Game Set Mash!! 3 - Streets of Rage vs. Etrian Odyssey


Recommended Posts

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

Current Status

I'm gathering interest here on the forums and in our Discord and I'd like to start in July 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.

What are the games we're remixing?

The time around we're celebrating the music of Yuzo Koshiro! This legendary composer has such a wide breadth of work, and for GSM3 we're going to mix the pulsing beat 'em up beats of Streets of Rage with the sweeping JRPG scores from Etrian Odyssey.

  • Streets of Rage - Streets of Rage, Streets of Rage 2, and Streets of Rage 3
  • Etrian Odyssey - Etrian Odyssey, Etrian Odyssey 2, Etrian Odyssey 3

Each franchise features more games than just the initial three, but for the purposes of this competition we're going to limit to those first 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'll be asking people to do their best to even out the teams once we have all of our participants signed up. There are 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.

Game Set Mash!! is run primarily on OCR's Discord server, so you need to make sure you join up there.

I'm new to GSM, 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.

I may come to regret what this will do to the crumbs of my remaining spare time, but I want to join in. I see this as a great opportunity to explore Koshiro's music, which I'm not exactly familiar with and thus is a good "neutral" ground for me, and also to work on my own production and arrangement skills.
