The composer of Deus Ex, Unreal Tournament and Jazz Jackrabbit 2 has gone ahead and released a second album as a follow up to his Just Fun Kickstarter campaign in 2014. Composer Alexander Brandon has released Just Fun Custom for both kickstarter backers and for general listeners to enjoy a new crop of diverse game-inspired music.

“The second album is comprised of backer requested tracks! As the first was funded via Kickstarter the top backers each got to request a track. They also kindly allowed all the tracks to go out in a compilation, each song with its own story of what the backer wanted to hear.” – Alexander Brandon

If you check out the album on Bandcamp, each individual track has a blurb attached to it describing who requested each song and why, as well as additional details about the song’s composition. Many of the songs feature MOD files within their 8-bit compositions as well, throwing back to Brandon’s demoscene days.

Just Fun Custom was created with help from Materia Collective and features 9 tracks with a range of genres from jazz, ambient and synth-techno. I personally enjoyed “Cloudbreak” for its atmospheric ambiance. The album itself is currently available to non-backers of the Kickstarter for $5 on Bandcamp.
