EDIT: I swapped out the original version for this one, it's MUCH cleaner and everything sits better in the mix  ;)

Would it be acceptable to include a short intro? (As in, the intro before the title screen)
Or do you just want the menu theme?

I'm kinda confused now, it's "arrange a theme to make it sound like a menu/screen one" or "compose an original piece that servers for the same purpose"?

I was thinking more along the lines of take a theme from a menu or title screen of any CV and do your thing with it

I would say anything would be open game from any title, menu theme etc.

I understand this as making main title functioning menu music.

All I have is one vote, but here is what I'll be listening for.

*A melody (hook) that sticks with you long after you hear it.

*A song that sets a mood for the hypothetical game.

*People stay in menus. I'll be listening for a nice seamless loop.

*A strong direction, and a straightforward arrangement that introduces the theme melody quickly, but tastefully.

*Original melodies (not a requirement I believe). Just saying that because that's what I want to vote for.

I'm pretty obsessed with themes and little melodies that linger in your head. I'm excited to hear what you guys come up with. I'd be participating if I weren't needing every spare second to finish my work. But it will be fun to listen and vote!

Happy composing friends!

Agreed with Belmontoya.

Also, maybe we should PM our entries to Shiroi instead of posting them here? And maybe limiting to one "main" entry (one people can vote for) and keep other ones as "bonus"?

Since people can edit/delete their entries, just post them all here. I'm just lazy...

As for one main entry or multiple entries, I need to know the consensus of the group.
