Help Fund the Next Video Games Live Album!
Going through Kickstarter can be a risky business. We have seen games get the funding they need through this start up, and we have seen games fail to get the funding they need as well. Video Games Live, the decade running concert series, is giving a crack at Kickstarter to fund their third full length album. Video Games Live: Level 3 will be comprised of 15 to 18 tracks and including a whole list of titles that VGL has never done before. To note, this album, if funded, will be recorded in studio rather than live. They mentioned Shadow of the Colossus, I really hope they do a rendition of The Opened Way (a track which I am listening to right now on repeat). If you donate at least $5, you will receive a special 15 track compilation that will not be sold in stores or online. The album has a $250,000 goal and so far they have reached $128,000 with 15 days to go in the campaign. I am donating to this campaign. I have spent that past year or so on this site trying to highlight the incredible music this industry has produced since its inception. I have maintained support for Video Games Live and outlets like OverClocked Remix, showing how much musical creativity there is in the industry and the community. Help show your support with a simple donation, the donations start at just a $1. Information on the Kickstarter campaign can be found here and you can find out if Video Games Live is making a tour stop near you right here.
