Greetings all! Excited to announce that I will be running a booth for Dungeons and DoomKnights at the Midwest Gaming Classic Convention . The event takes place next week from Nov 5th to 7th, 2021 at the Wisconsin Center, Milwaukee, WI.
So if you are in the area and would like to meet me, please stop by! I will be running the Dungeons and DoomKnights booth in the "Future Classics" area. In that space you will also find many creators from the NES Maker community and other retro systems. Hyped to finally meet them in person.
Amongst the creators there will also be Frank Westphal, who is printing our boxes, instruction manual, and other packaging materials as you read this update. He is well known for his work on other major new NES game releases.
The creation of this new true 8-bit NES game that runs on actual hardware and also your computer w/ an emulator has been a fun, challenging, and quite long journey. We are at the finish line. As you read this the (hopefully final) release candidate of the game is available for download by backers and anyone who late-backs the Dungeons and DoomKnights via BackerKit.
I am excited to demo our creation at the convention... and show the rest of the world what we have been up to. It is important to note, that I WILL NOT be selling the game at the convention. We will be shipping physical carts to backers before they are available anywhere else.
We have been completely sold out of our allotment of carts and boards for a while now. If you have been waiting to order the physical cart, or upgrade to collector's edition, then please know we will be re-opening pre-orders on backerkit soon. The extra 1,000 units we ordered should be arriving at the same time as our packaging, and other pieces (Late Nov/Early Dec).
Grab the final (hopefully) Dungeons and DoomKnights ROM from Backerkit and give it a whirl. Also, please accept this as my 100% permission to stream this version of the game.
P.S. Hope to see you at the convention. If you are going, please let me know here in the comments or on twitter. @ArtixKrieger
