To celebrate the upcoming release of Caster Episode 2, I have asked famed video game rapper Random (aka Mega Ran) (www.megaran.com) to record a new theme:

Caster – Random (right click to Save As to your desktop).

I am looking to you awesome player/game videographers to put a sweet Caster vid to this score. So I am holding a competition to create a dynamite music video to accompany the theme song. The competition starts today and lasts through the end of July.  I will choose several finalists and let Caster enthusiasts vote on a winner!

Winner Receives:

  • Custom made Caster t-shirt
  • Piece of original Caster artwork
  • Credit in the game
  • Notoriety of having their music video used as promotional material and the intro for the iPhone version of the game.

Qualified Entrants Receive:

  • Caster iPhone or desktop wallpaper

Rules:

  • You must only use Caster art or other art that you have a license to use.
  • You may add additional sound effects, but they should not obscure the base music track.
  • Keep it clean / family friendly.
  • Use the entire song.
  • Use the Caster title in the first part of the video.

Suggestions:

  • Fast action.
  • Showing off the different attacks and abilities in the game.
  • Something that fits with the song.
  • Please use a high quality video compression scheme that is a fairly standard format.

When you have something ready that you’d like to submit, just e-mail me a link to where I can download the video (like a file share website) or write me to obtain access to my FTP server.

And that’s it!  Have fun!  I’m excited to see what you come up with!

Let me know if you have any questions:
