Fund a CD release for the Rokko Chan arrangement compilation, and discover a diverse bundle of videogame-related music.

What are we looking to create with this Kickstarter project?

We are Nubuwo, a source for videogame music information published in English and Japanese.  Our aim is to develop a 2-CD original and arranged soundtrack album for browser game Rokko Chan, with disc design by illustrator DotA.  The original score, by Hokkaido-based composer Asagen, would be joined by numerous arrangements by international artists.

Proceeds of this Kickstarter project will benefit the bundle's eight participating musicians and represent the first source of funding for the Rokko Chan team, following the successful two-year development of the Flash game.
