Ever wonder how to get your songs on your favorite video game?
#1
I know for a fact I have. And I found that (Yes I have tried this) contacting the company in question is a potential way to have them use your song(s) somewhere in the game. Of course the song has to be 100% yours and/or free of any potential copyright infringements. Of course you would need to sound like someone interested in doing business with them. Make yourself look like a businessman...on paper anyway. The more "prepared" you are, the more likely they will be willing to work with you. I am in no way saying that I have had any of my songs published by any companies. I am simply stating that this is a potential way to do so. If you are having troubles, try a different company. Lather, rinse, repeat

this is a "Commonsense" statement....its relevant in all walks of life, which makes your post irrelevant due to the fact it should be commonsense anyway!

Keyword "Should". Not everyone realizes that this is the best if not the only way for a lott of companies to get a hold of your music. There are too many people who do the "I'll just put this song up online and maybe somebody from a label or company will find it" thing. This ONLY works in movies. Rarely does anyone get "Discovered" anymore. You want to be known, you make a name for yourself. However this is not always the case. As I said it is RARE to be discovered (especially in the music industry) But there are a lot of people who still "submit" songs this way. In fact there are actually a few companies, labels, etc. that rely on this method seeing as they probably get hundreds to thousands of submission a day from all kinds of people. The "fact" that my post is commonsense is a misconception seeing as not all facets of life are like that. Granted a wide majority of them are, there are still those that go out themselves looking for someone to work with.

Thanks for the advice Xayne. I make my own music, but it's been a several years since I made anything new. However, when I do, I'm wondering how I can contact Nintendo or a small, creative video game company for submitions. I also want to make my own video games someday as well. I thought about maybe getting into the video game Ios market, since that seems to be where its at now.
