Micro Mages (NES) kickstarter

This one's interesting.  There aren't many good 4-player NES games worth playing, but this looks pretty fun.  I love their video on how they optimized the graphics used in the game
The whole game is 40kb!

What a wonderful project.  The how-to video is awesome.

Using that remaining byte to shift the level tiles blew my mind. Brilliant solution for the level mirroring problem!

This game looks awesome, but it's crazy that they can't deliver the supposedly finished rom until April.

I don't believe the claim that it would devalue the carts. Collectors are buying the carts. I would wager that collectors don't care if you can already play the game via flash carts.

Plus, shipping fees on digital downloads, WTF?
