8-Bit Jesus: Retro Gaming Christmas Music

Posted by | December 26, 2008

One of the many joys of running wild on a popular blog site is that I get to introduce thousand of people to my own personal favourite things. You might have noticed I’ve a bit of a fetish for retro gaming from the old NES era, and I’m not alone in this strange desire. The good Doctor Octoroc has thrown together a collection of Christmas carols, mixed in the 8-bit style like all good video game music should be. The result is 8-Bit Jesus: Classic Christmas Songs in the Style of Classic NES Games, and why are you still here reading this? Go! Go now!

Okay, maybe you need more convincing.

Here’s why this collection of video game Christmas music kicks ass; the songs aren’t just some remix of carols with bleeps and blurps in for the notes. Oh no. These are done up in the style of various games, and let me tell you, you never knew just how much Carol of the Bells sounds like Castlevania music before. Also, you can download the songs individually, in a pack, or you can order yourself a CD of the music with a donation to the Doc. It’s good stuff, go get it.
