Rusel DeMaria is attempting to fund a third edition of his book, High Score: The Illustrated History of Electronic Games. The original book is now out of print, but DeMaria has found a publisher interested in an updated edition covering the period of 2000-2011. In an attempt to fund the four-to-six months of research and travel required to bring the book up to date, DeMaria has turned to funding platform Kickstarter, and is offering a rather unique incentive for potential donators. Along with fourteen other industry leaders, Lorne Lanning has agreed to meet and share a meal with backers who donate $250 or more. This is a Limited Reward of five spaces, with only three of those spaces available as of this writing. The date and location of the meetings is to be determined after the project has been funded.
