Hi everyone! We just launched The Cursed Knight Kickstarter campaign two days ago and I wanted yo share it with you all. The Cursed Knight is 100% finished and works on the real Sega Megadrive/Genesis console! We are running this crowdfunding campaign in order to raise funds for physical production and offer collector limited editions that won't be available once the campaign is over. Do you like platform and shoot'em up games? Do you like challenging games? Do you like retrogaming? And most importantly, do you like the Megadrive/Genesis? Then The Cursed Knight is for you! Enter the weird world of The Cursed Knight and fight your way through various levels to finally meet the Cube god. Look for secret items, fight your enemies to the rhythm of an energic soundtrack, stay alert and go through the most dangerous areas manipulating gravity. Features 5 unique worlds 10 crazy levels 10 bosses Crazy Genesis visual effects A password system
So I backed this homebrew project at the top tier, of which there were only 5 spots available: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/langel/guntner It's a new shmup for the NES, and the tier I backed it at allows me to help design some elements of the game; per the description: Help Design an Element of GunTneR!! Help steer development! Same as above (cart/stickers/sleeve) and collaborate with me on an enemy, a boss, or power up! You might be thinking "add the Sage!" and I totally went there in my head, too. But I don't think it's honestly a thematic fit, and there are plenty of other places where the Sage could totally fit in the future, so shelve that one for now. That's where you come in though - I'd love to get some ideas spit-balled on here to help me come up with something to propose. My initial idea was to suggest a powerup which would be a second "support" ship like your typical "Addition" that you get in some shimps, in the likeness of a literal glove, which provides more firepower for your ship. Another idea was a Glove Shield - Basically a powerup which can block some amount of shots before dissipating, it'd be again a literal glove which floats in front of your ship and blocks shots. Just some starter ideas, with a clear starting point of "My username is Gloves, lol". Maybe we can get more creative than that. Lemme know your thoughts/ideas!
Don't know if anyone here would be interested in this but there is a cool N64 clone system in Kickstarter set to ship at the end of the month. I'm very iffy on clone consoles as they always seem to be very flimsy. But being a huge N64 fan with no real HD alternatives for the console this might seriously be worth considering. It already reached the goal but if you wanted one here is the link:
It took me long enough to get over here. I've been mourning the NA shift, but I'm loving it here at VGS. Clean and refreshing. So anyways, name is Steve DeLuca and I am TotalRadNES. I created an NES controller with the D-Pad on the Right, called the Goofy Foot. My new project, which is ending within a few hours on Kickstarter, is an MP3 NES Cart. A full length album, mp3 audio, which plays through the NES. Check it out, only the second MP3 NES cart released. Ends 2/19 7:59am PST LE is only $75 during the KS after is goes up to $95 and the RE will be launched at $75 I also help out with the Classic Tetris World Championship. I've started and host the CTWC Desert Qualifier (GameOn Expo), West Coast Qualifier (Retro City Fest), as well as the SoCal Qualifier happening for the first time March 27-29 at the SoCal Retro Gaming Expo. I also host regular stream, Tetris Talk with TotalRadNES on Twitch Tues & Thurs 8pm PST. It's great to be apart of a blossoming community again, CHEERS!, -Steve DeLuca http://www.totalradnes.com/ I forgot to mention I write for the Old School Gamer Magazine. Boom Tetris!
