New $1,000 “RETRO” LEVEL added with original Commodore 64 computer and 1541 disk drive

We’ve just added an exciting new $1,000 “RETRO” LEVEL in which we have miraculously managed to locate ten (10) Commodore 64 computers with 1541 floppy disk drives, and — if you support Fargoal 2 at the $1,000 level — we are going to ship one right to you along with a copy of the original C64 version of “Sword of Fargoal” copied onto a new floppy disk, plus a PDF copy of the original instructions with art (physical game box not included).

We were not able to locate enough Commodore 1701 or 1702 monitors, so a monitor is not included with this reward level. However, we provide you with a resource where you can purchase (separately) a cable which will allow you to connect your C64 computer to a modern TV set. Alternatively, you may be able to locate an original monitor on your own if you want to be 100% ‘original’ with your system!

Here is the full description of the great rewards you will get at the $1,000 level (available by scrolling down on the right-hand side of your screen). You may also click on “Manage Your Pledge” on the upper-right if you wish to select the “RETRO” LEVEL instead of what you have pledged currently!

Full “RETRO” LEVEL description:

“RETRO” LEVEL. Are you a RETRO Commodore 64 game lover? Always keeping your eye out for your own C64 system to play all the old games on? We have managed to do what is seemingly *impossible*: We've put together ten (10) original Commodore 64 systems, complete with the C64 computer and the 1541 floppy disk drive, PLUS a copy of the original C64 version of "Sword of Fargoal" on a new floppy disk. It will be packed professionally and shipped to you in the US at no additional cost (International shipping extra). This system *does not* include the original monitor, but we will provide you with a resource where you can purchase a cable suitable for viewing on your television set. In addition to this reward, you’ll be immortalized as an Associate Producer in the credits for all versions of the game, receiving the following perks: a printed retro-style Sword of Fargoal poster, a limited-edition print of the game artwork, a lavishly-bound print version of the Sword of Fargoal game book, beta access, the Sword of Fargoal 2 game (both the iOS Universal version for iPad and iPhone AND the desktop version for Mac/PC/Linux), the Sword of Fargoal 2 soundtrack, the exclusive Fargoal 2 wallpaper, a SoF2 T-shirt, and access to the backer-only forum.

Here is an original C64 commercial, plus "28 Games in 4 minutes" video for your enjoyment!

      Crazy as it seems, we found a secret *source* (which wishes to remain anonymous). These will be tested and confirmed working before we provide them to the lucky recipients…

      Totally understand about your vacation comment. Last time I went on vacation I experienced the same thing! — Hmmm, wasn’t that back in 1984? I’m trying to remember… (just kidding)

      Beyond awesome! I wish I could, but just spent my extra cash on a vacation. Where the heck do you find a 1571 drive and floppies that still work??
