It's time for an update as we approach our Stretch Goal of £3,500 for a physical paperback book.
The response has been great so far with many £10 backers increasing their pledges to £15 or more so that they will receive both a digital and a paperback book. We just need a push to cross that £3,500 barrier.
Please share the Kickstarter campaign with your family, friends, fellow gamers, social circles and social media followers. Your influence may be the difference between failure and success in reaching the Stretch Goal.
If you haven't yet increased your £10 pledge to £15 or more and would like a paperback book to show for it, please do so ASAP and help to make it a reality for those who have already done so.
If your significant other is a fan of video games, trust me, they will get a lot from reading this book. Why not treat them? Sharing is caring.
In the meantime, as we near our goal, if you are looking for some retro themed reading material, check out Retro Format Magazine.
They ran an extremely successful Kickstarter campaign for their magazine, with over 400 backers pledging over £20,000 and they currently have another successful campaign running for their Retro Annual 2020, following on from the successes of their 2018 and 2019 Annuals and have a total of 12 successful campaigns under their belts.
