CulturaChip MicroCompo Master System

Another defying and exciting compo comes from the worlwide alliance for retro-arts supporting in spanish/portuguese speaking countries, mostly known as CulturaChip. This time, Sega Master System sound chip, the SN79489, is the target of all aims.

With the help of Delek’s emerging multisystem tracker (other plattaforms were of course allowed), Deflemask*, 4 chippers among CulturaChip held a fight against the limitations of this chip to get the hack right on the spot.

Conceived by Sergeeo, organized by Rolemusic, and aknowlegded in the community forum, this compo started few weeks ago, with a deadline for track submitting from February 22th to the 29th of the same month. After the sonic harvesting, a voting were open to all the members of the forum from March 1st to March 3rd. Now the final score is out and the voting results are:


1)Death on the battlefield…..rolemusic…….58
2)Happy ending……………..sergeeo/yzyx*…56
CC CompoSN79489*
3)Lonely Robot……………..Pak-Zer0……..49
