We got robbed two weeks ago when thieves broke into the MaGoo, smashing the driver’s side window and stealing our gaming computers, a remote hard drive containing our game data, a microphone, and damaging the interior in the process. While the police are investigating the theft, there is little hope that they will recover any of our gear.
Total loss of our gaming computers
The total loss of equipment and cost of the damage exceeds five thousand dollars, and the cost of security cameras and upgraded insurance will total at least a thousand dollars more, but we will not let this setback deter us from our mission to take gaming to the streets. We’re already doing what we can to get the MaGoo back in order and on the road as soon as possible, but the financial impact will certainly be felt.
From our Mobile Gaming Unit—or MGU we stream games to our online audience and interact with the street crowds every weekend right in the hOn behalf of Pixel Reboot, I’m asking for your support in rebuilding our dream. We’ve always prided ourselves in baring the cost of this venture on our own shoulders—in fact, we’ve given away many hundreds of dollars to our viewers in the form of Steam gift cards, and raised thousands more for various charitable causes. We are now hoping that our regular viewers—or anyone who is inspired by our vision—will step up to help us recoup some of the costs inflicted on us by this crime.
We have a number of creative rewards for those who come through for us. Some of which will only be available through this campaign. We promise that by taking part, you will become part of a special circle of close friends. Your generosity will not soon be forgotten. Thank you for your support.
