Pixel Mixers October Cover Contest Results

A new contest ended, in October the theme was “Note Limitation“.
The goal was to put people in a situation when they were forced to only have 3 notes going on at the same time (+ percussions) to see how creative they can get.

We got 8 participants, but the 2 leaders of the 2017 Championship (Hashel 140pts & Subversiveasset 139pts) skipped that one.

With only 2 months left we’ll soon know who will be the 2017 Pixel Mixers Cover Champion…
But if November will be a normal contest (the theme is “Real Time Strategy Games“, you can participate here: http://bit.ly/2hxeUNT) there is going to have a special contest in December that will give A LOT of points, so everything is still open for the final victory!

Here is the championship so far: http://bit.ly/2xMbQUa

And now the results from October Contest!

  • Audio 1st place: Team Friesen
  • Audio 2nd place: Orchestral Fantasy
  • Audio 3rd place: Psycosulu
  • Video 1st place: StyrofoamShotgun
  • Video 2nd place: Danilo Ciaffi
  • Video 3rd place: Psycosulu

Thanks a lot and congratulations to all the participants, and see you next month!
