It’s a rare game that credits the composer as a co-developer, but that’s what you get with Spectra, an overhead racing game that’s set to a chiptune soundtrack created by Niamh “Chipzel” Houston (best known for her work on Super Hexagon).

Prepare to burn your brain this weekend with the neon-rimmed raceways and chiptune soundtrack of Spectra, which is now available for the Xbox One through the Xbox Games Store.
In Spectra, players whip down a procedurally-generated track as the game’s chiptune soundtrack pounds out of the speakers. Fans of video game music should especially pay close attention to that sound, as the game’s tunes were composed by Chipzel, the same musical maestro behind Super Hexagon.
