"The Complete NES" is a project that is a combination campaign having multiple different aspects to it. There is a thorough NES Collector's Guide covering the entire licensed US NES library, a brand new physical NES RPG that focuses on Collecting NES games and game-related artwork opportunities from world-renowned Topps artist Joe Simko. This is truly a passion project by some down-to-earth guys just trying to share their passion of gaming to as many people as possible. Please help out where you can and spread the love!

If for some reason your credit / debit / bank card won't work with Kickstarter, you can back the project at any of the non-limited rewards or add-on tiers via this PayPal Link.

  • 300+ Pages of NES Content.
  • Box Art, Screen shot, Info and Summary per Game.
  • Upgrade possibilities.

"The Complete NES - Officially Licensed US Releases" aims to be the most complete Nintendo Entertainment System collector's guide to be fully published. The idea behind this stemmed from there not being a NES collector’s guide with exactly what I wanted. It has since morphed into something pretty amazing and special; surpassing anything I had envisioned. Basically, each game covered in the book will have the box art, screen shot, release year, publisher and a brief summary of each licensed NES game; along with 3 checkboxes so you can mark off if you have the cart, instructions or the box. I am doing a really nice hardcover version with full color and also an inexpensive smaller pocket-sized black and white version to allow the ability to take it with you on game hunts or for a quick reference, if you find a certain game on the fly.

There are stretch goals available that will expand the content to add in unlicensed and "Holy Grails" into the book. There are many other avenues I can go, with extra bonus content and even other books, if we get to that point.

  • Brand New Physical NES Homebrew RPG!
  • Multiple options available for both gamers and collectors.
  • All new parts being used, nothing salvaged from old cartridges.
  • Limited Edition option available with Exclusive Joe Simko Art.
This is just "placeholder" box art for the regular edition. There will be a backer contest, with a limited prize for the winner.
This is just "placeholder" box art for the regular edition. There will be a backer contest, with a limited prize for the winner.

The insanely talented indie developer, Sly Dog Studios, has come up with an amazing NES homebrew game to go along with the book release! It will be called "Jeffrey Wittenhagen's Black Box Challenge". This game will be Sly Dog Studio's first RPG, with the goal of collecting every NES Black Box game, in a turn-based fashion. They have a ton of awesome ideas and, as Sly Dog Studios always does with their games, they will likely revolutionize what NES RPGs are capable of doing. There are different versions available to you depending on the type of gamer or collector you are.

We are also doing a port of the game to the new Retro VGS cartridge-based console. Jeffrey Wittenhagen's Black Box Challenge will strive be a launch title for the platform! We will also offer a Kickstarter exclusive colors, artwork and separate Limited Editions to backers, should we meet the stretch goal.

Retro VGS Label if Stretch Goal is Met

  • Joe Simko high quality art prints.
  • Limited painting options.
  • Commission Joe to create your picture.

Just to make this an even more special event, Joe Simko, the artist behind the re-release of the Topps Garbage Pail Kids line of trading cards, has created the book's cover and the Limited Edition NES box art!

On top of that, Joe is also working on a special gaming related piece of art that he will be offering professional prints of, having the original also available as a backer option. This is traditional hand-drawn artwork, inked and rendered in glowing bright markers, with painted acrylic highlights; a true work of art!

Furthermore, there is a reward tier where you can commission Joe to create artwork for you! There are also a couple of stretch goal opportunities where Joe will create more art pieces.

The picture for the art print is coming soon, approx 1 week, as Joe is currently swamped with work from Topps. He plans on it being a group shot of a bunch of notable NES villains.

Stretch goals for us are things that will require us to either spend extra money, (e.g. Limited Edition colors/art), a ton of extra work, (e.g. adding unlicensed games to the book), or a combination of the two (e.g. making a second revision of Hidden Treasures with a brand new cover)! Some goals add content to previous tiers, while others are extra items going to backers. Other requests from backers for extra content we have not thought of may allow us to add more. All of these stretch goals are reasonable enough for us to get them done within the same allotted amount of time. Keep in mind that while we have only gone up to a certain amount, we have a ton of ideas for further stretch goals, should we get there!

In case you want extra items, or we do not have a certain combination tier available, you have the option to add-on any non-limited item you want. There are also a few items available as add-ons that aren't a main backer reward, such as the perler bookmarks and my previous book release.

All you have to do is add the correct amount, as listed below, plus proper shipping, on to your pledge amount and when you fill out the survey, after the campaign, just let us know which add-ons you ordered. Simple as that! 

If for some reason your credit / debit / bank card won't work with Kickstarter, you can back the project at any of the non-limited rewards or add-on tiers via this PayPal Link.

Risks and challenges

This campaign is a true grass-roots project and we are the definition of the term indie. Our goal is to make this Kickstarter interactive with all backers, having fan interaction, backer polls and even online gaming opportunities; as in the end we are gamers and collectors too, just like you!

This campaign strives to be as self sufficient, and we will give back to the community, as much as possible. Not only is each person involved with the project responsible for their part; you, as the backer, will also be directly supporting them. Each member of this project owns the rights to the items they have on this campaign. You aren't backing us to allow us buy licenses or to stock up on product, you are just simply supporting each person's work, making everything possible on a much larger scale. This is the true meaning of a diverse community project, and everything, from the perk pricing to the stretch goals, has been structured as such. We have tried to add as many bonuses to reward tiers as we can to make each reward tier worthwhile.

Talking with multiple other creators of successful Kickstarter campaigns, their biggest problem was not accounting for "Overhead" when running their projects. Due to those conversations, we decided that the easiest way to cover this is to account a simple 25% for all overhead expenses. This means Kickstarter fees, taxes, excess shipping/packaging costs, etc are all accounted for within each item's price.

As for challenges, the NES RPG game is currently in development and the goal is to have it out by April of next year; and hopefully much sooner than that. Remember that this is a full console RPG and that this isn't an easy undertaking. That being said, there could be unforeseen circumstances, out of our control, that delay this process. Our pledge to you is that we will keep all backers up to date with anything that happens with the project. We want to keep you involved as much as possible as this is your project as much as it is ours!

All non-game related tiers will be released as they are completed, which will likely be sooner than the game. Combination tiers, that include a physical game reward, will be shipped as one package, in order to save on shipping costs and avoid confusion. We will put out a poll after the completion of the Kickstarter, once the initial items are ready to be shipped out, that will have an address field for all backers with a physical reward. It is extremely important for this to be up-to-date as this will be the address we use for shipping rewards! It is also very important to specify any add-on items you may have purchased.

Thank you for supporting our endeavor and we look forward to seeing how much of this we can make a reality for everyone!
