Regular readers of our fine magazine will be aware of our columnist Mr Biffo – a man more formally known as Paul Rose, the driving force behind the legendary Teletext games magazine Digitiser.
Today, he’s launched a Kickstarter campaign for his project Digitiser: The Show, a retro gaming YouTube show which promises to be “The sort of gaming show we’ve always wanted, but which broadcasters are too scared to make – and that YouTube isn’t offering.” Mr Biffo will be joined by co-hosts Gameplay Jenny, Larry Bundy Jr, Paul Gannon and Octavius Kitten, as well as guests including the likes of Kim Justice, Ashens, Danny Wallace and Violet Berlin.
Digitiser: The Show is scheduled for six main episodes, a secret episode for backers a special episode in front of a live audience. The project blew through its £7,000 funding goal with great ease after launching this morning, and is currently over the £17,000 mark. Backer rewards start from £5 for an on-screen credit, moving to £15 for the secret episode and £30 for the chance to be in the live audience. At higher tiers you’ll find signed Wil Overton posters, a DVD and more. If you want to back it, you’ve got until Sunday 8 April to do so.
