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!

    THE BOSS: You get an executive producer credit for the entire project. This is largely a ceremonial role, since we cannot ask people to pay us to give them a job.. but we will be open to your input and ideas throughout the production, and your name will be right alongside ours in the credits.

    *Note: This includes all of the above, EXCEPT "THE DIRECTOR'S CHAIR" and "[NUREN] WORLD TOUR" since those limited slots are reserved for their respective tiers. But you'll get to hang out with all the guest directors, too.
