    Some investor named Greg Pabich has acquired the rights to Cheetahmen and is trying to raise $65,000 to "fix the game" of its infamous Lv4 glitch (where you can't finish the game) and release a limited edition NES cart (subtitled The "Lost" Levels) and expensive merch.

    Background: http://en.wikipedia....2#Cheetahmen_II
    Kickstarter: http://www.kickstart...cently_launched
    (please do not fund this fraud)

    You're probably thinking "this is a joke " right. Wrong. The project has already raised about a grand and the promo video even features the Angry Video Game Nerd (and his blessing).

    My question is: Why does this game need to be fixed?
    A: http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/778/
    It already has been fixed! :rofl:

    Anyway, there are more important problems in the world, but I hate the thought of people getting scammed trying to fix a terrible game that was already fixed -- for free.

    Can't ROM hack an NES cart into existence.

    I would think (hope) that a rom-hacked collector's cart wouldn't have any sentimental value and wouldn't be worth the money. But my hopes are probably in vain given the rate at which this thing is being funded. It's doubled since the OP.

    People are stupid.

    This.

    I would buy a cart of this. My bff and I would play the game until it died. Then I'd just buy another one.

    I just can't wait to see the romof
    Noooooooooooo!!!! (I've lost) :rofl:

    But seriously, I can't wait to see if this shyster uses the homebrew patch instead of paying the original programmer (like he said he would). It'll be interesting thing to investigate when the game gets dumped. :P

    I'd offer to race you to do the first hex comparison, but you usually beat me to that kind of crap anyways.

    Next project: Cheetahmen Remake :P

    Can't see myself buying this. Specially since I never really pay attention and never played it.
    Doesn't look like I want to anyway.

    Heck i'd be willing to try a repro of the patched .nes file, i just finished making an Final Fantasy III repro and have plenty of eprom's left.
    I would just need to know what donor cart could be used.....
    EDIT: actually looking into it this might end up requiring a custom PCB, don't have that many resources, though someone could maybe hack it to a different mapper...

    Meh both Cheetahmen games sucked hard. I have the first game on the Action 52 and have a non functioning copy of CM2. Both games did suck badly so I think I won't drop any money on this.

    This is the stupidest Kickstarter I've seen since the "bronycon" documentary.

    What the hell? People will donate $5,000 to this, but won't donate 2000,00€ to fund a Vita devkit? At least with the latter, your money might actually accomplish something.

    People are stupid.

    Wait, I sounded mad?

    I think the whole Cheetahmen deal is hilarious. The fact people are actually funding this is even more hilarious.

    Did a vita devkit kickstarter actually happen?

    That person be better off commenting on it rather than changing the wiki. (Even if it seem that you have to give at least a dollar to do so, so it really wouldn't be worth it.)
