Law & Order
Doctor Octoroc • After These Messages
“Law & Order” chiptune arrangement by Doctor Octoroc. In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by this smooth 8-bit remix of a classic theme.
This is one of 33 tracks from After These Messages, a newly released album of chip arrangements for old TV shows, cartoons, and commercials. Its songs jump from G.I. Joe to Heathcliff to Beverly Hills 90210 to Doublemint Gum. I chose to feature this song, even though it’s inferior to Criminal Intent’s original theme, because it reminds me of Rescue: The Embassy Mission.
Doctor Octoroc (also creator of 8-bit Jesus) is selling After These Messages with a “pay-what-you-want” model, so you can grab all of the songs like I did for a penny, or if you’re not a dick, you can send a payment fitting for all the work he put into this fabulous collection.

8-bit remix of Adventure Time’s theme by Doctor Octoroc. Have you watched the first two episodes of Adventure Time yet? Oh man, it is like the best thing since best things. Did you see what happened to Tree Trunks several nights ago?! OMG, I lumping love this show!

Doctor Octoroc • Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Game
“Freeze Ray” by Doctor Octoroc, an 8-bit cover of the Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog track. This sounds like a really fun song to explore a charming 8-bit RPG town (from an overhead persepective, of course) to.
Octoroc released a soundtrack and video re-imagining the musical comedy’s first act as an NES-style game. Watch/listen to the entire production here!

Really, there’s no way we couldn’t feature this painting, what with this being (kind of like) our footer and all. And of course, we also must admire Levi “Doctor Octoroc” Buffum’s bead recreation of the same scene:
“Fire Wall” by Levi “Doctor Octoroc” Buffum.
“A custom, framed, solid bead sprite depicting an RPG style battle between Nintendo’s three main mascots (Samus, Link and Mario) and a giant XBox 360 posessed by the head of Microsoft’s Bill Gates.
This scene parallels the battle with the Evil Wall in Final Fantasy 4 for SNES.”

“Wizards from the Realm of Warriors,” one of the tracks that didn’t make it onto Doctor Octoroc’s 8-Bit Jesus album.
I loved Wizards & Warriors growing up, and though I haven’t played the game in nearly twenty years, its opening music has remained in my head since, residing with the other memories that I hardly ever bother recollecting, save for once every five years or so.
JC also linked me to The Minibosses’ cover of the NES game’s music, which is worth four minutes of your time.
I have a sudden urge to acquire a copy of the Wizards & Warriors Worlds of Power novel, now.
Fuck yeah I’m going to put the Gummi Bears theme into heavy rotation. Possibly while eating Gummi Bears — I’ll keep you all updated.
Just in time for Christmas, Doctor Octoroc has completed his brilliant 8-Bit Jesus album, a collection of Christmas chiptunes each made in the style of an NES game’s soundtrack. The complete 8-Bit Jesus has doubled in size to 18 tracks, including some redone versions of the existing songs.
Awesomely, Octoroc is offering physical copies of the CD, for $15 each. Sadly, the offer is a fundraising effort to pay for surgery for his dog. If you like Christmas music, chiptunes, and dogs, you could make a Christmas miracle for little Ein! The album is still available for free if you don’t want to contribute or if this economy has ravaged your chiptune budget.
“Carol of the Belmonts” from Doctor Octoroc’s 8-bit Jesus album. I was skeptical of the promise of each track being a “chip-tune version of a classic Christmas song done in the style of a different NES game,” but wow, Octoroc delivered! It’s actually quite easy to identify the game series associated with most of the tracks.
