I heard about this film when it popped up on my Twitter highlights. With familiar artists such as Bill Plympton, and those who have worked on Cuphead and Hazbin Hotel on board, I decided to pledge towards this project.
Paid: $20 USD + $8 USD tip Commission: A flat colour, full body redesign of the character Arph from my animated series Nyah Has an Adventure Date of payment: August 19, 2018
CanisAries / Wolframclaws / Blanisquid / lovecraftisafurry / @Depresstopus is an awesome artist from Finland. Mostly known for her artworks and fanfiction in the Twitch Plays Pokémon community, she started to test the waters of the world of accepting commissions in 2018, much to my and everyone else’s delight. The first commission I have asked of her is a redesign of one of the main characters to my Nyah franchise.
After the Australian Shepherd-like fur markings of the new Arph were sorted out, and the basic shape of the character was defined, payment was made after a rough sketch was produced of the finalised artwork, which is shown below.
Now all that’s left to do is figure out how to retroactively un-canonize Arph’s old design… Oh, well. Introducing the new and improved Arph!
Pledged: £22 Rewards:Signed first edition hardback, eBook, Name in the back of the book Unbound start date: July 25, 2018 Unbound funded on: N/A Estimated delivery date: N/A
The Region Locked book comes from the Did You Know Gaming team, and even includes excerpts from Ashens who made the campaign I posted about before this one. It also seems it will talk about Wonder Project J and Live a Live, my favourite Square-Enix SNES games.
Pledged: $150 Rewards: Signed Blu-Ray copy of the film, Name in the credits, Production updates, PDF of shooting script, Digital copy of the film, Ashen Coin, Set of 6 badges Indiegogo start date: July 08, 2018 Indiegogo funded on: August 08, 2018 Estimated delivery date: August 2019
Ashens is a guy who reviews relatively useless items on his couch. Apparently at some point, he made a film with some familiar faces such as Chris Bingham and Larry Bundy Jr. I didn’t even see it before deciding to back this sequel. I saw it later though. Of course, I had to aim for the name in the credits tier, which was pretty expensive.
Pledged: $82 Rewards: Digital download of game, Physical boxed copy (signed by David Murray, the 8-Bit Guy): soundtrack on cassette tape, floppy disk with the game, printed manual, copy of Planet X2 for the Commodore 64, copy of Planet X1 for the VIC-20 Kickstarter start date: June 04, 2018 Kickstarter funded on: July 05, 2018 Estimated delivery date: May 2019
The 8-Bit Guy, David Murray, has really interesting videos on old hardware and software. Last year he made a game called Planet X2 for the Commodore 64, and with this campaign, he’s amping it up with Planet X3 for MS-DOS.
The digital copy of the Planet X2 and X3 games were linked as a separate downloads upon the completion of X3.
The physical copy of the games arrived at my place on March 04, 2019 – exactly eight months after the Kickstarter start date. Fitting for The 8-Bit Guy! The Planet X3 box was signed with the words “Enjoy x333”, which I requested as a sort-of pun on the game’s name.
Inside the boxes were the soundtracks on cassette tape, the printed manuals, and Planet X1 and X2 on Commodore 64 diskette, with Planet X3 on a 720K floppy, and a label for the 360K floppy disk version, should I choose to produce my own copy.
I later found my name on page 15 of the Planet X3 User Manual. Very cool!
Pledged: £16 Rewards: Digital goodie bag (thank you video, artwork, music, etc.), Behind-the-scenes vlog/preview Vimeo channel access, Postcard (signed by Thomas ‘TomSka’ Ridgewell and Ben ‘Wonchop’ Smallman) Kickstarter start date: May 18, 2018 Kickstarter funded on: June 21, 2018 Estimated delivery date: September 2018
I didn’t have enough money for Tom’s earlier Eddsworld Legacy campaign, so I promised myself I’d back his next crowdfunding campaign, which turned out to be for a new season of his hilarious original animated series.
The signed postcard arrived safely at some point. A proper first episode of Season 2 has not been released yet, though there has since been a new short.
