There were two Konami games on Disk System which were not released at retail, and only available as re-writes via Disk System Writer Kiosks – The Goonies and Twinbee. After much searching I managed to get my hands on a single disk with both games on it.
Disk Writer games came with a nice official printed disk label and fold-out paper manual.
But it doesn’t match the rest of the otherwise beautifully consistent Konami Disk System catalogue.
Since FDS inserts are just thin cards, I decided I could make up a reproduction retail release for Goonies, based on the cartridge box.
I scanned the nicer quality image from the cart label, and got going in photoshop.
For the logo, black looked a little bland, so I took inspiration from Goonies 2 and Akumajou Dracula, and went with red, using the original black logo from the cart release as a drop-shadow. I used Akumajou Dracula and Exciting Basketball as templates for the basic formatting of the disk case label and outer-box label.
I had it professionally printed on 200gsm satin printing paper, and here’s the result! Goonies on side A, Twinbee on side B, so Goonies gets main billing.
Looks great in disk-case format and full case format!
Now Goonies/Twinbee can take its place with the rest of the Konami FDS set!
And I can finally play Goonies with additional load times!
