It fills me with DEE-LITE™ 39F Pride Fluid to announce that I have produced my first video game soundtrack. The game is The Indie Game Legend, by Paul Hubans. It is an homage to The Guardian Legend (NES, 1988), and a satire of the social scene among the higher-profile developers on the TIGSource forums. The music, tuned to Paul's vision and direction, is mostly pseudo-chip rock inspired by the original game.

Download The Indie Game Legend to experience all the emulated old-timey goodness you can handle:

I have made the tunes themselves available as well. Find them in the projects section as usual.

I plan to write more soundtracks as the opportunities manifest. Keep synced.

For a while, I've had this odd relic lying around. It's a pack of Nintendo Game Pack cards, made by a company called Topps back in 1989.

They're not exactly trading cards, but more of mini-games in card format. You scratch off bubbles to "win" a fight of some kind, modeled after any of the then-popular game franchises. Thrilling!

Unlike video games, you can't try again if you lose. By playing at all, you also lose the cards' collectibility value... if there ever was any.

My copy of Norrland arrived! This is a game by one of my favorite game designers, Cactus (aka Jonatan Söderström). I payed for one of the ten physical copies on auction to help him continue to make games.

In Norrland, you go on a hunting trip and do all sorts of "backwoods" things: kill stuff, drink beer, row a boat, sleep and have nightmares, take a shitzo, even hump some bears. It's more vulgar and satirical than his previous games, but still seizure-inducing and otherwise in character.

The disc also came with a bunch of unreleased games he's made, plus some other goodies, such as... a personalized coffee filter!
