In honor of next week’s big E3 video-game convention, this week’s Name that Tech Tune contest digs into the archives for a true classic.

Can you identify the game franchise associated with the song below? If so, you’ll have a chance to win a free ticket to the GeekWire launch bash, June 22 at the Showbox Sodo in Seattle.

Here’s how the contest works: Listen to the clip below, and if you know what the sound is, send the answer to todd@geekwire.com. From the pool of correct answers, we’ll select two winners at random. Each of those winners will receive a free ticket to the big party.

Stumped? We gave a ton of clues when we played the song on the GeekWire Podcast this week, with our guests Monica Guzman Preston and Jason Preston. Listen to the segment below.

Send your entry to todd@geekwire.com. Check back next week for the answer, and the winners, and stay tuned for the full podcast later this morning — it’s a fun one.

Update: Here’s the full podcast: Groupon’s IPO, Microsoft’s Windows 8, and Twitter’s role in the world

Update, 6/11: As many of you knew, the answer was the “Legend of Zelda” theme. Congrats to our winners Devin Miller and Larry Senechal, drawn from the pool of about 30 correct answers we received.
