This week, TrueStar talks about a sekrit project she is working on that will be on display at MAGFest’s Indie Video Game Showcase. There was also lots of cuddling in the chatroom during the last track. Many pillows were hugged.
TrueStar is back from her final undergraduate semester. She’s finally made it and now
has a bachelor of science in chemistry! With her new found free time, she starts getting caught up with all of the music she’s found with a new episode of Noise Channel!
After suffering through taking the GRE yesterday, TrueStar cracks open a hard cider and playing some chiptunes.
TrueStar discovers that naruto, one of her favorite chiptune artists, is back in business and will be performing at Square Sounds in Tokyo. He contacted her on Twitter and directed her to a website including his music tracks featuring Aya Futasuki.
We’re very excited that naruto is involved with chiptunes again and we hope he keeps making music!
TrueStar talks with C-Jeff of Ubiktune and Erik Umenhofer from Firebelly Studios about their upcoming game, Temporus. They answer questions from the listeners as well as TrueStar about the game and its kickstarter campaign.
At the end of the show, the Kickstarter met 50% of its goal! It needs all the support it can get in the final stretch. If you love sci-fi, traveling through time to exact revenge, and platformers…not to mention fantastic art and music, support this game! You can check out the Kickstarter page here.
This week, Noise Channel goes back to Japan, specifically Kyoto and the 1H1D group. Someone requested that we do another show featuring Japanese chiptune artists and we are happy to oblige! TrueStar was also unhappy with the way some of the people in the US chiptune acted this past week – which she talks about on the show.
So…whatever. We’re going to Japan.
If you like the tracks from this episode, you can purchase 1H1D’s albums on their Bandcamp website.
TrueStar relaxes with some empanadas and Nugget after two weeks of high energy listening parties. The Shovel Knight OST has been number one on Bandcamp for an entire week.
It’s been a great summer so far. Happy 4th of July!
We’ve made it to 100. In truth there have been more than 100 episodes, but we’ve messed with the numbers to line it up with this very special occasion.
We transported out equipment to Yacht Club Games and broadcast the show from their office. Earlier that day their first game, Shovel Knight, was released to the North American public. We were there to celebrate of the game as well as the released of the OST and arranged album by Jake ‘virt’ Kaufman.
Sean Velasco and Nick Wozniak from Yacht Club Games join TrueStar and virt to talk about Shovel Knight and its soundtrack. It’s also a very long episode at five hours, so get comfortable.
You can purchase Shovel Knight right now on Steam, Wii U, or 3DS for $15. You can download both the OST and arranged album on virt’s Bandcamp site. Both albums are price as ‘pay what you want’.
Thank you to all of our listeners for supporting the show all the way up to the 100th episode and beyond! We love you!
***Yes there is an episode 99.6. It was not archived per the artist’s request.
TrueStar dedicates most of the show to The Sound of SceneSat Volume 3. The 89 track album is a variety of music from the demoscene. You can get the album here.
We’ve selected chiptunes from the album to share with our listeners. We also held an impromptu Mario Kart 8 tournament. The top three racers at the end of the show were:
Somehow, we managed to get to 99 archived episodes. It’s been quite a fun adventure so far. Look forward to episode 100 with the release of Shovel Knight! Of course that means a listening party for the soundtrack. We might have to mess with the number a bit, but it will be on the 100th episode!
