In early 2011, Chiptunes = WIN (aka ChipWIN) was founded in a whirlwind of love, hashtags, and ASCII enthusiasm as a small Facebook Group for a few friends to share chipmusic with each other and discover new artists.



Seven years (and counting!) later, Chiptunes = WIN has blossomed into a diverse community of over 5,700 chiptune enthusiasts and has sprouted a blogalbum index, worldwide maplist of artists and labels, events calendar, and netlabel for releasing yearly compilations. ChipWIN is currently supported primarily through album and merch sales + occasional PayPal donations, as well as the love and dedication of a myriad of volunteers and dedicated community members; the latter being the true heart and soul of ChipWIN.

While the devotion and love of the community has carried us this far, we have big dreams for the future of ChipWIN. We've always tried to operate as closely as we could to a Non-profit Organization, and now we're aiming to make this a reality: a Non-profit dedicated to nurturing the chipmusic community and increasing its reach!

This effort alone will take a great deal of additional time, effort, and money, but our hopes and dreams don't stop there!

Our other goals include:
  • Release more compilations, more consistently & increase their distribution [in progress]
  • Develop & launch a Discord community [DONE!]
  • Pay for further web dev improvements (THAT LIST IS LONG YO! ʿʿ⁽⁽((⁰ⅈ⁰))⁾⁾ʾʾ) [in progress]
  • Expand and improve The ChipWIN Blog [in progress]
  • Further develop our YouTube channel (i.e. create & upload more content) [in progress]
  • Create a ChipWIN streaming radio outlet [DONE!]
  • Finally develop & utilize our gorram Twitch channel
  • Develop & Promote 'Chiptunes = LEARN', a varied chip-education focused outlet
  • Found a ChipWIN netlabel specifically for showcasing individual artists’ releases
  • Organize an annual ChipWINFest showcasing all the best music in & around the ChipWIN community

The reality of this is simple: we cannot achieve these things alone. While we are grateful beyond measure for the support and love our community, we need time, more volunteers and greater capital to make all of this happen.

What we don’t want to do is make anyone pay to access our community and enjoy our releases; our compilations remain “name your own price” indefinitely, all access to the community remains open, and The ChipWIN Fund continues to dump right back into the project.

If anything, think of this Patreon as an additional "tip jar" for the Fund. If you love ChipWIN, if you believe in it and want to help it grow and can afford to donate, we appreciate your extra dollars.

If you would like to volunteer your time and efforts to help grow ChipWIN in new and different directions, let us know. Funds are important, but so is people power!

While this campaign isn't individual reward oriented, we have thought of a few small thank you gifts to bestow upon Patrons, up to and including early streaming rights to all the Chiptunes = WIN compilations. These thank you gifts will, of course, change and evolve along with the project, so keep an eye on them as we move forward!

Most importantly, thank you for taking the time to read this and for being a part of ChipWIN in whatever form and fashion you’re able to be. Catch you in the ChipRealm!
