I'll believe it when my Amazon order updates with an actual shipping estimate. No sweat though, I've waited this long and I'm locked in at $76 so even if it's a few more weeks its all good. Looking forward to not needing to hook up my old consoles and crappy HDMI upscaler when I get the itch to break into my archives.

Greetings, fellow CAG members! I've been a member for a long time now, but this is the first time I've had a work project that would qualify for its own deals thread!
During the day I'm a senior editor for Off Base Productions, a video game creative services and development house based in San Francisco, CA. You may not have heard our name before, but chances are you've seen our work. We've produced everything from instruction manuals to collector's edition packaging to strategy guides for most major publishers. Now, we're looking to create our own self-published line of premium strategy guides for awesome independent games starting with Mercenary Kings by Tribute Games (available now on PC via Steam Early Access).
But we need your help to get this line off to a strong start, and hope you'll consider backing our Kickstarter campaign.
If you haven't played Mercenary Kings yet, it's being developed by Tribute Games, creators of Wizorb and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. Mercenary Kings is a kind of Metal Slug meets Monster Hunter hybrid with awesome gameplay, a rich gun crafting system, and chock full of amazing Paul Robertson sprite work. The Mercenary Kings Master Codex aims to capture those 16-bit feels, serving as both a field guide to the game and an art book chronicling the development from pencil to pixel. To give you an idea of what we're shooting for, our primary inspirations are the NES/SNES era Nintendo Player's Choice guides and the Mother 3 Handbook. Check out our interior design samples below, created by Brady Hartel (lead UI designer/animator for Skullgirls):

Of course, what Kickstarter campaign would be complete without some sweet rewards? Well, we've got some pretty neat items lined up:
We've still got a ways to go before we hit our goal, but we're confident with a little bit of help we can make it happen! I'll be available in this thread to answer any questions you might have about the Kickstarter, creating traditional strategy guides, or mohawk dying tips.
Thanks for reading!
