Game music remixing community OC ReMix have relaunched their FFVI Kickstarter campaign, aiming to raise $30,000. While OC ReMix's upcoming FFVI tribute album, scheduled to encompass 5 CDs, will be distributed for free download via their website, the Kickstarter campaign will finance a limited run of licensed physical copies of the album. The project boasts an impressive line up of remixers, including Jake "virt" Kaufman, Danny Baranowsky, Andrew and Jillian Aversa, Jimmy Hinson, Joshua Morse and Shnabubula. According to project manager Andrew Aversa, the project's goal is to "arrange the bulk of the FFVI soundtrack in a varied (but cohesive) range of musical styles". A Kickstarter campaign for the album was launched earlier this year, but was suspended due to licensing issues with Square Enix, which have since been resolved.
Edmund McMillen, creator of Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac, has released The Basement Collection, a compilation of nine of his award-winning indie games, via Steam. Amongst several other extras, the release comes with a full collection soundtrack, featuring over 30 full length tracks from games included in the collection, as well as fan made bonus tracks. Featured composers include Danny Baranowsky (Grey Matter), Justin Karpel (Time Fcuk) and Tyler Glaiel (Aether).
