Hey everyone!

I'm B00daW from (void), Dave from Catskull Electronics has a message. He's organizing a Genesis compilation cartridge. It will be released on a cartridge! He's looking for submissions and he was told this was the place to look.


"Hot dog fresh off the grill in one hand, a cold bottle of coke in the other. The sun is setting over suburbia and the neighbors are setting up lawn chairs on the curb. It’s been a day full of festivities from bounce castles, slip n’ slides, and way too much cotton candy. Not that you’d know, you’ve been upstairs in your bedroom playing your Sega Genesis all day. After a hot day, it’s cooling off just in time for the main event: the fireworks. Lay a blanket out on your lawn and get comfortable because it’s YM2017!"

Open call for submissions

- Submission deadline is June 30, 2017

- Songs must be submitted as a .VGM

- Musicians will be compensated with cash plus a "contributors" edition of the cartridge

honestly I don't think i'm good enough to get anything in there but hey, it's worth a shot and maybe the reward will be enough to get me off my ass and really get me to get a song to it's truly finished form.

I'm really, really cold right now... So i'll pass with lying on the floor and watching the fireworks. Freaking flipped seasons in 'straya

Well, you'll only get "good enough" by practice. Doing your best, pushing yourself, and submitting what you have. What's the worst that could happen?

Unfortunately, the entry deadline is over. Perhaps there will be another one next year.
