New ZZAP!64 Kickstarter now live!

Recommended Posts

Hello Commandos

If you saw my documentary (one of my favourite & most underrated videos https://youtu.be/LMs8gCQb4ok) you'll know how much I love ZZAP!64.

This time, I got to write for it! 🤯

It also includes a review of @The 8-Bit Guy's Planet X2 and X2.1 😉

This will be the last issue edited by legendary original 80s ZZAP! editor Roger Kean, so is truly historic. Although it hit the Kickstarter goal in under 2 hours (wow!) I recommend any C64 fan back this. See you there!

I have a love hate with Crowdfunding. Over the last 12 years of funding projects very few of the projects I've backed shipped without getting stuck in the mud for feature creep or underestimating what scaling up a product would look like.

Remember the Pebble watch? Sigh, so disappointing.

Anyway, this looks cool.

Yeah me too. This one's guaranteed. It's Chris Wilkins' 6th (I think) Kickstarter and this is the 3rd ZZAP! annual. All have delivered. The annual is already completed and we've been working hard on it for a few months. If you don't get yours I'll refund you personally

Yeah, I backed it anyway.

I'd love to see a Commodore publication come out like the new Amiga Magazine. Makes me regret not holding on to my 500 (still have the 64 though). Now I'm in eBay hell trying to pick one up 😉

Cool! We're planning a quarterly A5 paperback version after this Kickstarter, more like the original magazine. I'm proudly on board as a game reviewer.

I must check this out, sounds like a must-have. I wasn't a subscriber but remember buying some single issues. (Beside Swedish magazines I most clearly recall Zzap!64, Your Computer and the German magazine 64'er that we called Sixty-four'er...)

I watched your Zzap!64 documentary. Fantastic work as always. All your videos are extremely well done, both entertaining and educational : ).
