USB Retro Cassette Collectors Sequence


We spoke to Rob Hewson with the final 2 days to go on the brand new Kickstater for the USB Retro Collectors Sequence.

This time The Thriller of Woolley Mountain – Collectors USB Cassette

The USB Cassette Collectors Sequence is a restricted bodily run sequence for retro collectors. Every collectors USB cassette launch encompasses a chosen Neo-Retro sport, DRM-free, for each PC and Mac. 

Q: What’s the Collectors USB Cassette sequence?

It is a restricted bodily run sequence for retro collectors. Every collectors USB cassette launch encompasses a chosen Neo-Retro sport, DRM-free, for each PC and Mac. The wonderful thing about the USB cassette format, apart from it slotting seamlessly into your present cassette assortment, is that there’s a tonne of storage for additional bonus options to be included too. We’ve added video documentaries, graphic novels, soundtrack albums, retro journal archives and naturally a choice of indie sport demos to take pleasure in.

Q: How did the concept for it come about?

It occurred in two levels. Firstly, we noticed how individuals reacted to the Hyper Sentinel USB cassette, which was a reward tier for the video games Kickstarter marketing campaign. Secondly, we labored with Strictly Restricted to do a PS4 boxed run for Hyper Sentinel. That was when the lightbulb went off – individuals love the nostalgia ingredient of the USB cassette, and other people need to protect their favorite video games bodily, so we realised we may work with different builders to do a complete sequence of curated collectors USB cassettes.

Q: Why do every launch via Kickstarter?

Firstly, we’ve had a fantastic expertise of utilizing Kickstarter to fund our e book, and Hyper Sentinel, so we’ve obtained a unbelievable neighborhood on the platform. Secondly, the unit price for the USB Cassettes is kind of excessive in comparison with say a DVD or BluRay run, so we have to assure a minimal order amount earlier than we decide to manufacturing. Lastly, we’re massive believers in working with the neighborhood to outline the way forward for the sequence, and Kickstarter is a superb platform to actively contain backers into the method. For instance, backers of launch #001 have been in a position to vote for his or her favorite indie demo, and the winner grew to become the headline sport for launch #003. In addition they voted for his or her favorite genres and beneficial builders we should always contact, all of which impacts the curation course of for future releases.


Q: What number of video games do you’ve signed up for the sequence, and what’s coming subsequent?

We’ve introduced as much as launch #005, with Bard’s Gold and Titan Assaults! being the primary two campaigns in 2020. Behind the scenes, we’ve signed or are in superior discussions for a bunch of different video games taking us all the way in which into 2021, which will probably be introduced sooner or later.

Q: Are you able to speak us via the method of constructing, operating and fulfilling every marketing campaign? We need to make the entire course of as straightforward as doable for the builders we’re working with, so all they should do is present us with art work, screenshots, a trailer and the builds themselves and we handle the remaining.

First, we structure the inlay and label art work for the cassette and get sign-off from the developer, then we order samples so we will see what the ultimate cassette will appear to be and take images and movies for the marketing campaign. Then we construct the marketing campaign web page itself, and once more be certain that our improvement associate is pleased with it, earlier than placing collectively the marketing campaign video.

At launch, we promote the marketing campaign to our earlier backers, and naturally, we proceed promotional efforts all through the marketing campaign on social media and dealing with our PR associate.As soon as the marketing campaign has completed, we collect collectively the sport construct, and all of the recordsdata for the bonus function, and order the cassette inventory which comes again to us shrink-wrapped and able to pack with delivery packages. We pack up every one, together with a leaflet selling the following marketing campaign within the sequence and ship them off to backers. That may sound straightforward, however it’s lots of work, so I’m very fortunate to have a supportive spouse to assist with that. Our purpose is at all times to start delivery inside 4-6 weeks of a marketing campaign ends, so backers have acquired their cassettes earlier than the following marketing campaign kicks off.

Q: How annoying is the Kickstarter marketing campaign?It’s really loads much less annoying than our earlier campaigns for the e book and for Hyper Sentinel as a result of we’re aiming for a comparatively low quantity to hit our minimal viable run and we don’t have to go away and write or develop the core product as soon as the marketing campaign has ended. The sport already exists, so it’s a case of getting the whole lot collectively and delivery it off.

Q: What are your ambitions for the Collectors USB Cassette sequence and the way can individuals get entangled?

Our ambition is to maintain working with our unbelievable neighborhood to construct a sequence they’re proud to show of their assortment – there’s definitely nothing else fairly prefer it. We’re getting plenty of curiosity from builders because the sequence continues to develop, so with the assistance of our backers we hope to maintain attracting superb video games to the label and to provide the world one thing distinctive.
