NES Oddities Kickstarter Project Update & Date for the Definitive Complete SNES

To say things have been busy in the past few weeks is a grave understatement! I went from shipping out VGBS Season 1 to fully assembling and shipping out three different releases of Black Box Challenge. Some of you may have seen the live-streams that I did as I assembled the carts, but it took lots and lots of time.

Ironically, right as I finished all of that up, the NES Compendiums arrived in the Warehouse! 24 hours later and 100% of the backers have their books in the mail! However, things still aren’t 100% done with the project as I still have a couple specialty items to get out there.

NES Compendium

First off the Best of NES Homebrew Box Set has the boxes in the mail currently. Once I get those, I’ll be putting that all together and shipping them out to backers. All of those backers will be getting their books separately as well. Fortunately, I have all the games ready, so it shouldn’t take me long once the boxes arrive.

Next up is the Leather Covers by Artisan Leather. Those have been paid for and ordered. So whenever they are finished and arrive, I’ll ship them out to those backers.

Finally, the gigantic 1000 page NES Leatherbound Tome. This process is going to take awhile as I had to get the books shipped to me, then I have to ship them all together to the bindery. They then have a 1-2 month turnaround to get them rebound and gilded in gold. This will be the biggest Tome to date and I can’t wait to see what it looks like!

Of course, there is no rest for Hagen’s Alley as I’m launching the Definitive Edition of The Complete SNES on Kickstarter on 7 October around 1100 EST. That will be available at and you can set a reminder for the launch! I have some awesome stuff coming with this one and I’m definitely keeping it much more simplistic this time around!

Let me know your thoughts and if you have any questions!
