    If it keeps going at the rate it is, it should be backed by a week. I'm glad they rejected that gamepad design. Buttons would have been hard to reach. D-pad might have been cool though, possibly even better for fighters.

    Very cool. Hopefully it's released in North America to the Amazon-ish sites so we don't have to pay expensive international postage.

    It's a little over $11 extra for worldwide shipping of a beautiful 300 page hardback book. I wouldn't exactly call that expensive. I don't believe they distribute through Amazon or other third parties either, at least they didn't with their Sensible Software book.

    30k aim reached in 3 days
    Curious to see what they are going to add to the book with the money they will get from now on.

    Well if there's no alternative I would go through the UK vendor, but would be good (for the author) if there was a local option.

    Backed. The Mega Drive is still probably my all-time favourite console.

    new update

    Meanwhile, I'm pleased to announce that we've introduced a couple of fantastic new interviewees into the fold: Rich Karpp (Developer of Vectorman and Vectorman 2) and Michael Latham (Producer of Eternal Champions) will be chatting with us about their Genesis experiences. In the last update I mentioned that Greg Johnson (co-creator of ToeJam & Earl) was on board and I'm excited to say he has sent us a big ol' .zip file full of early development artwork. I hope you will all find the below image just as exciting as I did...
