27th of April – BEAUTIFUL!


You know what that is?

Its a brass image of Karl Quappe! Used to emboss an image on cardboard.

Today was the day that FINALY some actual boxes arrived. You may remember that I wanted to do two different sets of boxes. The one already seen on Facebook – that one hasn’t arrived yet – otherwise I would also have posted some fresh images.

But today I got hold of the deluxe version. Five handmade boxes, in rememberence of the Protector boxes done by Alex Herbert.

Five absolutly unique boxes – enjoy the images!

Each one will come with a cartridge of the color matching the boxes. Instruction manual and overlay (which I also have not gotten yet).

And before anyone asks – I have NOT decided what to do with these boxes. Only two things are set:

a) I will keep one box for myself

b) if Helmut Müller organizes another “Vector Wars” this year – one of them will be a price or special price!

    Oh Yum! As a set I think this Karl Quappe! set is at the top with the other great titles as having the most distinctive and cool packaging to date. The game is also looking great.

    I would love to get one of your boxed versions – I’d gladly pay for a boxed game. FYI I work at Konami so it’s got some extra sentimental value to me.
    Please let me know if possible- no worries either way.

      sorry I don’t sell “hardware” (or software versions for that matter) of Karl Quappe. Once I release the ROM as public domain – I am sure someone will do a release on card though.
