On the 23rd April 2017, a year after the reveal at Play Expo Blackpool, the ZX Spectrum Next Kickstarter launched at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1835143999/zx-spectrum-next
On the 24th April 2017, the target of £250,000 was reached but it wasn’t going to stop there!
On the same day, the Kickstarter hits the £450,000 stretch goal and RAM and Wifi sockets are added to the mix. A few days later and the ZX Spectrum Next has 2000 backers!
On the 17 May 2017, the Kickstarter funding reaches the £550,000 mark and this gives us the much wanted printed manual. The Facebook group now has 4000 members!
