I bring you May's theme:
"The Adventures of URMOM" you say? What does that mean?
Well.. in the most hilarious and most likely most sexist NAC to date.. we are making a MOTHERS DAY NAC âEU" but vith a tvist!
Your mom is being featured in her own video game as the main player, and it is YOUR job to make the title music for the game! You can make other level music too but main title music is preferred. Now depending on your relationship with your own mother I am sure how you can see this going.. well.. several ways.. its all up to you âEU" do you love your mother? Do you wish her to die in a stinky kitchen? Let us know!
Also we want to see what kind of game you would like your mother to be starring in in the song description. Will she be shrunk down and have to battle epic germs with household products in the kitchen, use a miniature vacuum to get mutant dustballs in the living room? USE GIANT STEEL WOOL TO SCRAPE OUT THE GREASE IN THE OVEN? Ohh the possibilities are endless!
You could do a "mortal Mombat" theme where you pit your mother against OTHER mothers! You could even make a tribute to pico day and make it the pico children's mothers!
Or perhaps "Mom of the dead" where your mother is the last in a zombie apocalypse and has to kill hordes of zombies!
But let's not let me bring up all the crazy ideas.. maybe you love your mom, and will make her pick flowers or something.. Bonus points for best game description! YAAAAAAYYYY!!!
You know what.. this one's pretty open ended. Just keep in mind that anything you make is gonna reflect on how you view YOUR mother.. and if you think badly of her.. we will all disapprove of you, as will our mothers! No cookies for you!
aaah yes.. examples.. I dunno man.. unless you want me to post like.. "Motherlover" by lonely island.. I don't think I can really help you thereâEU¦
âEU¦ surPRISE us..
fuck em! No covers or remixes allowed for this contestâEU¦ NONE! NONE AT ALL!
You know what.. I stress this every month.. but if you DON'T put a lot of production quality in your song and someone else does, NATURALLY they are going to most likely do better than you. So do yourself and everyone else a favour and don't rush this please. If the effort you are putting forth isn't good enough for your mother, then it certainly isn't good enough for us! Your mother may say "oh that's nice dear" but we'll say "THIS SONG IS SHIT YO!"
So yeah.. please try.
1) If you use real instruments - make sure they sound sweet!
2) If you use a real vocalist - make sure the vocals sounds sweet!
3) If you use Nuendo or East west (which I know 90% of you that go down that route will) - for the love of god - mix it properly!
We'll favour like we said real instruments and voices - but in the end we will judge based on sheer talent and production of the song, and it's appropriateness to.. well.. your mother :P
Voices can be used, provided that:
1) It is not sampled from copyrighted recordings.
2) It is 100% your own recording and creation.
3) You can ask another artist or group to provide vocals, as long as all material is newly created for your submission, and you provide the details of the vocalist(s), who they are.
Recordings of instruments are great! Make sure you list any you used in your song description, and if anyone else helped, list them as well! As a result if someone assists you with instruments you may include them as part of your song - just make sure to mention them in your song description. The prize however will only go to the user that submitted the song.
All tracks must be in by the deadline. Please check your Newgrounds in-boxes regularly. If you have a problem with reaching the deadlines, please contact us as soon as possible, and we will review your case.
Submissions must not contain any material deemed offensive.. unless it's hilarious of course.
Further questions pertaining to official NACs can be found in the NAC General Discussion Thread
Last but not least, remember to have fun! Don't get too competitive and/or elitist, or I may have to bash some heads! :P
Also tags now work for audio âEU" Please tag your song nac052012 so that it can be put in a collection âEU" also feel free to do this for previous NACs so that they can all be categorized âEU" yay!
