What have we been up to?

So far, two weeks have passed since the end of our Kickstarter campaign, and, after dealing with the many hassles that come with transferring a very large sum of money from one bank account to another, we’re slowly but surely assembling the various parts of the new Retronauts podcast. Turns out that without the backing of a major website, working out the supplies, logistics, and locations involved in podcast recording can take much longer than you’d think — but we’re all doing our best to devote time from our hectic lives to ensure the Retronauts machine will run smoothly, and with very little maintenance. We thank you for your patience!

Over the past few weeks, we’ve already contacted some of you about your rewards; if you donated to any of the tiers that include non-material prizes like podcast and video topics, no doubt you’ve already received an e-mail. (And if not, check your spam folder!) We’re still sorting through the various issues involved with making and shipping lots of very cool merchandise, and since our friends at FanGamer are doing us a major favor by offering to help, it’s not our place to start lighting fires under butts. That said, we’re all very confident that our physical goodies will be amazing, so just know they’ll be worth the wait.

In the absence of any podcast content, we’re going to try to do some weekly livestreams on our Twitch.tv page to fill the gap. In fact, today (May 6) from 6:00-8:00pm PDT, I’ll (your pal Bob) be streaming some classic SNES games, while chatting with viewers in our Twitch.tv audience. We’ll most likely be using our Twitter page to announce and take requests for any upcoming livestreams, so please follow us there if you haven’t!

That’s all for now. You know where to find us if you have any questions!
