      Has anything been written about replacement parts / repairs?

      I’m just a little concerned about dropping $115 on one of these, only to have something go wrong 3 months later and no way to repair it.

      Am I way off base?

      Hey Matt, thanks for the advice! We have been experimenting and noticed that as well as we have used different screens, so we are hard at work trying to smooth out the jaggies! Will look into the IPS!

    4. New Wave Toys 2-time creator about 8 hours ago

      Thanks Brick Dad! That is a good question, we are shooting for it to come out fairly soon (have a couple other things we need to set up first before the announcement). Stay tuned!

      Hey Jeff, sent you a direct message!

    6. New Wave Toys 2-time creator about 8 hours ago

      Hey Supergoodpixel, you never know we may be able to do that some day! Those are all awesome and great that you have a Tron!

    7. New Wave Toys 2-time creator about 8 hours ago

      Hey Craig, thanks for backing! There are so many classics to do so stay tuned for future announcements!

      Thanks Cybereye for your help on multiple posts!

      Hey Bobby, I am getting to these comments later and I know you have seen the Centipede update, but I didn't want to leave your comment unanswered!

    10. New Wave Toys 2-time creator about 8 hours ago

      Hey Andrew, thanks for backing and the suggestion!

    11. New Wave Toys 2-time creator about 8 hours ago

      Hey Todd, yes we decided that since this is just a limited run (this was initially done just so the Centipede backers had a chance to get it at a reduced price) we are not going to do stretch goals for this one. Thanks for backing!

      Please make sure to pick a nice LCD screen. I suggest an IPS. Anything low res is going to make the smooth vector graphics style graphics look jaggy. I noticed they looked like this in the preview video here, but as it was stated, this is not the final LCD.

      To be clear, this is my biggest fear with this project. I don't even play Tempest emulated on any of my portable devices, because the vectors look awful.

      @cybereye Cool! That seems to work, and given that it's free shipping, I don't need to handle the usual US to Canada shipping woes. Thanks!

      @Jeff Richards, you may able to get the keychain from indiegogo.com by searching with key word RepliCade.

      @New Wave Toys, any change of getting that keychain as an add-on before the end of the campaign? Or are you having a pledge manager where we could add it?

    17. Supergoodpixel 1 day ago

      Would love to see ATARI STAR WARS, TRON, and MARBLE MADNESS. I know Disney will never let you do star wars, or tron however. I do have a real TRON machine if you need any info on it! :)

      If you do another Atari based replicade, hoping you can do Asteroids, Missile Command or Black Widow. Other games I would love to see would be Berzerk, Defender, Joust, Donkey Kong, Frogger, Tapper or Q*Bert.

      @DC, You can get Centipede edition from indiegogo.com and do a word search on RepliCade.

      I’d rather have centipede. Is there any way to purchase your first version?

    22. Daddy Warbucks Esq. 2 days ago

      Howdy,
      With Tempest set to get locked down and funded in 3 days (congratulations by the way), can I assume the Centipede update video for the other project will be posted before then?

      Thanks,
      Bobby

      Guessing there is an any stretch goals considering the campaigns about finished

    25. New Wave Toys 2-time creator 3 days ago

      Hey Jim, we are looking at all types of games (from mainstream to niche). It may not be right away, but we will cater to the niche market as well. Thanks for backing!

    26. New Wave Toys 2-time creator 3 days ago

      Hey Darren, thanks for backing and liking the idea. We plan on having a pretty frequent release time going forward for our cabinets! I agree, variety is definitely a good idea!

    27. New Wave Toys 2-time creator 3 days ago

      Thanks Tony for the help as always!

    28. New Wave Toys 2-time creator 3 days ago

      Hey Brick Dad, sorry for the delay on the update. We just decided that we wanted to make it bigger to appease everyone, so it is taking slightly longer than planned. We are finishing parts of it right now and don't worry, it is coming very soon!

    29. Tony Smejek 3 days ago

      Yeah, if you read that update on V-day, it said there will be a video one as well, coming out soon. Just be patient.

      Everything okay with the update? Starting to get a little nervous.

      Very much looking forward to these machines and what the future holds. I've seen a lot of requests for a lot of popular games (which is to be expected) but I was wondering if you guys were considering any of the lesser known games (many of which I found myself drawn to over the more popular ones)? Any chance for the likes of Satan's Hollow, Crazy Climber or GI Joe? Also curious on the chances of the really vintage games like Pong?

      How frequently are you planning to release each replicade machine? I think it is a great idea and obviously the backing shows many others agree. If you are going to keep going with the Atari licence in the near future i would love to see a racing game with mini wheel (if it is possible at this scale) games like Atari's Badlands, Super Sprint or Fire Truck come to mind, also on the Atari theme Food Fight would be a nice addition or classics such as Asteroids or Avalanche . You already have the trackball tech from Centipede to produce a Missle Command machine. It would be nice to variety of different genres though as the 1st two machines fall into the shooter category, so a maze, driving or platform game would be a welcome addition. Anyway as i said a fantastic idea, can't wait for Centipede and Tempest and i hope there are many more to follow...Burger Time ,Pac-man, Bubbles, Tapper, Frogger, Paperboy, Rally X, Donkey Kong Jr...

      Hey everyone,

      We have a big video update coming very soon. We wanted to do an update explaining the video update, but we are busy making this video update happen so I am leaving this comment instead. We think everyone will be very satisfied with the update (we have heard what we need to show), so stay tuned! Thanks again for backing us!

      Hey Daddy Warbucks, we don't take it as a slight as we totally understand!

    37. Daddy Warbucks Esq. 6 days ago

      Thanks! Please don’t think I’m being critical. I can’t wait to get mine, but since I’m supporting the second one (Tempest) on the back of my perceived satisfaction with the first one (Centipede) I just want to make sure that any lingering issues since your first project update on Centipede have been resolved.

      Regards.

      Hey GDBroker, I will be sending you a direct message!

    40. New Wave Toys 2-time creator 6 days ago

      Hey Yudi, we hope to surprise you! And as I said in the other comments, we have an update coming tomorrow on Valentine's day!

    41. New Wave Toys 2-time creator 6 days ago

      Hey Todd, it is true that this Kickstarter has had a lot less updates than our original Centipede one. However, we do have an update coming tomorrow!

    42. New Wave Toys 2-time creator 6 days ago

      Hey Daddy Warbucks, we have an update coming tomorrow on Valentines day that will address your concerns about not having an update before the end of the Tempest Kickstarter!

    43. cybereye 6 days ago

      @GDBroker, You can get Centipede edition from indiegogo.com and do a word search on RepliCade.

    44. GDBroker 6 days ago

      Same boat as a few others. I just came across this and backed but would love to find out how to get in on the Centipede edition. Looks amazing all around.

    45. Daddy Warbucks Esq. 6 days ago

      Many here also backed their first campaign for the Centipede console. The last formal update for that one highlighted issues with things like the track ball, changes to look and feel of the cabinet, etc.... Since that first campaign isn’t supposed to ship until April (knock on wood), and this campaign ends in less than a week, I was hoping they could do a proper update on the first one before locking us all into he second one.

      I think that’s more than fair.

      Even the first update was not a real update - only thank you...

      Man this campaign is quiet. Barely any updates.

    48. Yudi Marton 7 days ago

      According to my long years of experience with kickstarter pledging, no way ! according to the amount of backers, that they will success to deliver their machine on time, delay I assume will be a several months....

      @creator

      Any chance you can do another proper update on the Centipede project so we can get comfort in that one before you lock us in to another one?
