The cover art for Electric Light Orchestra's Out of the Blue is spacey and iconic and it got us thinking about how fun an ELO-themed shmup might have been back in the day... Well, here's the next best thing: a chiptune tribute that could have worked as a soundtrack for such a game!

The eight artists here have used hardware and samples from various old video game consoles to pay tribute to some of Jeff Lynne's most memorable songs, and it only seemed fitting to commission cover artwork that mimicked the crappy Atari box art of the same era when ELO rose to prominence. We hope you have as much fun listening as we did putting it together!
