After many years of waiting it's time for someone to head a project like this, to take it in hand and make an official OCRemix album for Tyrian! This album currently is comprised of musical selections that have been found across the internet, bringing all the best of the Tyrian fandom musical lore together into one place. I present it to you experts and otherwise to help beat from this crude ingot a mighty bar of worth.
The purpose of this project is to create a Tyrian album from original sources and remixes that will do the OCRemix community proud and satiate the fans of this venerable top down shooter on this 19th year anniversary of its release.
Things needed to complete the project:
Currently the album art being used is a generic album art image from the game. However to make this project truly unique we need a specific cover for it, and have some extras. Currently we need one or two artists to make one or more images of 100x100px size for a cover. Preferably this image would feature the SuperCarrot.
Finished Master Copies
I am trying to contact all the artists that have so far been selected for this project to get the highest quality versions of their music. Preferably I can get the ones who have unfinished music to complete their songs as well. If your name is in the artists list, please contact me, I know several of you frequent this site.
While no plans for one as have been made, if someone who has some skills in editing can put one together for us, we would appreciate it!
I am a php developer by hobby and as such can handle creating a simple site to showcase the album on. However I'm not so good at graphic design so graphics for the website are always appreciated.
Eh... not a problem.
Contacting all these musicians will be a bit difficult. If you know any of the ones listed and can send them a message for the project, that would be fabulous. I have already made some efforts towards this, contacting them through their respective social medias (YouTube, SoundCloud, Twitter, etc).
If you can't help in any of these ways, you can help in others!
This project plans to only be one CD, so while there is a lot of great music out there, not all of it will fit on the CD! We need help deciding what is really the best of the community so that we can include only that. Download the beta files and let us know what's hot and what's not.
Know someone who's made a Tyrian remix? Let us know so we can include them in this project! We'd hate to leave someone out just because we don't know they exist.
Do you have what it takes to make a original soundtrack, or original remix? Pledge your skills to this project to make it even better, and who knows, if we get enough submissions we may make a sequel!
