Neat find!  It's been ages since I last bought a book and I've never contributed to anything on KickStarter, but this may just motivate me to kill the two birds with one stone.

I'll have to admit I'm pretty ignorant in the ways of KickStarter.  I thought typically you request for funding at the beginning of your project?  In his case though it sounds more like he's asking for "funding" after he basically has already finished the book, and so basically he is using kickstarter as a commerce platform to sell the book?  Is that common on KickStarter, and what are the advantages over other alternatives?

There's a thread over at Lemon Amiga, as well.

I'm looking forward to this. :thumbsup:

That sounds quite good and I had a quick look at it by following the links, I see it's going to be the 25th anniversary of lemmings which will be in 2016.

All exciting stuff,  :thumbsup:

Lets hope everything goes according to plan and good luck for the book.

Unfortunately, I don't know of anyone here who has all twelve of those pins. I have the mail-order form that they could be ordered from once you got the one included in the game's box, and even that doesn't show the whole lot, if memory serves. I only have one from that set, myself (the Highland Lemming), and only know of one place where a photograph of all of them together exists. That's here, for what it's worth; They have a contact e-mail address published there - maybe they might be able to provide a better picture for you?

Wait wait wait, we can buy it now? :D Awesome!

But, what happened to the Kickstarter campaign? I'm tempted to order now, but I don't want to miss out on potential goodies there... ;P

Fab, thanks for the details - will go and grab a copy now. :thumbsup:

EDIT: And there we go. I ordered a set of your fine greetings cards, too - more merchandise is always a good thing. :D

Wahey, look what's arrived!



Really pleased with these - they really are gorgeous. Certainly too nice to write in! :D I'm thinking I might get some little frames and hang them up together.

I'm looking forward to the book's arrival even more, now.

Shall do when the need arises!

I've just added both versions of the book, and both greetings card options, to The Lemmings Fan Goods Index, too. It is in plenty of awesome company. :thumbsup:

Got my copy of the book today!



I haven't had the chance to take a proper look today, but a quick flip through when I had a moment showed that it looks very professional indeed. Nice work! :thumbsup:

Got my book today :)

This is really an AMAZING job, and it goes without saying that it is a must-have for Lemmings fans!
Every official Lemmings game is here (even unofficial games are listed), there are a lot of screenshots on many, many, many systems, and it's full of colors (except for the GameBoy version :D :D)!!! I really enjoy watching all these screenshots captured from different versions of the games!
There are also level-maps, interviews from the DMA guys, etc...

This is a great book! Congratulations :thumbsup:

Moreover, the very good surprise was to find my game in the Android part of the book: thanks! :)
