pcenginefx.com has quite a few Virtual Boy fans

the users over there are very helpful when trying to find protos or donate for them :)

I'll shoot some videos and take some screenshots. Is there any part of the game that's especially gawk-worthy?

Definitely tell about what you get in the $100 or $200 editions. Talk about Faceball: Remastered. Say how it's probably one of the smoothest versions. Talk about the 3D effects(naturally), and tell how the enemies are all different than previous versions. :)

No. Its about selling something to people you want support from. Itīs only natural that they want and should receive a little more info. Make a short interview, a making-of, drawings, the process of making it, etcblabla...be creative - thats the marketing part of it.

Make a sensation of it (because it is one) - how many NEW games for dead consoles can be bought today?
Thatīs definitely a USP if you ask me...

just my 2cents.

Kickstarter comes to mind, but of course there is the whole IP issue...

IndieGoGo might be more suited to this case than Kickstarter -- you can pretty much say "This is just to donate as a thank you for doing the legwork in getting the ROM." and not have any rewards attached to it. You could *probably* coordinate the project with purchasing the carts, but I feel it'd be better to keep them separate and just let people either donate or buy through Uncle Tusk.

As for me, I'm in for the $200 donator's copy. It'll just be too cool not to have. :)

As for what ROM on what cart I'd be interested in, personally... I have no idea right now, haha. I'm torn. :p

If you want to own a physical, genuine copy of the original Faceball prototype, get that one.


If you want to own a better and more finished game, get Faceball: Remastered.

Well, yeah... but that's where I'm torn. Obvious solution: pay for both! (and eat ramen for a month!)
