Student/Apprentice 2012 Contest Announced

The GANG Student/Apprentice contest is open to all GANG members who have not yet received compensation for any work in the game industry, which are usually our Student level or Apprentice level members. Prizes will include donated plugins, instrument libraries and SFX libraries, but these have not yet been confirmed (past prizes include Cinesamples, Nine Volt Audio, Boom Library, Propellerhead, Audiobro and more). They will be really cool though. If you are attending GDC you will be able to pick up your prize at the awards show. The rules and details...after the jump

Winners announced at the GANG Awards during GDC March 7-9 (date TBA)

The theme this year:

MUSIC: Write a 60 second theme that MUST loop seamlessly. The game is a social game based in a cheery castle from a mysterious era. As the player progresses, they learn more about these mysteries. Music must leave space for UI sounds for player feedback, so it shouldn't be too busy. But it should have the endearing quality of all good looping game themes: it should not annoy the player in a way that they stop playing the game! Also, did I mention the theme should be 60 seconds. Ok, I thought so.

SOUND DESIGN: These sounds are for the same cheery castle social game as the music. Create these assets, in this order:
