To celebrate the release of the Manic Miner® app (a limited-edition: available for 30 days or 10,000 downloads only) we’re announcing, exclusive to Kickstarter, the limited-edition collectors’ print Manic Miner® playing cards and the limited-edition collectors' print Jet Set Willy® playing cards. 

Each production run of these playing cards will be tightly controlled. These playing cards will not be sold in shops. Each deck’s face cards feature illustrations drawn from the original games’ box art. These playing cards are officially licenced; from the owner of the copyright in the original games. Development of both decks (and their custom tuck boxes) is complete.

The goal of this appeal is to fund the production (by MPC) of 250 units of each deck.

Back the Kickstarter today … and look forward to playing with your Willy, even when taking a little time away from a screen.

ABOUT MANIC MINER® AND JET SET WILLY®

In 1983 a peerless new home computer game graced the scene. Its stand-out features included its quirky humour, in-game music / effects, high replay value and well-designed colourful graphics.

That game was Manic Miner®, originally designed for the ZX Spectrum.

A year later, its sequel, the second game in the Miner Willy series, became the best-selling and most widely written about British home computer game of the era.

That game was Jet Set Willy®, also originally designed for the ZX Spectrum.

Roll forward 35 years and kick nostalgia into overdrive with the release of the Manic Miner® app. A perfectly formed replica of the much-loved home computer game, with 3D voxel-style graphics.
