VGH Interview: National Videogame Museum co-founder Joe Santulli

The idea of a video game museum was first planted when he and future co-founders were encouraged by videogame convention-goers to find a permanent home for their mobile videogame museum exhibit. Find great games at wowtbcgold including World of Warcraft  the most popular ones.

When the crowd-funding website Kickstarter appeared, the founders said they knew it was the perfect way to fund the museum. Over the years items brought out from their massive personal collections were starting to become worse for wear from poor transportation and storage.

Through a Kickstarter campaign $50,000 was raised in 2011, which funded better storage and moving materials to cart exhibits to shows.

As a result they were able to participate in many more exhibitions annually.

Their big break came in 2012, when the founders met Randy Pitchford of Gearbox Software, who Santulli credits for getting the museum its home. Santulli said they and Pitchford were on the same wavelength when it came to the museum and they formed the “perfect partnership.”

Join us for this very special episode where Paul interviews one of the co-founders of the National Videogame Museum in Frisco, TX.
