Psychedelic Computer Games

Psychedelic computer games have been with us in one form or another since the early 80s and have evolved into multi-million selling psychedelic wonderscapes from some of the leading game development studios. 

Even classic games like PacMan ( a cheese block popping pills and chasing down technicolor ghosts ) and Mario ( Hyperactive Italian plumber quaffs magic mushrooms and explores vivid dreamland ) bring forth a drop of psychedelia to the minds of gamers worldwide.

Here is a list of some of my favorite psychedelic games for Windows, Mac, iOS, Console and Handheld systems. It's by no means complete of course so please drop some comments below and tell everyone what your favorites are - especially any obscure psychedelic gaming gems.

Psychill Ambient Chillout Mix Download - PsyAmb 67

It's been a while since I have mixed up any spacey psychill music so this week lets take a look at some of the better tunes from last year or so. This mix starts of with a pretty chilled out ambient vibe before getting into some ambient trance action later on. It's a good one for serious headphone users !

We begin with a track from Cosmic Replicant from the 2013 release "Nature Of Life" on Altar Records. Cosmic Replicant is the work of Russian psychill artist Pavel Shirshin. The album is pretty good but could with a little more variety I think as I do find the simplified structures used a little repetitive. Still its a nice step up from his previous work so I 'm looking forward to his next work and more progression from this promising producer. 

We then have Lemonchill's tune "Mantra" remixed by Erot. This is a great little tune with a progressive melodic feel. This appears on Erot's "Thoughts From The Past" mini EP released last year.

Things get a liittle darker after that with the introduction of the brooding spacey ambient tune "Metaphysical Laboratory" by Germind. This track sounds like it could work well as the soundtrack to some elaborate space opera. Great atmosphere here. You can grab this one from the Side Liner produced compilation "Discovering Plexus Music" - a collection of music from the Russian psychill netLabel "Plexus Music".
