The first 24 Hours...

"Well, we've had worse days..."

Thank you. Sincerly and from the bottom of my heart, thank you.

I've been writing for years. So, so many years. My attic is full of comics featuring stick men I drew in primary school, plays I used to perform to my Nan, and about fifteen series worth of Doctor Who. Writing is in my blood, alonside last nights curry and an overly large amount of bilirubin. I think it's what I'm meant to do. Considering you lot broke every Unbound record in under a day, I'm starting to think you agree. 

There will be updates soon. Things are now in motion.

I'm so glad it went so well. This and the streams yesterday were so much fun. Can't wait to read it (and hopefully one day hear about the Doctor Who scripts).

PS Hi Rebecca!

I would bloody well hope things were in motion with over 4000 backers, and 900+% funding.

If they weren't in motion now, I'd fear I was being scammed!

I imagine some people would kill for fans like yours, the kind of people who give you loads of money...then celebrate the occasion by giving you even more money. Even I sort of did it. I had 700 twiddlies left, and during the stream I was patiently waiting for that 700% mark, just so I could write the number in twiddlies. :D

The book hasn’t come out yet and I already know it’s going to be the BEST book I’ve ever read! It combines my two favorite things video games and dan! Love you guys both!

Haven't broken the % funded record yet. But we're a measly 32% away from that so it's safe to say it's going to get broken.

You deserve ever last bit of love from the thousands of us that have pledged.

After a few rough calculations with unbounds royalty % and the average price per Lego brick, at 1000%, I've estimated that you can buy just short of one million Lego bricks. But you didn't hear that from me.

Say hi to Rebecca

Hello, it's pretty much save to say everyone loves your work so I won't repeat what they said but personally I just wanted to say I have been looking forward to your book ever since I heard about its existence. Dan your they funniest personal i listen to and rebecca your art, voice and warm heart is adorable and there needs to be more people in world like you two. Collecting books is hobby of mine (second only to video games) and this is probably the most expensive book i will be glad to add to it (couldn't decide between tortilla recipe or dog paw book mark so got collectors edition tier for both) XD

Last night's curry, for starters. At least you'll have the final chapters to proof-read while you're on the job. And if you decide a page or two needs improvement, well, you're in the perfect place...

No Dan, thank YOU.

I've been watching your videos since the Minecraft Buildy Thingy. I was 11 (or 10?) back then. I would look forward to coming home from school and being able to watch your videos on my dad's office computer. In those years you taught me more English than my elementary school and watching your videos entertained me for hours. I would show my mum a clip from your video that I thought was funny and she would laugh with me. (Even though in hindsight I realised that she didnt know anything about what was going on or didnt even understand the jokes). You also got me into videogames, which have been my saviour whenever I wanted to escape reality for a bit or just to blow off some steam. I've met a lot of nice people online. Some of which I have been friends with for year now. And I'm even visiting a friend I met online who lives in England this summer. That probably would have never happened if it wasnt for you. So thank you again <3 I hope you read this, tell Rebecca I said Hi :)

I worry for your hand as there are 1909 (on day 2) pledges for the signed hardback and then all upper tiers. Maybe train your dog to sign some of them.

This was one of the ways of paying you back and I gladly took the chance. I habe been watching your stuff since I found out you were the man behind some Machinema video's, if I'm correct (it's such a long time ago). I've enjoyed you for many, many years and I truly believe you deserve this!

Thanks and greetings from Holland!

Really glad this turned out so well for you! I'm really looking forward to reading it when it's done. If my limitation gets lifted during the summer, I'll be sure to upgrade for the Plays Video. (Hopefully there'll be one left for me) Until then, have fun working on the rest, and good luck signing all those copies ;)
