This morning's update looked good. Glad to see he's adding stuff.

My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Ferris pass out at the Let's Play Gaming Expo last night. I guess it's pretty serious.

Oh, my WTB thread is very popular. The sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, wastoids, dweebies, Richard craniums - they all adore it. They think it's a righteous thread.
I'd also like to add that I've got my father's gun and a *scorching* price guide for aftermarket Nintendo games.
Between Dragon Warriors and nothing... I'll take Dragon Warriors - for any of my FT/FS/FO items.

"I'm new to NintendoAge but have been developing new NES games for almost 6 years."

That is actually kind of interesting. These days its all about keeping up with the scene and being a part of the scene. Glad your here now.

By coming here you should get a lot more exposure with your games.

The gameplay video looks very interesting, but I think your graphics could use a bit of work. They evoke older DOS RPGs like the early Ultima games, and while they're functional, they're not very attention grabbing. Have you thought of reaching out to someone to help with sprite and tile art? It could make a huge difference in your campaign and create some more interest around the project. Not trying to be too critical, just trying to offer some constructive criticism. I'd love to see this project grow.



EDIT: Here's a little example - I did a quick redesign of your wraith. Maybe if you were to try a style like this it could be more visually appealing.
I support this idea. The concept and gameplay are intriguing, but the graphics have kept me from pulling the trigger so far. (That said, congrats on getting fully funded, OP!)

Is there a set track the enemies follow? It seemed kind of random based on the video...

hey, it's 50 mins to go and I'd like to thank everyone for the support. I'm only on board as a contributor to this project but I'm glad to see the love from the NA community and am grateful for all of the support in keeping the dream alive of producing a NES game!

Got my copy 3 days ago. Can't stop playing it.
A tower defense game for the nes is something I wanted forever.
I'll say, I'd change a few things, but overall. It's excellent.
Currently i'm on level 8 with 31 pesents...
Love to hear how others are doing with it!

Ah, damn... I had forgotten about this. Does he have that available to buy outside of the kickstarter? I love tower defense games.

Yeah, I intended to contribute toward the end of the campaign and then managed to get busy the last couple of days and forgot about it. I wanted in on this too. Oh well, I guess that's what happens when you wait.

My understanding is there would be a standard release with a different label.
