Black Box Challenge from Sly Dog Studios is now available!
Posted by KHAN Games on November 15, 2017

Fresh off of the success of homebrew classics The Mad Wizard and Rise of Amondus from his epic Candelabra series, Rob Bryant of Sly Dog Studios announced just a few days ago that his new RPG, Black Box Challenge, is now available from!

After visiting a flea market, you are hit with the NES collecting bug. The only way to put the itch at ease is by collecting some games, and what better way to do that than by hitting the streets right around the area where you live?! You'll talk to people to get tips on where to find games, or perform specific tasks for them to get a prize straight from them! But before, there are those that don't care for nasty collectors, and will do anything to try and stop you!

With each game you collect, play a mini-game version of it and earn a power-up to help you advance in the game, or power yourself up. Find ways to access new parts of the game and defeat all of those that stand in the way of completing your black box set!

Can you brave the sewers in your quest? Can you overcome the heat of the desert and the unknown paths through the junkyard? Will you be able to stand the spookiness of an actual pirate ship? Find out in Black Box Challenge, a brand-new RPG for the NES, and prove to the Evil Overlord that you are a worthy collector!

  • Over 90 NPCs to interact with
  • 32 mini-games + other items
  • 45 different enemy types to wreck
  • 7 dramatic boss battles
  • Flash memory for game saves
  • 10+ hours of gameplay
The game is only $40 and is for sale right now! What are you waiting for? Click on this link RIGHT HERE and go pick up your very own copy!

A Breakdown of the Super Mario Kart Prototype
Posted by Ferris Bueller on November 06, 2017

Our own NA member Alter Egotist has just launched a new web series focusing on rare/cool Nintendo items and the history behind them. Talk about informative, jeez! This first episode was so chock full of information we had to watch it twice. Pretty cool the amount of research they managed to compile from all the way over in Ireland! Here's what they had to say about the endeavor.

(This is) ...a series I've been planning for quite some time. The first one will be on a Super Mario Kart prototype and quite a few of the members on here have helped with my preparation. Each episode of this series will be about something that's pretty cool for the gaming community and we'll be having special guests on a few that they are relevant to. 

Basically they will feature anything and everything in gaming that common people might not necessarily know about, but because of contacts and friends I've made I can get more of a back story. The next video will be on a signed super Mario 3 script I have from the last episode of the cartoon for example, and then I’m planning an episode on a NES competition cart. There are some amazing items out there!

Happy Halloween! Now with Gif!
