You can hear the roar of the crowd in your ears. The pulse of excitement. The power of the music. Plastic guitars. Hah. Who needs those? Instead, you pick up your keyboard, ready to slam out some face-melting chiptunes with the same keys that had previously only been used to type out boring emails and tax reports. Your computer was built to rock, and now it can thanks to Chiptune Champion.
Chiptune Champion is about using your keyboard as an instrument, strumming Enter as you tap keys to the beat of various chiptunes. You can fiddle around with the keys if it doesn't quite play to your liking, or grab your own songs and head into the game's complex track editor to create your own playable tunes. You can even share them with other players if you like via the Steam Workshop. You know you craved the moment where you stand before your friends and blast them with music from your keyboard. It's time to embrace it.
Chiptune Champion is available for $9.99 ($7.99 for launch week) on Steam. For more information on the game and Blake Garner, you can head to the game's site or follow them on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.
