This interests me as someone on limited pocket money in the '80s bought a lot of good and also horrible mastertronic games

Well bugger me with a broomstick! I backed this project in 2016 and its been dead in the water for a very long time now.

But there is suddenly life! A response after months of people complaining and asking for refunds it seems the book could actually happen. I'm not holding my breath for too long but there is a second person helping now - a chap that apparently has a Mastertronic facebook page?! (Simon Plumbe).

Fingers crossed.

I'd totally forgotten about this. Some of these funding things are taking ridiculously long times now, I'm very weary what I back due to being burnt a couple of times. I wish they could all be as slick as the Fusion book guys :)

I'd have definitely bought the book, but I'm not a kickstarter person. If it surfaces though, I'd be in for a copy,

Books are relatively low cost safe bets on Kickstarter. All of the ones I've backed have surfaced eventually, though some have taken a couple of years and a roundabout route to publishing.

Agreed. Everything I've booked on Kickstarter has always arrived on my doorstep eventually. Perhaps it's because it's because I've only ever backed documentaries and books, or perhaps it's because I've been lucky. I always have a positive attitude that the person at the other end is honest and will attempt to deliver what they've promised, and up to now I've never been let down. Long may it continue.
