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 in July 2018. A proper first episode of Season 2 has not been released yet, though there has since been a new short.
Pledged: £34 Rewards: eBook download, Physical paperback copy of book (signed by Cyriak Harris), Name in the back of the book Unbound start date: May 18, 2018 Unbound funded on: N/A Estimated delivery date: N/A
Cyriak is a surrealist animator, who suddenly announced they wrote a book, so I backed it.
The eBook has been sent to backers and my name is credited on page 371.
The physical signed copy of the book was received between May-June 2019.
Pledged: $20 Rewards: Access to behind-the-scenes development forum, Digital copy of the game, Name in the credits Kickstarter start date: September 05, 2017 Kickstarter funded on: October 06, 2017 Estimated delivery date: December 2018
I thought Cyanide and Happiness is a funny webcomic and animated series, so backing their game should be equally funny.
Paid: $28 USD Commission: An image of Meloetta from Pokémon Date of payment: March 26, 2017
lenasdf is a friend I made in the Know Your Meme community. I commissioned them to make art of the Pokémon known as Meloetta. After a few instances where the eyes didn’t look quite right, I drew a basic idea of what I wanted them to look like and they soon delivered.
Payment was made after the following piece of art was finalised.
Pledged: $30 Rewards: Digital download of game, Digital download of soundtrack, PDF download of development book (art, design, secrets), Beta versions during development, Name in the credits Kickstarter start date: July 22, 2016 Kickstarter funded on: August 22, 2016 Estimated delivery date: February 2018
I simply backed this game because someone said it was going to be the next Undertale, and soon, even SiIvaGunner released a high quality rip of one of the songs in the soundtrack, cementing my decision to remain a backer.
The developers have stated they are in the final stretch as of August 2018.
