The Nubuwo website for videogame music news has launched a new album bundle project on Kickstarter. This time we are funding an event series and multimedia coverage from Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka, Japan.
Tokyo Gaming Showcase
Over a dozen indie game designers and chiptune artists are collaborating on the TOKYO GAMING SHOWCASE, a ten-album bundle and event series. Our events are marking the first ever performances of arrangements from the upcoming Street Fighter X Mega Man Remix Album composed by A_Rival.
Fully funded through Kickstarter, the indie score pack features the full soundtracks to THE SWAPPER, ANTICHAMBER, HIVERSAIRES, YEAR WALK and ROKKO CHAN.
The game-inspired pack showcases game-inspired music by MEGA RAN, DJ CUTMAN, MUTHERPLUCKIN' B, KOOPA SOUNDWORKS and A_RIVAL. All proceeds benefit the musicians and fund a series of events following the Tokyo Game Show.
The first show funded through the crowdfunding project was the TOKYO INDIE UNDERGROUND talk event taking place at 8bit Cafe in Shinjuku, including talks by the designers of They Bleed Pixels, Pavilion, C-Wars and Prismatic Solid.
Following TGS, we organized the TOKYO INDIE DANCE PARTY, with performances by the composers of OH DEER!, HIVERSAIRES, YEAR WALK, KIRA KIRA STAR NIGHT and STREET FIGHTER X MEGA MAN.
CHIP RIVALS OSAKA concluded the tour, bringing together international chiptune musicians A_Rival (USA), BOKKADENcI (Japan), HarleyLikesMusic (UK) and bryface (Canada) for the first time ever in the history of chip.
Recordings of the events can be viewed on Ustream and YouTube. Footage from these independently funded events will be presented more formally upon the successful completion of the Kickstarter project.
