Risks and challenges

The costs to produce a new game for the Super Nintendo isn't cheap. $10,000 is the minimum we need to produce this game. Our cost include: carts (using new SNES molds and not recycled SNES carts), labels, PCB boards, boxes, programming and developing. Our goal is to produce this game no matter what, but with your contribution through Kickstarter, it will help get us there much faster and in doing so you can receive some very cool exclusive rewards. We plan on releasing Sydney Hunter and the Caverns of Death either way, but by backing this Kickstarter, you will ensure that this game will come out much sooner.
