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.

Result:

The film has not yet been released.

Result:

The developers have stated they are in the final stretch as of August 2018.
