A few weeks ago, we asked you to create Games Inspired by Music
-- chip music, to be precise, the old-fashioned computer-generated audio that's come into its own
as a creative medium. Safari Books Online
provided 30 days free access to a selection of game development titles, which are still available
for another week. In the last hours the entries came pouring in and we were in awe of the oldschool wonder!
We've compiled a shortlist of finalists into a Boing Boing Arcade: try them all and then vote for who should take home the top prizes, provided by Safari Books Online, and goodies from Gama-Go. The poll will remain open until July 14 15 at 11:59pm and we'll announce the winners on July 15 16!
Many thanks go to the chiptune and electronic artists who allowed us to post their music as inspiration to the game developers. And, of course, to those who have dedicated time and energy to creating the games themselves.
Shall we play a game?
