Congrats to Brian O. If my "entry" was to be selected it would have been a travesty to Brian O as someone who has actual artistic talent!


Thanks, purduecrum :)

Some of Brian's work to me is too fancy or not fantasy enough for 2600. But I REALLY liked this one, and am glad it won!

Congrats! I'm glad this got to a quick close. The Boulderdash contest was a nail-biter waiting and waiting...and waiting...

The cart image was done weeks ago, and the manual was completely done earlier this week.

Unfortunately it seems that real life happened, and Al won't be able to create the actual carts and manuals in time for Christmas like he originally planned. :(

That's OK. I'm not attached to particular dates. Holiday cheer in the winter is always good, and we've got at least a couple more months to go until spring.

Will there also be a PAL-version (or at least PAL60)?

Congrats Brian O!

The label looks fantastic and thanks to the guys behind the cart for sending me a sneak preview - this is an excellent package that should be on every 2600 owner's Christmas list.

No updates from the devs. The binaries and manual design were completed last year, and the remaining steps are for Al to create the carts and manuals.

Between BoulderDash and real life he was pretty pegged, but maybe he'll be able to update us if he sees this.

This may be a big Christmas for the 2600.
This holiday came cartridge.
Possibly one from SpiceWare of it gets done this fall.
And I, myself, am making some DPC + 3-channel holiday tunes (not for a cart sale) but for the fun wow factor.

Hopefully Al will see this and comment. At this point I'm sure the goal will be Christmas 2012.

Cool beans on the Christmas music, iesposta. It sounds really good!
