Uh, Wow.

Posted: August 9th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: production | 12 Comments »

Folks, I throw up my hands – I am blown away by how many orders are coming in, how many kind words, how many links and fanmails and references and the rest.

I am trying to set a goal of having all orders out by Friday, international or other. It is touch and go whether this can be achieved, but I certainly will have a good majority if not all. I am truly humbled here. This is the absolute best problem to have.

I just sent a check to the coin company, because we’re starting to enter the general realm of selling out the initial run, and making new coins takes about three weeks. Oh, and the coins cost 20% more this time because the price of gold has gone up. Who knew gold prices would affect a documentary? Ken Burns never has this problem. Anyway, every copy gets a coin, that’s a guarantee.

Thanks, everyone!

    Wait, the coins have real actual gold in them? You shouldn’t have… Awesome. :)

    Jennifer (look back a few entries) bought Get Lamp for me for our 11th wedding anniversary. No where else does a better partner exist. :)

    Jason! Just finished watching the DVDs. AMAZING work. It reminded me what I was trying to achieve by going into game development in the first place. Well worth the money, and the coin was a wonderful touch. The amount of work you put into this is mind-boggling, but extremely appreciated. There’s nothing else I can say but… THANKS!

    Thank-you, Jason. My copy arrived yesterday, and instead of delaying gratification I just watched it immediately, complete with extras, in one sitting.

    I still get sad about the demise of Infocom (and Level 9 and Magnetic Scrolls, for that matter), but it was so good to see all those Imps talking about the good times on your film.
