When Chris Huelsbeck announces a new campaign on Kickstarter, retro fans tend to sit up and take notice. Chris has launched a new campaign just today to produce a new album, Turrican II – The Orchestral Album, to commemorate 30 years since he began his professional career as a video game composer and also the 25th anniversary of Turrican II, a game he composed the music for, arguably some of his best work.
There are some great rewards on offer as there normally is with these great retro Kickstarter campaigns. Instead of me telling you about each and every one of them, why don’t you head over to the campaign itself and pick one out for yourself – follow this LINK.
Here are some images from the campaign itself:
From the man himself, Chris tells us on the campaign page that “Turrican II – The Orchestral Album will feature nearly an hour of completely new, never before heard, orchestral arrangements of some of the most popular pieces of music from Turrican II. Tracks planned for the album include The Final Fight, Freedom, The Great Bath, Concerto for Lasers and Enemies and The Desert Rocks. We will be revealing more tracks as the project progresses. Depending on the campaign’s success, all backers will get to hear Turrican II’s orchestral beauty from December this year.”
