The rules: All songs must be written in pure LSDJ, using a single gameboy (any model) or emulator, with absolutely no processing or effects. No gameboy modifications which affect the sound (other than prosound or RCA outputs) can be used. Custom kits are allowed. This is an LSDJ song writing competition, nothing else besides LSDJ should be featured on the track.
NoiChan core staff and judges are forbidden from competing. We’re looking for original songs, not covers. This year we’ve changed the rules to allow 2 entries per contestant, any extras will not be counted. Any alteration of the file once it has been posted may result in disqualification. Any attempts to enter more than 2 songs by using a different screen name may also result in disqualification. Please limit songs to 6 minutes or 10mb, in MP3 format only. Your entries do not need to be new songs, so long as they match the rules above.
NoiChan staff will select 10 finalists, which will then be scored by our judges. Winners will be selected from the top 3 average scores.
Songs will be scored based on 3 criteria: Talent, Appeal, & Creativity.
The Prizes: Each of our 3 winners will receive a modified gameboy. All gameboys will feature prosound and backlight modifications.
2nd Place: 1 backlit, prosound, underclockable gameboy.
3rd Place: 1 backlit, prosound, gameboy pocket.
