Hey everyone,

as some of you already know I'm doing my own limited run for the English version of Space Invaders. I created exactly 10 of these.
5 are already pre-ordered by Patreons and supporters. I'm keeping one for myself and might put one on eBay (not sure about that yet). So there are only 3-4 left. I have another 10 empty carts and could potentially make more. However, I think I would rather do another game... we will see.

The release includes:
- A custom made, numbered box
- The game cart (English version). The precaution screen is removed and says thunderstruck edition
- Custom label on the game cart
- A protector case
- White insert (modified Game Boy insert)
- You can choose a unique greeting message which I will put on the first screen (an example is attached). I can even put a picture there as long as it's not too complex

The price is 100$ + shipping (insured and tracked). Please be aware that I'm shipping from Germany. Shipping to the US is about 15$ (you can check prices here: https://www.dhl.de/de/privatkunden/pak ... entEditorProductSelection).

All money earned will go towards future projects of mine. So, if you want to support me you can feel free to pay a little more and be sure the money is used for the good of this community. You can also support me on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/thunderstruckProjects

If you want one please send me a PM. I decided to prioritize active community users over new members. Meaning that someone like speedyink will get one for the regular price rather then a "one post user" who wants to give me 500$.

I will also make a post somewhen this month detailing how I made this run. Meaning, I will show how to make boxes, labels, inserts and so on. This will hopefully spark more developer-driven runs like this one.

Cheers
thunderstruck

Been looking into doing some VB dev myself lately (versus my usual quiet lurker status XD ) Was wondering what game board hardware you end up using when producing these? I see a few guys like Mellot have designed their own boards. Did you design your own or is there someone you've found to be trustworthy in this regard?

I bought 20 carts from Kevin Mellot.

Ooh, now I feel obligated to get one!

I'm not a developer but I was toying with the idea of making a run of games..I have a programmer. My thought was to make an affordable Hyper Fighting CIB available, hopefully curb some of the scalping on ebay.
Just a thought, as I'm sure I'm not the only one thinking of doing one of those. My main drive was to keep it affordable/ more in line with other VB CIBs

All of them are reserved. I might make another 4-5 if enough people want one. You will have to wait a couple of weeks though.

I got the greeting messages from almost everybody. Will prepare the ROMs on the weekend and make everything ready to be sent out. Will send inform everyone where to send the money afterwards.

I have a couple of people asking for copies. It only makes sense to produce more if at least 3 more want one. That's the last chance to get one. There won't be any after those.
