Story so far....
A very good evening to everyone.
I'm really over the moon with how the first day has gone with this project. Over £17k pledged so far and 70% funded within 5 hours of the launch. So a huge thank you to everyone who has pledged their hard earned money in support so far. I'm proud to have so many C64 SID fans out there.
Remember - don't forget to spread the word amongst all your friends on Facebook and Twitter, etc. There are some stretch goals in sight already !
I know some people are having some issues with not having Paypal available as an option. Just so everyone knows that is out of my hands, Kickstarter does not have it as an option. Someone did say there wasn't a debit card option,but there should be as I've used it on another project as a backer myself. Has anyone else had that problem?
The VIP level has sold out. Someone requested another higher pledge level for similar rewards but I'm not sure how that would go down with those of you who have already pledged at VIP level. As there are just 20 of those backers perhaps they could let me know if they would mind if a higher limited level with similar rewards was introduced? I would do this only once though.
And well done to Sam Dyer with his Amiga Compendium Book Project go over £100k. Amazing. Sam has been a diamond on the design front for my Kickstarter putting in some late nights creating some great graphics. A huge thanks to Sam.
Also thanks to Chris Abbott who is helping to manage activity and been a key player in getting this project to this stage.
I'll update again soon.
All the very best
