I love the Super Nintendo console. It is my all time favorite console. I get really excited when I find a game for sale at a flea market or thrift store. I wish I was my current age when the Super Nintendo was barely taking off to get to start developing games for it. But it is not too late. Like me, there are hundreds of Super Nintendo Enthusiasts all around the World; they not only collect, but some of the use their skills to make awesome things, like new games and hardware. I met 3 different developers which had worked on, or were working on new SNES games. They had no intention on releasing it on cartridge format because it was going to be a long costly run. I started working with them, and finally got to make a Prototype for the games, ALL IN ONE CART! We are ready to release this game to the public, to those collectors that want a new SNES game, to those parents that want their child to play non-violent games, for those gamers that enjoy Retro video games; for you! We need your help to fund the production run of the project, We have put together several different rewards that are explained in the video. We hope our project captures your attention and we get you to donate at least one dollar!
Information about the games
Mazezam is a Puzzle Video game. The main goal of the game is help the character pass through different stages that are filled with obstacles. The player has to be very careful while moving the obstacles to not close down his path, because if he does, he would need to restart the stage with the cost of a life. The game gives the option to write a password and advanced to the last stage you play. Mazezam has over 50 Stage levels and each level is harder than the last one. Mazezam was the winner of the Neo Flash 2012 video game competition and it was featured in a Retro Video Game Magazine from the UK. The game has both French and English text.
UWOL - Quest for Money was originally developed by the Spanish Development team, Mojon Twins. UWOL was released for the ZX Spectrum and it has been ported to the SNES because it is a really fun game that resembles a lot the 80s and 90s arcades, and also it is "Nintendo hard". UWOL Features 55 Levels were the player needs to find money on a millionaire mansion that is haunted by our classic monsters. This game is also available for SEGA Genesis, but there is no intention of ever getting a cart release.
Skipp and Friends was developed by Mokunda Johnson for the PDRoms.com Video Game competition in 2009. He won first place for the game, but unfortunately the original winning game was not made to work on an actual console. After reaching out to Mukunda, he agreed to fix the game and get ti to work on the console. The game has been fully tested to run on the SNES and Supaboy. The object of the game is to move all three characters to the EXIT in each level. Each player has 2 limited special abilities that you may use to help advance through the level. The in-game status bar displays the name of each ability and how many times it can be used during that level. All three players must be alive and to the exit to complete the level. If you get yourself stuck, press START to pause and then SELECT to restart the level. After you complete each level a 4 letter password is given to you so that you may resume the game using the Password option at the title screen, after your system has been shut off.
N- WARP Daisakusen is a very simple game that captured lot of attention in 2008. The game consists on a 2-8 player free for all fighting game. The game supports the SNES Multitap to connect more than 2 controllers on the console. It is a great game for a party or a family gathering. The game was also featured on the Retro Magazine and other major websites like Kotaku. This game has never seen the light on a Cart Release, until now. The developer of N-Wrap has develop several other projects. His latest accomplishment is the port of the Super Road Blaster for the SNES a 512 Megabytes game, the biggest ever made for the SNES.
Overcoming Technical Difficulties
The 4 in 1 SNES Multicart has a simple blue screen menu to access the game. Although it has been criticized, it is the ONLY possible way to access different game files stored in one cart. If all the games were developed from scratch at the same time, by the same person, there would be the possibility to make a 1 ROM file for all the games with a more complex menu. The Cart Access the different ROM images with a Mapper Chip. The menu tells the Mapper which ROM to access in the memory at command.
Stretch Goal #1 Balloon Attack, The 5th Game
Thanks to the great support we had from all the retro gaming community, we were able to hit our goal in 8 days!
Now, we want to offer an incentive for all the people that haven't pledge, so they can support with at least $1 If we hit the $16,500 we will develop and add a 5th game to the Multicart! The game is called Balloon Attack it features a hot air balloon which has to drop bombs on ancient castles in order to destroy them. But the catch is that you have a limited amount of bombs each level, and the castles get bigger and bigger as you advance.

I love this game because you have to play to beat your own score! If we meet the 16,500 mark, we will add this 5th game to the Multicart, and we will announce another stretch goal which is just as cool! Thank you

Risks and challenges
When It comes to fulfillment I have years of experience in fulfilling online orders for online sales.
As a Retro Collector, I love to "hunt" for games in thrift stores, Flea Markets, Pawn shops and on craigslist. Then I sell the extras or double games that I acquire in big lots online; it is a hobby, it is part of my life.
I have been doing that since 2005; Buying, Selling and Trading Retro Video games became my full-time job when I was in college. A major part of the sales required shipping fulfillment.
I will be responding comments as much as a can and be 24/7 on top of this project. I will post weekly updates to all the backers so they have a very good idea of the status of the project.
I have done a lot of work to prepare for this kickstarter, this involved getting a prototype done. Basically, they game is ready for production run, it is a matter of raising funds and placing the manufacturing order.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
