EDIT: Never mind, I see the splash image on the site there is a mock-up. I look forward to seeing what you've done with the development of the game.
Will edit with more info about game shortly!
1. When and where can we buy it?
2. Is there any gameplay video? I'd like to get a first impression. So, if you or anybody could upload someone playing the first level or so, that would be fine.
3. Is the game's story or maybe the whole manual available online?
2. We're working on a trailer. We had several people want to interview us at PRGE and one guy who is making a video about the game. He too is asking for game play footage so we'll get on that ASAP.
3. Manual coming in a couple weeks.
We appreciate everyone who came out to play the game, it was a true experience and since this is our first NES production that has made it to this level we absolutely appreciate everybody who bothered to even come see us, you all made it entirely worthwhile !
Alternately, if the story is told in the intro of the game, I'll wait for the gameplay video.

Let me tell yinz about Halloween.. In 1985.. The things I saw and creatures I battled. My name is Donny - Donny Johnstown - at least that's what my friends call me... cause I'm Donny... from Johnstown. I just moved here to Possum Hollow and I'm the reason this town is no longer haunted! I saved everyone from the haunts that were destroying this town. This is how it all went down...... I woke in a total panic! I'd overslept cause I was up all night playing the NES. I totally missed the bus and had no way to get to school. And if I didn't get there, I wouldn't be allowed to go to the Halloween Dance after school, which meant no holding hands with Tami... which meant no Tami and Donny sitting in a tree..... That couldn't happen! I had no choice... I'd have to run all the way to school! It would take me for-ev-er but I had to do it. Tami would think I ditched her if I didn't make it to the dance and that just couldn't happen. I had big plans for us! If I could just make it to school by last period, I could sneak into Miss Beluschok's class - that old lady had always been blind as a bat, she'd never know I had been missing. And so off I went... ...all the way through old-man Dunmore's cornfield... Every Halloween we'd take corn from Haunted Harry's field for corning houses. We'd always heard crazy stories about him but never actually saw anyone on the farm. Late at night though we would always hear strange noises coming from the big red barn. ...past the mall... As much as I wanted to, there was no time to stop by the arcade. There was no time for games, this was serious. ...and through the woods... It felt like the school was a million miles away! The woods were dense and there were jagger bushes everywhere that slowed me down but nothing would keep me from that dance. I was getting close... ...finally... My school! but... Something happened here... the place was trashed! Serum Soda Count: 5 Kill Count: 0
I was hoping to get the actual background story, though. You know, the reason why there are monsters and zombies in the first place. (Is this a world like in "Buffy"? Or are the monsters a one-time occurence? Etc.)
Is this story something that's supposed to be unknown until later in the game? Because otherwise, the intro text is really just a teaser and not actually the plot. Good for the game itself when playing it, but not so good when trying to get general information.
If it's not some kind of twist, I was hoping more for a summary like in:
"You are a boy from highschool and due to a magic spell/a curse/whatever, your town is run over by zombies."
Or: "You realize that this town isn't like other towns since monsters and demons are on the loose here."
Or: "Every hundred years, the town is plagued by ghosts."
As you can see, I'm interested in the "nature" of the whole haunting.
This, and seeing the gameplay.
The game is the only recent NES game that really caught my attention. But before I buy it, I need to see something from the game. I need to see what the gameplay looks like.
You don't need to do a trailer. Just get someone to sit in front of a TV and play the first level. Or play it on an emulator and enable the video recording. Whatever.
The game is advertised for a few days now, but the only thing we actually get to see is one single image:

I would be willing to order it. As soon as I see at least a few seconds of gameplay to make sure that this doesn't play and feel like something that I don't like.
(For example, if it turns out that it is a beat em up like "Double Dragon" or "Final Fight" instead of a sidescroller/platformer/jump n run like "Super Mario Bros.", "Mega Man", "Castlevania" or "Ninja Gaiden", then the game wouldn't be for me.)
And I assume putting up at least something would be beneficial for everybody who is interested in the game.
