Also, we're making the exception from the rules: music that was written for movies but is used in games is allowed this month. You can cover that main theme or Imperial March all you want (if they are in the game you're covering)!

The banner is by incredible fedde of Game-Art HQ.

Songs are due December 27th, 3PM EST
