This is a very thoughtful endeavor Luc. Positive vibes Óscar! Hang in there. I wish I could afford more, but sent an email for 4 titles. Will get PayPal sent asap.

Holy crap!

 

Going through a bunch of health issues and family issues at the moment myself, so I definitely can understand some of what you are going through, Oscar.  My heart goes out to you and your family.

 

What you are doing, Pixelboy, is amazingly generous.  This is the kind of thing that makes me glad to be part of this community.

 

I've got to sell some gear fast!  I can think of several titles that I want.  I can't believe that 17 new games are coming out all at the same time.  Between all of the other games that are/will be published this year, that takes us up to what?  40?  50 games?  Mind blowing!  2016 is shaping up to be the biggest year yet!

Well, it may not be "all at the same time" exactly. I may divide them into multiple sub-shipments over a few months. Or otherwise, if a buyer wants me to hold onto his copies until they are all ready to ship, and then have them shipped in one package, I can do that too. :)

Sad news about Oscars Wife :(

Congratulation on your new job Luc!

 

 

Sad news to hear about nanochess's family.  Thoughts and prayers to him and his family.

 

 

CoolCV, IntvBasic and his Princess Rescue Intellivision port, all amazing stuff!  He certainly exemplifies AtariAge at its best.

 

 

Will pick up several games and I will be glad if it could help.

Nanochess... my thoughts and prayers go out to you, your wife and newborn daughter.

 

Luc... I really have to tip my hat to you for organizing all this with so much else going on in your life. You are a class act and we have been so lucky to have you involved in such a major way in the CV/ADAM scene all these years. Congratulations on the new job.

Is there any way to donate without purchasing a game? 

 

Just sent you a PM. Many thanks!

Oscar - I am very sad to hear of this news for you and your family.  Stay strong for your wife and child my friend.  :)

 

Luc - This is an incredibly kind gesture that truly amazes me, both to raise funds and to bring this to our attention.  I have replied to your email and am in for some of the games.  I also offered a suggestion that may make collecting funds easier and also allow for contributions outside of game purchases.

Luc - While I know this isn't a "GoFundMe" style of campaign, I was going to ask if you had any sort of goal in mind or were going to plan to release some of the amounts that have been sold/raised as time goes on?  I think some people might really like to see that if they see you are close to a milestone, it might give people an incentive to pick up a couple more games, etc.  Just an idea...  Love what you're doing and am totally blown away by all of this!

Well, the money just started coming in, so it's a little early to publish collected amounts. But I can say that I just passed the milestone of 1000 games pre-ordered. :)

Holy shit!  That is.... *AWESOME!!!*  Lots of respect goes your way and lots of support goes towards Oscar.  Absolutely AMAZING!

As I write this, roughly one third of all the people I've contacted about the budget series have replied. I consider 15% of those that haven't replied yet to be "long shots" and I don't actually expect to ever get a reply from them.

I'll consider this operation a success when over half of the people I've contacted will have replied and ordered at least a couple of games. I'm not too far off from that goal already. :)

I finished placing an order for half of the games that I would want to play. I'm happy to help Oscar out, and getting games for doing so.
