Thanks in great part to Kickstarter making me Project of the Day (Hooray!), I met my funding goal yesterday with 20 more days to go. Thank you everyone for all your support. I really look forward to making this set and also getting folks their respective rewards.
Speaking of rewards, I did promise last week that when I was fully funded, I would announce who the Secret Bonus Geeks will be. I can say that there are two bonus cards that everyone in the $45 and above range will receive with their card packs. So, without further ado...
BONUS GEEK #1: Nolan North
If you've ever played a video game in the past 10 years or so, chances are you've heard the voice of Nolan North. That's because he's done the voice of hundreds of video game characters including Deadpool, The Penguin from Arkham City and most notably, as the lead character Nathan Drake from the smash PS3 hit, Uncharted. He's the closest thing to a leading man in video games and I'm so excited and pleased to have him as part of the Legends of Videogames set.
BONUS GEEK #2: Ron Gilbert
I am so honored to add this true legend to the Geek A Week set. Ron is best known for his contributions to point and click adventure gaming with titles like Maniac Mansion and Monkey Island. And he pretty much wrote the book on storytelling for video games. (C',mon, he coined the term "cutscene" for Pete's sake! He deserves his own card!)
ON EDIT: I've added a new backer tier - BONUS ROUND #2 and BONUS ROUND #2 SIGNED. At the $35 and $40 level you will receive BOTH bonus cards. Everyone at the $45 and above will automatically receive BOTH BONUS CARDS.I apologize for the confusion.
So there you have it! I am currently working on some other limited rewards to add over the coming days, so please keep your eye on the Kickstarter and keep spreading the word!
