Original Post

Hey Everyone!
Incase anyone hasn’t seen, I’ll be doing some batches of reproductions of some Virtual Boy games. (more can be found here –> http://www.planetvb.com/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=6766&forum= ) I’m in works of seeing if I can get ahold of the guy responsible for Hyper Fighting. It’s no easy task, and It may just be easier to locate a proto of dragon Hopper :P.

BUT if I do get a hold of him, and I do get his blessing, curious, who would be seriously interested in a physical production of the game? I’m not sure of a price yet, depends on what I find out. But if I get the okay, and the ROM. I plan to release it with a newly designed label (which will help tell my batch from previous ones, plus I like the design I made more :P)

It’ll be cart only, but I’ll let Uncle Tusk use the artwork for him to create a box and manual for the game to help people get a CIB copy as well as let people who want just cart only to be cart only (In exchange I’ll just ask him for a free set for myself :P)

Just getting a feel for demand and a head count. I’ll keep you all posted from what I find out

Thanks!
~Johnny

(If this falls through, my first game will end up being Gundam SD English)

I’d love to get my hands on just the cart! I just hope it won’t be too expensive, any price estimates so far? To be honest, I’ve never purchased a homebrew game before, so I’m not really sure what to expect.

You can count me in for a cart as well.
Loved playing the demo but it would be nice to finally play the full version.

count me in, i need 2 copies. however minestorm already confirmed theyre re-releasing cart-only versions of this, so i seriously doubt theyd give you the rom for repro purposes.

at any rate, i would definitely buy 2 if theyre reasonably priced

oh and if u do make other repros, id love jack bros and waterworld, as theyre the only 2 i dont own, cuz theyre just too overpriced.

If it will be in a quality like the “original” one – i’m interested in one copy. Would be great to get box, instruction etc. from Uncle Tusk as well 😋

Neat! minestorm is the guy who supplied me with the PCBs for this ROM, and I sent him a peek of the new label. Wonder if their is a connection 😛

I will be doing other repro’s, but sorry to say, I won’t be doing anything thats officially released. Just Homebrews, Translations, and other Rom Hacked versions

however minestorm already confirmed theyre re-releasing cart-only versions of this

I was referring to Johnny Phantom.

BTW I’ve seen his new label artwork and it is REALLY nice.

Put me down for a copy as well.

Thanks! ^-^

me too. I have a box design up, that you can use if you’d like or as a template, up to you.

I would be interested in 2 copies as well as any other releases you do. Keep up the great work!

Please count me in for a cart.
Sometime I will test the link-cable if its possible.

I am also definitely interested in buying another cart.

I’ll take 2 please!!

In for one

depending on the price point, i would also like a copy. =)
