On the eve of its fifth birthday this October, PhilaMOCA‘s monthly chiptunes showcase 8static wants to throw the biggest chiptune festival in North America — right here in Philly at Rittenhouse Square’s First Unitarian Church. It’s raising $10,000 for the effort and the crew is more than halfway to its goal.

Support the festival by Sept. 30.

The festival is scheduled for Oct. 17-19, the same weekend as the Grassroots Game Conference.

If you’re unfamiliar with chiptunes, a style of music that’s known for using Gameboys as synthesizers, check out our Q&A with 8static cofounder Joey Mariano. Also watch an intro to chiptunes and 8static in 8static’s video below.
