We have decided to host voting for the RAWdio music submissions on our Facebook page!

Here’s how it will work: Everyday for the rest of our Kickstarter campaign, we will post a poll question on this page for one of the song categories. The poll will be posted around 3pm and will run for about 48 hours. Seth and Clayton will have a final say on which submission wins, but your vote has a SIGNIFICANT influence.

Each winner will receive $25 USD plus 0.25% of the total profits from RAW for the first year. (Cash amount pending the success of the Kickstarter. All RAWdio contest rules apply.) So come vote for the music YOU want to hear in our upcoming game!

Our upcoming indie game RAW is about this Cyborg Juggernaut understanding his purpose - and what it means to choose the kind of person you want to be.

We at Detour Games are developing our latest independent video game, RAW, and we need audio! RAW is a 2D, action side-scroller that tells the story of a cyborg juggernaut finding his true purpose in a strange, new war-torn world. He will blast, smash, and dash his way through a comic that stretches six epic chapters!
Here’s where we need you! We are a small, indie team and we don’t have a dedicated sound guy. Instead, we are going to crowdsource all the in-game music and sound effects by offering prizes for submissions. From absolute amateurs to industry veterans, everyone is welcome to participate! All the information, including terms and conditions, general guidelines, and how to submit audio, can be found here.
The contest will go from October 10th until December 2nd, and afterwards we will be hosting public polls to help decide the winners. All serious submissions (whether chosen or not) will earn their creator a free copy of the game once it is released. What are you waiting for? The contest ends December 2nd so get started now!
