New project coming and Matt Gray's music - Go Ninja, go! :)


Hi Everyone,

It's been a while - I was very busy over the summer with several new projects (Touchfish on iOS for example is out now), some of which will be announced very soon!

In the meantime, if you may not have heard of it yet, I would like you to check out the "Reformation" album that my friend and fellow C64 composer Matt Gray is currently funding here on Kickstarter: 

Matt secured the funding for a double CD set on the very first day of his campaign. I assume most of Matt's backers are particularly excited by the limited "Last Ninja 2" soundtrack CD which you can find among the pledge levels. If his funding reaches the next stretch goal at 60k, Matt will add another CD to the "Reformation" box set... if I have counted right, everybody who has pledged at least 35 GBP (like myself) would receive no less than five CDs in that case! :) To make things even more interesting, I have agreed to create two remixes of Matt's classic C64 themes if the campaign reaches 75k, so let's see if we can make that happen!

And finally, this Saturday I will also have some very exciting news of my own to share. Stay tuned! :­)


Time for a special treat!

Shipping progress and some frequent questions answered


The shipping is going pretty well and we have now mailed the majority of packages. There are still a number packages with multiple items for backers in the USA that we have to send out, which will happen in the next few days.

Now for some Q&A:

Q: My package arrived, but not all items were included. Is this a mistake?

A: Some items (like the vinyl) ship from a different warehouse and some items had to be sent separately for other reasons, so please be patient for a few days. If you have not received anything in a week, please contact us again through 

Q: It seems everyone else got their package, but I didn’t yet, why?

A: Some destinations take longer for delivery, especially outside of Germany.

Q: My USB Stick doesn’t seem to work on my Computer. Do I have a defective unit?

A: We have gotten a number of reports about this issue and are investigating the problem and a possible solution. From what we have gathered so far, the data is on the stick, but certain Computer/OS configurations (mainly Windows 7 64bit) have trouble reading from the stick, likely due to a driver or other software incompatibility. And while we are searching for a solution, you could maybe try it on a different computer.

Q: My CD arrived damaged / the case is broken, how do I get a replacement?

A: There are several options to fix this issue: if the print materials and the CDs themselves are not damaged, you could buy a 4 CD case and repair it yourself (and we could possibly send you money for the replacement case) - or - we send you an empty CD case for the repair - or - we can exchange the whole CD Box (we would send you a new box and probably a return envelope with postage). If you have additional questions, please use the contact form on 

Q: Why did I have to pay additional postage to receive my vinyl?

A: Our shipper calculated the shipping to the best of their knowledge, but in some cases the postal service deems that it wasn't enough and tries to collect additional fees from the recipient. This should not have happened and you definitely have a choice to not accept the package and have the postal service return it. We will then have the shipper mail it out again with the needed additional postage. If you decide to accept the package and pay the fee, we could reimburse you, but it would be a bit complicated with paypal or bank transfer procedures and fees involved - please use this option with this disclaimer in mind.

If you have additional questions, post here or write us at and we will try our best to answer.

ps: thanks for all the positive feedback, feels great! :)

It’s shipping time!

Finally, the time has come to ship “The Turrican Soundtrack Anthology”! :)

We’re very excited to report that all elements are now in place and that packages are being prepared and sent out beginning right now.

It’s been a long journey, but hopefully you’ll find that it was worth the wait when you finally hold the results in your hands. Your feedback after the digital download was already a big confirmation that we did everything right with the music production, but now we’re excited to find out what you think about the physical product. All I can say is that it felt fantastic when we unwrapped the first unit. It’s very solid and the prints came out beautiful:

We’ll update you on the shipping progress (watch the comments section too) and hopefully you’ll receive your package in a few days. Enjoy!
