New Kickstarter today: Crash 'Magazine' 2018 Annual

Post by kiwimike » Fri Jul 21, 2017 9:15 pm

Anyone else signed up for this kickstarter? I thoroughly enjoyed the kickstarter and receiving Oli Freys Art Book, so this was one I wanted to sign up as soon as it launched.

A new crash magazine, but all colour and hardcover. Yes please! :)

I saw this, I thought it was a brilliant idea.. they've already almost doubled their initial ask, hopefully Zzap! do one also!

Thanks for that, I always stuff up link things, but I knew some kind soul would follow with one :)

Off to a terrific start. I just bought the Annual, although has some cool little add ons. Had the first update, it's going gangbusters so sounds like they're sorting out some extra rewards for levels of funding reached, which is cool. With Olis art book we got quite a few little extras.

No problem fella. The perks have to be some of the best yet in a kickstarter like this, I'm good friends with the guy producing them and even in the direction of other content exclusively created for the retro gaming fan. But yeah, this seems to be a big hitter, love the annual page layouts and if only I was a Speccy fan I'd be all over this also.

Best of luck to Chris and crew on his one.

Backed! :D

Gone for the wallet pledge. I would have gone for the signed canvas, but tbh I'm not buying a piece of art I haven't seen first.


Great to see it's going so well. And yeah a Zzap! version would be awesome, and will be unbelievable (considering the success of Crash! kickstarter) if it doesn't go ahead next.

More goal rewards added. A calendar for everyone if it hits the 30K mark (it's 24K atm I think with about 20 days to go), and I understand more stretch goals may emerge. A baseball cap is available now too.
*Edit, now at over 29k

Changed my bid to the all in! Hope its a good canvas (hopefully a nice Chrismassy one). Shame theres no Loony merchandise, but theres still time yet! Great to see its passed £30k now which surely means a Zzap! Christmas special is a formality?

It's up over 41k now so another milestone reached, another perk :) Their stretch goals are brilliant. So for backing just the annual, you get a Frey art calendar, Crash badge, Frey pentagram art poster, 50% off any other fusion game book voucher...and not far off 8 extra pages added to the annual. That's how you do a kickstarter campaign. And you know these guys are true to their word as well.

I've got it but my wife has confiscated it for Christmas. From what I've seen flicking through, it looks excellent. Great job Boyo.

Looking forward to it, although I know I have another week or two of waiting yet for it to get here!

I just noticed I headed this topic up as Crash annual '2018' ...plonker that I am. A year ahead of myself.

However, sounds like the Zzap 64 2018 Annual is now a very strong rumour! Will be back in for that one, that's for sure! :)

Scratch that- I was right in the first place! It is 2018 annual. Old age kicking in.

Mine just arrived this morning, I'm astounded as didn't expect it until the new year. My first glimpse is- wow. Superb. Looking forward to a good settle down and read later on. :)
