Twin Galaxies #Right2Game! $250,000.00 Indiegogo Fundraising Campaign

Not sure if this is the appropriate forum to post this, but I wanted to share this with you guys. Even if you can't make a monetary contribution, even passing this a long to others would go a long way

Here's the link to the Indiegogo page: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/t.../905864#/story

Twin Galaxies Funding – Right To Game #Right2Game! Campaign


December 14, 2015
Jace Hall, owner of Twin Galaxies is asking for $250,000 to take Twin Galaxies to the next level through an Indiegogo #Right2Game Fundraising Campaign

Twin Galaxies' #Right2Game Campaign
Twin Galaxies' #Right2Game Campaign Los Angeles, United States
Quote:
Twin Galaxies is on a mission to raise awareness that avid gaming is a worthwhile, socially acceptable, and important activity that’s deserving of more understanding and support. To accomplish this,we are raising funds for the specific things listed below:

A new social media website platform module with features tailored exclusively for video game players to get greater recognition and exposure.
A mobile app to increase access, participation and mobile gaming recognition within the Twin Galaxies system.

Live streamed events, programs and competitions broadcasted through our media network Twin Galaxies Live at TwinGalaxiesLive .

We have been working hard, but can’t get to the finish line on our own. For the small cost of a T-Shirt, and your strong word of mouth, you can help us raise $250,000 and move us toward completion on all of the above as quickly as possible.

At the very core of our beliefs is the idea that we all have the #Right2Game without being culturally shamed, and that we should collectively foster a social climate where gamers feel comfortable considering the career options, mental and physical health benefits, and meaningful social connections that the video game space provides.

All of our initiatives aim to accurately represent the spirit of gaming as a fun, healthy, and ultimately rewarding activity that should not be frowned upon and discouraged.

But in order for our planned efforts to reach success, we need your support. We’re calling on gamers everywhere to join us in our fight We are excited to have resounding celebrity support for our cause and our goals, from 3-time NBA Champion RICK FOX, to JAMIE LEE CURTIS & CHRISTOPHER GUEST, creator of Mortal Kombat ED BOON, music producer and former "American Idol" judge RANDY JACKSON, and even comic book legend STAN LEE — many of whom have donated RARE items that are available as perks to help raise funds for our initiatives to endorse gamers.

Together, our goal is to transform public perception so that those who achieve in the area of video games—whether it’s playing them well, designing them, or growing communities around them—will be as respected and encouraged as those who achieve in sports, music, or any other cultural area where people choose to invest their time and efforts.

At $250,000, we can complete:
Our development of a social media platform addition specifically for gamers and their gaming accomplishments.

Maintenance and development of our core website, which preserves and promotes video game world records and high scores, submitted throughout the decades and from all around the world. We're also building a global online ranking & statistics system.

The Twin Galaxies mobile experience.

New Content Development for the Twin Galaxies Live live-streaming network that broadcasts positive player centric gaming content every day.

If we exceed our goals, we'll be able to start tackling:

The implementation of a no-content ID video submission and upload system.
Additional Outreach Staff dedicated to netting national attention for extraordinary gamers.

A true and proper “Gamer of the Year” award show.
A worldwide, industry cooperative, annual multi-platform, multi-genre video game “Olympics”

Last I checked, gaming was pretty much completely mainstream.

What's a hoodie humper?


Also I'm really not trying to be a negative Nancy but I thought TG had some new big shot CEO that was gonna turn everything around? Fishing for funding like this seems like they're not doing so well.

TG's strategy of promising hoodies to those who competed in IGBY on the TG team if they won. They did not win. I think they ended up in fifth place despite their hoodie humping.

Re: Twin Galaxies #Right2Game! $250,000.00 Indiegogo Fundraising Campaign

I can see the commercial right now:

"In the Arms of an Angel" starts up as it cuts to an a fat kid playing Call of Duty while slurping Mountain Dew, his Cheeto-dust encrusted hand mashing buttons, the whole time screaming obscenities about someone's mother.

