All you have to do is create a short video of your own musical rendition of the Final Fantasy "Main Theme". I took the opportunity to try to turn this news report into an entry for the contest. I probably won't win.

We never covered the Rhythm Destruction Kickstarter, but it did fine without us, making more than 120% (wow!) of its $2000 (oh) goal. Mashing up a shmup with a rhythm game seems a little weird to think about, but after watch...
