Lucky Kat Studios releases Nom Cat with Beatscribe Sound and Music

I am back from hiatus to announce a new game just released with my productions. We are approaching a cat singularity on the Internets. And with good reason. Cats are awesome. Nom Cat is a new game from Lucky Kat studios where you have to feed our furry friends and help them avoid bombs. The game has a variety of backgrounds and lots of cool items you can buy to dress up your cat (I love the fro particularly). The gameplay is simple but harder than it looks initially.

For the music we mostly used the DMG-01 chip from the gameboy but added a few more layers than you’d get out of the real gameboy. One of the challenges was creating an accordion sound for the France level in 8-bit chip limitations. Since the accordion is a very imprecise instrument, it helped to use multiple pulses with different attack rates at different octaves. It gave it that slightly ‘sloppy’ feeling that defined such a organic instrument like the accordion.

The game also includes avatars of famous instagram cats, check #instanomcat to see all the celebrity cats available. Some of the proceeds also go to help cat charities, so you can’t go wrong with this! Get this game right meow!

StarTales Interactive Releases MegaBird with Beatscribe 8-bit NES Soundtrack

Screen Shot 2015-04-08 at 10.58.37 AMThe Flappy Bird styled app has been providing tons of simplistic fun for a while now. It’s cool to see some new games that expand on the original formula. Megabird is one such game. It includes bosses and other features you don’t always see in these kind of games. For the soundtrack, we went straight to inspiration from one of the classics, Megaman II. It’s clear that the creator was heavily inspired by the classic genre on this game too. Check it out today!

Play Pacman On Google Maps

Screen Shot 2015-03-31 at 4.03.12 PMI just stumbled onto this, no idea how long it’s been there. There’s a little pacman icon when you’re looking at google maps. Click it and your center square becomes a playable pacman map. My neighborhood wasn’t too exciting of a level but I bet downtown would be.

I love that google does stuff like this. Like the April Fool’s 8-bit map. They don’t take themselves too seriously and embrace our nerd culture!

Gazzapper Games releases Super Box Boy with Beatscribe Tunes

I’ve been working with Gazapper for a while now. This is probably our 4th title together. Gazapper continues to bring us classic feels from the 80s and 90s consoles on our modern phones. You play Super Box Boy who must rescue his lady box freind from the clutches of an evil box factory.  Super Box Boy has the look and feel of something straight off the gameboy DMG01. It’s also has that deceptively simple appearance that Donkey Kong has. It looks simple, but its not! It’s a great trip down memory lane and will get you addicted quicker than you think. Pick it up today [play]

Free OST for Chesslike by Beatscribe Now Available


Moore Interactive has really created something cool with Chesslike. Imagine a game of chess, but instead of a square board, you have a dungeon-like maze from Zelda. It’s a novel idea but it plays out really nicely. Some levels pit you in a maze filled with enemy pieces, others put you in crazy scenarios like 2 queens vs 10 rooks. It’s chess like you’ve never played it. As you move thru the levels you encounter more interesting scenarios. You will come to dread what I call the “knight mazes” – just crossing a room to get a key as a knight requires some serious thought. Fortunately, the difficulty is well-balanced and never overwhelming.

Screen Shot 2015-02-24 at 12.47.14 PMFor the music of Chesslike, we create some light medieval-themed chiptunes that with a soft edge to them. It’s a little lighter than the standard Beatscribe tunes. The soundtrack is free right now on band camp. Go grab a copy!

Imagos Software only has about 48 hours left to raise at least $2,000 on their kickstarter for an amazing game that combines SCUMM elements with SHMUP fun!

As chiptune fans, not only do we have a possibility of getting an awesome game for PC, Mac and Linux (possibly the consoles should they hit their stretch goal), but the possibility of getting almost 4 albums filled with chiptune regulars like Alex Mauer, Bright Primate, Cheap Dinosaurs and more should they reach their stretch goal.

It’s definitely worth putting some money towards. The T-Shirt is really slick looking too.

Show your support for retro gaming goodness today and get in on this awesomeness.
