70 minutes, this lovely bunch of chiptunes made on Atari ST, Sam Coupé, ZX81, ZX Spectrum, and Amiga will make you move, whether you want to or not.



Grab the album now at yerzmyey.i-demo.pl.

UPDATE: You can now download the full album here.

[album] The Arrival by Warez Waldo

More FM goodies, this time coming from a Sound Blaster 16. "The Arrival" is the debut album of Warez Waldo, who is obviously no stranger to OPL3 synthesis. Leaning towards dark, quirky New House with heavy influences from early 90s MS-DOS games, this release is quite something.

Windows 93 Released

What is this, I don't even...


Enter Windows 93, an online, audio-visual, interactive HTML5/Javascript assault on good taste by French lo-fi genius Jankenpopp. Pure madness. And it runs LSDJ, among other things.

[album] Mist Slug by Zan-zan-zawa-veia

New Zan-zan! For realz! More beat driven than previous Zan releases, but still progressive as f*ck. Possibly one of the best chip releases this year.

Buyers get 20 minutes worth of bonus material, btw.


[demo] uncensored by Booze Design

Another prod from X-Party 2014. Booze Design brings us this stunning code fest, which took 2nd place at the C64 compo. Beautiful design? Check. Quality direction? Check. Never before seen effects? Check. It. Out.

[album] The Next Level by Jredd

Cheapbeats releases a new Jredd Megadrive/Genesis album, yay! If you've followed Jredd's work in the past (or this blog, as a matter of fact), you know what to expect... kind of. I don't think you're quite ready for this, because this truly is the next level of Sega FM music. Also, OMG that coverart.

[demo] Bee Together by Mahoney

Hiya folx, Ancient Wonderworld is back. Got a fair bit of catching up to do, as a lot neat demos and music releases happened over the course of the last week.

Let's start with a wonderful production from the master of SID vocoding, Mahoney. Released at X-Party 2014, it took 6th place in the heavily contested C64 compo.

[soft] YMDJ - Sega Genesis/Megadrive Tracker

After years of hoping for a native Sega Genesis/MD tracker, it is finally happening! Behold, YMDJ - an LSDJ inspired tracker that runs on actual hardware.

The tracker is currently at a very early alpha stage, but it already looks very promising.


You can download and try the alpha here. The development thread with latest updates and changes is here.
