Join AtariAge at the 2016 Portland Retro Gaming Expo, taking place Friday, October 21st through Sunday, October 23rd at the Oregon Convention Center. This year's show will be open for the first time at 3pm on Friday so you can enjoy the huge Retrocade an extra day! The Portland Retro Gaming Expo (PRGE) is one of the largest classic gaming events in the country, bursting at the seams with video games and game-related activities all weekend long! Here's an incomplete list of what you'll find at the show:

AtariAge will once again have a large booth showcasing new and upcoming homebrew games for the Atari 2600, 5200, 7800, Jaguar, and ColecoVision systems. For the first time you'll be able to sample the entire back catalog of AtariAge 2600 and 7800 games at our booth! We'll have some hardware demos as well, such as the walkman-sized Atari 2600 based on FPGA technology created by AtariAge user Crispy. 

Please visit the official Portland Retro Gaming Expo website to learn more about the show. If you're attending the show, please stop by our booth, say hello, and play some new games!

I kind of thought so given the verbiage you used on the front page article. Still glad though you going to be there don't get me wrong. I'm also thinking of the hundreds of dollars you're saving me by not bringing things to sell... ;)

Come check out the crazy museum room this year everyone at the show!  I will be there selling some homebrews for sale to benifit Cowlitz Gamers for Kids as well as being doing a few panels.  Hope to see many there.  This is the one retro expo to attend if you are going to pick one.

I don't doubt it.  Will you be bringing anything to sell?  The AtariAge booth was the highlight of the show last year.

Agreed! I am taking PTO the week before and week after this year, to make sure nothing interferes with my special holiday...

Also for those people who missed out on my previous games I published, I will have copies of the 2600 games Ature, Catacombs of Chaos, and Game Panic available at the show.    I also will have a homebrew nes game Cowltiz Gamers Adventure as well. These games will have a portion of proceeds go to fund future homebrews of shows.  

 

ALSO, I will have a PRGE exclusive game Game Panic II for both Sega Genesis and Sega CD at the show.  40 copies of the game will be made.  Come to the PRGE musuem to purchase these and say hello!
