Composer Alexander Brandon has is best known for his work on games like the first two Deus Ex games, Unreal, and the Jazz Jackrabbit games. For the last two years, he has been working on a collaboration album titled Just Fun, and it features songs with collaborators such as Jake "virt" Kaufman (Double Dragon Neon, Shovel Knight), Grant "Stemage" Henry (Metroid Metal), Jimmy "Big Giant Circles" Hinson (Mass Effect 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2), Andrew Aversa (Soul Calibur V) and Danny Baranowsky (Super Meat Boy!).
Brandon has launched a Kickstarter campaign to gather funds to hire sound engineers to make Just Fun sound as good as possible, as well as produce a physical release of the album. It reached its goal in only 24 hours! But stretch goals are in place, including an additional remix album.
