Welcome to the first ever* Adventure Game Remix Contest!
Do you know what King’s Quest is? How about Monkey Island? Whether you know of them or not, you could win stuff by making a remix for the competition.
This contest is open to everyone. Our goal is to give something back to the remix artists who help make this site what it is, and hopefully expose you to some adventure games in the process. Some of the classic adventure games helped shape what the gaming experience is like today, so it’s a good time to give them a little recognition. 🙂
This contest is organized by a group of us over on the Global Gamers network, because we have enjoyed this website so much over the years. In addition to prizes for artists, for every entry we receive, we’ll donate $5 toward OCRemix.org up to a maximum of $300.
* At least, I think it’s the first.
AT A GLANCE
Theme: Pick music from an adventure game* and create a remix!

Submissions will be accepted for four weeks, starting Saturday, January 23 at 12:00 midnight EST and ending Saturday, February 20 at 11:59 PM EST.
Entries must be new remixes created for this competition, and they must fit the adventure game theme.
Entries should be in MP3, OGG, or MIDI format, and they should not be larger than 8 MB.
Entries must be at least 1 minute long.
Multiple entries from the same artist ARE allowed, but each entry from a single artist must be based on different music. Each artist can only win one prize.
Collaborations are acceptable but the prizes may change accordingly (see the Prizes section in the next post).
Your source can be from any video game in the adventure genre. Some examples:
Quest for Glory
Sam & Max
If you’re not sure if a game you want to use qualifies, make sure you get approval from me (Atropos) before you start!
HOW TO SUBMIT AN ENTRY
E-mail submissions to me at [email protected] before the deadline. In your e-mail, you must include:
1) Your name as you want it posted in the thread
2) The title of your remix
3) The game(s) you used
4) The titles of any songs you used (or if you can’t find the title, some description so we know where it was in the game)
5) Don’t forget your remix! A link to it is fine if you have it hosted somewhere, or just attach it to the e-mail.
6) Any other information you want us to know about your entry.
If you want to modify your entry before the contest deadline, that’s okay, but I have to receive your e-mail or PM with your updated entry before the deadline.
I will post links to the final entries in this thread on Sunday, February 21, for voting.
