    THE COMPLETE VIRT COLLECTION: This one's for all you mega-fans of Jake "virt" Kaufman, the composer / co-director of [NUREN]: All of the above, plus digital downloads of EVERY SINGLE ALBUM Jake has ever released on Bandcamp (15 soundtracks and original albums, including Shovel Knight and the Shantae series!) PLUS a brand new bonus album, only for backers, containing material that has never before been released on Bandcamp!

    Jake and Jessie will be there to guide the process, and will have the final say regarding thematic consistency and appropriateness (i.e. no Hatsune Miku -- leave that to the modding community) but if you're backing us at this level, you clearly care about the project, and we think you'll come up with amazing concepts that we can turn into virtual reality!
