Gaijin Games have also just announced that they'll be lending their sponsorship to Blip Festival 2009, a popular chip-tunes music festival in New York. It seems after using various chip-tunes composers in their popular Bit-Trip series of WiiWare releases, they're now looking to give a little back to the genre of music that's played such a prominent role in their titles.

Gaijin Games is proud to announce our sponsorship of Blip Festival 2009! As huge fans of the chipmusic phenomenon, we figured why not do our part and support the New York-based festival this year to show our appreciation for all those chip musicians we love to love!

As you know, we've collaborated with Bit Shifter, Bubblyfish, and Nullsleep on BIT.TRIP BEAT, CORE, and VOID, and we're looking forward to continuing that tradition as the series continues. Our sponsorship of Blip Festival 2009 is one way of giving back to that creative community that we so admire.

If anyone out there wants to offer their support to The People's Fund to Support Blip Festival 2009, head over to kickstarter and back the project!

We're working on some pretty cool ideas for the show, and we'll keep folks posted as the festival draws near.

Continue rocking on. Over and out.

It's pretty stupid on iTunes though, the prices of the 10 seconds music is the same as the real music clips... You can be stupid by buying the whole ost for 9 euro, or just buy the first 5 real songs for 5 euro. It's almost a scam for people who don't enough attention if you ask me.

Excellent it's on iTunes, I really didn't want to sign up for a 3rd music download service just to get this.

Just don't "tilt" your steering wheel to catch the oncoming beats. They're more likely to be other vehicles...

Never played the games, a little too hectic for my taste, but I'll give a listen to the preview songs on iTunes.

Too late Phil. I already took out a line of cars on the expressway earlier today while jamming to Growth. It's alright, I explained it to the police officer. Anyway, I'll likely be out of jail by Friday, so it's all good.

I may pick up the actual CD. Then rip it and feed the tunes to Audiosurf.
[Edit] Bah, download only. Still, $6 ain't bad. Plus, Spotify.
