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.

The Pink Album

Album done by Kirby’s Dream Band featuring rock covers of music from mainly Kirby’s Dream Land, but also Street Fighter II, Sonic The Hedgehog 2, Chrono Trigger, Cave Story, Final Fantasy IV, and Pokémon Red & Blue.

It was self-released after a succesful Kickstarter-campaign in 2013. Limited to 300 copies on pink vinyl.

Brass 2: Mouth

This album features rock covers of video game music by Minibosses from games such as Excite Bik, The Legend Of Zelda, Ghosts N’ Goblins, Kid Icarus, Super Mario Bros. 3, and more. It was self-released by the band in 2011.

It is limited to 437 hand-numbered copies and was released by the band itself.

Tel Me More: Game Music Remakes

Ongoing Indiegogo campaing where backs can opt for a vinyl option. The album will feature remakes of Commodore 64 music. There’s not tracklist for the vinyl version, but the CD and digital versions will feature remakes of music from RoboCop 3, Cybernoid II: The Revenge, Rubicon, Hawkeye, Myth, Turbo Outrun, Supremacy, Stormlord, Battle Valley, Cybernoid, Eliminator, and Iron Lord. The campaign ends on August 10, 2015. There’s no release date estimate as of now.

It’s been speculated that this release might not happen since the campaign failed to meet its full goal.

Last Ninja 2

A succesful Kickstarter for Matt Gray’s “Reformation” CD box set included a backer option for a picture disc LP of the remade soundtrack to Last Ninja 2. Release date for Kickstarter backers is set to September, 2015, while orders through C64 Audio is set for December, 2015.

UPDATE: As of January 2016 I have yet to see any proof that this has been manufactured or shipped.

UPDATE 2: In late March 2016 backers received a message asking if they’d like for the album to be a 2LP instead which was positively received and since confirmed to be how it’ll be released. There was also a mention that manufacturing will begin soon, although no specific ETA have been mentioned.

UPDATE 3: In late 2018 Matt Gray finished a Reformation 3 campaign that was intended to collect funds for the finishing of physical goods for Reformation/LN2 and Reformation 2.

As of late 2018 there are still regular updates from Matt Gray on Kickstarter, but no release estimate.
