Mark Knight's Reawakening is a Commodore music revival

The chiptunes don't stop, amigas y amigos!

I've been sitting on this one for a couple of weeks until I powered though my to-do list. Now that I'm all caught up, it's go time, baby!

Mark "TDK" Knight is a British composer from way back in the Commodore 64 and Amiga days. In 1992, he joined the industry and worked on such games as the Amiga ports of Sim City 2000 and Wing Commander, plus later titles like the DiRT series and Metal Gear Solid Mobile.

After a nearly two-decade hiatus from the chiptune demoscene, Mark has returned with a full-length chiptune album, Reawakening. If you grew up with gaming computers instead of an NES, it will make you flip your sh*t. And since we are in the season of giving, I know you will toss in a few bucks to download this goodness rather than swipe it like a greedy rat.

Seriously. Don't be a scrooge.
