2016 Hugo Awards Nomination

In April, 2016, Tingle was nominated for the short story category of the 2016 Hugo Awards for his book "Space Raptor Butt Invasion"[13] (shown below, left), following the alt-right Rabid Puppies[14] campaign's attempt to influence the awards. While Tingle did not win the award, the story was covered by a number of outlets, including The Guardian,[15] Salon,[16] and The Los Angeles Times.[17] In response, Tingle himself nominated video game developer Zoe Quinn to receive the award in his stead should he win,[18] as well as writing the book "Slammed in the Butt by My Hugo Award Nomination"[19] (shown below, right).

Video Game Kickstarter

On October 26th, 2016, Tingle launched a Kickstarter campaign for an adventure game based on his works, titled "Project Tingler",[20] featuring indie game developer Zoe Quinn as lead developer. The campaign went on to receive $85,448, beating it's initial target of $69,420, and aims to be released in 2017 with a Pay-What-You-Want pricing strategy.



Scam Accusations

In July 2018, a report about the Kickstarter campaign was submitted to the site Kickscammed, which outlined how the project failed to meet its delivery date.[24]

On August 30th, Twitter user @kainedamo tweeted a question asking "Chuck, where the fuck is this 85k?" earned in the Kickstarter, to which Tingle replied "i am not making video game and never have been"(shown below).

Chuck Tingle @ChuckTingle what i said is I AM NOT MAKING A VIDEO GAME I HAVE NEVER BEEN MAKING A VIDEO GAME.

In response, Twitter user @Angelheartnight[25] replied with a screenshot from the Kickstarter claiming the Tingle was involved in the project (shown below).


Is Chuck Tingle actually involved? Yes! After the tweets Chuck and Zoe exchanged in the story, they kept in touch via DMs for the following months. This is also how Chuck sent Zoe as his official representative to the Hugo Awards to prove love is real https://boingboing.net/2016/05/06/weird-p----author-who-was-drag.html They continue to go back and forth about game stuff today!

That day, a post titled "Updates and Apologies" was published for backers of the Kickstarter project. Meanwhile, Zoe Quinn tweeted a link to the Kickstarter update, along with a message claiming that the game was delayed because she "ran out of money" and "had to get day job(s)" (shown below).[26]


Zoe "Haute Topic" Quinn @UnburntWitch Tl;dr: still working on it, just slower because I ran out of money a long time ago and had to get day job(s). also I have been working on ways to bring on some assistance with finishing it. also don't yell at Chuck about it - shipping the game is on me.

Also on August 30th, the update was tweeted by Twitter user @mombot.[23] In the coming days, videos about the accusations were posted by YouTubers The Quartering and Vee (shown below). Additionally, the blog One Angry Gamer published an article about the controversy titled "Backers Hound Chuck Tingle, Zoe Quinn for Answers Regarding Delayed $85,000 Kickstarter Project."
