The lights are on
Video Games Live's Kickstarter campaign has ended today, raising more than $35,000 over its funding goal. The money will go toward recording a studio album of gaming music.
"Thank-you all from the top & bottom of my heart!" wrote VGL founder Tommy Tallarico in the most recent Kickstarter update. "You have made the dreams of many come true! And the only way I can thank-you enough is by working as hard as I did over the past month to ensure this album and project are as mind-blowing as possible! My goal (and reward to everyone involved) is to get this album at the top of the Billboard Charts! We all deserve bragging rights...and I will work my hardest to deliver!"
The campaign ended at $285,081, with an initial goal of $250,000. If you missed out, it's not too late to back the project. Tallarico is offering digital-only tiers on the VGL site.

Our TakeThis one came down to the wire, but in the end Tallarico was able to persuade enough backers. Congrats to all involved.

Good, they deserve the funding.
im glad i helped out because in the end they finally made it and im happy i got to b a part of the funding! i luv VGL
Great indeed. Always have loved the project.
Awesome. I saw them years ago and it was awesome (although, looking back, I was too young to enjoy it as much as I would nowadays).
Awesome idea. Hope it does swell.
Awesome news! I got to perform in one of their concerts; it was such a crazy fun experience.
Phew, for a second there I thought they wouldn't make it, and that would have been terrible! I would have liked to see them reach $750,000 so we could see a BluRay/DVD release, but I'm just glad we are getting it at all.
