Thanks Pascal, good to see you back here, I thought you had disappeared.

 

I worked very hard the last months, but now, it's done :) and yes, I'm back as you can see with my signature.

I'm wondering why Upmonsters needed an overlay if all you do is use the joystick.

because the overlays are always cool, no matter whether you need them for playing or you don't. All the Intellivision games have at least one version of the overlays:

- all original 125, made by the vendors back in the day or more recently by a famous collector and homebrewer now "retired",

- all the post-2000 releases, made by the original homebrewers or in a few cases later by other homebrewers.

 

Even if some games (125 or homebrews) didn't come originally with the overlays, sooner or later someone made them for the orphan games.

Upmonsters shouldn't be the only exception, should it?

Because they are awesome and fun and the world needs more of that. Also, if we don't have overlays then we let the terrorists win.

It's also traditional. The original Jetsons had overlays despite only using the disc. So it is something that goes back to the original Mattel releases.

I heard it has great international translations. ;)

Overlays are done and on the way to me, boxes are printed, being assembled now, and heading my way this weekend,

with any luck I can start mailing these out sometime next week,

depending on the whims of Canada Post, who are staging rotating strikes at various locations on various days.

Fingers crossed.

 

Only 4 sets left.

Second batch just went out in the mail including yours, Jay.

Waiting for 2 more boxes from Germany before I can send the last 15 or so orders. It always amuses me how boxes mailed simultaneously from Marc arrive on several different days here.

Has the game been release on cartridge yet? Also where will orders from it be taken (Atariage store or some other website)? Thanks.

Almost gone, I have 2 sets of upmonsters and 3 sets of Pumpkin Master and then that's it !

 

Very very unlikely I will print any more after this.

 

Message before you buy to make sure there are any left.

 

Thanks to everyone who bought these, hope you like them.

 

Some of you should have them by now, I am still waiting for one last box to arrive from Germany so I can send the last batch.

Just an update, most orders have been mailed out, some have already arrived,

but I am still waiting for the last box of upmonsters boxes from Germany to arrive here.

Marc mailed me 9 boxes, 7 arrived about 2 weeks ago, one more a few days ago, but the last one has still not arrived.

There were recently some postal strikes in Canada so I am still hoping it will arrive soon, there are about 20 outstanding orders.

If they don't arrive by Christmas I will see if I can get more printed but I am hoping it doesn't come to that.

Thanks for your patience.

 

Cheers, Steve

Beautifully enough, my boxes and copy of Pumpkin Master happened to arrive at the same time today. Looking forward to playing both games over the holidays since I won't have to travel for them this year.

 

The boxes look amazing, Steve. As always, your work is impeccable as is Marc's :thumbsup:
