The End..?

March 22nd - via:
Hi everyone, So that’s that then. Our campaign has come to an end and we didn’t quite reach our target. I say ‘quite’. We fell considerably short of raising enough to fund a single issue of Continue, let alone an entire year’s worth. Ah... (Read More)

Final Call

March 22nd - via:
Hi everyone, Just a quick message as we hit the last two hours of the campaign. We're highly unlikely to hit our funding target (unless you're a philanthropic billionaire that likes to make last-minute day-saving donations), but if anyone wants to up... (Read More)

Kickstarter Katchup – 3rd March 2013

March 3rd - via:
There haven’t been any ‘losers’ in the Katchup for a while, partly because projects that are moving very slowly tend to be removed before they run out of time, and partly because there haven’t been quite as many small projects to cover. The list of ‘players’ is increasing rapidly though and even though the first comment will undoubtedly be from somebody reminded me of a game that I’ve missed, there are plenty of things to see. However, the influx of new entrants is balanced somewhat by this week’s losers. One is a small, surreal project, the other is a grander and more direct proposition. The creators of both have vowed to continue their work in some form. (Read More)

Audio Updates - iPad Issue

March 1st - via:
Hi everyone, It was brought to our attention that the audio updates haven't always been accessible from certain iPads - the controls not showing up due to technical doodads. We wouldn't want anyone to miss our little fireside chats so we've uploaded... (Read More)
