About

Who Are We

BigBox Gaming is a new game publishing company that will concentrate in bringing projects to life that resemble the old school computer game packaging. 

We aim for our projects to be compatible with a variety of computer platforms like Windows, Mac and the later Amiga systems (CDTV and CD32); All in one compact disk compatible with all the targeted systems.

What is a Minskie?

Our first project is Minskies Furballs, a Puzzle game similar to Tetris Attack (SNES) or Street Fighter Puzzle Fighter (PSOne). Minskies Furballs was developed and released for the early Amiga computers (500, 600, 1200) however it was never released for the CDTV and CD32. In addition, Minskies was developed for MSDOS systems, but due to the publisher entering the Amiga market late in its life (which brought poor sales for Minskies on Amiga computers), the DOS version of Minskies was cancelled.

After tracking down the owners and acquiring the rights, we quickly learned that the DOS version was 100% complete. We then worked on configuring the game to be fully playable and compatible with newer computer systems (Windows 7, 8 and 10 using Dosbox), we are now ready to bring Minskies  Furballs to Market!.

The game features 10 levels of Puzzle battle goodness, as well as a normal mode in which you don't battle any characters. The game can be played either Single player or in a 2 player battle. Unfortunately Minskies does not have controller support, however we have been able to make it work with free software to map keyboard keys to a controller button.

Stretch Goals

If we reach our initial goal, it will help us produce 500 copies of Minskies Furballs physically, however here are some stretch goals we have prepared for you:

Future Projects?

We hope to bring you future computer games in big box format. We have access to a large list of IPs! However we would like to receive input from the backers and the community to pick the best projects to bring to life. We plan to survey interested customers to pick the next BigBox release!

Risks and challenges

When you pledge on our Kickstarter we pledge back to you that you will receive your reward no matter what.

The only challenge or risk we may encounter is delays in delivering the rewards due to third party problems or weather events.
