Pingvin sadly seems to have disappeared... hopefully he'll reappear.


Welcome back from the dead. :skull:

This game will be released in early 2013. I have basically everything done from a design standpoint (box, manual, cartridge label)...I just need to wrap it all up and move on with actual production. More info soon. If anyone else is interested or has any Sega VIC-20 cartridges to donate or sell, please contact me.

Yes, you are and yes, you did. I've kept a list of people who expressed any interest and I will contact everyone when the game is ready. Thanks for your support.

If its not to late, could I put my name down for one. I don't have any Sega Carts but willing to pay extra.

Cheers

I'll add you to the list of interested persons.

Yes, you are on my list. For anyone who has been following this project right from the beginning, I apologize for the numerous stalls and delays. I'm really committed to getting this thing out very soon. Things are moving along.

Both need some minor adjustments, but here's a sample of the box and label....

Not very many have turned up, which is a shame, since there are probably more out there somewhere. A copy of a game called "Bomber Word" by Tymac was found back in 2011. As I recall, that cartridge was originally thought to be dead, but it was able to be revived. The ROM was extracted and the game is now included on the VIC-20 Mega-Cart.

The VIC died a rather quick death as a gaming machine with the arrival of the Commodore 64 and many titles in development were cancelled. I have received confirmation that there were also VIC-20 ports of Sub Scan and Ixion done at Sega, but the programmers didn't save any copies of their work, so those titles are not likely to have survived. :(
