Not quite chiptune but rather a track inspired by it. The genre is called chiphop, looked it up. It's a thing, promise. Writing was a last minute decision, started late afternoon Thursday evening because I really wanted to participate in Pixelday.

Played with my user icon in Gimp to have a custom Pixel Day avatar. Isn't she pretty???



Soft reminder to check out my bandcamp page. Pick up a 2Q4U hardcopy. Also, stay in school, don't do drugs, always seatbelt, and don't run with scissors :D

Feeling this too! That Chocobo just made it happened. Great sound!

Quarl responds:

I worried the chocobo sample might disqualify the track for Pixel Day running but made the decision to keep it because I felt the same way you do. I love chocobo.

Really feeling this!

Quarl responds:


This is phenomenal. This is incredible work. Keep it up :)

Quarl responds:

Many thanks Harku!

Oh yesss, I love these bitcrushed drums! I really like the bass pattern too, as well as the chiptune-y sounds sprinkled around <3 Nice pixel art as well, it looks like one of those pixel murals people paint on tiled walls. Happy pixel day!

(I feel bad because you leave really long reviews and this is all I could come up with lol)

Quarl responds:

Lol, I love leaving long ass reviews. Just want to build up good vibes and get everyone to achieve their best possible sounds <3 <3

Another nice track.
I love the vibe on this.
The amalgamation of the 8bit/SID styled sounds with the modern sounding breaks/drum patterns
is ace.
The nice twinkly/arpy pad sounds running throughout are really nice.
Nice use of unusual chords and chord progressions too.

Quarl responds:

Happy days Qshunt. Thank you for the positive feelings :D
