Nostalgia Nerd is creating Retro Hardware & Gaming Videos

Hi there, I'm Nostalgia Nerd (aka Peter Leigh) and I'm driven by nostalgic memories of computers and games gone by. So much so, that I packed in my traditional job and decided to make videos every single week on Youtube. Mainly these videos are seeded by my personal memories, and include experimentation and in depth documentaries about hardware, software and games. But my passion extends to understanding the backgrounds and workings of these wonderful machines and documenting them the best I can, for all to enjoy, both present and future.

I also play games throughout the week (Twitch & Youtube), commentate on old gaming shows and do anything else I feel inspired to do.

These videos do take a lot of time and a lot of work to make, so if you wish to support me, it is hugely appreciated. The channel (and indeed, my life)  just wouldn't be possible without it. Your contributions allow me to spend more time working on videos every week, to create more in depth, varied and generally better content, and that's truly what I'm passionate about.

In return, I offer various "bribes", as shown on the right and endless gratitude from the very pit of my nostalgia filled heart. 

All supporters receive exclusive videos and advert free early access.

I've tried to offer as many varied incentives that I can to make my Patreon channel a real community in itself. I like to post and interact here as often as I can.

Examples;

$20+ Supporters get the Nostalgia Nerd T-Shirt along with items sent in the post throughout the year.



$40+ Supporters get the regular Nostalgia/Retro box filled with goodies...



Please take a moment to look at the rewards to the right, and see if anything takes your fancy. 

Thanks for reading, thanks for watching, and most of all, thanks for supporting what I do!

THE BIG BOX. All Previous rewards, but you'll receive a BIGGER Nostalgia Box that will/may also contain;
  • Video scripts I've printed, annotated, or used.
  • Books or resource materials I've used.
  • Things I reviewed.
  • Etc

Essentially, one off resources and things I've used to make videos in the last month or so.


Hence, why there's only ONE.

Includes Discord rewards
Executive Producer
$249 or more per month 0 of 1 patrons
I like to make videos that grab my excitement at a given moment, but if you are crazy for me to make a particular video, then this tier will open my mind enough to make it so (subject to my approval and having the resources for it - which I'll do before Patreon takes your payment). 


The video will be feature length, but it has to be relevant to the channel.  e.g. a particular piece of hardware, software package, part of history, etc... we'll also get to discuss ideas & anything you'd like to see included in the feature.


Your contribution will also help towards any hardware, etc, required for filming.


You'll be credited up front as the executive producer on the video, in whatever form you see fit, and receive a copy on DVD in the post (I'll even make a cover for the case ;)).


(PS! If you're in no hurry, I'm always open to suggestions.... there's even a suggestions inbox (see previous rewards).


Also includes previous rewards (excluding "There can be ONLY ONE").

Includes Discord rewards
Ridiculous Day of Expense
$501 or more per month 0 of 1 patrons
Let me be clear. I don't expect anyone to claim this, and it's more here because....why the hell not! But I do love a day out (at the computer museum).


So, you get ALL previous rewards (excluding ONLY ONE).


  • I'll hand over your Nostalgia Box in person at the Centre for Computing History in Cambridge, UK.
  • I'll also present you with a signed retro console/computer (working, of course) in an Official Nostalgia Nerd bag.
  • I'll meet you there (you'll have to transport yourself), and spend the day with you at the museum (on a mutually agreed date).
  • Assuming you want the "executive producer of an upcoming video" reward, we can then discuss what feature length video you want made (not compulsory).


You can have unlimited discussion, unlimited selfies (you won't be forced into this), unlimited coffee and even snacks (my treat!) and I'll even buy your entrance ticket (see, I'm so generous).


I'll even film various parts of our splendid day for incorporation in an upcoming video.


Afterwards, we can then go our separate ways when the day is done. Me richer, you, probably disappointed at your meeting with me. Splendid.

Goals
$1,086 – reached! per month
The dream. This will probably fulfil my goal of being about to do this full time and put my all into videos.

Yes, we are back at x086, but with an added ONE... Woah! This will warrant a video of un-surpassing dimensions and parallels. Yet to be decided but will probably involve me making my own computer and flying it to Antartica, to test it's operation in extreme temperatures (tbc). Plus I'll probably arrange a party and invite you all, somewhere... Cambridge maybe?
