Aside from Monzo and your investor card
I’ve been playing Toejam & Earl : Back In The Groove! on PS4 for the last few days. This is a sequel to one of my favorite video games, the original came out in the early 90s on the Sega Mega Drive and probably contributed to my love of funk music
They began crowdfunding for this long-awaited sequel a few years back and it finally came out. A couple of years ago, I received a poster, keychain and mug in the mail, but until the game finally came out last week, I’d completely forgotten that all backers got their name in the game credits! Scrolling through the credits and seeing myself in there was pretty awesome.
So I was wondering which other projects you’ve thrown your hard earned cash at and what did you get in reward?
I’ve pledged for an art book about Prince, a book on the collected works and history of the Sega Dreamcast (one of my favorite ever consoles - this book isn’t out yet but looks incredible), some weird pocket tripod for your phone which took ages to ship and I never actually used… it seemed cool at the time I guess, wasn’t a huge pledge
But the biggest pledge I made is for Shenmue 3, the sequel to literally my favorite video game series ever, which is finally coming out later this year. I believe my pledge level will come with an illustrated art book, a t-shirt, plus some in-game backer-only perks, and my name in the credits again.
