Video Game Project 5 : Revival of Heroes! Official Thread

Official Page[/url]

Like I said at AWA 2007 about a year ago, I was gonna take a break for a while from running any VG Projects, and since that time has passed, it's finally time to start the 5th VG Project!

The theme for this year is now free for all, which means any era of gaming, any game, any system from the Atari to the PS3. Although the presentation of the project will most likely be 8-bit like Megaman 9.

If you're interested in joining, please read over the Rules and Guidelines.

In short:

- Videos must be in MPEG2 format in 720 x 480 in 29.97, 23.98/24 fps (NO 3:2 pulldown!)
- Any source is now allowed whether it be anime, live action, cartoons, etc
- You must have 2 seconds of black before and after your videos
- You must use game footage and connect it to your source in a coherent way
- Videos should be longer than a minute and a half and shorter than 3 minutes. Shorts should be 45 seconds or less. Going over is subject to my approval
- First priority will be given to people who have finished VG4 tracks and anyone else I find trustworthy. However, don't let that discourage you from joining since we always get alot of great new talent on each project
- All videos will be uploaded to a designated ftp, contact me for details

Once you have a track in mind and an idea, email me at vegetainsane@hotmail.com or PM me with the following.

- Your name/real name
- 2-3 tracks you are interested in (Please provide urls for them)
- Anime/Shows/Movies you will be using
- Your basic ideas for all of the tracks (Not answering this or saying "I don't know yet", "I think of something later" will most likely not convince me to give you a track)
- If you want to make a short, then give me your general idea here along with the source/audio

Video Game music remixes can be found on OCremix, VGmix, and other sites.

Sadly since I'm working now, I won't be able to get on AIM as much until the weekend, so make sure you check your emails and PM's often as those will be the main way I will be contacting everyone.

We will not be using a yahoo mailing list this year since it's a pain in the ass to setup for everyone and nobody really uses it anyways.

Deadlines
- Proof of concept betas are due April 31
- All betas are due July 31
- Absolute Final Deadline is August 31, not in Sept like the past projects

Anything else is covered in the rules.

Good luck and let's hope we get this project off the ground!

I'm thinking about going metal, using a song from ArmCannon, Powerglove, This Place is Haunted, Year 200x, etc.

I'll let you know ^_^.

P.S. It might end up as a "Where's DWChang?" kinda video :-P j/k

We'll see how things go, but I would say one track and one short per person for now. :P

I already said I was down, but posting here anyway :O

Rather than use remixes for my track though, I might go with a mix of stuff from various games (since everything from the game I'm using is basically taken from other sources anyhow, and most of the music in the game is the same away, along with just a bunch of guitar riffs)

I'm pretty lenient on using actual game music now since people have come up with creative things like anime characters doing game stuff, etc.

The track, or tracks I've chosen for my video will be actual game music, but the characters in my sources will be the main game characters.

O shi- :shock:

Don't know if I can go through this again after how hectic it was last time. Plus I accomplished what I set out to do for the VGP series (bring StarTropics to it). But I promise I'll think about it :P
