Technoccult: Covenant, an upcoming visual novel by Eliot Gardepe, uses the sounds of the Yamaha YM2608 and Roland JX-305 and lo-fi imagery to emulate the textures and aesthetics of the NEC PC-98 and early 90s electronic music. Drawing inspiration from the music of Ryu Umemoto and Shōji Meguro and visual novels like EVE Burst Error and Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward, both the game and soundtrack articulate aspects of the psychopunk aesthetic within the context of contemporary narrative art. For more information about the game, set to release this Fall, visit psychopunk.net. For the soundtrack, which is out now, visit music.eliotgardepe.com.
