So glad to see that this lives on!

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.

This I'm a bit more excited for.

Haha  I'm not surprised.  It seems that most people favor Trigger over Cross - even in terms of soundtrack...which I find strange personally, but that doesn't change the fact that Trigger is incredible.

I think when it comes to the soundtrack it might not even come down to how great either one is, but if you've invested significantly more time into one game (as I have with Trigger), you have literally spent that much more time growing with that music. Because of how much more frequently I've heard the music from Trigger, it means so much more to me regardless of a side-by-side comparison.

I totally get that. The music becomes associated with the time spent playing the games, so there's a lot of nostalgia attached.  A good chunk of fans prefer Trigger and have invested HUGE amounts of time into it, so it really shouldn't be a surprise that it's soundtrack is probably more revered - even if Cross's soundtrack is generally considered to be better.

Oh man, that new art Rowye and you put out for this is amazing. I can't wait to see it on a physical CD.

I tend to think so. :D

The bad news is the Schala Edition is no more...couldn't justify the cost of it...the good news is that some of the premium design elements have made their way into the standard edition. I think all in all this will be one of the sexiest physical editions I've ever seen. ;)

It's that time again, the Kickstarter launches on Tuesday at 2PM MST!

I would love to get some feedback on the new campaign.  Most importantly, I want to know if the add-on stuff makes sense!

Please note that there isn't a video yet.  I'll be uploading that in the 9th hour. :D

Anyway, let me know your thoughts!

The add-on stuff makes perfect sense. While I was reading I was actually wondering how to get just one poster, and you answered that wonderfully, step-by-step.

That's good to hear!  Does the shipping bit make sense as well? And how is the overall flow, does everything seem to be in the right place?

Will the physical posters be shipped folded or rolled?

Awesome. Harle-level pledge it is, then! I'll probably spring for the digital posters, too, because damn that artwork is amazing.
