4th CD Goal, Original Music, Paypal Option

Hi everyone,

I'm currently on a business trip in Germany, but managed to work towards our stretch goals and record a video with all the latest news:


4th CD addition

We calculated the additional budget, which we'll need to include a 4th CD into the box set and incredibly, we are as of this day already less than 8.5k away from reaching our new goal of 95k! So at this point it looks very good for that addition. Everyone who pledged for the box set will enjoy another full CD with more arranged tracks (mostly from the console episodes "Super Turrican" 1 & 2 as well as Mega Turrican).

Original Music

Many of you have requested if it would be possible to include the music from the original games as well, not just the studio versions and we have thought long about how we could make that happen. Additional CDs would be too expensive, make the box set too big and just offering them for download would probably not cover the cost of recording them, especially if you (like us) want quality recordings. But we think we have a good solution and compromise: we set up a new $75 dollar pledge level, that will get you an additional USB memory stick with the original game music, recorded from the real hardware systems (please add $10 for international shipping for this level). Everyone who already pledged above $75 will get this memory stick included with their other rewards for free. The stick will feature a unique and (hopefully) cool design that will fit with our art. We will tell you more about the design at a later date.

Paypal and bank transfer

For those of you who can't get access to a credit or prepaid card at all, we are now including the option to contribute via Paypal and bank transfer. We set up a special page at our main project site turricansoundtrack.com and we will update the amount of pledges on that page daily, so you can see exactly where we are with our total budget. We did think about this option for a while, but couldn't offer it earlier because it could have potentially harrmed the overall success of our Kickstarter campaign. So please if you already pledged here, don't cancel your pledge on Kickstarter because of these new donation options.

Thanks again everyone for your incredible support of the project and my team and I are extremely happy about our progress and the chance to bring you one of the greatest game soundtrack album projects ever. I will be checking in next week with more news and you can always email me with questions and suggestions! :)

-Chris & the Turrican Soundtrack Anthology Team

      Ich denke mal die Music Box wird ruck zuck ausverkauft sein! :-)

    3. Creator Phoenixwi on May 4, 2012

      Well I have now changed my pledge from 50 $ to 75 $ because I want original music in very good quality and support Chris for this idea.

    4. Creator Sprudel on May 4, 2012

      @ZeusC2: For shipping of the Box Set OUTSIDE of Germany, please add 10 USD

    5. Creator Andrew on May 3, 2012

      Great update - also upgraded myself to the $75 bracket. Out of interest, what capacity will the USB sticks be? and how many tracks do you plan to put on them (assuming you have thought that far ahead ;)

    6. Creator ZeusC2 on May 3, 2012

      If my shipping address is in germany, i do not have to pay the extra 10 $, is this right?

    7. Creator Gordon Salzmann on May 2, 2012

      Great news! Just changed my pledge from 50 (+10 for shipping to Europe) to 75 (+10). Can't wait to get and hear the final product.

    8. Creator Radio PARALAX on May 2, 2012

      It seems that we've read this update lo late before posting our last comment! 4th CD is sure! YEAH!!! Finally Super Turrican 2 completely. :-)))

      Chris, please also don't forget to include loading tune from T2 (Amiga Version) and some extended end bosses tunes as bonus tracks. :-)

    9. Creator Chris Huelsbeck on May 2, 2012

      Yes, I forgot to mention, for all packages under $100, please add $10 for international shipping.

    10. Creator Mahenou on May 2, 2012

      Wow ! Now I'm beginning to worry a little ! With a this additional content, will you make any "profit" at all ? (building additional CDs, buying and customizing USB sticks etc. !).

    11. Creator crscamp on May 2, 2012

      How much shipping cost of USB memory stick for outside Germany?

    12. Creator Shadow on May 2, 2012

      Now that's what I'm talking about! Awesome news, Chris! :D I might just have to up my pledge to $75 for that incredible original music. I'm also keen on USB sticks for music because I won't have to worry about information loss like when extracting data music from a CD. I wish more people would offer this as an option.

    13. Creator iFreak on May 2, 2012

      Super Lösung mit dem Stick. Danke, dass Ihr alle Spender ab 100 Dollar automatisch upgradet. :)

    14. Creator SEBO on May 2, 2012

      Upped to 75$. Yay for the original tracks&the awesome USB stick idea :)

    15. Creator Zoe Nolan on May 2, 2012

      I'm guessing the new $75 level also extra $10 for shipping outside Germany?

    16. Creator tarasis on May 2, 2012

      So damn tempting. Ack who am I kidding, consider my pledge up'ed
