Insert Coin: Inside Midway's '90s Revolution (Kickstarter)

Post by quantum » Wed Aug 12, 2015 8:14 am

5 days to go on Insert Coin: Inside Midway's '90s Revolution movie.

Should be great viewing for fans of arcade classics like NBA Jam, Wrestlemania, Mortal Kombat, SmashTV, NARC, etc. :mrgreen:

Don't worry - I'm not sure if it'll cost you anything as they quickly need a lot more backers to make it :(

I always enjoy looking at the top prize for the big donation, and this is a beauty! Wouldn't fancy the shipping cost though on the arcade machine!

Wow. That link has expired

What’s happened ? Not a scam is it ? What are the excuses for all this time ?

No, I don't think it's a scam.

It took a few years to get the film complete, but now they keep delaying as they want to release it at a film festival. Of course all of these festivals are currently cancelled so it faces an even longer delay. This is for their benefit - rather than backers - as they want to use a festival as a platform to get some fame and make more $$$ in sales than the KS raised.

It's the longest KS I've ever been part of! :twisted:

Yeah , a shame the backers can't get to see it while they take it round the festivals. At least it's been made & we'll get to see it eventually, unlike some Kickstarters!
