The Atari ST and the Creative People vol. 2 (Campaign till 21th Oct.)

Postby nada-san » Wed Oct 04, 2017 3:00 pm

Hi there,
the next attempt is on Kickstarter now.

If you are an old scener, gamer or just an admirer of the Atari ST demoscene, come by and visit my campaign at:
http://kck.st/2jNMse1

I have tons of new informations on the timespan between 1991–1993/94. It’s not exactly determined where the book will end.
But I know you will be very surprised that I got another batch of secretive insights from industry guru Marc Rosocha. Other than that this volume will be the heart of the series, with actually over 30 persons take part with their memories. It will be so condensed that if it would be a zip-file and you unpack it, you suddenly would lying on the ground – buried under a wagonload of pages. :lol:

Volume 2 is called BEYOND THE BORDERS and goes beyond – in every aspect. This volume not only presents some of the best artistic works on Atari’s 16-bit computers, but also gives the readers a chance to experience the downfall of the home computer industry from an Atari perspective.

Come over to just have a look! :cheers:

Best regards,
Marco

How are the conditions different/better on Indiegogo?
Also noticed that the the project goal will be 30% lower and a 12–18 % discount on all pledges will be introduced in this new campaign. How does that affect the project and the book? I assume that you'll need to cut down on something?

A cut down is not needed, if we reach the projected goal over time. Indiegogo is much more flexible here and offers a variety of chances. We first go for a 15 days campaign on a lower goal. If we reach it, I can confidently start with the work on the book. If not, there is a chance to lenthening the time. Afterwards the project stays open for the whole project time, for months, so the rest can come in over time. There is little risk in it.

But it is absolutely important to raise about 70% in the beginning, thus I am able to fulfill the contract so to say.

On Kickstarter you must raise everything at once or you fail.

Regards,
Marco

Come on people! For 35 EUR you'll get a book about your beloved Atari computer with lots of great stories and interviews!
It's not like we have a lot of books coming out each year!

The campaign needs YOU to succeed. It needs another 6000 EUR in 8 days or we might never get the opportunity to read this book!
