Finding little enthusiasm over the past few months, for various reasons. Of course my new job has been a major factor but also I have a few new interests not the least of which is building an underwater robotic submersible. Since I have so little free time, it's obvious that '2600 Boulder Dash™ is not likely to make a Christmas release. And so to take this one OFF my "things I have to do" list, I've decided the best thing would be to put this project officially "on indefinite hold". Sorry to disappoint.
Cheers

You might save a little time if you built your robotic submersible above the water, then moved it underwater when you are done.

Well, you could at least repost the videos around Christmas :lol:

A robotic submersible sounds like a fun thing to build. I have to look into this :)

Homestar Runner RPG and now this.......

It is always the coolest games that get put on "indefinite hold".

I understand though.

Man, if only it was a simple as holding up a lighter, like at a concert...

/me holds up a lighter...

although, I'm happier with a 'hold' than a 'cancel' :-)

Andrew,

Good luck in your robotic journey!

I just want to say "thank you" for not killing the project and rather putting it on indefinite hold. When this gets released, it will be the greatest game ever achieved on the 2600 IMHO. My heart isn't broken... just yearning for 2600 Boulderdash!


Best regards,
Trem

Me too. Hope the sub has turned out well, so you can get back to bringing Boulder Dash to life on the 2600! :)
