Congrats to the winners! If you need a voice actress, I'm game. @thegoatee has legit music, and @chongo is a fab male va.

Also, you can use this handy list of VAs with audio samples and whatnot!

If you were planning to make something for this theme, heads up - the competition is only open to artists still in the tournament brackets. There was an open round previously where everyone had a chance to join in.

Still, it would be kinda fun to see other people take a stab at the theme. If you do you could still post a link in this thread, just know it won't be considered for the tournament judging at this point.


Nightmare Cops, the game JohnnyUtah, Spazkid and I have been working on.

Sorry guys, but looks like i'm going to have to forfeit due to rl. Just got a contract in the beginning of last week and that along with my part time job took most of my time from doing the round.

Anyways, good luck to everyone else participating.
