Yeah, I've backed all those except Lone Wolf too.

These things do always tend to get stuck in the middle then pick up at the end. I just hope they pick up to at least the £60,000 level.

There's another interview with Matt about this in Issue 5 of Reset magazine.

Chris thinks that some folks may not understand how Kickstarter works compared to Indiegogo, and won't pledge until the new month when they've been paid. Reasonable logic. Hopefully that's the case and it'll get to the £60k point by the end.

Yeah, I think so too. If that's not the case then it's pretty much stuck, I fear. But I'm sure it'll have a boost in the last few days.

Here's the sort of thing you might expect to hear if the stretch goals are hit: Matt Gray does Sanxion.

Sounds good! hope the 60k goal is reached, 12k missing with 8 days to go, it's doable.

Matt's now said that every backer of this will get a download of the completed Sanxion track, regardless of whether the campaign hits the requisite stretch goal or not. :D

We've hit the £60,000 mark (the KS page shows a bit less, but there is about £500 in PayPal payments to add to it) :D

So we get:
Two CD album with 18-20 tracks from Matt's most popular tunes.
A full Last Ninja II CD (if you go for this option), with some badges.
Another CD of six new SID tunes.
Another CD of 10 remakes.
A Sanxion remake download (a preview was released earlier in the week).

And he's just announced he'll do the ones that were for the £75,000 goal in increments, so it goes like this for any more it gets:

£61,500 - The replacement Rob Hubbard track, as Sanxion is now a given. This will be a mystery track chosen by myself at a later date.
£63,000 - Green Beret Loader by Martin Galway.
£64,500 - A Chris Huelsbeck classic chosen by myself and remade by me also.
£66,000 - Arcade Classics by Rob Hubbard.
£67,500 - Rambo First Blood Part 2 Loader by Martin Galway.
£69,000 - A Matt Gray track remade by Chris Huelsbeck.
£70,500 - Knucklebusters by Rob Hubbard
£72,000 - A Matt Gray track remade by Chris Huelsbeck, Audun Sorlie and Eirik Suhrke
£73,500 - Arkanoid by Martin Galway
£75,000 - All the above remakes on a physical CD for Level 2+ backers. Level 1 will be downloads only.

So for my £35 I get five CDs (I went for the additional Last Ninja II disc), Sanxion download, then any others we reach in the list above :D That sounds like a good deal to me.

I love the idea of breaking this down into incremental bonus add-ons. It means we're all getting more for our money regardless of whether the actual stretch goal is reached, and should be a greater incentive for people to pledge if they haven't already, or to increase what they've already pledged. We'll get a ton of great music from this one! :D

I've pledged the same amount and it's looking like a fantastic deal! Hope the 65k (Matt Gray/Reformation pen) stretch is reached too, and that he chooses Mega Apocalypse or Ricochet as extra Rob Hubbard remix :mrgreen:

I was thinking Crazy Comets might benefit more than Mega Apocalypse myself. Somebody mentioned Nemesis the Warlock, I think that could be amazing.

You've got a point, being CC less "samples" and more "music". Not that I'd dislike Monty or Commando, but I've already listened to tons of remakes of these. Oh well, I'm really looking forward to this :)

Yep, a Rob tune, Green Beret and a Chris tune.

Oh, and a pen :D

I think we are getting close to the Arcade classics goal, as I think the PayPal amount is close to £1,000 now.

Can anyone explain what the PayPal option is about? If you have ever had a job you'll have a current account, and AFAIK you always get a debit card (otherwise the account is useless as you can't do anything with it). To use PayPal you link your debit/Credit card to your PP account, so why is using PP any different to just paying through the Kickstarter page?

That didn't take long! Someone went for the £999 option to choose a track for him to remake (I'm hoping for The Wilderness or The Wastelands for The Last Ninja).

So we get Arcade classics now, and one of my favourite SID tunes is the next one on the list - the Rambo loader.
