Exciting news came early in 2018, as Mr Biffo announced ambitious plans for a Digitiser YouTube series. Billed as proper retro gaming telly infused with the classic Digi spirit, as soon as the Kickstarter opened to fund it, Biffo was inundated with support in the form of financial pledges, offers of help, and just general words of encouragement.
When the campaign closed at the beginning of April, it had raised a stunning total of £44,526 in pledges - more than six times the target amount - from more than 1,000 eager supporters.
