GWJ Donation Drive Update - $20,000 Stretch Goal Reached!

With 11 days to go we've reached our first stretch goal! Thanks to your donations we will do a series of "Let's Play" style videos over the coming year. We're not done yet! Our next goal is a PDF magazine featuring writing from GWJ staff and alumni. This would be a fully formated digital magazine with layouts, interviews, a letter from the editor and all that cool stuff.

We're fairly sure Julian can't destroy a one time magazine, but I guess we'll find out if we hit $25,000!

He'll do his best, I'm sure.

Onwards and upwards people!

All out of money (donated already though), but really hope we can make that one happen as well.

This goal is all well and good, since video means I don't have to do any work (beyond managing the post schedule). The next goal being all about written text ... sounds like more work.

So feel free to waste your money on something silly, instead. Unless, that is, you want to hurt me.

Jerk.

Doesn't it being "one-issue" mean we've already conceded the point that Julian will shut this one down?

I keed, I keed. I'm very excited about the possibility of doing a real magazine with GWJ alumni! Lots of talent have come through here throughout the years and I'd love to see them all in one place.

So feel free to waste your money on something silly, instead. Unless, that is, you want to hurt me.

I love how much collateral damage this drive is doing. First Julian now wordy. I'm already planning to use it's and its with random interchangeability.

Note, this is not different than what I do now. (stealing that joke before Mr. W can get to it)

Where's the confetti cannon?

Wordy needs to step up his game. Julian already branded us "assholes". "Jerk" isn't even trying.

Just saw the new icon on Robear. That is awesome.

And y'all haven't even picked article number 2 yet.

Oh, Certis, did you wanna mention that the magazine will be 100% SparklePony-focused?

Lies!

There will be a daring, but tasteful underwear shot of yours truly right at the digital equivalent of the center-fold of the magazine.

Spoiler:
And yes, I will be modeling the new, upcoming line of GWJ branded action-gaming underwear.

Didn't someone get a two-time perverts post? Or did we not reach that?

Also, FTFY!

I look forward the lavish attention that will be paid to iPhone games in this tiny publication.

You mean the spring Wiener Bomb Collection?

Wait...wasn't there talk of a shaving?

By Grabthar's Hammer. What a shaving.

I have nothing to say. I'm speechless.

EDIT: Ooo, I now have a new icon. Again, words fail me.

Great news! I'm looking forward to the video series.

So now we're shaving ponies and using their sparkling manes for horsehair weiner bomb lingerie, which Hedge is modeling? And we're doing this to hurt Wordy and Julian?

Man, I thought this place was about videogames...

That's because we haven't yet revealed that this is all just stealth marketing for our upcoming iOS title we're launching: Sins of a Sparkle Pony Must Die Virtual Magazine Story 6. It's an FTL-like.

Finally donated, not late, to keep that gravy train moving.

I'd buy/read that

Very nice. Can't wait to see the vids.

For the Let's Play videos, how will the titles be selected? Will there be an open suggestion period from listeners followed by some kind of poll? Or are you just going to do hot-game-of-the-week?

They will be exclusively playing hot-game-of-all-time, forever: Secret of the Magic Crystal.

It's largely going to be dependent on which games we own and which ones inspire comment. It won't be a "here's how this game works" sort of thing. We'll save that for live streams.

Once we're rolling, we'll definitely be open to suggestions!

I would love to hear you guys playing some Planetside 2 together.
