"When I initially had the idea to kickstart my Commodore 64 book I was very lucky to be put in touch with Tim Nicholls who had successfully done the same thing with his Artcade book.

5 x Campaigns successfully funded, over £750,000 raised
Tim's advice was invaluable and he talked very highly about how GamesYouLoved had supported him throughout his campaign and helped loads with promotion - getting the word out there.
I quickly got in touch with GamesYouLoved.
Running a Kickstarter campaign can be very lonely, so to have a partner by your side for the ups and downs was hugely important and beneficial. Also a huge bonus was their reach on social media. Regular tweets to 92,000+ Twitter followers and posts to their 35,000+ Facebook friends made a HUGE impact on the success of my campaign.
The confidence that working with them gave me was invaluable. There is no way the C64 book would have reached £35k funding if it not for the support of GamesYouLoved. Then when my next Kickstarter campaign was confirmed I didn't think twice about working with GamesYouLoved again.
This time the book was about the Amiga computer and I worked with GamesYouLoved closer than ever. We worked out a month's worth of marketing activity and worked in tandem daily to promote the campaign as best as we could.
They would nudge me when they felt it was time for a new pledge or some new design which kept the momentum in the campaign. We ended up raising £129k . We then went on to fund the NES book and raised £190K - and finally in 2017 we worked together closely for the SNES book and raised £224K - and are now the most successful gaming books on Kickstarter, even beating books about industry giants SEGA and Nintendo. A huge achievement.
That total would no way of been achievable without GamesYouLoved."

"The experience of working with Chris and the GamesYouLoved team was incredible. They're a diligent bunch ready to come up with great ideas on how to get a message off the ground, thanks to their full immersion into the retro gaming scene.
It's refreshing to work with people who understand the intricacies of the ecosystem you're serving, whose efforts are fully in tune with your audience. The Spectrum Next Kickstarter, a hugely successful crowdfunding campaign, would not have happened without these folks."
The first project exceeded expectations with a record retro gaming breaking £723,390 raised.
Our 2nd campaign in 2020 went even further, close to hitting two million pounds - and smashed the previous record with an oustanding funding total of £1,847,106

We spoke to a few key figures in the retrogaming community and GamesYouLoved was very highly regarded.
When we got in touch it was immediately clear that fundamentally they were a group of true retrogaming enthusiasts. They were incredibly passionate and only to happy to help spread the word.
GamesYouLoved have built up a great deal of experience helping with retrogaming Kickstarter campaigns, so their expertise is very valuable.They are able to help you reach out to like-minded retrogamers and really add a great deal of energy and collective enthusiasm to put the wind in your sails.
Not only did GamesYouLoved help to promote our campaign to their followers, they were also very well connected and able to put us in touch with key figures who were only to happy to help to.
Through their connections and activities they are able to add all sorts of additional value, such as the footage they filmed of the Hewson talk at Play Expo 2013 which they we very generous to provide.
We'd definitely recommend GamesYouLoved to other Kickstarters and brands in the retrogaming space.
They have the connections, the followers, the reputation and above all else they are true fans through and through."

"GamesYouLoved not only have a great love for the C64 but also a great understanding of why so many others love it as well.
GamesYouLoved - they'll help spread the word to retro games lovers who perhaps haven't been alerted by other channels.
GamesYouLoved team provided lot's of interaction on social media and well thought-through Tweets and posts relating to the Reformation Kickstarter as well as running a competition to win a copy of Reformation.
I'd recommend GamesYouLoved to other brands for their promotional skills because they know the retro gaming market and they care about it."
Nickolaus Mueller - HD Retrovision / www.hdretrovision.com
"We worked with GamesYouLoved because of the retro gaming audience that they are able to reach.
Their followers are exactly the type of people we wanted to reach with our range of retro gaming component cables.
GamesYouLoved helped us reach far more people than we would have been able to on our own.
They were especially helpful in spreading the word on Twitter and Facebook where they have a huge following, and really connected us with the retro gaming community outside of the U.S. because they are a global brand.
GamesYouLoved put out their own Tweets and Facebook posts to promote us as well as retweeting targeted posts of our own. In addition, they provided helpful networking tips as the campaign went forward and connected us to other people they worked with across brands and the community.
"If you have a cool retro product that you want to promote to an audience that loves old video games, GamesYouLoved should be the first place you look to. They have the reach you're looking for and will help you out along the way."
