Project Update #3: Tom Kalinske, Al Nilsen join Mega Visions team
Good afternoon, backers! We promised you a big surprise today, and here it is:
Former SEGA of America President Tom Kalinske and SEGA of America Marketing Director Al Nilsen have officially joined the Mega Visions staff!
Tom and Al will take you on a journey throughout their time at SEGA and tell you stories you've never heard anywhere else before. This will be the first time both of these two iconic figures in SEGA's history will tell their stories directly to the fans.
To give you an idea of the kind of stories you'll read (and hear) in each issue, take a listen to a test recording we conducted recently. In this story, Tom and Al discuss their time at the Computer Entertainment Show and how they would hire celebrities to sign autographs at their booth to attract more people to see the SEGA Genesis and games they had to show.
Listen to their chat here! (Note: The audio has a bad echo that we hope won't detract too much from the awesome story Tom and Al tell. We'll be sure to get it fixed in the final version)
Check out our Too Many Games booth!
We're here to kick off this year's Too Many Games show outside of Philadelphia, so if you're planning on making it, we hope you'll stop by our booth!
We have a very early version of our zero issue that we're allowing attendees to take for a spin, and the early feedback has been incredibly positive so far.
We also have our Retro Freak at our table and will be hosting contests throughout the weekend. (Anyone up for a game of Eternal Champions?!)
Thank you again for all the support you've all given us so far into this campaign! We're right around 33% funded, and if we keep this up, we'll surely be able to bring a magazine back to the SEGA community!
Until next time!
