Volume 5 Progress Report

Posted by

Sup y’all? =) President Hoodie here with a quick update to the progress of ‘Chiptunes = WIN: Volume 5′ along with some interesting thoughts from this year’s judging panel.

First up, as you’ve all probably noticed by now (what with our daily reminders and all〜(꒪꒳꒪)〜), the V.5 submission deadline has been extended from June 12th to June 19th. As of this publication, there’s a little less than a week remaining for all tracks to be finalized and submitted. So everyone, get ’em done and get ’em in! Once that’s wrapped up, we’ll begin the judging period of the project, which’ll likely take a couple of weeks to lock in. Don’t worry, I’ll entertain you with some quality #JudgesTweets during that process. ಠ‿↼

Regarding album artwork, how about a blurry sneak peek of the work in progress?

Rest easy, Nate Horsfall is proving himself a badass *YET AGAIN*.

Volume 4 submissions CLOSED! #StayTuned

Posted by

And just like that, another ChipWIN Volume submission period has come and gone. 

Now on to the really tough part: THE JUDGING & ROSTER SELECTION.

Rest assured that, for the next week or two, the ChipWIN V.4 Judges Team will be working really gorram hard to get everything squared away as swiftly as we possibly can without sacrificing the integrity of the project (appx 2-3 weeks).

And, of course, as soon as the roster is 100%, we’ll announce it here on the blog & fire out it through all ChipWIN social media salvos!

SO STAY TUNED TO CHIPWIN CHANNELS YO!!!!

In the meantime, here’s a very terribly blurred WIP of Nate’s Volume 4 album artwork. #SuchATease ;)
