Sam Dillard have just launched a Kickstarter campaign for a physical release of a “recharged” version of his Metroid Cinematica arrangement album. The vinyl reward tiers will be handled by Mango Mage Records.
The release will be a 45RPM 4LP set available in three variants: A standard variant on blue translucent marbled colored vinyl, a Kickstarter exclusive variant on red, green, gold and blue colored vinyl (500 copies), and a Wax Mage variant in a custom hand-made color pattern (20 copies). The standard variant will ship in a quadfold jacket, while the Kickstarter and Wax Mage variants will be in a quadfold jacket within a wooden box set.
The campaign runs from now and until November 22, 2021 with a goal of $10,000 (and as of this post this has already been met). Vinyl rewards are scheduled to begin shipping out in December, 2022. The standard variant is $80, the Kickstarter variant is $130 and the Wax Mage is $300 (sold out as of this post). The campaign can be backed on Kickstarter here.
Musician Retro Game Remix is doing a new Earthbound arrangement album, which can now be backed on Kickstarter and it does include a vinyl release in one of its reward tiers.

The campaign runs from August 10, 2021 and ends on September 9, 2021 with a goal of $5,000 AUD. If the campaign is successful the vinyl release is scheduled to begin shipping out around February, 2022. It is priced at $40 AUD and it can be backed via Kickstarter here.

Confirmed tracks for this album so far are from the C64 games Times Of Lore, The Last Ninja, Yie Ar Kung Fu 2, Delta, Skate Or Die, Shockway Rider, Retrograde and Ocean Loader 5. Music from the Amiga games Turrican 2 and Test Drive 2 have also been confirmed.

The vinyl tier is £50 (with some higher tiers also including the vinyl release) and is scheduled to release in March, 2022.
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.
Today composer Chris Hülsbeck launched a Kickstarter campaign for a live orchestra version of his soundtrack to the 1991 Commodore Amiga game Turrican II: The Final Fight.
The album will be produced by Merrognon Studios (who have previously worked on the Final Symphony concerts and Hülsbeck’s Turrican Soundtrack Anthology). It will be released in individually numbered box sets that include the album on both CD and on a 2LP. Additionally, the box set will feature brand new manga-style artwork. The box set will be limited to 1000 copies.
The set will be available for backers who pledge $50 at the early bird tier or more. Higher tiers include art prints, signed score sheet, and more.
If the project is succesfully funded the box set is set to release in April 2017, with the digital version becoming available December 2016.
