Joseph Fitzpatrick Very entertaining and well-crafted release! I love the mood and nostalgia. Favorite track: Congestion.

Alpha Chrome Yayo Hi-BPM, chip-laced synthwave with lovely crunchy SID-chip tones that scratch a proverbial itch you didn't even know you had? HELL YES.

'Upgrade' is an album that revels in creating an experience, from its thrilling concept (that could be straight out of an R Talsorian TTRPG sourcebook), to its many colours and textures.

It's not nostalgia for the sake of it; instead this is a celebration of slick tones, storytelling and badass cybernetic adventure.

Take me to the arcade and bury me in WOFS.

Jake C. The fusing of dark chiptune and synthwave sounds that plays as a high-octane soundtrack to what sounds like a killer cyberpunk game. Favorite track: Torn.

about

Sometimes your weakness... becomes your greatest strength.

An accident left you hospitalized and alone. Zero chance of survival. An ideal candidate for an experimental cybernetic implant surgery. But there were unforeseen... complications.

Now, you’ll need to harness your newfound UPGRADE to battle the mysterious shadow corporation pursuing you.

It won’t be easy. Standing between you and freedom is an army of company agents and cybernetic nightmares. You’ll need to transform using technology to beat the odds.

But beware – even as you re-make your fate, you un-make yourself.

Nothing lasts forever.
