Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!

For the month of January we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 178 people to reach our January goal of 3,000 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in February!

Made this bad boy for Pixel Day 2019 baby.

Doesn't exactly fit the restraints of NES/Gamboy style 8bit, but doesn't have the same instrumentation freedom of the SNES or Genesis. I used almost exclusively 8bit shit (square and triangle waves, noise for drums) but I surpassed the NES limit of 4 channels playin at a time and also added some effects like reverb, delay, and EQ i think. So it's right in-between I'd say.

Tell me if this songs a stinker lmao

I used the Magical 8bit plugin: http://www.ymck.net/en/download/magical8bitplug/

I also used Keyzone Classic for a smidge additonal instrumentation: http://www.bitsonic.eu/keyzoneclassic.html

And Dexed, since I mean thats based on Yamaha DX7 thats 80s close enough right: https://asb2m10.github.io/dexed/

Sad gamer hours.

A bit too sharp at parts, but still flows.

I got no complaints except for the fact that the pitch feels like it's piercing my ears at some points. Still, I love it man!
