Red's word: Vostok Games is an ukrainian video game developer mostly known for having formerly work on the mythical "S.T.A.L.K.E.R" series ( a very athmospheric open world game based on a classic of Russian science fiction). They are now making a new strong title (in closed beta, unless you pay for it) called Survarium. The pitch: to sum it up, nature stikes back and it's no happy. Vegetation, Gaïa, whatever you want to call it turns back on mankind and comes pretty close to eradicate our kind, especially cities etc before stabilising. In this workd of dangerous ecological anomalies (spores, chemicals, radioactive minerals etc.) the survivors do what men do best: fight against each other for ressources.
Why explaining this ? Because you need to get the mood to be able to participate to their contest. To help you more on this, a few extra videos. Trailer:
This one you absolutely want to see even if you don't have any interest in this contest, this event, or videogames. There is a man sampling burning pianos. I repeat. There is a man sampling burning pianos.
Prizes are mostly symbolical (except exposure of course) and competition is already fierce (check the soundcloud players). Still Ohm Studio musicians are well known to be the most gifted, handsomest beasts around and with a good smelling breath too, so who knows?
