'Magic Pockets' has a lot of the exact same sprites as the game 'GODS'.

Also, pretty much all tracker music crushes 90s PC midi into the dirt. Of course, modern midi is another thing entirely.

Magic Pockets!! Pretty deep game once you start playing around with trapping monsters in the large tornados. You need a guide to work out how to get the best powerups and uncover the secrets though.

Then of course there are a few more recent tracker formats that incorporate stuff like VST support and internal synthesizer engines too, like BeroTracker's and Renoise's formats, though I'm not aware of any games using those for music.

He uses the MiSTer FPGA with whatever core corresponds to the system he is playing.

Big Jeffrey!

Hope you and the fam are doing well, dude. Great to be back on those Old Games again!

Also I need a loop of Jeff saying, "You're a good cat" to his cat.

@hansgr00ber: The song came first, the Bitmaps just licensed it. Bit like what they did with Xenon 2 and Bomb the Bass. If you're British and of a certain age you'll recognise Magic Pockets as the game kids used to play over the phone on the ITV Saturday morning kids' show "Motormouth".

Xenon 2 was also used as a phone-in game as was Weird Dreams, despite being completely inappropriate for Saturday morning TV.

I've not seen anyone directly play Renoise songs within a game in the same way that happened on the Amiga, though that's certainly possible for simpler songs. But the open nature of the file format means that you can use the tracker data to drive certain aspects of a game, which is something that has been happening.

Like a lot of people, I have that same mic Jeff does. Anyone know if that kind of windscreen works well? I couldn't really tell from Jeff's stream.
