Nox Archaist Kickstarter Campaign Announced

Nox Archaist - Kickstarter to launch in September 2017

At our KansasFest 2017 presentation we announced plans for a Kickstarter campaign to produce a collector's edition of Nox Archaist. The 6502 Workshop team is now pleased to announce that the campaign is scheduled to launch in September 2017.

This is an opportunity to get your hands on all the cool physical stuff we are creating to go along with Nox Archaist.  Our goal is to recapture the hands on gaming experience of the 1980s classics that we grew up with.

The Nox Archaist collector's edition will be available either on floppy disks for real Apple II hardware or on a flash drive for emulators on MAC-PC. The game will also run on real and emulated hard drives with ProDOS installed.  You can choose to receive the game in a box with custom artwork or in an old school plastic bag.

Below you can check out the game box and some of the cool stuff that will be available with Nox Archaist through Kickstarter. The photos show prototypes; there may be a few changes to the the artwork and materials of the final versions.

  1. Ouah, all the "goodies" are amazing!
    How did you produce the coins? And how did you find a company that can print canvas drawings? great job done!

    1. Thanks for your enthusiasm and encouragement! If you email me at I am happy to share what we know about canvas printing and coin production.

  2. I'm buying as soon as it's ready. Boxed Edition. Is there any chance the game will support Mockingboard (or dare I ask) Passport MIDI?

    1. Thanks for your interest! Your support is very much appreciated! To answer your questions; mockingboard - maybe. We’re investigating the viability. There are no plans currently to support Passport MIDI.
