Insert Coin Documentary Secures Funding Target

The crowd funding journey has official ended for Insert Coin: Inside Midway's 90s Revolution - and the coins were indeed inserted.

1,250 backers have emerged to help far and away exceed the documentary project's original target of $75,000 - achieving $79.5k at the time of this writing! The pledge ensures the retrospective film will go ahead, with a tentative targeted Blu-Ray release for 2017.

The achievement was clearly humbling for former Midway Games developer and documentarian Joshua Tsui. Writing to the project's Kickstarter page, he expressed gratitude and excitement in a statement:

Not sure what to say here, actually. This project has been in my head for a couple of years now and I was never sure if it was something that would be interesting to any “civilians”. "Civilians" meaning anyone who does not work in the industry.

That’s been one of the really pleasant surprises of this experience, finding out that this era touched so many people’s lives. Many people have reached out and expressed how this era of gaming was their childhood. To have worked on games that touched so many people is such an honor. What’s going to be an even bigger honor is making this documentary and adding to those memories. Seriously, I’m truly blown away and humbled by the support from fans.

There are a lot of people to thank so I’m going to hold off on that for a bit, but definitely will get to it. I will say that it was amazing how so many people went out of their way to help out with the campaign. From constantly tweeting about it to helping me edit the video, these people made a massive difference. Will drop names soon.

So now that we’ve crossed the finishing line, I now need to seriously think about stretch goals. We have 24 hours so I want to do something special. But I seriously need coffee to wake up so stay tuned for another update!

You all are the best.

Special thanks to everyone who joined us in supporting the project. Well done!
