The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment Kickstarter Campaign

February 23, 2011 -

The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment (The MADE, for short), kicked off a Kickstarter fundraising campaign. The organizers hope to fund the creation of a small "starter museum" in the San Francisco Bay Area to house The MADE's existing collection of works. The fundraising campaign will run until April 18, and already the project is 7 percent funded. With 53 days remaining the project already has 128 backers and has raised $11,722 of its $20,000 Goal.

In order to encourage Kickstarter donations, The MADE will be giving away copies of PC games, donated by Kalypso Media, including 3 signed copies of the newly released Dungeons. Additionally, a signed, sealed copy of Pathways Into Darkness for Power Macintosh is on offer to the top donor. Pathways into Darkness was one of Bungie Studio’s earliest game releases.

"We are thrilled to be able to contribute to this great chronicle of the expansive history of video games," said Mario Kroll, Vice President of Kalypso Media USA. "While comparatively young, the video game industry has evolved very quickly and dramatically, becoming a full-fledged art form. I can think of no better cause to support than The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment, helping all of us remember and honor our inspiration, professional heritage and an industry that has made it possible to do what we truly love."

"This is going to be a long process, so we’re starting small," said Alex Handy. "Our current priorities are securing a safe space near public transit for the creation of this museum. Given a location, we have an almost infinite supply of ideas to realize. We plan to hold classes, talks, demo scene events, 48-hour game development jams, and LAN parties. Though our initial space will be small, a focus on the community will enable us to build an organization that will be able to chronicle the artistry of videogames for generations to come."

The MADE will be exhibiting at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco at the Moscone Center, in booth 2040, March 2, 3, and 4. Interviews with the founders and staff are available upon request.

NeenekoMakes sense to me, and sounds kinda cool. One cool thing about Minecraft is the meta game, you can implement other game types within its mechanics. There are servers out there with plots, an episodic single player one sound kinda cool12/18/2014 - 11:07am
MaskedPixelantehttps://mojang.com/announcing-minecraft-story-mode/ Umm... what?12/18/2014 - 10:24am
NeenekoThat would make sense. Theaters probably can not afford the liability worry or a drop in ticket sales from worried people. Sony on the other hand can take a massive writeoff, and might even be able to bypass distribution contracts for greater profit.12/18/2014 - 10:03am
ConsterNeeneko: I thought they cancelled it because the major cinema franchises were too scared of terrorist attacks to show the film?12/18/2014 - 9:55am
Neeneko@Wonderkarp - there is still a lot of debate regarding if the movie was a motive or not. Unnamed officials say yes, the timeline says no.12/18/2014 - 9:10am
NeenekoSomething does not smell right though, Sony is no stranger to being hacked, so why cancel this film? For that matter, they are still not giving in to hacker's original demands as far as I know.12/18/2014 - 9:06am
PHX Corp@prh99 Not to mention the Dangerous Precedent that sony's hacking scandal just set http://mashable.com/2014/12/17/sony-hackers-precedent/12/18/2014 - 8:25am
Matthew WilsonI hope its released to netflix or amazon12/18/2014 - 12:11am
prh99Basically they've given every tin pot dictator and repressive regime a blue print how to conduct censorship abroad. The hecklers veto wins again. At least when it comes to Sony and the four major theater chains.12/17/2014 - 11:55pm
MaskedPixelante"It's not OUR fault that our game doesn't work, it's YOUR fault for having so many friends."12/17/2014 - 9:48pm
Matthew Wilsonapparently tetris did not work because he has a full friends list12/17/2014 - 9:21pm
WonderkarpSo Sony cancelled the release of the Interview. was it ever confirmed that the Sony hacking was done because of that specific movie?12/17/2014 - 8:54pm
MaskedPixelanteWow, Ubisoft went four for four, I didn't think it was actually possible.12/17/2014 - 8:37pm
MechaTama31Oh, ok, I was mixing up "on Greenlight" and "Greenlit".12/17/2014 - 8:23pm

MaskedPixelantehttp://comicbook.com/blog/2014/08/16/exclusive-original-unaltered-cut-of-star-wars-trilogy-to-be-rele/ Yeah, this'll never happen.12/17/2014 - 5:03pm
NeenekoThey have and exercise control over which games are allowed on their privately controlled 'open forum'. Their endorsement is fairly minimal since it is only 'we do not reject this', but it is still an endorsement of sorts.12/17/2014 - 3:58pm
NeenekoHistorically there have been issues with libraries allowing some groups but not others. Perhaps 'endorsement' is too strong a word, but their editorial control IS a preapproval process, even if the standards are pretty minimal.12/17/2014 - 3:56pm
