Space Quest IV: Roger Wilco And The Time Rippers

Space Quest Historian did a Qrates campaign for a remixed and reorchestrated version of the Space Quest IV soundtrack on vinyl.

The release will be a single LP on blue-in-black colored vinyl. It comes in a regular LP jacket with game art.

The Qrates campaign launched on January 12, 2020 and ended succesfully on March 2, 2020. The release is scheduled to begin shipping 2-3 months from the campaign’s end date.

Under The Half Dome

Ken Allen, former Sierra composer, started a Kickstarter for a new album called “Under The Half Dome”. The album features new music based on compositions he’s made for games between 1989 and 1996.

A full tracklist for the album was posted on Allen’s website shortly before the Kickstarter ended.

A vinyl version of the album was included for backers at the $125 tier. The Kickstarter launched on January 22, 2013 and was succesfully funded on February 21, 2013 with just over twice as much as the initial goal. Estimated delivery for the vinyl version was estimated in August 2013.

As of March 2016 there are no indication that the vinyl version (or even the album) was ever finished. Some backer-only updates on Kickstarter titled “Refunds” could be an indication that the project either was cancelled or simply an offer for backers to get a refund if they’re not interested in waiting any longer.
