    This is the kind of stuff I want to see happening as opposed to nonsense like the Retro VGS.

    Precisely. I rather have homebrew released for existing consoles than that.

    Yeah, it looks like an SNES version of either Red Zone or Super Thunder Blade. Very impressed

    I'd be curious to see if they're going to go back in and maybe try and add stuff to what work Techtoy already put in. 3D Realms could probably help out since they recently re-launched the brand

    Looks like Pilot Wings with guns.

    Just keep in mind that this is the same company that has been securing the rights to many games for a while now without actually publishing much.

    Hopefully they don't horde a bunch of complete or near complete games and prevent them from getting published at all.

    It's a clever use of Mode 7 and from the small snippet of captured footage it looks relatively good. The video doesn't show enough to really gauge how good the game is though. I would still like to see them publish another video featuring more of the game.

    That is a possibility but the the person behind Piko Interactive has taken the time to post here several times and he, Eleazar Galindo, has stated that they are working with developers to fix some of the issues with respect to certain titles (i.e. Jim Power The Lost Dimension). The one thing I'm not really happy about is the price of a complete copy of the game; the price of the game is already expensive and then you have to stomach the cost of shipping ($16.00).

    These days most developers are tempted by the collector craze and they've priced their product at a level that is quite expensive. The problem is that even though the pool of potential retro game buyers is huge, the price point can be a turn off for most people. You really have to have a exceptional product in order to charge $60.00 for a game.

    In my industry, I price point my services at a level lower than my competitors, focusing on volume. Over time, I've gained clientele through the exceptional service I provide and get more clients through word of mouth compared to advertising. Focusing on volume has alot of benefits. first it gets your product and service out to a larger pool of customers. If you are extremely good at the level of service you provide (or you produce a higher calibre product), not only do increase your chances of obtaining a repeat customer, they will refer you more business through word of mouth or social media. Second, if you price your product at a level that is competitive, you will make alot more revenue than if you priced it at an excessive level.

    Even if a developer fixed the issues in Nightmare Circus, it's still a crappy game. In my opinion it would be a total waste of time and energy on a title that doesn't deserve to exist.

    If people are ready to spend good money on games as terrible as cheetahmen 2, this game is a masterpice in comparison. The graphics are beautiful, maybe the gameplay is not your cup of tea, but I would buy it

    They have 4 games available to buy and are working on 28 more. 20 of which are scheduled to be released by the end of next year. Those numbers were difficult for the biggest publishers to handle bitd. Even more so now, a publisher saturating the market with games becomes their own competition.
