It's a concert and album series that presents music from popular video games both classic and modern, and thanks to fans who donated money online, Video Games Live will be producing a third album.
Originally produced by video game composers Jack Wall and Tommy Tallarico, Video Games Live held its first concert in the US in 2005. It branched out into a world tour the next year and grew in size the years after that.
The shows included a variety of music from game franchises such as Kingdom Hearts, Halo, Civilization, The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario Brothers and many others.
Outside of the live concerts, two albums featuring recordings from those concerts were released.
On the crowd-sourcing fundraising site Kickstarter, the composers for the “Level 3” set and passed their goal. Over 5600 donators raised over $285 thousand dollars for the project.
This album will feature a studio recording of a full orchestra and choir. The producers of the album have already confirmed that tracks from games such as Skyrim, Tetris, and Street Fighter will be on the album, and possibly others as well.
This album is set to be released in 2014.
