/images/features/lead_shot.pngWill you lead?

Find the answer by travelling through the 20 tunnels of Lead, where you'll have to fire at incoming enemies, dodge deadly asteroids, scramble past menacing sentinels and catch wandering satellites to survive, and finally prove to yourself that you can do it.

Lead is a fast paced action game created by Simone Serra, whose first Atari 2600 homebrew release was the unique collection of puzzle and rhythm games in Sync. AtariAge and Simone Serra are sponsoring a contest to create original artwork for Lead. This label artwork will appear on all copies of Lead, which will be released at the beginning of December in the AtariAge Store. This artwork will also be featured on the cover of the manual created for Lead. You can learn more about the contest and how to enter by clicking the following link:

Is there a .bin file for our emulators? Some designers probably would like to play the game before making a label.

Personally, I was thinking of a spiraling, roller coaster-like loop in space, stretching out toward a wormhole set in the distance. It's kind of hard to explain, but it would look like a cross between a Cedar Point ride and the old arcade game Tempest.

There is a bin posted on the contest page, but Nathan's already pointed it out. :)

I uploaded my first label about 12 hours ago. I'm really excited about seeing that on the page. Did you get it yet?

Thanks,

eBay. Albert's plan is to just eBay everything from now on. Drive up demand, increase the price, sell one or two at a huge profit, then repeat every few months. ;)

I use an old photoshop (6.0), for me not worth buy a new version, I recomend previous photoshop versions (5.0 up to 7.0) for people that need a quick and professional program, my case. And these old photoshop are faster :) I have mine for years!
But I don't know if run in windows 3.1...

I have XP SP2 as well, I bought an old copy of 4.0 that DID work on XP, I hadn't used it in over a year and now it said out of memory when trying to load (but I'm not out of memory). It would certainly help. I love using paintbrush though, as a teen I pushed it to the limits and did stuff with it no one could do at the time without big money and machines.
