Game Set Mash!! (GSM2) - Metroid vs. Castlevania


Recommended Posts

Welcome back to Game Set Mash!!, a team-based, long-form competition format for the OC ReMix community!

Current Status

Gathering interest for participation. If you want to join in, reply to this thread with your team preference (Metroid or Castlevania). I'd love to kick things off in November but based on interest and availability I'm willing to push things out.

How does the competition work?

  • Participating remixers will form 2 teams of at least 3 members each.
  • Each team will be assigned a set of 3 games.
  • The competition lasts 6-7 weeks, with 10-day mixing rounds alternating with 4-day voting periods.
  • At the start of the mixing round, each team will choose and reveal 1 source tune from each of their 3 games.
  • Each source will be paired with another source from the opposing team, for a total of 3 pairs.
  • Each team will be responsible for writing 3 remixes for the week that combine (or mash) both source tunes in each pair.
  • At the end of the mixing round, we'll upload the remixes and have a community vote.
  • Voters will vote on the 3 remixes that did the best job of mashing the two source tunes together.
  • Teams will accumulate a score based on how many of the community votes they win.
  • In the next mixing round, we'll rotate which games get paired up with opposing games.

What are the rules about teams?
I want to make things easy and accessible for people to participate, so there's no maximum on team size, but I will be asking people to do their best to even out the teams once we have all of our participants signed up. Unlike previous competitions I've run, there's no rules about who has to be a primary arranger for a track from week to week. Teams will be free to organize and determine how each of the three remixes gets covered. Using your teammates for collaboration and feedback is highly encouraged.

What are the games we're remixing?

  • The Metroid games are: Super Metroid, Metroid Fusion, and Metroid Prime.
  • The Castlevania games are: Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, and Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow.

This seems like it'll take a long time, when does it start?
I'm aiming to gather interest here on the forums and in our Discord and I'd like to start in November, depending on if we can get some sizable teams. I would love to have around 6-7 people on each team to really get the spirit of collaboration going. I understand that the holiday season gets busy, so depending on interest levels, we could delay until January, but I'd love to get things rolling earlier.
