But, are they in active development? I know that mine were taken from my AA profile, and although I plan on working on them, they are all in various stages of early design, none of them in actual development. Then there are others that have been taken from Arnauld's page from five or more years ago, which seem to be abandoned.
I think these pages are good to document the Intellivision home-brew scene, but I think it overstates the active effort. Don't get me wrong, I'd be very happy to see new games released, and I appreciate Rev's effort on keeping track of these projects.
Yes, you are right DZ, some or even alot of the games in the IN DEVELOPMENT section may of been abandoned or on hold for what seems like forever.
The IN DEVELOPMENT section has this description when you are the main Release Schedule page: A list of all known Intellivision games that are currently in development and also games that were started and never completed.
This section is really just as you say keep track of games once started.
You never know when a game that has been in development hell, will out of the blue have some work done on it, polish it up, and get released all of the sudden. Example: John Doherty's OLD SKOOL by Elektronite. Now called OLD SCHOOL. I swore this game would never get a cart release.....
So, DZ, hurry up and finish that Pac Man game!
