Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon Gets The NES Treatment
Posted by Damien McFerran
Classic rock album is re-imagined on the vintage 8-bit
Pink Floyd may be a band that your dad was into when he was younger but that doesn't deny them the privilege of being one of rock music's all-time greatest acts, and their magnum opus The Dark Side of the Moon still sounds amazing even today.
But you know what would make it sound even more amazing? If it were re-done using nothing but the NES sound chip.
Video game programmer Brad Smith obviously thinks along these lines too because he's recreated the entire album in chip-tune format, and named it Moon8. "No expansion chips were used," he proudly states. "This album works entirely within the limits of the standard North American NES." Peachy.
