I am currently working on post production of a short film. The film has the whole gaming vibe going on. My idea is to be able to merge also the VFX with the sound design. I looked for some retro game sounds, such as the ones in Zelda, Mario and other games mostly from the 80's and 90's. I also looked at games like Scott Pilgrim Vs The World: The Game that have the retro games spirit. I wonder if I can get recommendations on where to get some free material either to use it or to give me some sort of inspiration.
I remember, years ago, finding a little freeware program that generates 8 bit synth FX, but i can't remember what it was called. Here is a tool i found that does something similar.
There seem to be quite a few options if you google something like "free 8 bit fx generator". Hope that helps!
