Hey kids, I’m part of another Kickstarter project… well, sort of. This isn’t my venture, but if it goes through and hits its funding, I’ll be contributing a monthly column to the thing. It’s called RETRO, and it will be a magazine about classic games that lets me contribute without having to lay out, edit, and publish it myself. Let me tell you, that sounds pretty great.
I’m in no way the highlight of the magazine. A whole lot of well-known folks, including Jeff Green, Seanbaby, Andy Eddy, and Chris Kohler will be contributing to the magazine in various ways (if it’s funded). I’ve been trading emails for a while with the guy behind it, Mike Kennedy, and he’s legit. The layouts and content plan seem solid. And I don’t stand to profit from this venture beyond a small stipend if I manage to clear enough time in my schedule to write a regular column.
So, please do check it out and consider backing it. I honestly don’t care so much about my own role in this; I just want an excuse for Jeff Green to write brilliantly funny things about video games again.
