Chip Tanaka’s New Chiptune Video Directed by Legendary Creator of Undertale #MusicMonday
Chip Tanaka is a true great of chiptune. He made the soundtracks for Metroid and Donkey Kong, among others. Undertale is one of the most innovative and most influential indie games of all time. They’ve made a video. Here’s more from The Verge:
The black-and-white video looks a bit like a 16-bit era game, with Tanaka walking to a performance where he’s joined, naturally, by some hammerhead sharks onstage. Things only get stranger after that: there are walking UFOs, floating faces, and all manner of odd imagery. The fact that it resembles a video game shouldn’t be too surprising; Fox says a lot of the scenes were made using the game creation tool GameMaker.
