    So some of us were late to the party or just all in all slacked.

    Brought up today and if estimates are right we only need 25 sales to make this happen.

    Would be full set of the TV magazines and guess at the moment is 99£ plus shipping. Shipping might be hefty as its 17-20 magazine of shipping weight.

    Trying to get a guage on how many people would be interested?

    I'd buy me a set of the mags and fund a second set for McFungo.

    I'd love to, and seeing that it's in GBP, I assume they'll ship from the UK? I'd need some time in advance to secure the funds, but I'd definitely love to!

    Already have most of the issues, I am only missing around two of the special editions. Any way to order them ala carte?

    By the way, I could make a Youtube video for this and get us some help, but I would need a specific link to send people to.

    I'm not positive about all the details yet. But wanted to see if we had more ppl to commit.

    They would definitely be shipping from europe and possibly the UK?

    Probably not since I was all in at the time, but maybe if they were all full size like the first issue of the initial run.

    Will they be the same quality as last time, or will Murphy be using the quality that the switch player magazines now have?

    Although i loved the vita mags that i got, the images were often blurry, or the ink made pages stick together and tear. The switch ones look quite professional now!

    Very good questions and looks like they will be higher quality like the switch magazine.

    Definitely interested in this one! Just hoping they could undervalue it when shipping for us outside the UK if they do reprint it :D

    The will be A5. It's just not viable to have the A4. It would be stupidly expensive, unfortunately.

    The finish quality will be comparable or perhaps even higher than Switch Player, but for image quality there's not a lot we can do; in terms of pixels the magazine is of a higher number than the Vita's images, they look blurry because of that.

    It's been approved by Kickstarter, and I've done all the back end stuff. I'm just proofing and fine-tuning the details and it'll probably go up this week.

    Could we get a box to keep them in, with the vita logo or something?

    Hi,

    I could be interested.

    However right now isn't the right timing, at least for me :D

    Can this be launched after November 2018.

    The end of the year gaming glut is starting and i won't have the 125€ to support the reprint :(

    If you need me to commit to two mag sets for you so you can acquire your copies at your leisure please let me know as I will to help you as well as "us" to meet the minimum re-prints on your behalf. I just request to receive your blessing to do so because even I struggle for food and shelter money from time to time as well.

    It's more that i have to save some money in order to pay for the French residence tax which was over 2 000€ last year for my household :(

    I will keep your offer in mind, see how this will unfold and if necessary remind you that you made me this offer :D

    To be honest, I'm hoping this will be done around February. We're entering Holiday Season.

    Second all of it. I'd like to have some time to ensure I can get the money. About €125 over the course of a few months is much easier than next week or so.

    Yeah same here. I'd be interested and would love to support, but there are just too many other financial obligations for me right now - not all of them necessary for survival of course, but still would not feel comfortable dropping this much extra money within the next few months.

    I know some of you have said you would prefer to wait, but time is ticking - waiting until February isn't viable for me or the team - it's going to take a few months to put the issue together and be about two months before I see the funds - meaning that waiting until February would stall this until April/May.

    So with that in mind, the Kickstarter is now LIVE. It will run until October 14th, after which you chance to get a full reprint will pass. The stand alone issue *may* still be available (probably via Switch Player's site) but you can pledge for that alone.

    Thanks for your support, and fingers crossed this will work - it's all or nothing.

    Oh man! That's soon! I respect the decision, though. I'll so my best! With some careful planning I might make it :)

    Let's hope it makes it!!
