Original Post

This is the official announcement for the release of Bound High complete with box and manual like it always should have been.

Together with Mindstorm and Bigmak we have been able to assemble an all star team to get this together.

Couple of notes.

There will be an original 50.
The plan is to make 100 of these total. If there’s enough demand we will continue to make them. But once 100 sell we’ll need a bunch more to do another batch!

If you have already paid and/or agreed to pay for the box and manual, you can still receive the box and manual. Or you can use the money you paid to put towards a Complete in box version.

What you get.
Box, manual, cartridge with label, inlay, and i believe inserts (bigmak?)

These will ship out in roughly 2-3 weeks

The price of the game, shipping included will be

US price $71 USD
International price $75 USD

We’ll be staring on our second release, Space Pinball. We look forward to doing lots of these. And other releases. So, get your butts in gear game designers!

The first 20-30 carts will be in my hand soon. So, the first 20-30 people to pay will get there’s in the order received.

This list is the initial list I have for people that have paid or have requested they be added to the list for box and manual only. These guys/gals get first dibs.

Since I cannot update this original thread I’ll be keeping track on my own and on Nintendo age at this thread. This is the official release thread! If you’re on this list and have paid and I have forgotten, please let me know.

http://www.nintendoage.com/forum/messageview.cfm?catid=6&threadid=86917

If you’ve paid 25 or 30, just subtract that from the price and that’s what you owe.

Please contact me via PM or post in this thread to be added to the list. The sooner you pay the sooner your game will go out and the higher on the list you will be!

Thanks a bunch. Attached is the box image. The rest will look just as amazing!

Hello,
I already have Bound High! and am only interested in the box, manual, inlay, and inserts, is that possible? What would you ask for that?

How do you plan on shipping? What packaging materials are you going to use?

great to see this being done. i already have a game and box, but would like to get a manual to complete my set. what does the manual consist of? how many pages is it and could you make the file available for those able to print it themselves?

the box art has obviousy been made public, it would befit the spirit of the vb community to release the manual in the same way as whoever made the box art.

So excited for Bound High! I’m so in!

2 complete for me please.

You’re more than welcome to buy the box and manual. If you’d like to preorder that would be preferred. They will be shipped flat in a cardboard mailer. Very secure. As far as the inlays and inserts that will currently only be available if you buy the Complete game.

You’re more than welcome to purchase the manual only for 12 dollars plus shipping from my website in a few weeks. The manual is 12 pages. It is an updated version of the one you can get from here with lots of fixes to it. The front and back cover are completely redone to fit with the VB style more.

The box itself is completely redone minus the front graphic. The front graphic will match the label you currently have, but the background of everything is as close as humanly possibly to the actual VB style as compared to the other one available for download here. You can see the box above.

Hope that helps!

Put me on as #23! A bound high cartridge would be great so I can put other games on my flashboy for once 😛

I would take the 12# then. I´d like to order the complete set for 75 dollars. 🙂 Thanks

Hi shenmueso,

You can find the original instruction booklet images to print here:

You can find “cleaned-up” images of the instruction booklet to print here:

I’ll take #24, and I’m sending payment ASAP.

Thanks to all involved, I’m really looking forward to all of your future releases.

Put me down for a box and manual, please! Just let me know where to send money to.

Been waiting for this for close to a year. Exciting that it’s finally happening!! Bravo, folks! 🙂

I already have the cartridge with Bound High on it, I would very much like the new sticker for it with the combo I asked for. Is that possible?

I would like the same. Please include a new sticker as part of my combo that I already paid for. I can even send some additional money for it if need be.

This is all a little confusing, so I’ll throw this question out:

I already have 2 copies of the game itself… how much would a box and manual set be?

Uncle Tusker put the prices here:

http://www.planetvb.com/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?post_id=20042#forumpost20042

The Box and Manual combo: $25
Box only: $15
Manual Only: $12

These prices include shipping to the USA. If you live somewhere else in the world, there will be an additional shipping charge.

If you post on this thread saying you want to purchase something from him, though, he will contact you via PM and let you know his PayPal address and how much to send. It would be better just to send him a PM directly, though, instead of having him contact you about it from reading the thread. I know all this because I’ve already made my pre-order with him.

I also had already paid for box and manual.

it does help, thanks. So you’re basically providing a service for putting together a package made from updates of other peoples work and you dont want to release your updated files for download. k. got it.

tho i must say, i dont see any dif between the above box art and the one i got months ago, did you say that one is the final design?
hey, i don’t mind you makin a bit o moolah off of the effort, it’s a great service for those who dont have the ability to make one up themselves.

perhaps i’ve got my rose tinted open source goggles on. i do apologise. ^_^

Wow, shenmueso. I see nothing but negativity coming from your last post. Seriously, if you want a new box and manual, order one from him. If you don’t, then don’t. It’s that simple. There’s no need to make comments like that here.

If you can’t see the differences between UncleTusker’s design and the original box design, then your rose-tinted open source goggles must be very fogged up indeed.

I’m agree with Mawa ,I paid for box and manual too . If it’s possible , I’ll get a new sticker

negative would imply a biased description of a situation.. was i inaccurate?
i did say the effort is appreciated and i recognised not everyone has the capacity to make their own packages. but for those who could, is it so very wrong to suggest an update to an existing work be made available for download, as has been the proud tradition of such communities?

You are free to make your own update to the existing work and make it freely available for download. If you do, I will download it and compare it to my professionally made box that I’ll be getting at a great price.

It’s awesome to see a release like this happen. I already own the game, but would be interested in the box and manual. Are you going to have the box and manual on your site in the future?
