I'm waiting to know what theme Tiger Child will pick to create the June contest and make the new topic on Gametabs ^^
If he doesn't respond whiting the 12 next hours i'll ask Danilo, and if he doesn't answer i'll ask Avaruussaha and so on.
Hey guys this is VOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOTING TIME
How does it work?
It's simple, you all post in the comments your top 3 (you can't vote for yourself), the 1st one of your top will win 3 points, the 2nd 2 points and the 3rd 1 point.
I also ask you to give me one or two honourable mention(s).
Ofc if you can give some feedbacks while voting that'd be appreciated
On the 1st of June i'll announce the winner and he'll chose the theme for the next contest =)
If you vote you win 1 point (which can make a difference).
For entertaining reasons i'll create a championship sheet, the winner of this month will win 5 points, the 2nd 4 points etc.
The person with the more HM will get a bonus point on the championship ^^
Every participant will at least win 1 point for the championship =)
Those are the rules for now, they may change in the future based on what work well or not ^^
Btw we got 10 entries, which is a lot, i'm really happy to see you guys seem to enjoy the return of the original contests entries
Hey friends, it's time to revive an old Gametabs tradition: The Original Tunes Contest !
We all like Video Game Musics, and some of us dream to compose songs for games soundtracks, well here is a good way to practice and show what you can do !
How does it work ?
Each contest will last one month, each month will have a theme that you must respect to participate.
Could be "Battle Themes" could be "Main Character Theme" or "Forest Theme" etc etc.
You sometimes may be asked to write a bit of context/story around our song.
The theme will be picked by the previous month's winner.
So it also means that the previous contest winner will have to write a post with the theme, so the organizer is not always the same person. The organizer can participate to his own theme too =)
The themes could follow a story from contests to contests (that's why I picked opening/intro for the 1st contest) or not, only the winner will decides if he wants. The winner can also write a small text explaining a situation and your goal will be to create a music that would fit that situation.
Every music style is welcome, you can make 8bits musics, orchestral arrangements, live recordings, electronic music... As long as it fits the theme, everything is allowed !
To enter your song must be an original creation of your own made specifically for this contest.
You can upload your songs on youtube, soundcloud or any other place that allows the listening without having to download it.
Your song must be 1 minute long MINIMUM.
At the end of the month, during 2 or 3 days people will vote to elect the best entry (I'll explain the voting system when it will be time).
This Month Theme
Prelude / Opening / Introduction.
This would be the first music people will hear in the game, it has to describes the global atmosphere of the universe you have in mind. You may also include (or not) different musical themes/sections to show a changing situation in your universe.
Add a little description of the world/universe to see how it fits your music.
If it's a futuristic dark world controlled by technology, you ain't gonna use a charming flute with sweet harp arpeggios
You have until the 25th of May to submit your song HERE!
Not on discord (join us: https://discord.gg/5n7qEwu), not on private message, but here
If you have any question be sure to let me know, i may have forgot to explain some points ahah
