A brand new NES game celebrates 100 years of independence of Finland - Perkele! Suomi 100 vuotta

A new game for the 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) celebrates 100 years anniversary of Finland's entertainment. Perkele! Suomi 100 vuotta is released after over twenty years since the last official NES games was released.

The game runs on a real physical NES cartridge and comes complete with three different games themed around stereotypes of the Finnish culture and state of mind. The game requires a real Nintendo Entertainment System console as well as the light pistol that is famous for games like Duck Hunt.

The game comes from the AasiPelit company, who has released similar retro games in the past. The crew of three programmers have created the game and so far over 200 physical game cartridges. The game is currently sold out on the official website, but the company is investigating manufacturing more cartridges.
