Since my last post, I've jumped headlong into homebrews.  Right now my list is mostly NES homebrews, but I have several 2600 and 7800 carts I want.  Here's my list so far

 

Atari 2600

Juno First

 

NES

Star Versust

Haunted Halloween 85

Haunted Halloween 86

Germ Squashers CIB

Blow Em Out

Beerslinger

Super Pitfall 30th Anniversary (hack)

 

SNES

Astrohawk

Added to my collection since my last post (#239)

Did the price of the Hozer homebrew carts include royalties for the homebrew authors?

Nice!  You've been busy.  What do you think of the ET Book Cart and The Realm of NO!

I haven't popped either of those in yet.

You likely know the answer to that more than me. but I would seriously doubt hozer pays anyone for their work. I would hope the stuff from Good Deal Games pays out royalties but I'm not privy to that info either.

AFAIK, like every other source (except one), Good Deal Games pays royalties.

 

I really wonder how people tick who know about this situation, still continue to buy from there (especially homebrews) and then go public with that.

I've only made one or two orders from hozer (years ago), most of my hozer made carts are from Good Deal Games or from members here in the marketplace. hozer carts are not even on my want list but I'd rather take them out of circulation than have more made.

OK, that's different. I assumed that you had bought them directly.

 

But are you sure that you don't create additional demand that way?

maybe, maybe not....i hope not anyways. I still think it's a better option than dealing with hozer directly.

I am curious to ask/learn: what would be a better option? Are those games still available through other avenues? Thanks!

 

Edit: Oh, I think all of those games are Ebvision games, available through AA!

 

I saw boxed copies of the ebvision collection for 700 dollars. Wow! I would never guess they were expensive, especially Merlin's Walls :P

In my book is Scramble definitely a homebrew, but not Cat Trax.
