Hey everyone, welcome to the auction of Ninja! I'll start by giving a major shout out to everyone that helped this project come together. Neodolphino (cart assembly/EPROMs soldering), Second-Dimension (boards), RetroScribe (Shells), Aaron Edelman (amazing manuals/labels), Millerjm2 (lovely boxes - here's his site: http://thisroomisanillusion.com...
), CrunchyPixel (breathtaking hand drawn art - same artist from the "A Winner is You" music cart LE) and last but certainly not least, User for such a fun and enlightening collaboration - I had an absolute blast working on this!
This game is a collaboration between myself and Nemesys (as credited in-game). The music was entirely scored by me (all original compositions) and the game design was by Nemesys. This game debuted at PRGE 2016 as a small, limited run. There were only 5 copies released. The front of the boxes and carts had PRGE 2016 printed on them (along with the manuals having hand-written number confirmations in the MEMO section as well). Now NA has a shot at owning a copy.
Ninja - What originally started as a track and field like game, quickly morphed into what it is now; A series of events that test the skills of those that want to become shadow warriors. This game essentially captures the trials and tribulations that one must endure in order to become a Ninja. The game moves in "events", where each event encompasses its own unique controls and goals (try your intuition or read the manual to figure out how they work!). Compete against the computer while choosing a level of difficulty (1 easiest, 3 hardest) or compete against a friend. For each event that you win, you are awarded a point. At the end of all of the events, your score gets tallied up in order to decide who the real Ninja is.
My first LE was way too confusing, so I'm simplifying this one:
-ONE BID per person/member. Make it count.
-The auction will run for an undisclosed amount of time. I reserve the right to end the auction early if I see fit.
-Bid in whole dollar amount (no cents).
-You must have been a member on here -prior- to the date of this thread/posting to place a valid bid.
-The top 20 bidders will receive one limited edition copy/set of Ninja when I close the auction.
With the one-bid auctions, you will want to make sure that you've made your bid count. Here's some links to previous one-bid auctions to give you a general idea of what to possibly expect:
