Jägermeister’s Track and Build initiative extends competition deadline

The Jägermeister Track and Build initiative has extended the deadline for its 2020 competition.

With “an ambition of bringing together the exciting worlds of video games and leading-edge music”, Jägermeister is looking for an indie game due for release in 2020 for which cinematic bass duo Koven – who had produced tracks for Rocket League and Driveclub – can create a soundtrack.

The competition has extended its qualifying period, so indie studios interested in taking part can submit a free entry from now until April 3rd, 2020, giving an overview of their game, a demo trailer, and “any other assets you have”. The winning studio will be announced at the beginning of April.

London-based cinematic bass duo Koven is the production alias of producer Max Rowat and Katie Boyle and have worked on tracks for Rocket League and Driveclub.

“We’re really excited to be bringing back Track and Build for 2020,” said Jägermeister’s Music Manager Tom Carson. “At Jägermeister we have a strong history of supporting emerging talent within the music industry and we want to do the same across the games industry. The first Track and Build initiative proved that we can bring the worlds of music and games closer together – we look forward to doing it again in 2020.”

Koven added: “We have a fondness for the video games scene and we’re delighted to be working with Jägermeister again for the next instalment of the Track and Build initiative. We’re looking forward to seeing the great games submitted – and to working with the winning team!”

The inaugural Track and Build competition – which launched in December 2018 – saw Cold Beam Games’ Beat Hazard 2 picked as the winning game. The electronic artist ROY was picked as the winning composer for his track ‘You Know’ which was exclusively produced by Koven for the game.
