How to Download and Play Songs On Chiptune Champion

Chiptune Champion has tons of awesome songs pre-downloaded, but after a while, they can get dull.  Fortunately, its really easy to download and play new songs from the Steam Workshop! Here’s how:

Step One: Find the song

If you go to your library on Steam and select Chiptune Champion, below the achievements box you’ll see a button that says ‘Browse The Workshop’. Clicking this will take you to a separate page with loads of user created songs. Simply find one you like, and click it.

Step Two: Subscribing

Now that you’ve found your song and clicked on it, you’ll see a page similar to what you’d see when looking at games. Pictures, title, maybe a video and a subscribe button instead of a buy button. Clicking that will ‘subscribe’ you to the song, meaning that it’s accessible through Chiptune Champion. Unfortunately however, you’re work isn’t over.

Step Three: Downloading

On the same page as the subscribe button, there will almost always be a description of the song. In that description, there’s probably a link to the mp3 file that you need to play along too. Clicking that link opens your browser and takes you to a download page, where you can download the song. Once you’ve got the file, either remember where it’s located (most likely downloads) or make a folder on your desktop and put it in there.

Step Four: Importing

Open Chiptune Champion and go to the section marked ‘Custom Songs’. In there, you’ll see a button marked ‘Import’, in the top right of the page.

Clicking that opens a file explorer window, in which you must find the mp3 file you downloaded. If you didn’t make a folder, it will probably be in downloads. Double click the mp3 file. A box will pop up asking you if you made the song yourself or took it from the Steam Workshop.

This guide is for Steam Workshop songs, so click that. Another box will appear, this time asking you to select the track file you subscribed too. It’ll have a similar name to the one in the Steam Workshop. After you’ve selected the track file and clicked ‘OK’, just type in the song name and the artist, and you’re all set to go!


Chiptune Champion: Game Review

Have you ever wanted to play the tune you hear in Super Mario Bros, or the annoyingly catchy Nyan Cat theme? Well, with Chiptune Champion, you can! Turn your keyboard into an instrument, and play along to awesome 8-Bit music!

One of the things I love most about the game is the wide variety of songs. There are 37 to play immediately, with an extra 3 to be unlocked! They cater to a wide variety of tastes, so if you don’t like one song, you’ll almost definitely find another one that’s your style!

Hey, who’s that at number one?

As well as the collection of songs, you can also download more from the Steam workshop, such as the Super Mario Bros theme, a Doctor Who techno remix and even John Cena’s “My Time Is Now”! They’re pretty easy to download, and if you don’t know how, we have a tutorial here!

One of the only things I don’t like is the fact that it can’t go totally fullscreen. Yes, it has the option to, but the screenshot above is what the fullscreen looks like. One more thing that I don’t like is the difficulty of the medium category. It’s essentially just a slightly easier version of the expert category, which, by the way, is pretty hard. I thought it would be easier than that, and would ease you into the tricker difficulties.

Overall, it’s a pretty great game, and I would definitely recommend it to those of you that enjoy games such as Super Mario Bros or Pac-Man. It shares qualities similar to that of Guitar Hero, so players of that should definitely check this game out!
