There's still some left!

Thanks!  Here's to hoping we knock it out of the park! :)

The first one is actually a fan page.  I know the admin there!  That's been a huge help though!

The Chrono Trigger group is great!  I hadn't heard of that one!

Wohoo!!! So glad to see this bad boy up and running. We'll need to post a news update here at the Compendium as well. I'll do that later today.

That would be a huge help!  It looks like pledges have started slowing down, so anything we can do to keep things moving, the better!

I'm really sad that it looks like this won't reach its goal. Do you have any backup plans in case that does happen? Perhaps a Time Egg up your sleeve to change FATE?

"Never give up!  Never surrender!"   :lol:

Yeah, it's a bit of a bummer, but I guess I'm not overly surprised.  I'm an unknown composer coming out of nowhere trying to fund a high profile project.  I had hoped that it would catch on and we could do it, but it doesn't seem like that was in the cards.  That being said, 20K and 450 backers is nothing to scoff at!

I'm working on Plan B right now.  It looks like most people want me to relaunch the campaign, so I'm thinking about relaunching with a lower funding goal of around $10k - $15k to have the MIDI mastered.  We'll then set some stretch goals for live recordings with different sized orchestras and go from there!

I still think this can happen, but even if we don't meet the stretch goals we'll at least have some good mock-ups we can release.  In the meantime I'm going to start writing for my next tribute project. :)

I'm not sure as to the location that this was to be set, but what about setting it in a nice sized stage and include tickets in the sale? "Pre-sale tickets" if you would.

The Kickstarter was never for a live performance, only for a live recording for an album.  I want to do a concert in the future, but there's quite a bit of red tape a legal issues I have to wade through before I can do that. How soon/if that happens totally depends on reception.

In case some of you don't know, I'm going to launch a much smaller Kickstarter at the end of April to fund the MIDI mock up tracks.  We'll do some stretch goals for live solo performers, and then move into a small orchestra and up.

I think this way we're guaranteed to end up with at least SOMETHING to release later this year.

It does indeed!  I've even started the pre-writing stage for my next project: Chrono Trigger!  Though it will be a little while before I start the actual writing.
