¿Qué es un prototipo?

Cuando un proyecto tiene un producto final tangible, es necesario mostrar a los patrocinadores la documentación propia de un prototipo, que es un modelo preliminar del producto final. En esta galería el creador muestra fotos y videos proporcionando al patrocinador una idea del estado del proyecto, qué se ha conseguido y qué falta por conseguir. Aunque el proceso es diferente para cada proyecto, en general se ven las siguientes fases:

Prueba de concepto

Exploraciones que comprueban la idea y su funcionalidad.

Prototipo funcional

Demuestra la funcionalidad del producto final, pero su apariencia es distinta.

Prototipo de apariencia

La apariencia del prototipo es igual a la del producto final, pero no tiene funcionalidad.

Prototipo de diseño

Es igual al producto final en apariencia y función, sin embargo, está manufacturado de manera diferente.

Prototipo de producción

Apariencia, funcionalidad y método de manufactura son iguales en prototipo y producto final.

What is Retro Fighters?

The Retro Fighters controller for N64 is a modern take on the N64 controller. We wanted to remake the N64 controller with next generation features and designs!

 

What's Different?

We changed some things to make the N64 controller more ergonomic and a new modern way to play. First we added a very comfortable modern analog stick. We also made the "C" buttons slightly larger for games that use the "C" buttons for more than just camera angles, i.e. Smash Brothers, etc.

The shape of the controller is very comfortable and fits naturally in both hands with easy access to all the buttons.

We added two "Z" buttons and repositioned them right below the shoulder buttons, this allows to use either your right or left hand to use the "Z" button. A turbo button was added for games where you might need a little extra help. The D-pad features zero "deadzone" or sensitivity/response issues.

Finally, we got rid of the 3 prong N64 controller design, a new modern and comfortable way to play your favorite N64 games!

The analog stick features an octagonal gate and no sensitivity issues.

 

Why no USB?

It would have cost us a lot more time and money to come up with a controller with both N64 and USB functionality, the software and time to do so would have been too long to complete and too costly.

However, If you do want to use the N64 controller for PC, it is possible, there are several cheap adapters in the market that you can purchase online to play the N64 Retro Fighters Controller with your PC / MAC / or RetroPie etc.

If this Kickstarter is successful, we plan to release a 2nd USB version of this controller.

Timeline

We already have a workable pre-release version of the controller that is 100% functional. We have also put our own money into the project to get it off the ground. Here is the timeline to complete the project once we reach funding:

1. Finish Molding Process: 30 Days

2. Test and confirm 2nd pre-release version: 5 Days

3. Go into production: 45 Days

4. Shipping Time by Air: 5 Days

Cost

We wanted to keep the cost down as much as possible, yet not skimp on quality, we are essentially passing on the savings to our backers to get this product made.  We are selling these versions at $20 each.

Memory Cards & Rumble Pak Compatibility

Yes! Memory Cards & Rumble Pak are 100% compatible with the Retro Fighters N64 Controller!

Stretch Goals

If we reach past our funding goal of $13,000 ($20,000), additional color options will be available to purchase after all Kickstarter backers receive their gray ones. It will take a little more time to do the colored options but these will be available 60-90 days after everyone gets their initial gray colors.

These colored options will be available to all Kickstarter backers who purchased at least 1 X controller or more from the Kickstarter campaign and will receive a $10.00 promo code per controller purchase online at a few retail partners. The final retail price which will be $29.99.

Kickstarter backers are getting the early backing price of $20.

Our goal is not to add to any complications to fulfillment with the added time to get the colors produced and will be available at a later date.

 Thank you

Thank you to everyone for your support and we hope that we are able to fully fund this project for the retro gaming community and N64 enthusiasts everywhere!

As always we are "Retro Fighters" fighting for Retro!

Thank you!
Thank you!

 

Riesgos y desafíos

We already have a pre-release version made that is 100% functional we just need the additional funding to complete the controller and go into production. We will make sure to keep our project on time according to the mentioned timeline schedule.
