In somewhat stark contrast to Chipsurf Pipeline, Hero EP is a collection of songs on our forthcoming Hero album. The songs tell the story of our Hero in an 8/16-bit JRPG. The style is a combination of acoustic and folk elements along the likes of John Prine with our typical chiptune sound.

It is a companion to Victim Cache: The RPG. A tropy RPG paying homage to the 8 and 16-bit RPGs we grew up with, but also has its own unique story as well. We are currently working on the RPG itself. If you want to follow its progress, be sure to check out Patreon out!
