Sensible Software biography on Kickstarter

I don't think anyone else has posted this. If they have, massive apologies, but the search removes the word "Sensible" because apparently it's too common a word!

A Sensible Software biography has been proposed over on Kickstarter: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...ad-only-memory

Sensible Software 19861999 will tell the story of Sensible through interviews and anecdotes from those who were there including Jon Hare and the Sensible team and a feast of visuals celebrating the company's idiosyncratic, groundbreaking style.

Looks like it might be a pretty swish book, hopefully have some interesting stories in there. Judging by the funding, it looks pretty much guaranteed to happen too.

I was just checking to see if anyone else has posted this. It looks like it's going to be awesome and they're well on their way to reaching their goal with 20 days left.

I'm trying to justify a signed edition as an early Christmas present to myself!

The video alone is worth a dollar or two in donations. Such fantastic, funny work!

I pledged $38 towards this last week. It looks really good and I'd love to see this come to pass and it is indeed looking like that might be the case.

(Was half-tempted to pledge $750 for the reward of a night out with Jon Hare and Gary Penn, doubtless with lots of alcohol involved. A lot of money but a once-in-a-lifetime thing...)

Hi guys!

Recently I've chanced upon the article about Sensible Software last unfinished game, which Jon Hare and Richard Joseph had been working on several years: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/se...article?page=6
There is link for download there but it's not working.

Somehow I couldn't find anything about it anywhere.
Do you have any information or could anyone ask Jon? I couldn't find any contact for him either...
