After Effects [...] and he completely wrecked his PC in the process
I know what this feels like! After Effects is awesome, but veeeery hungry once your project grows. My old pc didn't like the situation.

Congrats on going past 1k backers!

The design of the videos and the kickstarter page itself is very slick!
And I like the idea of mirroring and shifting background block rows while storing the levels. Thanks for sharing!

The FAQ claims that Rainworrior's Antoine's building the cartridges? Is he the only one who will build all the carts? Because currently it looks like the kickstarter can attract over 2000 supporters easily... :shock:

The 'o' in there makes me think there's some mirror-universe Rainwario out there building cartridges. ;)

@miau

Oh well, just wanted to see it in action out of curiosity. Will the digital version be available later in any other way? It's not that 8$ is a lot, more that I do not have any way to pay online these days. In Japan, we are a paper society even though people want to think otherwise. Never used a credit card, can buy online and ask to pay at the convenience store (I'm not joking here). There is some cashless thing that work only in Japan but rarely use them (edy, suica, sugoca etc).

I may be interested later once I find how to pay for it.

Yes, we discussed with him at length how much he can (and wants to) handle. We also set what we think is a generous (for him and us) estimated date of delivery on the rewards. On the "2nd batch" of rewards that is now available, we set an even later date, just in case.

I'd say a Famicom version is not out of the question, but there probably won't be one anytime soon.

Except for the Japanese market, the demand may be low so for now it's not a priority. I'm just one of those "odd-case" that don't have a nes anymore (should have never sold it before moving ^^;;)

This looks and sounds amazing. It is 4 player right? Then that is an extra bonus. Seems like a great party game. Also there seems to be a LOT of fine details and polish that I really appreciate.
