Greetings to all fans of video game music! We have started a VGM collaboration called RMN Music Pack 2 over at rpgmaker.net, our goal being to create an extensive album of video game music for everyone to listen to and to use in their game projects and other media for free.
RMN Music Pack 2 will be a continuation to its predecessor, the first RMN Music Pack, and this time we're looking to produce a sequel that not only follows a similar concept, but also raises the bar - as all great sequels should. RMN Music Pack project is run within a community that revolves mainly around creating RPGs, so the music of the album is primarily intended to fit this game genre as well. Some songs may be usable in wider variety of instances, but a lot of the music of our album is still intended to be melodic, loop-able themes, fitting for JRPG type of games.
If you're either a composer or a consumer of this type of music, you should definitely check out our event page over here for further details. There are some participation rewards involved, but our main intent is to collaborate to create a solid album of melodic video game music for everyone to enjoy and use for free. Our first album has enjoyed some success, garnering over 20,000 downloads, and it has been utilized in numerous projects of hobbyist, or aspiring game developers.
RMN Music Pack 2 album is aimed to be completed within a time-scope of 3 to 4 months, depending on how many entrants and submissions we get. After the event is over the album will be released for free of charge, under creative commons license. We will have some criteria and a validation for submitted entries, but our goal is to keep an open channel for communication and feedback, and collaborate and help each other out to achieve the best possible results. You can find the first RMN Music pack over here, to see reference for minimum standards, though we also want to bring up the quality with this sequel.
If you have any questions that you didn't find an answer to on our event page, leave a message and I'll answer them here! If this sounded at all like your cup of tea then I hope to see you around in our event!
