Our very own Prowler is doing a kickstarter campaign 25 Nov. 2015 19:07

Prowler launches kickstarter book project: The Masters of Pixel Art



The goal of this project is to create a book to present a selection of the very best pixel artwork in an exclusive production. As additional content, many images are presented with background information, comments by the editor and in-depht stories from the artists themselves.
The pixel graphics that emerged in the late 80's and the 90's beginning has inspired and created a sub-cultural era of pixelled art. This book is an attempt to capture the style and soul from that period of non-profit fellow creativity.

The Masters of Pixel Art book specs:
- 200 pages, covering 48 great pixel artists.
- Over 350 selected pixel images.
- Dimensions: 24 x 30.5 cm (9.5 x 12 inch).
- Quality product: durable hardback cover with textile finish, highest quality paper.
- Kickstarter acknowledgement - get your name in the book as an official backer!
- Clean design and layout.

DE streams going offline. 25 Sept. 2014 11:52

Because of private reasons, the DE streams are going offline (maybe for a period of time, maybe indefinitely).

Due to that fact, we are now looking for new relay providers. If you have a server running linux and have enough bandwidth to waste drop us a line.

From this point i would like to thank Locutus for the many years of support he has given us in hosting nectarine and the relays. Thank you!

Cheers!

NEW RELEASE: Super CJ Land - Welcome to my TinyWorld 20 March 2014 16:45

flagcyborgjeff writes:

Hello dear sceners, i'm proud to let you discover my new project : Super CJ Land - Welcome to my TinyWorld.

This new CD album includes 34 tracks written around the concept of Chip & Tiny music. For sure you still know lot of them here in Nectarine ;) But there are some new one and also never released tracks !

Complete album in Streaming in SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/cyborg-jeff/super-cj-land-welcome-to-my
Also available on BandCamp: http://cyborgjeff.bandcamp.com/album/super-cj-land-welcome-to-my-tinyworld

Quote: "Super CJ Land : Welcome to my TinyWorld is not just a simple album about Chiptunes nor an album composed with GameBoys, this is a trip in Cyborg Jeff land with all those simple sounds and miniaturation competition from that universe. Tools have changed during this project ! You'll hear tracks wittten with the Farbrausch FM synthesizer well known in Demoscene world but also mood of the mythic C64 and some tracks sounding more Amiga and Nintendo Video Games. I'll hope this diversity will let you enjoy this album !"
