All we've heard for two years is that we need to bring SGC back. Now we can but only with your help!

The goal is simple: Throw the biggest and best party in the history of gaming

In 2009 and 2010, ScrewAttack put on two of the best parties in gaming history - SGC.  We don't think of SGC as a "convention" but moreso as a 72 hour gamer slumber party.  Having a small independent crew at ScrewAttack, SGC actually outgrew the size of what we could handle and unfortunately SGC couldn't return in 2011 and 2012.  That sucks. So after two years of EVERYONE asking when it was going to return we figure it's about time!  Even though we were unable to independently continue SGC, the community and public outcry was so great we knew we had to find a way to make SGC happen... hence this Kickstarter!  We want to bring SGC back in a bad way and judging by the response we've heard from pretty much everyone we talked to, they want SGC to return as well.  We now can but only with your help.

We've had some very memorable guests and events in SGC's history included Nolan Bushnell (The Founder of Atari), Jack Thompson (Activist), Uwe Boll (Movie Producer) as well as tons of internet celebs like James Rolfe (The Angry Video Game Nerd), Brent Black (brentalfloss), Nathan Barnatt (aka Keith Apicary), Noah Antwiler (The Spoony One) and many, many more.  We obviously plan to only expand on those guests and make SGC 3 a place for gamers to go and meet the celebrities they'd like to meet!

We think Kickstarter is a great tool and want to be as transparent as possible throughout the whole process. You'll notice in our stretchgoals that we don't just want to put on SGC, we want it to be as affordable as possible - preferably even FREE!  Yeah, that's a pretty crazy thought, right?  We've also built in stretchgoals that allow the cost of someone to register to attend SGC to drop as they are met.  It's a pretty unique way to think.  Could you imagine if it works? Wow, we'd have one heck of a party.

Update! - August 10th, 2012

We've heard a lot of feedback and it looks like we've done a poor job explaining some pretty important stuff. We want to be as clear as possible about how the Kickstarter money would be used, why SGC costs so much to produce and why our stretchgoals (above) are so crazy.  Take a quick look at this video and hopefully we'll answer some of your questions.

Also we want everyone to know that we are going ALL OUT to raise awareness of this Kickstarter with a 12 hour marathon live stream TODAY from Noon to Midnight (Central Time) on ScrewAttack.com and a 48 hour live stream starting August 23rd at Midnight.  The first 24 will have the entire ScrewAttack crew gaming hard with the second 24 having ScrewAttack founder, Craig, flying solo for 24 non-stop hours.  It's going to be NUTS!  We can do this!

FAQ

  • SGC will be open to all ages although if you are under 18 you will need your parents written approval at on site registration.

  • Right now we’re only saying “Summer 2013” in the “Dallas/Forth Worth, Texas area” as if we’re successful in getting SGC 3 kickstarted we’ll dig into locking down a venue and dates. As soon as we have a date and location you’ll be the first to know. Make sure to keep track of updates on our Facebook page.

  • While we would love to change the date and venue to fit everyone’s needs unfortunately it’s not realistic :( Just know that you’ve greatly contributed to the greatest party in gaming returning AND you’ll still get all those great rewards besides admission!

    Last updated:
  • The idea is simple - if we're fortunate enough to have 1000 people pledge $100 we'll reach our goal and SGC can make it's return. In addition, those who pledge $100 also get a boat load of rewards. Keep in mind this is a Kickstarter project and we're trying to resurrect the greatest party in gaming with your support.

  • If you are a non-US Amazon Mechanical Turk user you may experience a problem trying to pledge. Kickstarter has alerted Amazon about this bug. Sorry this is annoying. To circumvent this, you should create a new Amazon Payments account. On the Amazon Payments sign-in page, click "I am a new customer." You will need to use an alternative email address that does not already have an account associated with it.

  • We'll do you 10 better and give you the Top 20 this way you can know where your city stands. Cities are according to ScrewAttack.com's Google Analytic based on traffic from January 1st, 2012 through July 20th, 2012. If you don't see your city on the list spread the word in your city and maybe you can move up the list by the end of the year:

    New York, London, Toronto, Melbourne, Los Angeles, Sydney, Houston, Chicago, Calgary, Montreal, Edmonton, Stockholm, Winnipeg, Brisbane, Ottawa, Dublin, San Diego, Santiago, San Antonio, Las Vegas

    Last updated:
  • We asked Kickstarter and their exact answer was:

    "Unfortunately we can't use any other payment processors, since PayPal doesn't allow flexible payments -- that is, payments in which a pledge is made in advance, and only charged for that amount if the project is successful. Because of this, we have to use Amazon Payments, and unfortunately they only take credit cards. Sorry for any inconvenience!"
