This is a theme I would never, ever have thought of. Yet, it seems to obvious!

I'll almost certainly participate in this one! (if I don't get myself into another crazily ambitious project for the platformer album (which I also most certainly will happen)).

Be careful, as the next album will be the 1st under "Pixel Mixers" we'll let people vote (yeah i know this sucks :D)

The themes will be:
- Platform Games
- New Generation (games from 2010 to 2015)
- Airship & Sky Travel Themes
- Horror
- Tutorial, Title & Select your Character Themes
- Indie Games
- SNES Tribute
- Sci-Fi

IF ANYONE HAS AN OTHER IDEA FOR THE THEME OF THE NEXT ALBUM, TELL ME!
Could be pretty much anything, but it has to be a theme, not a Game or not a Game Serie ^^

Nop it just must be a cover of a song, or medley, from a MSX (1, 2 ,2+) game.
It has to be listanable on youtube or sondcloud.
You just have to post it here on this topic or on reddit in the comment section here: https://www.reddit.com/r/VGCovers/comments/3mwfcw/pixel_mixers_cover_con... and say something like "here is my entry" ^^

Ah, so it can be a medley. I didn't know that. I wish I would've known before I had already started. That information should be in the main post! :P
