Whoever said that the power of masses wouldn’t be enough for anything, here’s living proof that it actually works. Valve CEO, Gabe Newell had apparently replied with this:
The English language lacks the words to express the level of excitement Erik and I feel that you and your friends have pulled this off. Give us some time to organize our affairs, as we are trying to ship a product, and then we’ll let you know the time and date of our arrival. Give our best to Robin’s mother, as she is apparently a neighbor of yours.
Gabe & Erik
Guess Joe is going to be one happy guy!
After pulling off an impressive $3,089.45 USD in total from the fund raising, Gabe Newell has finally replied that they are going to be flying over to Joe to “playtest” his L4D Campaign that he had been working on for so much.
It has been a long journey (not really) but congratulations to Joe either way for successfully pulling this off! If you’re interested int0 the whole incident that eventually led up to the fund raising activity, you can find more information located at this link.
Really, great job! Can’t wait to see how the photos (or videos) will turn out as when Gabe and Erik playtests Joe’s campaign…
