Won't You Take Me To... Funkotron
It seems there is unanimous agreement on how best to spend our extra coinage, and that's to soup up the book itself! Of all the ideas suggested, I thought that improved cover finishes, gatefold pages and most of all... more pages were the most effective way to invest our excess cash. I'm speaking to a selection of reputable printers to see how we can make best use of the money, so please do bear with me while I assess where I can get the biggest bang for our collective buck. Once I've weighed up the options and spent a good few hours agonising over paper choices I'll be right back with you for the full, mouth-watering lowdown on your upgraded SEGA book.
Meanwhile, I'm pleased to announce that we've introduced a couple of fantastic new interviewees into the fold: Rich Karpp (Developer of Vectorman and Vectorman 2) and Michael Latham (Producer of Eternal Champions) will be chatting with us about their Genesis experiences. In the last update I mentioned that Greg Johnson (co-creator of ToeJam & Earl) was on board and I'm excited to say he has sent us a big ol' .zip file full of early development artwork. I hope you will all find the below image just as exciting as I did...
Finally, I have a request! We've been trying – with partial success – to get in touch with Ed Annunziata (creator of Ecco the Dolphin). I consider him an essential part of the book and we'd love to add him to our interview directory. I know there are plenty of ex-SEGA-alumni amongst our backers and I'd love if somebody could assist us in getting in touch with him directly. Please message me if you think you might be able to help!
So, it's back to editing interviews and going over our new print quotes for me. If you'd like to get in touch, I'm always available at firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can follow Read-Only Memory on Twitter at @romalerts.
