yup! but i will fund it via kickstarter. It wont be just game in box but everything from digital + soundtrack with modern and 8bit songs and keychain! So I think it will be worth to buck. I was trying to find everything on my own but also i was yesterday talking with Yéti beacuse he have know-how and helped me with a few things :)

Just tried the complete version, you actually changed jump SFX :D But not the text one. You should update your demo.

Hi, I completetly agree about removing text sfx from Alex. I do believe it's important.

I am interested in physical edition.

You did such a great job.

Good news!. When a game is as important as Alex Kidd, we have very inside us its sounds, then it is impossible to focus when we hear its sfx in another game.

About the physical edition, Do you manage any timetable of the kickstarter campaing?.

Thank you!

Greetings from Spain.

Yes, I guess it is the best way of removing possible problems. There's nothing like feedback to improve the final result.

Yes, previously what i wanted is producing 100 copies of ToS in version how i imagine but its hard to promote this game so its a bit discoreages to fund it via kickstarter (fail ratio i think i too high). I see people asking me about physical copy but i dont know how many of them acualy is. Revo suggested me Ichigobankai and i need to contact him/them about ToS. I still want to do that deluxe version but now i considering two options:
1. make free preorder file on project page, this way if there will be small amount of people who are interesting with physical version, i will try to produce those copy by myself and then sell them when they will be ready.
2. if there will be alot of people i will ask them to pay for physical version upfront.

Yeah but is not that simple. Mostly beacuse i would like sell this for 60$ i think but if i do this via kickstarter i will cost more and if i do this via itch.io it will cost 120$ becuase 50% of that itch.io will took. So i will do this propably like preorders via itch but payments directly to paypal, outside that i will need collect everything and that also will take a time, risky action. I need to be 100000000% sure about everything and secure everything. It's still pandemic time so shipping also could be a part of the problem both from my to buyers and from manufacture of parts to me.
