It sounds quite cool (had to research the first one), but the presentation of the Kickstarter is terrible. Not a good variety of reward tiers, no video, no in-game artwork, talking about process, press links, etc.

The Kickstarter is just some fanny that's chucked it up there with no rights to the game or indeed any slight idea how to go about developing a game. Hence the hilarity.

Oh dear lord :blown:

I mean, it's flattering someone would do that, but also, make your own damn game :facepalm:

Is that some sort of spoof? :shrug:

I find 'mericans a bit hard to read at times.

Canadians and at the very least they are presenting it as not being a spoof, and they did indeed have a kickstarter that took $600k.

Oh! (Sorry, Canadafolks!)

It seemed like very bad acting rather than people talking naturally, so I wasn't sure.

That sucks, then. :(

Quote:
Founded in 1983 by Martin Alper, Frank Herman and Alan Sharam, Mastertronic went on to become one of the UK's biggest home video game publishers of the 1980s. The company's marketing strategy of putting games on shelves at the low price of just £1.99, when most other games sold from £4.99, resulted in booming sales and massive profits for the London based company.

This Kickstarter aims to produce both a standard volume and an enhanced collector's volume detailing the history of these games.

I saw a tape measure on facebook shared from kickstarter that looked ace. It could measure by infra-red, by rolling around a curved surface, or by pulling out a bit of string, and it even synched with an app to record your measurements.

It was about $50 but there is literally no way to buy that product now as all the backer goals are met. Make more product, people!

This the one?

Looks rather neato. And available to buy. Though $72 + shipping feels punchy for a tape measure, no matter how smart it is.

That's the one, but yes, was cheaper on Kickstarter for earlier backers.

I followed him for a while but then when Frankie Boyle's 'Tramadol Nights' was getting bad reviews, he seemed to get massively enraged and spent all his time just shouting at people who didn't think it was a work of genius.

I should probably follow him again now that's blown over, as he's quite funny.

10% of what they are getting on Patreon is going to an indie developer each month

There's a posh book and that being kickstarted in this year's attempt to get something going again.
