Yuzo Koshiro Vinyl Retro Remix, Vinyl Cover Art, Multiple pledges
I came back from Germany a few days ago and have some very exciting news about the project!
New Vinyl record details:
I'm very happy to annouce that our artist for the special retro remix will be Yuzo Koshiro from Japan, who doesn't really need an introduction for many of you. Mr. Koshiro's work is legendary among game music enthusiasts and I'm a big fan myself. We are extremely fortunate and thankful that he is available and willing to work on our project. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yuzo_Koshiro
For the vinyl record artwork we just signed an artist by the name of Junkboy, who creates amazing pixel art, which we feel will make the cover for the record extra special. Examples of his work can be found on various websites like Deviant Art: http://jnkboy.deviantart.com/
Reward upgrades planned:
We are currently looking into ways to enhance and upgrade some of the existing rewards and the first on the list is the poster level ($100+), for which backers will now get at least 2 posters (since we now have more than one artist working on the project and that means more than one artwork). More upgrades are planned and will be revealed soon...
How to get additional box sets, posters, vinyls etc.:
We had a few requests from backers who would like to get multiple items for friends or family members or like to get combinations of rewards that are not covered by the current pledge levels. We think we have worked out a way of how to offer that:
Additional items or combinations can be pledged for through Paypal (and with reduced costs, except for the box set) 'if' a backer has already pledged at least once for a reward item of an equal or higher pledge level. Here's a list of additional item pledges and examples:
- Additional USB Drive (the memory stick): $25
- Additional Poster Set & Autograph Card: $25
- Additional limited edition box set: $50
- Additional Vinyl record: $75
Original pledge of $75 for the USB drive level - get an additional USB drive through Paypal for $25
Original pledge of $500 for the special supporter level - get an additional Poster Set & Autograph Card through Paypal for $25
Original pledge of $250 for the Vinyl record level - get an additional Vinyl record through Paypal for $75
Original pledge of $200 for the credit level - get an additional Poster Set/Autograph Card ($25) and another box set ($50) through Paypal for $75
***Example of what is not allowed: Original pledge of $50 and additional pledge of $75 for an additional vinyl record - you must upgrade to the vinyl level first (upgrading through Paypal is allowed of course)!
Go to our Paypal page and use the "Any amount..." Paypal link: http://turricansoundtrack.com/paypal/
- write your original pledge level and what the additional pledge is for in the "add special instructions to the seller" section.
Disclaimer: All additional items are going to be limited to 3 per backer and are also 'only' available until the end of the funding campaign (June 3rd)!
That's all for this update, but we are working on more cool stuff, so stay tuned! And I'm also already working on the music, specially the first track that I promised to deliver before June 3rd to every backer at $5 and above... it's progressing nicely! Btw: Thanks to all of you we are now already in the top 3 of the most funded Kickstarter music projects of all time!
