New Kickstarter: Turrican II Live Orchestra Album.

 

Turrican II Live Orchestra Album by Chris Huelsbeck

Here is Chris Huelsbeck's latest Kickstarter, here is is what Chris has to say about the campaign.

"2016 is a very special year for me. Not only is it 30 years since I began my professional career as a video game composer, but it also marks the 25th anniversary of legendary platform game Turrican II. As one of my most popular soundtracks ever, I wanted to create something very special to celebrate these anniversaries, and so Turrican II – The Orchestral Album was conceived!

New Kickstarter: The Mastertronic Archives.

The Mastertronic Archives

Mastertronic is the company that most people associate with the Spectrum 48k and C64.. The memories are still fresh in my mind from the days I used to pop to the local newsagent and buy a £1.99 game. This book will no doubt rekindle lots of fond memories for many retro fans..

Founded in 1983 by Martin Alper, Frank Herman and Alan Sharam, Mastertronic went on to become one of the UK's biggest home video game publishers of the 1980s. The company's marketing strategy of putting games on shelves at the low price of just £1.99, when most other games sold from £4.99, resulted in booming sales and massive profits for the London based company.

Allister Brimble : A Retrospective by Paul Bridger.

Allister Brimble : A Retrospective by Paul Bridger.

I remember that day when I first loaded up Rock star ate my hamster and thought the way you could setup your band was amazing, back then it was such a novelty idea. Never thought the fact the music meant anything to me later in life, but it’s amazing I still play the game today. Fast forward when the likes of Full Contact arrived by what looked like a refreshing games company and then the music hit me, absolutely gobsmacked and thought game music was just awesome. I began recording my favourite tunes off games onto tape and listen to them in bed, weird as it sounds but then again maybe not as other Amiga retro fans did the same back in my day.
