Interest in a Sonic Remix Competition?

So yeah this is happening for sure! Look for the official competition thread in the Competitions subforum on April 14th. That is when recruitment and zone selection will begin!

---------------------------------

Hey everybody! So I was thinking it'd be cool to have a Sonic the Hedgehog Remix competition, that would follow the same general rules of Darke's Grand Robot Master Remix Battles. We'd have two brackets where participants would each pick a Zone from one of the core Sonic games (Sonic 1, 2, 3, 4, S&K, Sonic CD, Sonic Adventure, etc.). The mixers would then have to make a song using their Zone theme and the Zone theme of their opponent.

Everybody would vote for the song they like better. The mixer with the most votes moves on to the next round. Mixing periods would last a week, voting periods another week. So yeah, like I said, pretty much the same rules as the GRMRBs only with Sonic Zone themes instead.

Sure we have tons of Sonic remixes, but very few that mix more than one theme at a time, and I think many of them would work quite well together. If people are interested, I'd ideally like to have 16 people (8 per bracket) participate. To get an idea of the scope of time involved... Bracket #1 would mix the first week. At the end of that week, voting would begin on Bracket #1's mixes and Bracket #2 would begin to mix. At the end of that week, voting would begin on Bracket #2's mixes, while Bracket #1 would begin mixing with the new matchups, and so on. So if you continue to win you'd be mixing every other week. At that rate it would take 8 weeks to finish the compo. If we got 32 participants, then it would take 10 weeks total.

If people are interested, please let me know what times you think may work out best for you. I'm open to any suggestions (timing, competition structure, theme/narrative ideas). I'd love to host (and participate ) in such a compo!

Support the compo, put this banner in your sig!:



-The compo will begin a 2-week recruitment period from April 14 through April 29. Keep an eye out for the official competition thread in the Competitions subforums! The first round will begin May 5th!-

Approved Sonic Games - any "Zone" theme from these games will be allowed. No boss, special stage, title/menu music is allowed however.

Please don't do this to me...

I've resigned myself to never remixing a Sonic game but if you do this competition I am going to have to try my hand at it.

I think I do vaguely remember a WIP from the Project Chaos album of yours! Making Sonic mixes never needs an excuse

Damn you Neblix! Don't ruin my fun! Plus, I thought Darke was planning the Maverick Battle for the spring? I vaguely remember him saying that during the GRMRB 2011, or is it getting pushed back since the WCRG took soooooooooooooo long to finish? Well once I know Darke's plans, I'll plan around it, cause I have a feeling this is going to garner a good enough response to happen.
