Very nice Atari XL demo

August 18, 2010 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

HAI :) This is my first big (as well as oldskool) demo for 8-bit Ataris. Graphics and code were done by me and really nice (controversial) music was done by Miker. Enjoy this little (85 KB) production which were first presented at Głuchołazy 2010 Atari Party.

Arman Bohn‘s Atari 2600-inspired “Bits” album

July 29, 2010 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

The video to “Brain Games,” the third track from Arman Bohn‘s Atari 2600-inspired “Bits” album, was created using drawings made on a Nintendo DSi. These elements were combined with traditionally-shot footage in After Effects, resulting in a monochrome 1080-line-high heap of pixels.

    8bitpoeple :-)

    8bit_graf.gif

    Came across this tremedous 8bit site the other day. Here you will find a veriety of new fresh bitpop tunes. This how the 8bitpeople describe themselves and their mission:

    The 8bitpeoples first came together in 1999 as a collective of artists sharing a common love for classic videogames and an approach to music which reflected this obsession. Our primary interests were to provide quality music for free and most importantly to have fun. In the years since, we have grown in rank and expanded our goals.

    We continue to provide the vast majority of all our releases for free, including printable covers and inserts so that anyone with the desire to can “manufacture” physical copies of our albums. Furthermore, limited runs of most of our releases are available, offering superior sound quality to the mp3 releases and occasionally bonus tunes.

    In addition to our continuing devotion to music, we now have a research & development division dedicated to the creation of software, construction of hardware, and dissemination of documentation related to our cause. Our love for the audio/visual aesthetics of early videogame consoles and homecomputers continues to provide us with the drive to push the medium to its very limits, and then see just how much further we can go after that … you know, just for fun.
