So, it’s that time of year where everyone in gaming is looking towards Essen – and here at The Little Metal Dog Show it’s no different. You’ll have hopefully heard the four episodes put together for last year’s event (if not, they’re all right here) and thought they were at least OK. They were a lot of work but attending Essen was an amazing experience – and I’d really like to do the whole thing all over again for 2012. And that’s where you guys come in.
To get The Little Metal Dog Show to SPIEL 2012 is going to cost a bit, so – after heeding the advice of some supporters – we’re giving the whole crowdfunding thing a go. Albino Dragon managed to pull in over $21,000 to get Ace of Spies into production but thankfully we need an awful lot less than that. The target is $800, which will be enough to get to Germany, sort out OK accommodation and get some decent audio gear to record interviews with. Also: a bit of currywurst, for currywurst is excellent.
Last year I managed to get nearly fifty interviews over the space of the four days and I’m aiming for even more this time around. If you’d like to help out, check out the indiegogo campaign and do what you can – even spreading the word will be massively helpful. For those who can chuck a few dollars in the pot there’s also stuff like badges, stickers and other things, but whatever you can do to help is appreciated.
Right. Enough cap in hand stuff. Here’s a little video saying pretty much the same stuff as above! Let’s see what happens, shall we?
