My experience with the chiptune genre is pretty limited. I think the only music I had really listened to before now, besides actual “chiptunes” back in the day on old console and computer games, was the chiptune version of Nine Inch Nail’s Pretty Hate Machine, Inverse Phase’s Pretty Eight Machine. I think I was browsing the bestsellers on Bandcamp when I came across Chipzel‘s chiptune album for the popular rogue-like game Crypt of the NecroDancer, Chipped of the NecroDancer. While I enjoyed that album very much, it was listening to the rest of her catalog that I kept coming back to the album/soundtrack Interstellaria. As blasphemous as it sounds, I really like this album because the chiptunes sound is not quite as in your face, and the other work Chipzel has put into this album makes for quite an experience.
