CONTINUE MAGAZINE HEADS TO KICKSTARTER
GLOBAL DIVIDED NATIONS OF TERRA, 8 th February, 2012 – Monyo Publishing Ltd is excited (and a touch nervous) to announce that on Sunday 10 th February, 2012 it will be launching an ambitious Kickstarter funding campaign to secure enough backing for another year’s worth of issues.
Published four times a year, Continue is a features-led magazine about gaming culture that covers all aspects of gaming, from the biggest AAA console shooters to the most obscure board games known to man. Rather than carry the usual mix of reviews and previews, Continue instead is first and foremost interested in bringing the reader interesting stories form around the world of gaming.
“Continue has been an immensely rewarding creative venture,” explained Continue’s Editor Paul Presley. “What we’re looking to do now is secure enough funding via Kickstarter to give the magazine a chance to build on its currently very enthusiastic audience to a point that each issue can sell enough to fund each subsequent edition. To do that, we need to raise enough funding to carry on producing issues and invest in a sufficient degree of marketing to bring Continue’s message to a wider world.”
The Kickstarter campaign will be looking to raise £50,000 of funding across forty days, with backers able to claim rewards such as the magazine itself, exclusive printed artwork taken from Issue #01 by renowned ‘in-game photographer’ Duncan Harris at www.deadendthrills.com, and even the chance ot join Continue’s crack team of gamers at a fabulous, star-studded* boardgaming night in swanky London (*stars may be less studded than advertised).
Should the funding target be achieved, there are several intriguing stretch goals in place that will look to take the Continue brand into areas beyond a basic digital magazine publication.
Continue’s first three issues are still available to purchase for just $2.99/£1.99 via www.continuemag.com. Readers can purchase the features-led, gaming culture magazine in a form that can be read on any digital device at any time. The single price provides readers with access to all three digital formats – PDF files for reading the full magazine experience, .mobi files for transferring to a Kindle device or app, and .epub files for reading on almost all eBook readers including iBooks on the Apple iPad tablet.
