Timewalk Games, creators of gold DuckTales NES cart, shuts down

S. Prell, @SamPrell

Timewalk Games, a company that specialized in reproducing classic video games from the pre-HD era, has blown the dust off a cartridge for the last time. For those unfamiliar with Timewalk's work, you may remember them as the company that crafted the golden DuckTales NES cartridge.

The Timewalk website has been all but cleared of any signs of inhabitance; a farewell message is all you'll find on the main page. It reads in part, "Unfortunately, we no longer have time to continue forward with the Timewalk Games project. Unfortunately those of us involved with Timewalk have very busy lives outside of Timewalk (Jobs, Family, etc.) and although we love doing what we do, we cannot keep up with it anymore."

While Timewalk served a niche market, this nonetheless puts a damper on would-be old-school collectors, and we wish them the best in their future endeavors.

[Thanks, Scott!]
