Project progress and closing in on our first stretch goal
First off, I just wanted to say another huge thank you to all backers who pledged towards this project and helped bring it to life. And also, a big thanks to everybody who has supported the project via our Megafounder site. We are currently over $91,000 funded, which is actually not far off from our first stretch goal to produce even more fantastic artwork for the project. We still have units of the limited Collector’s Edition boxes available, just in case you’re interested in a second copy or know someone who would like to be involved but missed the original Kickstarter - now is the time to share the link!
I also wanted to take this opportunity to give you a quick update that things are currently progressing very nicely on the project. Our talented arranger Roger Wanamo is working very hard on all the scores and will continue to do so over the coming summer months. Arranging such an amount of music is a mammoth task, but Roger is well on track for having everything ready for the recording sessions later in the year. At the moment, he is working on scores for The Great Bath and Exploring Secret Dungeons.
We’re also making excellent progress on all the new original artwork that’s being produced. Our artists are doing a great job of bringing the original Turrican II artwork back to life and I think you will be very pleased with the final product. And don’t forget, once we reach that stretch goal we’ll have even more art to enjoy, plus the expanded vinyl packaging featuring six pages instead of four. Check out this amazing mock-up of how that might look like!
That’s why we're really hoping you can help spread the word once again and share the Megafounder link for everyone who may still be interested in getting their own copy of what will be a fantastic one-of-a-kind music album package.
Finally, if anyone is attending gamescom in Cologne this year: I will have my own small area at the huge Retro booth (Hall 10.2) to properly celebrate my 30's year in the games industry and I will be there all days of the show (18th – 21st of August). Stop by for a chat, photo opportunity and autograph! :)
