I sort of don’t know how to thank you really, beyond getting into being a bit gushy, but hopefully you know how sincerely I appreciate this. I’ve said it before, but I don’t see this entirely as you backing me personally… more that you’ve put your faith in me to shepherd something you want to see.
The last 24 hours were chaotic and overwhelming, but amazing. We’ve already had interest from a bunch of potential new guests, offers of amazing filming locations, and other help.
The brilliant Gameplay Jenny described what we’re trying to achieve to me as nothing less than a cultural shift; showing that there’s still a place on YouTube for well-written, funny, ambitious, well-produced, and original gaming content.
We’ve already reached our first three stretch goals – Mr T, me eating a load of goujons, and a Christmas Special, and now we’re closing in on the fourth one, a regular Datablast of info at the end of each ep. If we can raise £25,000 – and I’m actually confident that we can – you’ll also get a scary Halloween ep.
When we get to £30,000… the stretch goals are going to start getting a lot more mental. I’ll tell you here exclusively that for the £30,000 stretch goal we’re going to beat Elon Musk at his own game and put a goujon in space. Or, at least, try to. It’ll make sense within the context of an episode. Or won’t. Don’t matter.
Anyhow… if we’re going to make this as big and noisy and ambitious as I think it can be, we need as many people to hear about as possible. Already I’ve been amazed at how many old Digi readers are discovering this.
So, a quick call to action. Please keep spreading the word. Tell friends, tell family, spread it across your social media accounts. We’ve barely had any press, despite my best efforts – thank you, Gizmodo and Retro Gamer for being the only major sites to run articles – so we have to do this by word-of-mouth alone. But hey; that’s how Digi did it back in the day. Wouldn’t feel like our thing as much if the mainstream media gave us attention, right?
Thank you, again. So much. More news soon. Moc-on!
