Space Explorer Polaris has finally launched into space, with the aim to push the sonic boundaries of traditional 6581 SID music.
This project is the solo effort of C64 SID remixer Pawel Osmolski, and after a month of preparation, the result is something fresh, hypnotic, yet blissfully nostalgic. Staying close to the melodic haunts of Rob Hubbard, Jeroen Tel, and likened to the softer side of famed electronic composer Richard D. James. Please prepare yourself for take off and enjoy your flight!

Even little girls are getting old one day. Once upon a time, in 1987 to be precise, we played around with two cute girls on C64 and Amiga: The Great Giana Sisters. A great jump 'n run game in the style of Mario, featuring fantastic music by sound magician Chris Hülsbeck. Now, 25 years later, a new game with the twin girls has been released. After a successful Kickstarter campaign Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams was brought to life by Black Forest Games. With music by Chris Hülsbeck himself, Fabian del Priore and the metal guys from Machinae Supremacy plus awesome graphics where you can switch fluently between the beautiful landscapes and dark places this download title captured our hearts by storm.
Episode #158 - Tribute to Psygnosis, Part 2: Racing on top of the PSone
Hello and welcome to part 2 of our journey through the beautiful sound universe of Psygnosis games. We're moving on and crossing the timeline when the boys and girls from Liverpool switched from Amiga to console gaming, especially the PlayStation. For example, they created WipEout, the first new media sensation which made video games interesting to a broader audience.
On August, the 22nd of 2012, the SHADOW OF THE BEAST (Sony) fell over Sony Studio Liverpool, better known as Psygnosis. After producing AWESOME games for 28 years the MENACE couldn't be stopped. Game over for a company who wrote a big chapter into the book of history of computer and video games. BitFellas says
thank you for creating and publishing milestones like Lemmings, Barbarian, the Beast trilogy, WipEout and many more gems, including some of the best box art of all time.
A new giana sisters game, Project Giana is on Kickstarter and still needs some funding. The game will include an original two-layered score with fresh music by Chris Hülsbeck, Fabian Del Priore and Machinae Supremacy.
New uploads to Remix.Kwed.Org will be disabled for the month of August 2012, to give the staff a well-deserved break.
Upload your work before July 30th 8AM (CET) to have it processed before the break.
