Funding complete via Kickstarter!

Hi all!

Earlier this week, funding this book was completed via Kickstarter. Of course, if you already pledged via Unbound, then you're already in line to get your copy when it's ready!

As for my progress, the writing is about 95% complete. I still need to do some edits on the text, plus finish gathering some images. I'm also weighing importing some PC games to get some nicer quality cover scans for certain games. This should all be completed within the next month or so, at which point all of the files will be handed over to Unbound for design and publication.

I'll be continuing to make some updates here as well as on the site as to the progress of the book.

Thanks again!
