Renegade 8's debut release is a mesmerizing nighttime journey through the seedy underbelly of chiptune. Pulling a variety of samples from the crackling guts of an NES, Renegade 8 uses these sounds to craft melodic, action-packed chiptunes reminiscent of side-scrolling beat 'em ups set across subway stations, dimly-lit streets and grimy alleyways. Do you have what it takes to make it all the way to Dark City in one piece?
