Hello everyone!

 

The release of my adventure game Elansar for the Atari Jaguar is near.

I just received 100 PCB flash cartridge for Jaguar :)

 

However, I run a small logistical problems, and so it would be easier for me to offer the game, on cartridge, but without a complete cardboard box like the original games.

It is indeed very pleasant for collectors, but it requires a fairly substantial amount of work, which greatly increase the final price and add postal mail problem.

 

So I set up here a small survey to gather the opinions of potential buyer :)

 

Please answer seriously! :)

I have similar plans for future Reboot stuff... carts "for gamers" - cart, shell, label and no more. RGCD could then offer the same game in an RGCD standard case (consistent with their C64 game releases and almost the exact same height as our DVD-boxed CD games). If someone like Gaztee can then offer Atari-style boxes at a later date then that's even better but, as Orion says, there's just too much effort required in doing it all ourselves.

 

My vote is for a cart, shell and label for Elansar with an option of a box at a later date (the same kind of thing people did with past cart-only releases).

I would prefer the whole box, manual, etc., especially for cartridge releases.

 

But I will still buy this either way.

I'll buy it either way, but if after I buy the cart only version a boxed version is offered, I'd like the ability to purchase the box.

I am in for one copy, I dont care if its released with a box or not, but I have to agre to racer: If there is a box later it would be nice to get the chance to buy it.

Same here, boxed version is preffered, but I'm hoping if it's cart and manual only that gaztee will make one.

$55 is about my limit these days for games, honestly I love boxes but just getting to play the game on a real cart is good enough for me (Maybe getting a box alter if that option presents itself)

I'm always looking homebrews (be it 2600 or jaguar)

I would be interested in the cart box wouldn't be great for me.

couldn't just do dvd box cover and put the cart in the dvd box I seen it done with 2600 games.

Clam shell cases are fine for me, as stated, they are the same height as DVD cases, and aren't fragile like original boxes. Yes, I like releases that have original boxes, but I also like the clam shell cases, as long as Jaguar cartridges fit, and they are no taller than DVD. I'd rather not have just cartridge only, with no container, like B&C, that is really cheap, but I'll take the games how I can get them. In the end, collectors will collect a game if it has a box or not, and if it never came with a box, then it's mint without a box to worry about, and if a custom box is made later by the end user, that's just bonus.

 

If it's actually cheaper to have clam shell cases and a jaguar cartridge properly fits in it, with DVD-style cover art, than it is to have cardboard boxes made, then I think all publishers should use them for their original releases, they keep much better anyway.

Just cartridge is good with me, I'd just chuck the insert and flatten the box and stick it somewhere in the loft anyway. Definitely want to snag one of these once available.

 

Why would you chuck the protective insert when it can be flattened too? It's not CIB without the insert, just cartridge with box.

I kind of like the clamshell case idea myself. Cheaper to produce and offers superior protection. Sounds like a win-win to me...

I'm really surprised at the results so far - I always assumed a cart just -had- to be in a cardboard box with cardboard insert and black & white manual to be accepted... seems that's not the case.

Similar poll Orion is running on yaro has option one 8, option two 1 and option three 2...

 

Added to the above gives 24:1:10, option 1 is ahead by some margin so far.

But that cardboard insert takes up space that could be used by something else, I live in quite a small flat so packaging generally gets thrown away. I'm never going to use the card insert so it serves no purpose keeping it.

 

Whenever I buy games anyway I prefer cartridge only thanks to AtariAge providing digital access to the manuals.

Despite these polls, whichever way you choose to do this the community will support it to the best of its ability.

Exactly - I didn't vote because there's no "Yes, I'll buy it, case or no case!" :)

If I am buying a cartridge I would prefer a box as it make the cartridge easier to store and helps keep the dust of the contacts however I liked Myst and this looks similar so I would buy it unboxed if that is the only option.
