Jägermeister launches new soundtrack competition for indie developers

Jägermeister has launched a new "Track and Build" video game soundtrack competition.

Teaming up with bass duo Koven – the team behind the trailer music for Driveclub and Rocket League‘s ‘My Love’ track – the competition will search for a game studio to work with Koven on an "exclusive track" for one of its upcoming games. The free competition is open to all indie studios who are releasing a game in 2019.

To enter, head on over to www.trackandbuild.io now with an overview of your game, demo trailer and any other assets you have. The competition closes February 15th 2019, after which the shortlist of games will be revealed. The winning studio will be announced at the end of February, and then get the chance to have a game track for its game produced by Koven.

"We’re incredibly excited about the Track and Build competition, as it represents our first steps into the games sector," said Jägermeister’s Music Manager Tom Carson. "Thanks to our friends at Koven, we can offer a games studio the unique opportunity to have a track created for them by artists who have already made a name for themselves in the genre through their work on Rocket League."

"This is such a mad and exciting opportunity for us to be a part of, and for anyone who we end up working with!" added Koven. "We are so pleased to be involved and look forward to going through the entries."

Jägermeister also teases that it will "announce a further element to the Track and Build competition" in the New Year, which it believes "will engage with the composer community on the initiative".
