We still can't believe it's happened, but SimCity for the NES has been unearthed! Back from the depths of a closet, two protoype carts have appeared like Bowser on the loose in Tokyo, stomping, smashing, and ripping up all guesses on what their value may be!

Yesterday, a longtime NA member BIGDADDYRAMIREZ posted the above two minute video showcasing the first footage seen of this unreleased NES game since it appeared on Johnny Arcade in 1991. Where exactly did they come from? Well, turns out BIGDADDYRAMIREZ is the owner of Back in Time, a chain of game stores in the Seattle area, and like unicorns are want to do, they both walked in the other day. We just got off the phone with him, seeing as we've been waiting for this moment all our lives it seems, and learned that both copies will be making an appearance at PRGE this year.

Both copies, Back in Time's booth, Portland Retro Gaming Expo.

You are reading that right. And one copy will for sure be available for free play over the course of the weekend, we're being told. Which means we need to buy our tickets to Portland now. How can you miss a chance to play this unreleased gem?!?!
The SimCity Thread

Yesterday is one of those moments in life you wish you never had to experience. We found out that Jeff Kilgard (Jobber8742), a long-time member of the NA family, passed away suddenly in his sleep. Jeff leaves behind his wife, Shelby and his son, Mason. Jeff was a selfless guy, always making time to help his NA friends smile. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jeff's family and friends.

NA Campouts and gatherings will never be the same without you, Jeff -- you will be eternally missed. May you rest in peace.

A fundraiser has been set up, this drive is to help his wife and child with the expenses they are incurring in this horribly difficult time for them. Thank you for you generosity in helping the Kilgard family.
