I had to idea what this was so I had to look it up.

Just watch this:

Even that supposedly new Cheetahmen game was just crap from Action 52 with sprites changed around to cash in on the collector scene. Cheetahmen 2 is just the same game it was before with a glitch fixed that other people had already fixed a while ago.

I mean to anyone out there who really wants Cheetahmen 2, go and donate your $60 if you must, but from the very beginning Action 52 and Cheetahmen 2 were never designed to be quality video games, just money grabbing cons.

It's the same crap now, just from the angle of "it's so bad it's good," instead of pretending to be a decent product.

But in my opinion it's not "so bad it's good." It's just bad.

I really don't think anyone is trying to pretend that this game is good. It's pretty much common knowledge that it's complete crap. Some people, including me, just enjoy that stuff.

I agree 100%. I am not sure why people keep repeating each other to tell us. We know. We still want it. Though I do enjoy the high and mighty attitude that they say it with.

If anyone is interested, the Cheetahmen 2 Kickstarter just surpassed the goal of 65,000 with 11 days still to go. I could definitely see this going above 100, 000, but the good news is that the game will actually see production. I honestly can't wait to hold a brand new, boxed copy of this game in my hands!

I think the question here is just how far are collectors willing to go when it comes to obtaining rare games. I can understand if it were an forgotten gem of a nes game or a unheard of famicom rpg with a translation patch.

But we all know the Cheetamen games never were anything but badly designed platformers incomplete and honestly just a mess of a series.

So why pay for something you know is bad and bear in mind i like games that are so bad they are good i understand that way of thinking i even own a copy of Bible Adventures for the nes.

But the reality is mostly that game just gathers dust i may get a chance to show it off for the yeah they really made this crap but then it just goes back to the shelf.

The diffrence is i payed next to nothing for it and compared to Cheetamen II a much more playable game. Not good by any means but at least there are brief chances to have fun with it.

So is Cheetamen II worth the novelty of owning a game that everyone knows is crap maybe a rare piece of crap but still its crap. Well its your 60$ or possibly more depending how much you want posters and stuff.

It's just the answers make no sense.

I can appreciate the irony in owning Cheetamen 2 but for 60$ the joke is on the buyer.

He's done what he wanted with it, I appreciate that. Some people want it, a lot don't. That's just having opinion. I don't want anything to do with it, but if you do, that's cool. Kickstarter is doing some decent things with the indie gaming industry. But then you have this:

One guy has made over $10,000 on an RPG Maker game. And it looks like an RPG Maker game.
