WATCH THE PILOT ABOVE! ---^

     Four players are given one hundred dollars cash, all they have to do to keep their money is play three video games and not come in last. If they come in last the have to give back all their money. However, before each game we are going to have an auction. The auction lets you buy advantages or disadvantages for other players, but they must bid with their own prize money and will leave only with what they have left. Who has the skills and the cunning to be the champion? Find out on Game the Gamer!

     Now you might be wondering why we need 6,725 dollars, am I just going to use this money to buy video games? The answer is no, not really. Here is the break down:

    5% of what we raise goes to kickstarter. So that is 336 gone dollars there.  

       We want to do is ten episodes of the show. That will cost us roughly five grand. This gives us five hundred dollars an episode. That budget gives us one hundred dollars for games each episode. Of course I already have a collection of games and gaming systems and will be picking from that library a lot, but there are some popular games that I just do not have and will have to buy. 100 Dollars for the prize. Yes we are raising the prize to 100 dollars. Granted very few will walk out with all the money, be we do have to be prepared. 100 dolars for sabotages. You will notice in the pilot has some crude props. The mask for example is covered in blue painters tape on it. We want things like that to look nicer in the future. Plus many of the awful controllers we want to use rare finds so that will get expensive quickly. 100 dollars goes to feeding our contestants. Filming takes all day and starving them is not a sabotage. Last there is 100 dollars of petty cash. This is for things like batteries for the microphones and controllers, when other areas go over budget and any other unseen issues.  

     That leaves us with 1,389 dollars. Thousand of which goes to paying for the studio. Which is an awesome deal, we are very thankful for.

      The final 389 goes to production and shipping of rewards and the renting of a PO Box. We have had a lot of people offer to send us their awful, broken controllers. We want nothing more than to have a way for you to get them to us. So we will soon have a PO Box where you can send us your trash that we see as treasure.

Stretch Goals. The following people will appear on the show if we reach their stretch goal.

Party of One Podcast's Jeff Stormer: $6,750

Legends of the Interwebs: $6,800

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge we are going to be facing beyond raising the money is time. Creating an episode of Gamer takes A LOT of testing. To prepare for this webshow we have been play Game the Gamer at various conventions such as Wizard World Philly, Dexcon, Too Many Games and others. In this time we have learned a lot about how this game works. There are many fickle things about these weird controllers. Some of them don't work in the player two slot. Some of them make other controllers top working. It is a mess.

As a result every episode has to be tested many times, to make sure we do not create a game breaking situation. We also want to make sure that while the sabotages make the games harder, we don't want them to make it impossible.

The issue being we can't create the episode until everything is tested, and we can't test the hardware until we buy it, and we can't buy it until we have the money. So we ask you to understand tha tit may take a while for the season to roll out.
