The Complete Virtual Boy: 100+ Page Color Hardcover Book!

$8,841

185

This project started as an April Fools Joke a few years ago, however this is NOT A JOKE, but a REAL BOOK that is completely formatted and will be at least 100 pages.

If this book is funded during this purposely short weekish-long campaign (April 1st to the 9th), writing will commence and The Complete Virtual Boy will be added to the numbered archives of Hagen's Alley Books.

If you want this book to become a reality, please support and share with everyone you know!

Stretch Goals

If everyone is crazy enough to make this Campaign popular, I will throw in some upgrades for the book like expanded content for the Project and upgrades to the book.

Third Goal $8000 - Time to expand more... at quadruple funding I will Double the Size of every physical release on the Virtual Boy in the book! That means, Japanese Exclusives, Aftermarket Releases of Unreleased and Homebrew games will all get the maximum coverage.

Second Goal CONQUERED!- Time for a Hagen's Alley Classic...I'll add a Virtual Boy Red Bookmark Ribbon for each Book!

First Goal CRUSHED! - Double the Funding Goal and I'll Double the Size for each US Game Review! 

Rough Example, I'm not sure if I like the manual and cartridge there but this is to give you an idea

Risks and challenges

The timelines are always a thing that's tough to meet. With this bonus book project, which initially started out as an April Fools Joke but became a reality when fans wanted it to happen, it has been on the back burner for a year so things will take time to make as perfect as possible.

Once the writing is completed it will be submitted to the editor and printed. This will take some time, which is why the shipping date is far off, as other projects will be going on at the same time. Keep that in mind that this is a bonus book!
