Upside Down Retrospective Madnes

Update

It's just begun, but what a great year so far! 

Having a bunch of friends that have had successful Kickstarters has helped keep up my aspirations throughout this process.  A special thanks goes to Shelby Cinca, of Swedish Columbia and co-creator of successful Kickstarter funded board game Zoneplex. A brother of Hardcore, we've been friends since meeting at the Black Cat in D.C., 2004.  Without his help, the Goofy Foot Kickstarter wouldn't be where it is today.  My initial direction for the Kickstarter was chaotic and confusing.  He set me straight, helping me tighten the focus of my project.

For the last 2 months Shelby has pulled together the best SynthWave artists from here in Los Angeles across to the vast boreal forests and glaciated mountains of Sweden, collaborating to create a body of work that far exceeds anything I had imaged when we first discussed the idea. 

"We're not worthy!"

With more than 13 tracks, this compilation includes new tracks from my favorite artists Scattle and El Huervo, who you all know from the Hotline Miami soundtracks.  Dude! I can't even express how rad this collection is, so many gems.  Tracks from Llamatronik and Swan Sex that sound like they were pulled from our favorite 80's classic movies and others from Street War and Ratvader that are retro video game ready. \m/

With new artwork by underground comic artistChris Faccone, the magnitude of awesome doesn't stop with the music.  The cover art has gone from a "Yeah!" to a "%&#@ Yeah!"

Kickstarter is a platform for exposure and I hope by attracting you with an alternative NES controller, I have also turned you on to some of my favorite artists over at Swedish Columbia.  Also checkout Rockhart Clothing, DESVERMIN, and Moto's Glass, all who have given their time and passions to help support the Goofy Foot.

Things are getting exciting!

Salutations… I hope you all are having an amazing Holiday Season. With less than two weeks to go, I'm on "Crunch Time", trying my best to get the word out. Any exposer you can pass to your friends and family would be so awesome!

The design of the Goofy Foot has been upgraded! Yeah! Many of you agreed functionality wins over appearance, so I have designed a small switch on top of the Goofy Foot controller, give you the ability to switch between a B/A or A/B action button setup. The B/A setup allows for games, like Punch Out, establishing: B - Left Jab and A - Right Jab.  However, playing a platformer like Super Mario Bros., is a lot more comfortable in the A/B mode.  It allows you to run/fire with the tip of your thumb and jump by rolling back your thumb, what we are all used to.

I've also recently partnered with Hyperkin, so that I can get you playing Goofy Foot on your NES Classic with their new adapter.

I wish everyone a safe and exciting New Years. Here's to getting Goofy in 2017! Woo Hoo!

Kickstarter Update.

Three weeks before PRGE I decided to start TotalRadNES and go forward with the Goofy Foot project.  This controller needed to be developed beyond a mod, making it the right way.  With help from a good friend at DEVERMIN, we had a logo, a website, a box design, t shirts, stickers, and 10,000 flyers all within 2 weeks.  With this kind of progress I figured November 11th would be an easy target for launching the Kickstarter campaign.   I had already had the circuit designed, laid out, and tested, what could be harder than that? 

As I got further along I decided I'd like to push back the Kickstarter until I was at a point, where I could feel comfortable setting a solid financial goal.  The last thing I want is to fail by running out of money after the project has been funded or overcharging everyone that wants to support.  My solution has been to finish out the design process, having all components of the Goofy Foot ready for manufacturing.    With the final design of the plastic housing and circuit board, I can get accurate manufacturing bids, letting me price the product fairly.

With this extra time, I have been working with Swedish Columbia, Rockhart Clothing, and Moto's Glass to bring some seriously awesome exclusive items to the campaign.  It won't be too far off now.  Your patience will be rewarded.
