We are off to a great start on Kickstarter after our Classic Game Fest appearance this past weekend. Thank you so much to everyone who stopped by our booth to check out the BitLounger XL. We had a great time meeting so many awesome gamers and getting their feedback and first impressions. It was a humbling experience watching so many people get excited about our product, and having numerous show attendees bringing their friends by to check out the system. Needless to say, we’ve got just over 3 weeks left to reach our funding goal and are roughly 30% there!

It’s only fitting that Nintendo would reveal details (albeit few) on their new system the day that we wrap up our Kickstarter. Coincidence? Actually, yes… Congrats to Nintendo on the Switch, it looks like a promising system.
For those who missed out on our Kickstarter project we do have pre-order available on our website, http://bitlounger.com/product/bitlounger-16bitsn/. You can use code: FREESHIPKS for free domestic shipping through 11/30/2016. We plan on adding multi-packs shortly. If that is something you are interested in and do not see please let us know and we will promptly update for you.
Mass production shipping has also been confirmed and it looks like we should be able to fill our backer pledges around the 28th or 29th of November. We’ve got everything ready to go and are just awaiting our shipment, so luckily we’re in the home stretch and right on target for everything we outlined in our campaign. With that in mind please stay tuned: we have another great project lined up and we know you are going to love it.
After 1 full day into our Kickstarter campaign we were able to get 41% funded! With 28 days left we are incredibly confident we’ll be able to cross the finish line where we need to be. We’ve reached out to numerous blogs and retail sites that we’ve bought from and/or followed in the past and have received tremendous coverage and support in raising awareness. It’s clear there’s a need for a premium retro video game storage solution. We’ll keep you posted as we progress with packaging designs and new information.
