Calling all musicians!
XSEED Games and ACQUIRE are hosting a fan music contest for the upcoming music strategy title, Orgarhythm. The contest will give fans and aspiring musicians the opportunity to have their own original tracks featured as part of a free downloadable add-on to the game after it ships later this year on the PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system.
Fans can submit their tracks until October 1st by posting their submissions to YouTube and submitting the link via the contest submission page. The official entry rules can be found here, while the submission page can be accessed directly at this link.
Submissions can be of three lengths:
One minute, three minutes, or 4.5 minutes. Music must be the applicants’ own original work. The submission page can also be found from within Orgarhythm’s newly launched product page here.
Up to 100 winning submissions will be added to Orgarhythm as background music and distributed as DLC post-launch. Furthermore, winners will also receive a code to download a full copy of Orgarhythm via PlayStation®Network. We will begin confirming winners in October 2012.
Orgarhythm is a unique title that combines the strategic elements of an RTS game with the speed and coordination of a music rhythm game. Troops, formations, and temporary enhancements are each assigned through rhythmic button presses on the PS®Vita touchscreen, which level-up your characters when performed successfully, and level them down when mistimed. Playing as the God of Light, players will battle the forces of the God of Darkness by guiding elemental soldiers and issuing rhythm-based attacks synced to a hypnotic mix of rock, club, and tribal music. In the game, rhythm is a weapon and different attacks occur on different beats, making the game’s catchy soundtrack dynamic to user input.
Orgarhythm is rated E10+ (Everyone 10 and older) with Fantasy Violence and Suggestive Themes by the ESRB.
