8 Bit Pack

There was a time in the mid to late 1980s when the Nintendo Corporation could have gotten away with writing us off as dependents on their taxes.  Babysitter, companion, role model – some of the many roles filled by an 8 x 10 piece of plastic with 2kb of memory and the processing power of a log.  Things have barely gotten better into adulthood.  Not the game technology – that’s progressed just as Moore’s Law promised – we mean our continued dependence on computer entertainment.  This pack is an homage to our childhoods and hopefully fills a void in the stock music market.

 

8 Bit Adventure
8 Bit Adventure
If this doesn't make you want to play a classic NES sidescroller you must be more than 32 or less than 23 years of age (as of this writing). I didn't realize Nintendo wasn't my babysitter until my late teens so the nostalgia at work here is staggering.

8 Bit Alternate History
8 Bit Alternate History
Imagine an alternate history in which 8 Bit synthesizers co-habitate with modern rhythmic ideas and production. This brooding and moody piece adds an element of darkness to the normally bright sunny world of video game influenced music.

8 Bit Slow Jam
8 Bit Slow Jam
The media would have you believe most gamers are manic, caffeine swilling, antisocial man children getting a buzz off of all the simulated killing. They're mostly right - but that doesn't account for such popular time sinks as Minecraft, the Myst series, various Sim games and the like. Some people play video games to relax. This track would be the perfect background for one of those relaxation sessions.

Overworld
Overworld
This is it! The classic top down view! This is the music that will haunt your adventures. The perpetually looping, saccharin dripping, sweet safety of the overworld map! Everything is possible until RANDOM ENCOUNTER!!!! This piece is straight 8-bit, ripped straight from the circuits of an NES cartridge.

Digital Sludge
Digital Sludge
Grass World? BORING! Water Level? YAWN! What do gamers want? That's right! A sludgy grungy industrial level. Toxic water (because it's green) Crushing Pistons, and bubbling oozes abound. This synth heavy piece brings the catalog into the more refined and ultimately doomed 32 bit era. This downbit piece is slightly melancholy, but is ultimately versatile as pollution breeds jazzy drums! What a convenient truth! TAKE THAT AL GORE!

Atomic Age
Atomic Age
Plumbers, hedgehogs, and green-capped elves step aside! A new hero is in town. Made of gears, metal, and upgradeable laser parts, our atomic age hero enters. Geiger counters, turned synth will bring you through this retro character piece of a world dependent on technology. I think you'll like it, but what would I know? I'm just the robot that writes the site.

8Bit Fusion
8Bit Fusion
They say the great Japanese video game composers of the 1980s and early 90s were heavily inspired by jazz fusion. It just so happens that we are too. Technical virtuosity never sounded this smooth. Picture this music keeping your reflexes sharp while playing a vertical scroller. As each solo piles one on the other scores of enemies intensify the assault until you get the ultimate power-up and complete your domination.
