Got this on email.  I'm nowhere near New York, but for anyone who is...

Launch Party
If you're in New York, we're having a launch party this Saturday, April 18th, at the Babycastles Gallery. There will be multiple instances of Star Versus running, copies for sale, music, refreshments, and fun for all! Full details:

Babycastles
137 West 14 St
New York, New York
8pm - 12pm, Saturday, April 18th
$7 - $11 sliding scale
https://www.facebook.com/events/912785752097513/

Shipping - More Copies Soon
For those of you who ordered a copy of Star Versus, they begin shipping this week. They'll be going out in order of when they were placed, so it may take a little longer if you weren't one of the first. We hope you're looking forward to receiving your copy soon!

If you missed out on the initial run, we're working on getting supplies, and should have more carts for sale available soon. Keep checking our mailing list, twitter feed, and website for news on when they're for sale.

That's pretty cool :113:  You don't see many launch parties for retro games!

Looks really great!  I can't help but think of that old SNK arcade shooter Vanguard and it also reminds me of Star Control on the old PC systems.  Very good looking game!  I may have to pick one up!!

The first wave is gone.  I was able to order it and I'm waiting for it.  They will be having more available soon, though.

More updates related to the game.  The article in Popular Science is a cool thing...

Popular Mechanics
We were recently featured in Popular Mechanics's culture section! Contained within is some bits of interview with 2 of the creators, giving some insight into what went into making a new NES game. Have a read: http://www.popularmechanics.com/culture ... ideo-game/

Behind the Scenes
In addition, Andrew Reitano (aka Batsly Adams), who manufactured the hardware for Star Versus, has made a blog post revealing some of the details behind his process. Included are a bunch of photos of the raw hardware before it ends up inside its plastic shell. Check it out! http://www.batslyadams.com/2015/07/star ... ooter.html
