Many of you have been following us since the days of Voldemort Towers, through the rise and fall of the ManaTank, and onto the greener pastures of what is now Factory Sealed. This venture started as nothing more than a way to pass the time, but quickly became an obsession among friends looking to share their love of retro games with anyone willing to listen.

Amazingly, listen you did! It baffles us every single day as to why so many of you love to hear us tell the craziest stories we can muster, but we can't tell you how grateful we are that you all tune in every single week.

There's a whole load of video game podcasts on the market, but what we wanted out of FS was to just more than drone on about games in a monotone voice. Instead, we talk about everything from the gaming world and beyond, with occasional monotone/slapstick/incomprehensible Geordie voices.

The show will always go on and it will always be free. Period. However, we have ambitions to improve the show and expand further upon what we can do every week. What does that mean? Well, it can mean anything from Jess actually managing to finish games, to us giving you lovely people stuff for free as part of regular giveaways.

Any contribution to the Factory Sealed cause will go towards improving the show and rewards for our listeners. With regular donations from you, our fans, we can cover the hosting of our website and podcast, plus any bandwidth costs we might run into. We can also start developing new things, including website improvements, a Factory Sealed app, Tshirts, loot boxes and - most importantly - start running regular giveaways of both older and newer games!

To anyone who donates, regardless of the amount, we would like to thank you sincerely. You're helping to make Factory Sealed the best it can be and are officially an awesome, awesome person.

From the bottom of our nostalgic hearts to the tips of our Nintendo-calloused thumbs, thank you!

Thanks so much for your support! As a way to say thank you, we are going to pull the curtain back  on the show and give you a taste of how we prepare to record each week. Each week you will get an exclusive unedited version of the show that includes the mindless meandering we pretend to qualify as preparation leading up to show time. We call it Factory Sealed Unwrapped!

We've got the face for podcasting! Want to see? At this point we will put on just enough clothing to be deemed decent and point some cameras in our direction for your viewing pleasure during our live streamed shows.
