About this project

What is it?

An unofficial 240-page encyclopedia on everything there is to know about the classic NES game Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!...and a whole lot more! This book will appeal to everyone from nostalgic fans to hardcore retro gamers.

The book is a non-profit fan creation and not affiliated with Nintendo

What is the goal?

The goal is to print 200 copies of the book so you can own a copy! The plan is to:

  • Finalize the book by obtaining the remaining copyright permissions (i.e. Nintendo) and making final touch-ups
  • Print through self-publisher, Blurb, whose bulk discount rate has been arranged

How will the funds be used?

This is a non-profit project. 100% of funding will go towards printing costs. Please add $10 for postage (book only) within the United States or Australia — $20 elsewhere.

How far along is the project?

After 18 months, the book is print ready — it even has an ISBN. The last hurdle is getting copyright permission from Nintendo and various other sources, which is expected to take three months and may result in minor edits or omissions

If sufficient permission has not been obtained within three months, all funds will be refunded and life will go on.

What will you get?

  • $10 star uppercuts Glass Joe to get an eBook 
  • $125 counters the Bull Charge to get a hardcover book and eBook 
  • $175 sends Sandman to sleep to get all of the above and a numbered limited edition poster signed by the designer and myself
  • $250 TKOs Tyson in the first round to get all of the above and the hardcover will be numbered and signed by Matt Turk, Sinister1 and myself!

Who am I? 

Hi, my name is Daniel Lanciana and I'm a self-confessed retro video game nerd. I also have an unhealthy love of large 'coffee table' books and an obsessive-compulsive need to organize information. 

Who else is involved?

The most prolific record holder and strategy discoverer, Matt Turk, and the current record holder, Sinister1. Both contributed an enormous amount towards the technical accuracy of the book. Also lending a hand was fellow record holder Daniel Teixeira and TAS record holder Adelikat.

Update: Limited Edition Signed Poster

Graphic designer and illustrator, Ben Mitchell, has volunteered his piece from the POWER UP Video Game Art Show as the limited edition poster for pledges of $175 or more.

Posters will be five-color screen printed, numbered, and signed by Ben and myself. Ben is also in the works cooking up a brand new tee concept!
