In this paper we present a discussion about the chiptune scene, in a perspective of "appropriation" and mutual adaptation between users and technology, from a systematization of different discourses (film and bibliography). From this we extract a perception about the anthropological dimension of the experience of play (play of the game) and present some scene members practices, with its proper interpretations.
