Information about the Game and Soundtrack:
Spyro the Dragon was created by a game company known as Insomniac Games, published by Sony, released in 1998. The game involves a cute little dragon named Spyro, who has a buddy named Sparx. Your objective is to recuse other dragons who have been place under a spell by the evil, Gnastly Gnorc. The game was one of the more popular titles for the PS1, and after a few weeks and months, it went on to be one of the biggest selling PS1 titles, launching a franchise still, known and loved today. The music is unique to other games, as it was composed by Stewart Copeland, who began life Drumming for the Police. Yep, you heard me, he was involved in the ever so famous 80s group, The Police. The soundtrack itself, is very much a Police soundtrack, with many of the reggae style slow peices, coinciding with the more uptempo rock and funk. For a game, that you would expect have a orchestral sound, is actually more rock (Sometimes though, i suppose some elements in structure and rhythm, could lean into the classical territory) It's a really great score, it would be interesting to see what you make of it.
Compo starts Today at 25th January 2019! and finishes at 1st February 2019!
Voting begins on the 1st February 2019 and finishes on the 8th February 2019. I will inform you who has won on the thread!
Please submit a valid mp3 file, in decent quality that is less than 20mb. It must be easy to access and download. A ThaSauce page will be set up soon, so if you can then submissions. It's been an on/off situation with ThaSauce, so SoundCloud is a good choice if ThaSauce isn't working for you. Right now nothing is set up, so submissions will have to be external from this thread, via download links, or streaming services. I recommend using SoundCloud as a choice of service! Add a link here on this thread, if you can.
