There is a new game coming out soon for the iPhone and iPad, and Sakari Infinity is holding the contest for music in the game! Some of you have probably heard about this already, it’s called Roxy Dark and The Spydrs. The game has you following a (fictional) rock band called The Spydrs, and you have been contracted by Roxy, their lead guitarist. Your job is to keep spiders out of “The Spydrs” concerts – apparently spiders just love hard rock, but they bother the audience.
The player will make their way through 50 twisted, spider-filled levels at 5 concert venues. They’ll frantically try and tap as many spiders as they can, while the music rocks their world.
The soundtrack to this game will be… You guessed it: hard rock. A rock band called Violet X will be doing some tracks for the game, but more tracks are needed! That’s where you come in…!
UPDATE: Winners will also receive a free copy of the game! (I thought I mentioned that, but I must have forgotten)
Sakari Infinity is holding a “hard rock” music contest. It will last from now until the game is published in late spring / early summer! The winners will have their songs used in a published Apple game, and their name in lights in the final stage of the game (as well as be listed on the credits page).
Song entries should be at least 2 minutes and loopable. Use of electric / grunge guitar is a must, along with a quick tempo and solid bass line.
If you’re used to writing RPG music, think about this as a “Battle” theme. It kind of is!
Submit your entries using the Upload tab at the top of the site. Just make sure you mention that this is for the Roxy Dark Music Contest.
Any questions, just ask!

These images were captured from a working version of the game on an iPad 2. The game is about 70% done at the time of this posting, and is slated to be launched late spring or early summer 2012. Note: The “Roxy” rendering is tentative. These are not official screenshots.
