OverClocked ReMix recently released Final Fantasy: Random Encounter to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the franchise, but the party doesn't stop there! The team is prepping a massive four-disc Final Fantasy VI tribute album to be released later this year, and they need your help to make the launch extra special.
Scratch that: They needed your help. Not so much anymore!
All of OCR's albums are distributed for free digitally, but for promotional purposes, a limited number of physical copies are sometimes printed and given away as contest prizes, at panels, and so on. Typically, the money to press these discs is raised via fundraising efforts. For Final Fantasy VI: Balance and Ruin, OCR decided to turn to Kickstarter in order to raise $15k. In less than a day since opening donations, the goal was met. Any extra money will go towards site maintenance and studio recordings. Of course, for pledging some dough, you'll score copies of Balance and Ruin plus other physical albums from OCR's back catalog, of course!
Balance and Ruin is shaping up to be monumental, with musical contributions by 30+ artists including Danny Baranowsky; Jake "virt" Kaufman; Jimmy "Big Giant Circles" Hinson; OCR legends zircon, djpretzel, and McVaffe; and many more. So even if you don't chip in any money whatsoever, you'll still be getting one f*ck-amazing album!
