Nice! Touching with a little bit of funny thrown in. Rabbit stew you... I think I've been in the pot a couple times in my life.

Truly great! Not surprising though, as there does seem to be a lot of talent running through Ryan and family. What a wonderful gift for the Kickstarters!

Thank-you so much.

Every time I see "Near and Far" that damned Titanic song gets in my head.

Near, far, wherever you are

I was already a Ryan Laukat fan boy but this just set it over the top. Amazing games and now amazing songs (even if it is a parody)! Super stoked to get Near and Far into my collection. All I need now is Empires of the Void to complete my Collection!!!

I hope they have a good lawyer or are praying to the Spaghetti Monster that Leonard Cohen doesn't hear this.
I think offering it as a premium/incentive to drive sales puts it squarely in the realm of copyright infringey times.

Depends where Parody ends and commercial exploitation begins. Hence the lawyers...

Cover versions and parodies were around 18 years ago, and it was 22 years ago when fair use was applied to a parody version released commercially

Give Weird Al a ring: He had to get permission and secure rights to do parodies. And, don't forget, this was created to promote a product and drive sales. That was my point. You're way off topic.

Me too!

I'd buy an album of similar material - love Ryan's voice so much
