    The EXTENDED DIGITAL ONLY REWARD TIER! A new challenger arises!

    The PART OF THE ALBUM tier! It's common for backers to get "special thanks" credit on projects. What's NOT common is this: Send me a mugshot of your lovely face. I will have it turned into a custom pixellated avatar by one of my artists and print your name AND your custom face in the album. You will officially be PART OF THE ALBUM ART. I personally don't know of any other rewards like this, so I'm VERY EXCITED to offer it :) Additionally you'll receive all rewards listed above this tier.

    "I'd rather have a T-shirt" Same as above, but instead of letting me put your pixellated alter ego in my album you just want a BGC t-shirt instead. I personally think the custom pixel face is way cooler, but I guarantee that the shirt will look amazing with one of Ian Wilding's designs on it :)

    If you have A.D.D. like me, just merely sitting and talking can sometimes be boring! Instead of skyping with you about things, I'll invite you to play a couple rounds of Left 4 Dead with me and my fellow music buddies, like C418, dannyB, Coestar, artist Paul Hubans, and more. Be warned, this tier is not for the faint of heart :) If you're not into L4D then I'll let you pick any other game of your choosing (assuming I have it). You'll also receive all rewards from the $150 tier and higher.

You pick it, I'll do it to the best of my ability! You also get all previous rewards above. Remix delivery depends on my schedule, but I promise a reasonable turn around once the album is released. ADDITIONALLY (and since there was never a physical copy of the soundtrack created) I will send you a signed physical copy of Mass Effect 2 instead.
