Chris Hülsbeck announces new orchestral Turrican Kickstarter project with vinyl options

Chris Hülsbeck – the composer of the Turrican series and several other retro titles – have announced and launched a new Kickstarter project called “Turrican Orchestral Selections”.

The project features arranged versions of a selection of music from the Turrican series, that didn’t make it onto his previous release, “Turrican II – The Orchestral Album”.

The vinyl version will be a double LP on black vinyl and will come with the album on CD, a booklet, and downloads for both the orchestra album and a brand new album described as a “Virtual Turrican 4 soundtrack” recorded on Amiga hardware.

There’s also a box set version limited to 1000 numbered copies. In addition to what’s included in the standard vinyl tier, the box set comes with physical art prints and downloadable musical scores.

In addition to the regular tiers, an additional CD and vinyl record of the virtual Turrican 4 album may be added to the pledge if the project hits its stretch goals.

The Kickstarter is aiming for a $85,000 goal and if succesful, physical rewards are scheduled to begin shipping in April 2018.

The 2LP is priced at $65 ($55 for early bird) and the box set is priced at $95 ($80 for early bird). You can pledge for either (or one of the higher vinyl tiers) via Kickstarter now.
