It was a close call, but with only 38 hours left of its campaign, Tommy Tallarico’s Video Games Live: Level 3 has shot past its $250,000 goal.
Tallarico took to the VGL Twitch channel to watch the page hit its goal, extending his thanks to all the backers and answering their questions live. The Earthworm Jim composer had previously revealed that a live acoustic version of “Still Alive” from Portal would be making its way onto the album alongside a DoTA 2 arrangement courtesy of Valve composer Tim Larkin.
To get game music fans psyched for the project, Tallarico has released two orchestral arrangements: an early build of a Street Fighter II medley and an absolutely beautiful rendition of Super Mario World’s various pieces.
At the time of this writing, the project has 5,030 backers with $255,229 in pledges. The project’s deadline hits on Friday, Sept. 13 at 9:20am EDT.
