Space Quest V - Reorchestrated on deluxe double vinyl!

We've done Space Quest III, we've done Space Quest IV ... now comes the real test. Can we do Space Quest V on a deluxe, double, heavy-weight, splat-colored vinyl with gorgeous upscaled artwork from the original game? I sure hope so, otherwise I'm going to look real silly over here.

Space Quest V was released in 1993 and featured a rousing orchestral soundtrack by Dynamix composers Christopher Stevens and Tim Clarke. I took the original MIDI files from the game (ripped by Mark Van Tinteren) and reorchestrated them using modern orchestral patches. Nothing has been re-recorded.

But that's not all. Inside the resource files of SQ5 were also a small handful of unused pieces of music that were not triggered in the game. These have also been reorchestrated and put on Side D as "outtakes."

Why a double vinyl? Well, because Space Quest V is a long ass game! And the soundtrack is quite long as well. I tried fitting it on a single vinyl but it just couldn't be done.

The artwork is original art from the game put through an AI upscaler by Brandon Blume, who also did the same for the SQ4 vinyl.

The audio on the vinyl itself has been lovingly mastered especially for vinyl. The examples below are CD/digital masters.

THIS IS A NON-PROFIT FAN PROJECT. The cost of the vinyl is set as low as it can go without going into negative profits. If there are any residual profits from the project, they will once again be donated to the American Cancer Society because f*** cancer. https://www.cancer.org/involved/donate.html
