Synthwave Band GUNSHIP to Release an Album on Cassette with a C64 Game
Back to the Future then back to the Past again.
A well known synthwave trio called GUNSHIP are releasing a new self titled album, but why is that the concern of a game website? I hear you ask. Well, just let me explain.
Gunship’s 13-track long album will be released on a cassette. On side A of the golden tape will be the album which is brimming with great cyberpunk tunes. On side B, however, there will be a fully playable copy of the Commodore 64 classic ‘Attack of the Mutant Camels’.
So the cassette isn’t only an album, it doubles up as a game cartridge too.

Watch the wonderfully retro trailer below:
To celebrate the announcement of the cassette, GUNSHIP are running a completion in which you could win a unique, custom neon pink Commodore 64 to play their new release on.
It’s simple to win, all you have to do is get the highest possible score on the Amiga/Atari ST game ‘Llamatron’, an emulator of which has been set up and can be found by clicking here.
If you reach a high score you will be asked to enter your name, at that point enter your twitter handle (or as much as you can fit) then a take a picture of yourself alongside the high score table and tweet it to @GUNSHIPmusic, with the hashtag #LlamasAteMyParents.
The completion closed December 10th.