Cut to Jace Hall making his pitch: "Blah blah blah, gamers are persecuted, blah blah, social networks, blah blah, give us money."

Cut to a clip of Ogre from Revenge of the Nerds screaming, "NNNNEEEERRRRDDDDSSSS!!!"

Cut a quick shot of a mean email stolen shamelessly from Cool Cat Saves the Kids.

Cut to clip of fat kid throwing a tantrum.

Cut to Jace reiterating his pitch, and hoodie humping for the next IGBY.

It ends on the TG logo as "In the Arms of an Angel" fades out.

That is a little weird but I don't think it's really a bad thing. If it motivates people to participate then it seems like it's a positive for us, right?

It doesn't seem too bad, but the way they did it came off really scummy, like they were trying to buy their way to the top.

That might just be my own biases, though. I understand that they're not under the same leadership that tried to charge for high score submissions, but something still seems off about these guys.

So basically $250,000 for a gamer's Facebook.

Sounds like things have not gone well for them since their meltdown a few years ago.

Re: Twin Galaxies #Right2Game! $250,000.00 Indiegogo Fundraising Campaign

After a couple of 35k drops the goal looks like it might be reached:

Although at only 32 backers, it doesn't seem like gamers are too concerned about the SJW's slander.

Re: Twin Galaxies #Right2Game! $250,000.00 Indiegogo Fundraising Campaign

Two anonymous donations of 35k? And since its flexible funding they just straight up keep that money even if they don't meet the goal.

People can spend money on what they want, but jeesh.....'us gamers' really want that societal approval huh.

Right, there is no other side of the coin. All this is doing is giving credibility to the Sarkeesians, the Kotakus, and the Polygons of the world. If anything give the money to them so they will shut the fuck up and stop trying to create controversy with their fucked up little alchemy pots.

Sounds about right to me.


So wait they can get Jamie Lee Curtis to go to dinner with someone if they donate enough money? She's supposedly worth like 35million, what dirt do they have on her to make her do all this crap?

Re: Twin Galaxies #Right2Game! $250,000.00 Indiegogo Fundraising Campaign

The issue with TG is that its always been focused on a very niche section of gamers. Its hard to believe they want to support the whole gaming community and not just promote the same agenda they've had for years.

"How much are they going to support the parts of the industry I'm interested in" is what any sane person is going to ask themselves. The only people seriously funding this are those in line with TG's old agenda.

Re: Twin Galaxies #Right2Game! $250,000.00 Indiegogo Fundraising Campaign

I don't know much about TG or its community but I always got the impression that they mainly care about old arcade gaming and that's pretty much it. Am I wrong?

Re: Twin Galaxies #Right2Game! $250,000.00 Indiegogo Fundraising Campaign

Some major hating going on in this thread. As far as Twin Galaxies is concerned they are primarily score keepers for video games new, and old. They do speed runs as well, but the speed running community has other sites they would rather go to. The reason why TG is thought of as Arcade only is because 90 percent of their press comes from Arcade game scores. Go check out their site, and you'll see that most of their current submitted scores have nothing to do with Arcade. If anything it's the news media that only cares about Arcade scores. TG is much broader than that.

Re: Twin Galaxies #Right2Game! $250,000.00 Indiegogo Fundraising Campaign

@George Riley: I don't mean any disrespect to TG's community and I count some of them as trusted friends. I just feel the wording of their funding appeal is sending very mixed messages. At the beginning its stated that they want the funds to create social awareness and acceptance of the hobby, worthwhile goals in my mind. Then there's a stark juxtaposition as you read on and their mission statement focuses completely on competitive gaming. Competitive gamers are a very, very small fraction of gamers. This just comes off as exclusive rather than inclusive.

There's nothing at all wrong with TG wanting to create and promote the competitive gaming culture, but when you're asking people to donate their money to your cause, you should be upfront and clear on exactly what that cause is.

I consider "simple mockery" an expression of hate. But now it just comes down to semantics since I am sure you disagree.
