A demo has been unveiled...

A fun new 8-Bit computer game based on Tim Burgess Twitter listening parties has been unveiled.

The indie legend kicked off the Twitter-based album listening parties in March, just as the first lockdown came into force.

Since then, it's become a bona fide phenomenon, passing the 666th mark on Friday (February 12th).

A Japanese designer has developed a neat 8-Bit game that acts as a homage to Tim's work, while containing an array of cameos.

Featuring everyone from Bowie to Arlo Parks, it's reminiscent of those Alex Kidd or Super Mario scrollers.

Speaking to NME, Tim Burgess commented:

"He sent over a couple of ideas for a retro arcade Mario style game based on the albums we’ve had at the listening party and he just sent more levels including a screen for our Iron Maiden listening party tonight. We’re working on the next levels as we speak – Pixel Roisin Murphy is so cool! We might even end up with a playable game."

Tim's Twitter Listening Party will salute SOPHIE with a special listening party this evening (February 14th) from 7pm. Find the full schedule HERE.
