Mega Ran has gotten back from a two week tour in Japan with some of the top Chiptune DJs around.  Part of this tour was to film for a documentor in Blu-ray.  So to help cover costs for the tour (which has already happened), studio costs, and disc manufacturing for CD, Blu-ray, and vinyl release.  So has looked to Kickstarter to help fund the project once again.

The Kickstarter is already funded, but you can still give for rewards.  This will be the third successfully funded Kickstarter project for Random.

Stretch goals up now are at $11,000 a full music/video collaboration between Mega Ran and Castlevania SOTN composer Nichiru Yamane.  At $12,000 a Hiversaires Rap Remix with Aliceffekt featurette and new secret EP release.

Backing the project can get you a Mega Ran album with remixed songs by chiptune artists, Blu-ray of concerts and interview footage, custom cover songs and freestyle shout outs, music albums exclusive to Japan, vinyl release, and more.   All backers who give $20 or more will also receive Ran’s Castlevania album instantly with instrumentals or any other album you are missing.  All backers will also receive exclusive music with Mega Ran and Mister Wilson called Blue Bomber, Mega Ran and Sega.

He also has a tour coming up with Danimal Cannon, chiptune legend.  They will be on the west coast doing shows together.  They will be joining up with some other great acts along the way as well.  Danimal has a new album out
