The Mastertronic Archives book - what happened to it?

Post by PeteProdge » Fri Nov 24, 2017 12:16 pm

Does anyone know what the status of this crowdfunder is?
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/15 ... c-archives

I mean, does this book actually exist anywhere (promised for about this time last year)? It's definitely the kind of thing I'd snap up in a shot. I have this odd desire to play every Mastertronic game ever, and there's about 918 different titles they've released.

Looks like an interesting book.

Judging by some of the comments on the kickstarter campaign page the author must be having some health issues preventing completion. I see people asking for refunds on it which is a shame, never good to see people lose faith. Problem is though you're financing the project by backing it, not guaranteeing an end product.

I think he had a heart attack at one stage last year but seems to just keep being delayed, in the comments it talks about problems with his knees.... He had 3 books on the go and all of them have stopped. On one of the other projects a relative has died, another his heart, then different issues etc. I think in cases like this there's nothing wrong in people expecting refunds.
