Your two week deadline is today. You just need to submit a work-in-progress or any form of evidence that you're working on a song. Once you do that, you'll get another two weeks.

If you have submitted evidence and I didn't see it, please resend it here.


Super sorry, loads of other projects and work got in my way for this one. Good luck to everyone else! Hopefully the world is a bit more calm when the next one comes around.

Your two-week deadline to submit a work in progress is today.

@TheVodouQueen

@wilidacious

@Jernemies


You have one more day

@ZipZipper


and two more days

@vocaloutburst


The acceptance rate for the WIPs is 100%. You can submit audio, a screenshot of your project, lyrics, etc. or even talk about what you have planned so far.


Don't panic if you can't submit anything; you can simply enter again after two weeks. The final deadline is January 31st.


@Everratic OK, give me a moment to at least get screenshots together.

I am struggling and having some issues getting used to working with midis and meshing them with loops, but the first is what I am going to base my "Final Push" on. Wanted to go for it being a tuned-up, hyped-up, faster tempo reprise of the 'title screen' music, if I ever made the game to go with it.


I'll try to finalize the 'title / select screen' so people can hear and give feedback, before I start trying to integrate and morph it into the "Final Push" song.


...If I had the guts I'd try my share at writing lyrics and putting words to this rather than just using church-choir.exe, but sadly I'm a bit too shy and worried about my own music composing capabilities to try that yet. ...Just started composing around the beginning of September, this year, lol.

Good luck, and consider asking for feedback in the discord server - people are more active there.

ah, all i have are thirty seconds of something ironically called, "promises", and the feeling of being back in high school on the morning a paper is due.


Updated WIP with rewritten intro, final boss theme, progress on the outro and some tweaks. I'm in LunacyEcho's Final Push

Can I do a song about "Final Push"?

You can possibly get that challenge for the event, but first you would have to follow the sign up rules like everyone else.



1) FINAL PUSH

2) FINAL PUSH

3) FINAL PUSH

4) Northpeaks Spy


Okay...am I the only one here that doesn't understand some of the 'genres'


What's "Northpeaks" Spy? Why isn't it just "spy music'? I have never heard of Northpeaks before. What is that referencing??? I even googled it, but nothing. I mean, basically it just means 'spy' music, right?


And...what's VIRTUAL BOND? How is that a genre or theme? My guess is....long distance friends? VR Friendship/relationships? THAT'S the theme? Very specific like that?


And then finally XRL hangar? That's the theme? What music there would be for an airplane hangar? Lol.


Did I get this correct?


The only one I'm interested in is Final Push. Can I get that one, please? I see there are more slots open!

The name Virtual Bond is a sort of tribute to Cave Story, one of the main points of inspiration for my prompt.

Since my time is (I pressume) about to run out until I hit the deadline, here's a very rough wip.

All feedback is appreciated as I'm not very fond of it, I *like* it but I still feel it's lacking in something, besides lenght I mean.

Response to Newgrounds Video Game Music Challenge 2020-11-24 13:52:47


To get feedback more reliably, I suggest

  1. Join the discord server and post your work there https://discord.gg/tPg7exZG
  2. Give thoughtful feedback to other participants, especially those in the same group.
  3. If you’re totally done with your song, tag the challenge designer and request early feedback.

You have one day to submit evidence of a work-in-progress. I'm giving some of you an extension because I didn't have time to send reminders.

Yep yep yep, I'm here!

So I still don't really know what I'm doing but I got Vital and I started playing around with it: https://www.newgrounds.com/projects/audio/1555082/preview

I'm not even sure I'll use any of those instruments in the end but at least I'm getting used to Vital

All I know is that I wanna do something kinda "ambient" for this challenge


hey there

Thanks for notifying me. I'll gladly leave my spot open for the taking since I won't likely be able to finish anything decent in time for the final deadline. Good luck to anyone else.

Here's my WIP:


I'm mostly done composing, maybe some details here and there, then it's mixing and mastering.

Response to Newgrounds Video Game Music Challenge 2020-11-29 16:04:59



Finally finished the composing of my track, still consider it in a WIP stage so any and all feedback is appreciated and Ill continue to make changes until the deadline hits


The following people don't have to worry about WIP deadlines anymore. Just submit your final version to the submissions thread before the final deadline on January 31st.
