Welcome to The Remastered Video Game Soundtrack Contest!
I'm exciting to be announcing this contest for the community at Newgrounds to participate in. If you're a big fan of video game music and have always wanted to hear your favorite game's soundtrack updated, this is your chance to make that happen!
Below is everything you'll need to know about the contest! Please read EVERYTHING to grasp the full concept of what to do, as well as what you can win!
You are to send me a Private Message explaining which soundtrack I should remaster and why. It does not have to be wordy unless you want a chance at getting bonus points for your #1 song (which I explain in the "how points are awarded"). Along with that you will have to name in order the top 3 soundtracks you want remastered with #1 being the most wanted etc.
After that you can put your name or whatever you want, but you must have that so can keep things organized. Failure to do so will result in me ignoring your letter and votes.
HOW POINTS ARE AWARDED:
If you rank a game as your #1 it's worth 4 points, #2 is 2 points, and #3 is 1 point.
I will apply the same rule to PM's that have a stirring reason why I should chose their #1 game, however points will be worth more since it takes more effort to do this. The PM with the BEST reason why I should chose their #1 game will be worth 12 points, the 2nd best letter will be worth 8 points, and 3rd best will be worth 5. So remember your PM could tip the balance!
Based on what game wins I will be remastering the soundtrack of the game and releasing it right here on Newgrounds under a project name related to the game, so that the account has ONLY the songs related to the project!
END DATE/DEADLINE FOR THE CONTEST:
11:59 PM on May 31st, 2009 NOT FINAL (could end as early as April 30th so get your votes in ASAP)
EXPECTED DATE FOR SOUNDTRACK RELEASE:
Depending on the game (some have a lot of songs) I would expect it around or before, August 30th, 2009. FINAL (only possible change in a release date would be an earlier one)
The times are such that in case something crazy happens in real life I should still have no issues hitting the deadline. Remember that I am 1 guy doing this alone, and I have more pressing work that must be done over this. Again though, I don't foresee any issues whatsoever hitting the deadline I've made myself.
If you were the #1 essay writer in the PM you get your choice of any song in any game to be remastered along with your username dedicated to the song's title (just no obscure games like something from the N64DD). Feel free to include the song of your choice in your post as well, if you feel like you have a shot at being #1.
If you were in the TOP 3 for essay writers in the PM, your names will be announced in my news post which announced the game that won, along with the next news post which announces that the remastered soundtrack has been released on Newgrounds!
So if you want to hear your favorite game soundtrack with modern and professional quality sounds, send in your letters and your votes! If you have any questions, feel free to put them in as a comment to this post.
