But seriously

Loyal blog folk: I have a confession to make.

It's not a joke.

We had to wait until today to officially be able to say something about it, but yeah, Marble Hornets: Season 1 will be available soon. No exact date has been set just yet, but it will be very very soon.

Here's the lowdown:



MARBLE HORNETS: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON
--------------------------------------------------------
-Two discs!
-Includes Introduction, Entries 1-26 and their respective totheark responses.
-Commentary by me, Joseph (Alex), and Tim.
-Behind the scenes funstuff like bloopers and Tim being a constant, hilarious distraction.
-The tweets/twitpics
-Bios
-Festival trailer
--------------------------------------------------------


A preemptive mini-FAQ:

How much will it cost?
-$11.95 +S&H

Is the DVD region free?
-Yes!

Where do I buy it?
-We'll let you know as soon as it's available.

WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS MARBLE HORNETS IS RUINED IF YOU SELL IT FOR MONIES YOU GREEDY SLOTH ALSO MY IMMERSION IS RUINED EVERYTHING YOU SAY IS A LIE
-I'm not forcing you to buy anything. If you want to help fund both MH and future productions, this is the perfect way to do so. Remember: it's free for you to watch on Youtube, but it's not free for us to make.

Is this an April Fool's Day prank?
-Isn't it bad form to pull an April Fool's prank when it's not even April Fool's Day? Think about it.

Did you make the cover art?
-Sure didn't. It was put together by a few people, but mostly by wonderful graphic designer Terry Lynn Massey, a big contributor over at Unfiction. She also made this amazing poster and this sweet ass video.


For like the hundredth time, big thanks to ALL of you for continuing to support us, whether you buy a DVD or not. None of this would be possible if we didn't have loyal people like you watching. Stay tuned!

  6. I love this, assuming it's true (which I'm going to assume it is, partly because I want it to be). However, one thing to point out:

    "Is this an April Fool's Day prank?
    -Isn't it bad form to pull an April Fool's prank when it's not even April Fool's Day? Think about it."

    Not necessarily. As I said over on Unfuction forums, websites/etc do their April Fools jokes early, and just reveal that it was a joke after midday on April 1, or the next day; magazines start even earlier, a month or more in advance.

  7. The people who said it was an April Fool's joke clearly think that April Fool's is on March 30th.

    So excited for this!

  8. Uh, yeah, I don't think I've ever seen a website do an April Fools' joke in March. Magazines do it all the time because they're not updated in realtime, but it's bad form for just about everything else. >_>

    Where will the DVD be sold? Amazon, a smaller site, or a custom marblehornets.com or something? What kind of shipping options will be available?

  10. i can't wait. This is awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I am so buying this. You guys are awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I've seen plenty of websites do afd jokes early, only by a day or two, but still... Mod the Sims, for one, and some gaming news sites.

    ReplyDelete
  13. i admit i was weary about the timing, but i am so excite right now -w- buying this as soon as i possibly can~

    honestly, i'm glad you're doing this, and not only for the obvious reasons i'd have as a fan. as much hard work and dedication as you've all put into this, i think it's great that you're going to get at least a little something out of it. even if all the money generated just goes into funding other projects, it's better than knowing you have to pull the money out of your pocket to entertain us

    tl;dr: haters gon' hate, so don't worry about the money thing =P can't wait for more details

    ReplyDelete
  17. Will glady be buying this to support you guys with MH and future series. Love MH and im sure ill love whatever you guys do next. Maybe a full Let's Play series with all three of you? Lol

    ReplyDelete
  18. For the record, I don't know if anyone really assumes this from my last couple posts (particularly hoping Troy & co don't think I think that way), I'm not saying 'this is an April Fools joke, go away and pretend it never happened' or anything. What I am saying is 'I do believe it's true, and am glad for it if I'm right, but I'm a bit skeptical at the same time, because I've seen sites do their jokes a day or two early, but I sincerely believe, overall, that this is a real announcement, and hope I'm right'.

  19. While I do like the idea of a Marble Hornets DVD, I think it was so much better when it was just a thing on YouTube. It makes it seem so real...

    You guys should make Marble Hornets merchendise. Masky Masks, little Slendy dolls, shirts with the mark on it... ^___^

    ReplyDelete
  20. Also, I will be buying, if it's available up in the Great White North (Canada, eh? but for the record - not as white up here as most Americans seem to think ;) ).

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh hell yes. Do want.

    You guys will be rich after this, and won't have to say that you're broke any more.

    ReplyDelete

  31. I'll be getting two copies. One for myself, and one to loan out to friends.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Question: will the "behind-the-scenes" feature include things like how you put your videos together or made the Operator?

    ReplyDelete
  33. I wonder how the transitions between vids will be dealt with...

    ReplyDelete
  34. i'm also wondering how the transitions will be. more specifically, i'm wondering how they're going to keep everything linear, or if they will. will the entry play, then show the twitter feeds and tta vids that go after it...??

    guess i'll find out X3

    ReplyDelete
  35. "Release date = April 1st"
    Just kidding . . . would be hilarious/awesome though!

    ReplyDelete
  36. It is required that I have this DVD. I will pay 3x that price if it means pre ordering it so I can have a guaranteed copy. It is almost essential to my existence.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Hell yeah son! I'll be getting this

    ReplyDelete
  38. And I would be all over some MH merchandise too. Tshirts... I want a Masky Plushie!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Anything else come with a pre-order?

    ReplyDelete
  40. I wonder how you'll do the Twitter updates? Blank text?

  49. Need to know:

    Has the DVD got subtitles in any language?
    If it don't, seems impossible to me sharing my Marble Hornets addiction with my friends :D.

    ReplyDelete
  50. but, there was this one dvd online that had 1-27 for $15, didnt buy, didnt think it was real

    ReplyDelete
  51. Bought two seasons dvds and it never came, it had been three weeks and I have try to contact the seller and never receive a response. What a scam, Marble Hornets is a F**KEN SCAMMER.
