Let's make some tunewrecks.

Whats' a tunewreck? Take the spirit of making a trainwreck and channel it into making a song. So this event is for submitting music, not games! Make a quick and terrible song in whatever way works for you (make it on a computer, make it on a drum machine, make it on a saucepan...), turn it into an audio file, and submit it as you would a regular game (you can now upload mp3, off, wav, and flac files)

It'd like to combine everything submitted into a single mix tape/CD/playlist/whatever they're called now, and make that available as a single download on here too. If you submit more than one thing please nominate one to be the entry for the compilation, and if you would rather not be included in that please let me know somehow. I'll make some album art.

NB: You're making a tunewreck, so please don't agonise over it for the full two weeks. Make something quick, and make a bunch of things if you feel inspired. Take less or more time if you need. Start early and/or finish late if you need. Don't pressure yourself please. I hate the pressure of game jams.

There's no theme (maybe there will be in future events?), but if you want some starting points:

I don't know any really good resources for finding music easy to use making tools, but I'll put some links here as I think of them.

Only the images with KNP graphics in them work, very mysterious (oh, it was weird jpeg settings (arithmetic coding))

yes !

yes !


here are some links that might be helpful:
has an online tool to make music (and you can just use a google account to log in)
is a pretty good offline tool
has plenty of free PD loops (once you get through all the popups)

i use for the music idk what the learning curve is; it's pretty robust yet the interface is way simpler than other music tools i've tried

So hypes for this!

Can't wait to make some trainwreck music :)

I'm probably missing

I'm probably missing something obvious but I can't see an end date?

No, you're right, the end date was set the same as the start date, so it wasn't shown. I've set it now, duration is about two weeks.
