For those of you who don’t follow our Twitter feed or our Facebook page, we’d ask that you do because honestly we’re far more prolific there than here. But, for those who just check in to the Bleep Bop website on a daily basis: here’s an update!
One of the most innovative NES homebrew games we’ve ever seen was released last month, Tailgate Party, where you can play cornhole against the computer or friends using the forgotten NES peripheral: the Powerpad, and our own Zi composed all the in-game music for it! Cornhole, for those of you who live in LA or NYC, is a game where you drink, and occasionally try to throw a bean bag through a hole on a board. Check out our soundcloud account for the tunes and the link above to purchase!
Zi has written the intro for the new NES homebrew podcast called The Assembly Line, hosted by Kevin from Khan Games and Beau from Sole Goose Productions, both NES homebrew powehouses. If you’re here, you obviously love NES homebrews and should be listening to every ep! Also in the podcast realm, music from our catalogue was featured on a Kickstart for VGBS Gaming Podcast Season 1 cartridge, a physical copy of Kyle Gilbert and Jeffrey Wittenhagen’s podcast!
What’s on the horizon? There’s a new album in the works, as well as continuing two different homebrew projects (one is a fun take on a NintendoAge thread gone awry and the other is a port from a classic Windows game). Hey, it’s summer, roll down the windows and blast some 8bit music!
