Hi Everyone!,

WOW!!  What a 1st day!  Over $85,000 and 57% funded!  A GREAT way to get out of the gate!  We were the #2 TOP PROJECT in the Video Game category for most of the day yesterday... but then, around midnight we took the top spot!

I also spoke to one of the V.P.'s of Kickstarter yesterday and they will be featuring the project on the front page as a Top Pick sometime this week or next!  That will be a huge push for us. 

I also printed up over 30,000 LEVEL 6 Kickstarter flyers that I will be distributing to our next 21 shows!  Part of the reason I made the project 60 days is because we have a ton of shows in places like Fort Wayne, IN, Denver, CO, Phoenix, AZ, 3 in Florida and 14 all across Canada!  So I'll be putting flyers on every single seat in the house as well as at the Meet & Greet tables after the show.  I'll also be talking about the project briefly on stage and showing a 4 minute trailer of the project during the intermission and right before the show starts!  I also started Facebook, Instagram & Twitter advertising and will be incorporating Google/YouTube in a few weeks.

Tomorrow (Thursday) at 6PM Pacific/9PM Eastern I'm going to be doing a LIVE STREAM on Kickstarter!!  They didn't have this the past 3 projects I did... so it will be interesting and I look forward to meeting and interacting with everyone!  Here is the link!  Please sign up, spread around the link and join the fun!

OKAY... you guys ready for something a little different?  Check out this video we put together to tease the Donkey Kong Country piano album!  Everyone in the $25 tier or higher will be getting a copy!  If you're in the $10 tier right now... come on up!  Not only will you receive LEVEL 6 in 24bit, 96KHz completely uncompressed .wav format (trust me... it makes a HUGE difference!  Especially with orchestral music!)... but you'll also get the Donkey Kong Country piano album and a special edition LEVEL 5 album with never before released LIVE tracks like Okami and Chrono from LEVEL 5! (just to name a few).

Okay... here's the video.  Enjoy!  :)  I wanted to show this to everyone here FIRST... but I'll be posting it on all of our social media... so please SHARE with everyone and don't forget to include the LEVEL 6 Kickstarter link!  Lets shoot for some of those stretch goals so we can get MORE songs on the album!!

Oh!!  And one FINAL thing about the DKC album!  Within the next week or so we will be announcing a VERY SPECIAL video game composer guest performer who will be performing on the album!  Hmm??  I wonder who it could be!  :)

Please leave comments and I'll answer every one!

      Even more games that I thought of that would be awesome to hear: Abzu and Stardew Valley

      SO excited to back this! My biggest wish-list would be either a medley of Kirby's Adventure soundtrack from the NES, and/or, since Pokemon is going to be a thing, maybe a Pokemon Snap mix? Oh oh, and maybe some Animal Crossing thrown into the mix for some ambiance? "1 AM" from City Folk is my favorite chill-out song!

      Speaking of Rare music, I'd love to see an orchestrated version of something from Banjo-Kazooie. Grant Kirkhope comes across as very approachable, too.

      @Niko'sSwabbie: I'll be doing a European time zone one next time!

      @Gidi: I'll put it on my "to do" list!

      @Riccardo: Thanks for the continued support!!

      @Veviane: That would be amazing! Although I think I would need to do another Kickstarter just to afford her I think! :D

      @Flávio Piro de Oliveira: Thanks!! Glad to have you back once again!!

      One reason to back VGL projects are updates like this. Thanks for the video :).
      What a pity that the live stream will be at 3am here in Austria. Let's see if I can make it.

      Congrats on a fantastic first day! I'm excited to be supporting my fourth VGL Kickstarter!

      I still think you should invite Amy Lee to sing something for Level 6.
