Have a question?
All backer rewards shipped some time ago. Please send word if you are currently waiting on any items.
I am aligning all the deadlines so that the Blu-ray discs and digital remix album ship September at the latest, prior the Tokyo Game Show. Let me know if I can answer further questions by email.
Just out of curiosity, but where are things at for the blu-ray?
I'm absolutely loving OMF by A_RIVAL. Such a great song, great beats, and makes me incredibly nostalgic for giant fighting robots.
"Antichamber Suite I" - I honestly wished I could say the entire album, since it's easily one of the most ambitious scores for an equally ambitious game that I've heard in quite some time but since I have to narrow it down to a single track, I chose this.
Why I chose this track above the rest of the album is because it reminded me the most of a track one might easily hear in a film these days, encompassing the right amount of complex textured sounds with that subtle ambient grace that could accompany a wide array of visuals - be it a shower of comets rolling through a vast expanse of space or even elaborately constructed cinematography shots of a city just about to emerge from a collective slumber.
lightning man stage - Rokko Chan is my current favorite. I have the whole bundle on shuffle, and this song in particular gave me a pretty significant boost of inspiration / motivation!
The SF X MM remix album is being submitted for mastering next week. The Showcase Overview video will be edited after I've filmed interviews with the Square Sounds organizers in Tokyo. There are no plans at the moment for a general release of the video.
My favorite track is 'Young Girl w/Sammus" by Mega Ran and Sammus from the Castlevania: The Nocturnal Cantata (which was part of the Game-Inspired Pack).
I'm usually not a huge fan of rap but this track, and the whole of Nocturnal Cantata is fantastic. Symphony of the Night already had a wide variety of musical styles and most of the adaptations on Nocturnal Cantata are pretty amazing but this one in particular stands out to me.
I find the dueling vocals of "Maria" and "Alucard" and how it tells more of the story between these two characters that is only hinted at in the game really fascinating. It also gives Maria more characterization than the game ever does; portraying her as a strong and independent adventure on equal footing to Alucard.
By the way, the reward tier for the SF X MM Remix mentions that the album will be available later but it's not clear to me if the "Showcase Overview" video mentioned is also planned as later as well. No rush, was just curious.
Thanks for the quick sending of codes! Am enjoying my albums (slowly, tons of music!!). :)
There might be another album bundle promotion in the future, but nothing has been decided yet. Please send a message if you have not yet received your download codes through the email associated with your Kickstarter account.
We're currently running a promotion with Analogue: A Hate Story composer Isaac Schankler. Leave the name of your favorite track from the bundle and why you like it here in the comments section, with Cheapbeats albums also being eligible, for a chance to receive one of ten download codes for his instrumental single "It's Not Ero."
Got my album rewards overnight. Really enjoying all the music.
Even though I had a few of the albums already I just wanted to say thanks again for doing these bundles every couple months; they've helped me discover some great artists I probably wouldn't have come across otherwise. Your site does a great job of this too.
Please post an update to this project if you decide to run another Kickstarter in the future.
Several of the backer reward tiers have already received the bundle and the rest are on their way today via Constant Contact.
so when we will get the albums
We've got a few tracks left to be turned in for the Game-Inspired pack and then the digital albums will ship via the Constant Contact mailing service.
Extremely glad it got funded, I found out about this last minute and had to give my two cents [figuratively speaking of course].
Thank goodness it got funded.
Funded! I look forward to getting my Flash Drive, and I can't wait for the next KS in December :)
Major Grats and you're still going!
Many thanks to everyone who contributed their efforts toward the funding of this project! Time to get the album bundle prepared for distribution.
Congratulations on getting funded! Now we're all set. Let the music begin! :)
Raised also. We can do this!!
Quadrupled my pledge.
Raised my pledge
Currently 24 hours to raise $700.
28 hours to raise over $800? I think it could happen.
oh, I hope it reaches its goal.
They just posted an update in their previous kickstarter...that's how I found about this new kickstarter. I think they'd be much closer to their goal if most of us knew that a new kickstarter was up. I couldn't pledge much though...other videogame kickstarters have drained my wallet...
Hi Kairu. Thank you for the advice and I will follow your suggestion to post blog updates this weekend.
Woah, I wouldn't have even realized this Kickstarter launched if I didn't periodically check out http://www.nubuwo.com/
Have you considered posting updates to your previous Kickstarter project pages to let the backers of those projects know there is a new one running? I'm sure some of them would be happy to back this project.
