Have a question?
Hey Tom... as as FYI- Amazon lists Tempest as Sept. 30th release... I know that's not official but... :)
Is August still looking like a viable shipping date?
Jeff, they'll be no more future Kickstarters these these products. They've started their own website to sell future items. :)
Announce next machine please, so I can back my 3rd.. :)
Let me just say I am so looking forward to receiving this at some stage. Keep up the good work and please do let us know what the next console will be!
Hey all, we are still working hard on RepliCade X Tempest. We will have an update soon showing off our progress! In the meantime, we are going to send out the backer emails. Thank you all again for backing!
Hey David, both RepliCade machines have four non slick pads that are on the bottom corners of the machine.
Hey Steve, we have not sent the surveys out for Tempest, but will do so in the next couple of days.
Last night I went to Toys R Us to see the going out of business sale (Not great yet) and found a "My Arcade" Burger Time. I picked it up, 10% off is 10% off and I've kinda wanted it. On the bottom of the machine there is rubber pads that help it not to slide. I don't think these have anything like that, right? It might be something to consider in the future ones.
Have you sent the surveys out for TEMPEST? I git one for CENTIPEDE but don't recall one for TEMPEST. Please let me know and keep up the great work! :)
Thanks Andrew for the kind words! Lot of classics in that list!
So many great suggestions here for cabs. I'm here for a subscription if you guys can do it! I'd love one of these every quarter. I'll take a life subscription.
My thoughts on cabs. There's the obvious legacy must-haves:
Pong (true legacy and unmistakable cab)
And here's my highly subjective wants!
Donkey Kong Jnr
Star Wars (great suggestion by Ryan)
Ghosts n Goblins
Super Sprint (nice call Paul)
Pleiads or Exerion (super subjective personal wish)
Dragons Lair (would be insane but technically very possible)
And PLEASE some Williams titles. Defender & Joust would tie it all together nicely.
Thanks guys and keep us the amazing work!
Thank you very guys.
Thanks Daddy Warbucks for the kind words and we will keep up the great work! In terms of new announcments, we may have some new info or teasers on the next cabinet soon!
Hey Steve, Tony is right (thanks Tony!) that your card probably would have been charged when the Kickstarter ended. I will be sending you a private message as well.
I know we have yet to receive the first (Centipede) or the second (Tempest) consoles yet, but is there any chance you’ll be announcing the third one yet so we can commit more funds to you?
I seriously hope they are as cool as they appear. This is hands down the most fun I’ve had backing any project on Kickstarter and you guys do a fantastic job communicating with your backers. Keep up the amazing work.

Your card has already been charged for the Tempest unit, Steve. Probably before the exp. date. :)
I realise the info i gave about my credit are now false because my card expired. How can i change this to add the new card infos?
Hey Daddy Warbucks, glad you appreciate that! We wanted to keep our word on that front. We haven't announced that we are up on Amazon yet as the pages are still being created (as you could probably see). Also, we have thought about that problem for Track and Field and others cabinets like it.
Hey Ryan, Star Wars would be a great one to do!
Hey Paul, those would all be good cabinets to do in the future. Stay tuned!
Let me the first to notice and say how much I appreciate how the products you’ve listed on Amazon are selling for the MSRP you said they would in your KS campaign. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve supported a $150 project that boasts it’s 50% off the normal price of $300, only to see them listing them for the same $150 the moment they get released to the public.

Star Wars would be such a smash hit, it would be insane. I'd love to see that.
As for next....donkey king , pac man licence permitting...as for more Atari games paperboy , pole position , super sprint , toobin , gauntlet some lovely graphics on those cabinets
Gameplay on joust would be problematic. All that tapping on a small button would create issues I think. Same, but potentially worse, for Track and Field.
Hey David, both would certainly have cool cabs that we could do! I loved Joust back in the day!
It’d be nice to see a Williams game too. I don’t think their licenses are too hard to come by either. Defender or Joust would be really cool.
Same with Midway, though Warner Bros owns them now, so not 100% sure about ease to license.
Hey Tracey, we are not selling combo packs of any kind. That would just be if you wanted to buy two of the same cabinet, much like we did on Kickstarter. And Tempest is very exciting!
Hey Tony, we are working away on our cabinets! We hope to have some updates soon!
Looking forward to this, September is going to be a long time away. I missed out on the Centipede and just noticed today you were selling combo packs of Tempest/Centipede elsewhere but I'm guessing you couldn't offer that here since you had that separately before. Oh well. of the two, I'm more excited bout Tempest.
Been quiet on the homefront...anything going on? :)
Hey Ian, first thanks for the complements and backing! So for the screen, we are still working with different types of screens as well as different tweaks that we can do to make it look as close to the vector screen as possible. We hope to be able to show off our progress in the next update!
hi, you guys are clearly very smart and non-compromising when it comes to these reproductions, how are you going about replicating the dedicated vector screen?
@ cybereye Thank you very much!
@Mario Villanueva, You can get Centipede edition from indiegogo.com and do a word search on RepliCade.
I have a question, I missed out on the Centipede Replicade project...where would I be able to purchase one? Thank you for your time and I look forward to all future projects!
Hey Brian, we also love the fact that we can do control types that are hard to reproduce at home! We will also do some regular control types (as there are some iconic games that use them), but we can't wait to tackle other games with different control types!
Thanks Jeff! That will be cool to have them next to each other!
Hey Andre, thanks for backing! We will look into stuff like that for the bezel as long as it doesn't hinder the video quality.
The coolest feature of these little RepliCade cabs is that they deliver control types that are hard to reproduce at home (trackball, spinner). For the most part, joystick/button configurations are easier to experience at home. Please, consider this in future RepliCade projects with games such as TRON, Missile Command, Crystal Castles, Warlords, Star Wars, etc.
Can't wait to get this and place it next to the real thing. It'll be a tough choice of which one to play!
I'm absolutely excited to be supporting this project!
One suggestion that I'd like to make as you guys think of finishing touches, is to experiment with adding some kind of glossy overlay that would simulate the tinted plexiglass that normally covers the screen and bezel (which hides the edges/transition between the two, and makes it appear like one big surface). I'm not sure if it would overly dim the lcd screen, but it sure would look nice on my desk! ;)
Sounds good, thanks!
Hey Ryan, we will be sending out backer surveys in a few weeks getting addresses and such. What we can do is we will have a database sent up so when it gets closer (like June), shoot us a message and we will switch your address to your new address!
Question, when these eventually ship, will we be notified to verify our shipment addresses? I don't believe I will be at this address by the time these ship later this year, and I'd like to have it sent to another location.
Hey Jeffery, as of right now, we are not going to have a spot to connect external USB controllers to the Replicade X Tempest. It may be something we consider later. Thanks for the comment!
Hey hand0rf, we are still working on how we are going to tackle the replacement parts and repairs, but we will have solutions before the product comes out! Thanks for commenting!
Glad to see you will have a larger spinner option! I wonder if you could take it one step further though:
Would it be feasible to make it possible to connect an external USB spinner controller to the mini Tempest?
I have a weighted Tempest replica usb spinner controller that I would really love to be able to use with this game.
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?
