      Jim Guthrie? Sweet!

      644! GOGOGO! This is gonna happen!

    3. Creator Genexi2 on May 20, 2014

      Wouldn't be a Harmonix rhythm game without a Freezepop contribution.

    4. Creator Rob on May 20, 2014

      YES! All great artists. This game is going to be sooo fun!

    5. Creator David Stephens on May 20, 2014

      So how about everyone just bumps themselves up a single pledge level? I'll do it if you will. :)

    6. Creator Vodka7up on May 20, 2014

      I think its gonna be hard but its still possible. If i'm not mistaken there was a big increase in pledges in the last couple of days. You should push this as much as possible, open new tiers, but i think your focus shpuld be on getting the people on the $20 tier to get it up to $40. Early access probably isn't enticing enough to get people to up their pledge, but maybe exclusive tracks, an exclusive blaster or another code to get a second copy (to give someone for example)? Out of the 4000+ $20 pledgers, if you can convince even half of them to up their pledge to $40, that's over 40.000$. Cmon guys you can do it!

    7. Creator Jo Vara on May 19, 2014

      Awwwww yiss!

    8. Creator Robert Kay on May 19, 2014

      Now i really want this to happen!!!

    9. Creator Tim Van Holder on May 19, 2014

    10. Creator Alex Ting on May 19, 2014

      SABREPULSE

    11. Creator Alex Ting on May 19, 2014

      YESSSS :D :D :D

    12. Creator Robert Smith on May 19, 2014

      Awesome choices! Try to get some Mangus "Souleye" Palsson in there. That guy is amazing.

    13. Creator Matt Macken on May 19, 2014

      Nice additions! I hope this works out and we can get our Amplitude!

    14. Creator /dev/null on May 19, 2014

      moar freezepops!

    15. Creator Fei on May 19, 2014

      Freezepop !!! Oh yes !

    16. Creator David Ville on May 19, 2014

      WOW O_O That "George & Jonathan" Page looks awesome.

      can't wait to play their level.

    17. Creator Peter Miller on May 19, 2014

      Freezepop! They alone are worth a pledge increase, for me at least.

    18. Creator Anthony Smith on May 19, 2014

      Awesome. Anamanaguchi and Danny Baranowsky were the two acts I suggested when this kickstarter was announced.

    19. Creator Devon Ferguson on May 19, 2014

      I pledged for the song senate tier just because I wanted George & Jonathan. You guys read my fucking mind. I so hope this game gets made

    20. Creator Ruby1 on May 19, 2014

      O.o I'm so excited I could open my bedroom window and yell! Woohooooo! ! !

    21. Creator Ian Farragher on May 19, 2014

      Freezepop!
      Now I want the record.
      Pledge upped.

    22. Creator misato on May 19, 2014

      I'm happy just with Freezepop! :D

    23. Creator Kevin Becker on May 19, 2014

      Make sure to have these bands promote the kickstarter on their websites & social media!

    24. Creator Matthew Fry on May 19, 2014

      Good grief. I will be so disappointed in the music gaming community if this does not succeed. I'm so excited about this. I'm listening to Freezepop (for the first time in like a decade) and it is evoking memories of Frequency and epic 4 player Amplitude matches between my family members.

      I think big publishers completely oversaturated the music game market and it is now collapsing under its own weight. I don't blame Harmonix in particular. I've worked in game development and I know that you take whatever contracts you can. I really hope that if (unfortunately, more like when) this fails, you guys seek out alternate methods to fund this. Maybe some sort of paypal open pledging system a la inXile and Portalarium that will allow you to continually build your budget as its spent. It's super scary, I know. You might also consider an initial PC-only release and build the income through Steam and Early Access.

    26. Creator Brandon Bee on May 19, 2014

      Wow. This is fantastic. Hopefully this will get on the big sites and draw people in.

    27. Creator David Piggott on May 19, 2014

      Well, if I wasn't hoping that it would get funded before, seeing Freezepop on that list sure makes me hope so now.

    28. Creator James Closs on May 19, 2014

      I think this update is gonna draw people in.

    29. Creator Brian Silva on May 19, 2014

      @Spencer Kasson actually has been out in Seattle working at Microsoft for a while soooo

    30. Creator William Walint on May 19, 2014

      My friends suck and won't contribute, I can't even convince the one I got to play and love the original. :( I've already upped my pledge to the maximum my wallet will allow. I'll be so sad if this fails.

    31. Creator Christian Klaproth on May 19, 2014

      This update is amazing. I hope for some kind of pledge wonder. ;)

    32. Creator Federelli on May 19, 2014

      Best of luck on your last stretch guys, i´m a big fan of your games. Perhaps a $30 and $50 tier might help?

    33. Creator chris baima on May 19, 2014

      All out of family members :-(

    34. Creator Harmonix Music Systems on May 19, 2014

      @Leishycat - you are correct! Changed it! :)

    35. Creator Spencer Williams on May 19, 2014

      If you can't get Kasson to contribute, you could fire him I suppose. :)

    36. Creator Curtis Hynes on May 19, 2014

      Awesome list! Loved Scott Pilgrim's music

    37. Creator David Pearson on May 19, 2014

      Freezepop is awesome

    38. Creator Scott Tremper on May 19, 2014

      Anamanaguchi and George & Jonathan? This is the greatest day of my life.

    39. Creator Leishycat on May 19, 2014

      Shouldn't that be Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World? As far as I know, there isn't anything about him saving the world at any point.

    40. Creator Paul Sunner on May 19, 2014

      I love this entire list!

    41. Creator Hallvard A. Ulsund on May 19, 2014

      Incredible!
      I'm a fan of all these guys :D
