OC ReMix Presents 25YEARLEGEND: A Legend of Zelda Indie Game Composer Tribute!

November 22, 2011

Contact: press@ocremix.org

FAIRFAX, VA--OverClocked ReMix today released its 29th arrangement album, 25YEARLEGEND: A Legend of Zelda Indie Game Composer Tribute. This album, directed by indie game developer and composer Roger "Rekcahdam" Hicks, features 20 indie composers producing 18 arrangements from Nintendo's entire Legend of Zelda series. Among these composers are Laura Shigihara (Plants vs. Zombies), C418 (Minecraft), Disasterpeace (Fez), and the list goes on! The album's release also features artwork by game artists Paul Veer (Celestial Mechanica) and Lisa Coffman.

25YEARLEGEND is available for free download at http://zelda25.ocremix.org. This album was produced to help promote the music and 25th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda, was made by fans, for fans, and is not affiliated with or endorsed by Nintendo; all original compositions are copyright their respective owners.

"Working with fellow indie composers for this tribute album has been a dream come true," said album director Roger Hicks, whose efforts have resulted in a collaboration of epic proportions among several independent video game composers. "Each composer, at some point in time, has been influenced by the music of Legend of Zelda. It is an honor to have completed such an amazing album with composers who share the same excitement that I still have about the Zelda series."

"While 25YEARLEGEND didn't originate within the OC ReMix community, both the arrangements themselves & the overall spirit of the album echo everything that we're about, and I'm extremely proud to be publishing it," said OC ReMix founder David "djpretzel" Lloyd. "That so many artists on the roster have already established themselves as ReMixers here on OCR only reenforces the synergy and crossover that can & SHOULD happen between the VGM fan community and game composers, indie & otherwise."

Following the 2010 release of Threshold of a Dream, 25YEARLEGEND is OC ReMix's second Legend of Zelda album, and the first dedicated to the entire series. "25YEARLEGEND is an album that fans of both the series and indie games won't want to miss," said Hicks. "And we hope it makes the 25th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda that much more enjoyable for everyone!"
