So I've previously been hired to make 8-bit tracks for an upcoming iPhone game. They all came out very well and I'm proud of myself. I thought I could take it a step further and make an album of all the game tracks and a few others I made in my spare time. Given that 8-bit chiptunes are eaten alive, for the most part, by consumers, I saw this as a great opportunity. I asked them (the team who hired me) and they were completely okay with it. (Even though I sold the music under a license that will still give me rights to whatever I please with it, I wanted to ask to have a good relationship with my client and so I may use "as heard in <this game>" on the album)

So, I'm about done with the tracks, I have some album art I'm working on, and I found a site called TuneCore that I can sell the album off of.

My question is... what all do you think I should put on the album? This is the first ever big thing I've done in my lifetime and naturally, I'm unsure of some of the specs. My "music making" nickname is KanonBaum. Should I/can I stick that on the album or should I use my real name instead? Also, is there anything else I haven't thought about that will be mandatory for this sort of thing?

Any advice will be great here. :D Thanks!
