Dutch name "De avonturen van Sherlock Holmes"

I sent you the back text, but I just realized there's no back text on videopac master strategy games... So, when I get substantial text from the instruction, I'll send it to you, ok? And please ignore that back text...

Thanks again

I thought I could give a break on the Sherlock Holmes project and post my new finished project that follows the name on the topic. I've finished the art for my The Voice box and I'm thinking about assemble it by myself, since I can't find the right place to print or even the right cardboard. I'm posting the link for the imgur album and soon I'll post picture sof the first attempt on the box itself.
Thanks.

The The Voice boxes are ready!! Both big and mini. As I said before I decided to go full guerilla style on the box so, instead of looking for a place to print it all in one piece, I printed each face separately. First I assembled the box itself with the cardboard. Just plain, with no art. Then I glued each side and glue black tape on the edges. I never thought it would work, so I didn't take any pictures of the process, but it turned out really great and I'm very happy with my box. I consider this project done. Now on to the styrofoam part.

Here are the pics.

The O2 looks really good.

I am wondering why you want to create a Videopac variant, the last boxed games was not released in a Videopac variant. To stay true to O2/VP I would say you should only create the O2 variant.

If you want to create a VP box, then it should look very different - google videopac 41 and videopac 42 for examples.

Keep up the good work.

Thank you minodk, that's exactly the kind of tip/ help I need. The Videopac idea was to give options for those in Europe who would want some variant, but it's not something certain yet, maybe we can put as an option on the time of the release. I'll try and make a different version like the one of The Quest (with a different color background, for instance, then you can continue with your inputs.
As always, I really appreciatte the comments and ideas, this is what will make this release a worthy one.

Hello everybody, I'm coming out of the shadows again to give you a deserved update on The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. For personal reasons (good, excelent reasons, I had a new girl born 3 months ago) it's been really difficult to focus on the project so I can help at home on my free time. But things are starting to return to normality and I'm hoping to return to the project real soon. Other thing is that Rafa was finishing hist thesis and I felt I was taking too much of his time and wanted to leave him alone. And yet another reason was that I got a 3d printer to make the chips and tokens, because the idea was to make exclusive and personalized tokens and chips for the game and it's been hell to pay... For some reason, I can't get the small pieces to finish even in a medium quality so I can make them better on post production, but I'm getting a new printer and will try with it. Big pieces are fine. I've been the last 3 months trying to figure out the reason, but no success.
Anyway, the reason we've been quiet is all my fault and I'm here to apologize and say that the project is in full speed yet (we have almost everything ready to start production) but it stopped for the reasons I mentioned. And it was all my fault.
Thanks for your patience and for your time.

Thanks Janzi, I actually don't know what sleep is anymore, but I remember it's something nice that feels good right? But the joy of having two beautiful little girls (the other one is 3 years old) really pys for everything else...

Nice to know it Rafa, and how did it go?
I think the next step for us is to meet in person. I just want to wait until my new printer arrives so I have some stuff to show you and then we make the final decisions. Maybe mid september.

IŽm not sure yet. My expectation is to take a final test next week (09/16), so we can schedule a meeting for some Sherlock tests.
