More NES Kickstarters

KickstarterKickstarterVia Kickstarter: Family Picross and Alfonzo's Arctic Adventure. Both are campaigns for NES cartridges. The games themselves are finished and the campaigns are both fully funded, but if you need more NES in your life this is a way to get it. Games start at about $25 for cartridges, but prices vary from campaign to campaign.

The official Kickstarter Twitter posted shots of a Laptor (or that was a typo) as well as a Triceradogos. No pre-orders yet on those, but a few places are already sold out of pre-orders on Grachiosaurus and Kuwaga.

New GameBoy Game - Dino's Offline Adventure (Cartridge Incoming)

GameBoyDino's Offline AdventureA New GameBoy Game (with cartridge coming later): Dino's Offline Adventure.

The ROM is up now as "pay what you want" but a physical cartridge is coming later. The sticker design looks pretty good, and the graphics look like something you played on your dad's Macintosh in 1986. There's an in-browser emulator if you care to try it, and it's worth a look just to see what people are doing. Along with Tobu Tobu Girl and Sheep It Up, there aren't a heck of a lot of new cartridges being made with wholly new games. Mostly all we get are bootlegs of existing games, so new games on actual media tend to be quite exciting.

If you're making any new games on old hardware with plans for a cartridge release, please let us know. Also please pester Onell Design to do a Pheyden game. Please and thank you.

New GameBoy Gadget - Use a GameBoy as PC/Pi/GameCube/Wii Controller

GameBoyAdaptableIf you've ever wanted to use your GameBoy (regular, pocket, color, or advance) as a wireless controller on another system this is your lucky week. Some guy has a Wireless Gameboy Controller (For PC/RPi, Gamecube or Wii) - it's a cartridge that interfaces with a dongle (sold separately) and presumably more drivers could be coming.

This lets you use a GameBoy with a GameBoy Player (on GameCube) like a WaveBird. It doesn't seem to support L or R shoulder buttons yet though, so maybe you want to wait for the next revision - but it's a heck of a start.

A full year is $240, 6 random drops are $130, and a random figure is $25.

New NES Game - Micro Mages Pre-Orders

NintendoMicro MagesIf you missed the Kickstarter, there's Indiegogo: Micro Mages: A new game for the NES.

You can buy the ROM - seriously, people paying for a ROM, amazing - or the boxed game, too. I grabbed the boxed game on the Kickstarter, and while it's not cheap at US $48, that's not too far off from what most NES games cost in the 1980s and 1990s. Factor in inflation, and it's probably fair - granted, games have changed a lot since then. But I digress. Take a look at this one.

Game Boy Advance SP DMG-Form Factor Shell

GameBoyShellVia Thingiverse: Gameboy Advance SP Enclosure. There are a few of these around, but I hadn't seen them before - so now I'm sharing them here. This one lets you stuff the guts of a GBA SP into a shell that's similar to that of a Game Boy Pocket. It does not have RL buttons, but if you want something that looks or feels like the pre-2000s Game Boy, this is it.

A few other makes and models are on Thingiverse, and to my knowledge nobody is pumping these out from molds in China yet. I'd buy one if there was one, though.

GBA Consolizer - Adds HDMI, Super NES Controller Ports to a GBA

GameBoy367 ConsolizerVia RetroRGB: GBA Consolizer: An HDMI 720p GBA Kit. This is a new add-on kit that requires some soldering and some work, and it ain't cheap - but it does some cool things. You have to mod a donor GBA, but as a result you get a few graphical features including an HDMI-out for your TV and a Super NES controller port.

As is the style of our time, add-ons for this add-on are already being made with a new console casing for the unit available via 3-D printing. The kit itself is currently presold out of its current run, and it's also somewhat expensive - but appears to be the best way to play games from this system until Nintendo or someone comes up with a mod-free gizmo later. This will never happen.

Vectrex Mini Prototype Found, Working

Video GamesVectorifficVia Twitter: IT'S ALIIIIVE! We dug a little deeper into the Mini Vectrex console this weekend and we're happy to report it is now back to working order! Check out this video of the console in action!.

The GCE/Milton Bradley game console has a built-in vector monitor and a controller that tucks neatly under the 9-inch screen. The mini version was not widely known about - heck, I'd never heard of it - and the original console is pretty scarce as it is. Take a look!

GlyosNew StuffVia the Glyos News Dump: Glyos Onell Design October 25 2018 Drop Menu.

Ninja surprise! Hand, foot, eyes (snake), teenage mutant, and variants thereof are up for grabs still. As is the mysterious Pheytooth. There's no picture, we assume the Onell Design crew must have hit a snag.
