Re: 'Bedrooms to Billions' film project - how you can help!

They've replied on the Facebook page (to be fair, they always do seem to reply on that page very quickly) with a comprehensive update. Basically, they are finishing up the soundtrack and 30 minute documentary (seeking approval from those who are in it), then it will be ready to go together with t-sh...

Re: 'Bedrooms to Billions' film project - how you can help!

Hi Darran,

Yes, I think £50 is a little excessive (though I actually backed the Kickstarter at £120...). The main film is awesome though - not watched the extras yet, but hopefully they are the same high quality.

Re: 'Bedrooms to Billions' film project - how you can help!

Just asked the question on their Facebook page. They're normally quite good at getting back to you. Fingers crossed.

Re: 'Bedrooms to Billions' film project - how you can help!

Nope, no news on the perks still. Getting pretty peed off actually.

Re: 'Bedrooms to Billions' film project - how you can help!

Any Kickstarter backers heard anything about the perks yet? It's been a month since they sent the physical disks out, and they said they would write to everyone expecting a perk to confirm address etc. There's no update on their Facebook page that I can see, just continual attempts to hawk the film ...

Re: Introducing The Amiga Book

It should exist on the WhSmith's system, as I bought it from their Preston, Lancs town centre branch. Unless it's now totally sold out from Imagine, and they are saying they can't supply anymore?

Re: Introducing The Amiga Book

I got mine from WhSmith's in Preston yesterday, so it looks like they are making their way to the stores now.

Bloody good book too - kind of thing I'll probably find myself re-reading in years to come.

Re: Introducing The Amiga Book

Either this is the fastest selling bookazine in the history of Retro Gamer, or the physical copies haven't reached the shops yet. I've looked in 4 different WhSmith's and none of them have it. @ Darran - good to see this has some new articles, and reworked screenshots etc. One question - is 180 page...

Re: 'Bedrooms to Billions' film project - how you can help!

Still not arrived..... :( And neither have a few others judging by the FaceBook page. I think it was a bit naive of them to claim orders made by Sat 20th December would be delivered before Xmas.

Re: 'Bedrooms to Billions' film project - how you can help!

Same here. Today's post has been and gone and it's still not arrived. Somehow I don't think the below claim taken from their Facebook page is going to come true: UK orders of 'From Bedrooms to Billions' (the story of the British Video Games Industry) before Saturday 20th December 'will' arrive befor...

Re: 'Bedrooms to Billions' film project - how you can help!

Saturday basically over and my special edition blu-ray hasn't arrived, despite promises that it would definitely be here by Saturday. :?

To those who have received theirs, were any of you indiegogo or kickstarter backers? If so, did you receive your perks at the same time?

Re: 'Bedrooms to Billions' film project - how you can help!

Getting pretty miffed now. It's been two weeks since the last newsletter (the "imminent" update newsletter from 3 days ago hasn't materialised) and we are 3 days over the end of November, with still no physical media or perks in sight.

Re: 'Bedrooms to Billions' film project - how you can help!

The film makers have replied to my question on Facebook about shipping dates. Apparently, they have the final check discs and they'll be QC checking them this weekend, then if all is OK they will be going to Sony for replication and shipping. So, sounds like at least another 2 weeks slippage, althou...

Re: 'Bedrooms to Billions' film project - how you can help!

2 days till the end of November, and no indication that the physical media or perks are ready to ship. Why do I get the feeling there's another delay announcement imminent?

Re: 'Bedrooms to Billions' film project - how you can help!

I see an update newsletter has just come out. I backed at a tier which included the soundtrack, but haven't received a download code, so I've emailed them. I also asked if the physical copy is likely to be delayed further, given pressing only starts on the 19th November. I've also enquired about the...
