Quote from: buzby on May 26, 2022, 03:12:09 PMJonathan Dunn originally wrote it for the C64 version, which was then ported to the Gameboy. He infamously got nothing out of it being licenced by Ocean to Ariston for their 'Cycle' ad campaign - his MU rep reckoned he'd missed out on £100k of royalties for the 2 years it was used.
Quote from: The Culture Bunker on May 25, 2022, 09:10:48 PMIs Out-Run too obvious a shout? I'm not sure how many games had the music as much an element of the experience before that. I liked the re-recordings from the 'Coast2Coast' sequel as well.

Quote from: Mister Six on May 27, 2022, 05:48:24 PMThe "playable in a normal CD player" thing reminded me of this banger, from the original GTA, produced in-house by Rockstar's Craig Conner:
Quote from: prelektric on May 27, 2022, 06:12:05 PMThis title piece for Robocop was my earliest absolute love for a piece of chiptune, albeit on the 128K ZX Spectrum's AY chip. Sometimes I'd wait for the game to load, just to listen to it without even playing the game. Jonathan Dunn indeed got completely shafted over it. It's an intensely melancholic work and rather incongruous to "Robocop" as a theme, but glorious all the same, and uniquely for a chiptune has the power to make me well up, if I'm in the right frame of mind. The Gameboy's chip version was my wake up alarm on my phone for many years. Utter classic.
Quote from: Mister Six on May 27, 2022, 08:33:49 PMWeird, I don't remember it being on the Spectrum version at all, but there it is. I remember a digitised Murphy doing the directives at the start, so I can't have been playing it in 48k mode...
Quote from: The Culture Bunker on May 27, 2022, 08:06:37 PMHard to pick, but I think it'd be 'Magical Sound Shower'.Even the titles alone evoke a strong nostalgic reaction in me.
