Ever heard of the ColecoVision Brotherhood?

The CV Brotherhood was founded by me along with a few other guys a few years ago

The mission of the Brotherhood is to preserve any CV related stuff, but most importantly, the CV prototypes

We already did saved a few prototypes out there and made them available in cartridge format (physical release)

Well, I'm happy to announce that the CV Brotherhood is soon going to strike back once again!!
We'll soon reveal a big announcement!

So stay tuned!

Reminds me of a Peter sellers movie title. Could there be other similarities...

Oooohhh! Some very late dates in the production lifespan of the Colecovision... these must be very exciting! How long will you keep us waiting? The anticipation is killing me! :D

Yep, VERY late in the production lifespan

And it looks like we all know a prototype by its wrong title

OK, I stop this here, more on that later.... 

 

I'll reveal them somewhere in January   ;)

1st proto has already been released as a commercial release
We need to check how different it is from the release

2nd proto has already been found in the past but with another name
It looks like the one we have is the final version (according to the eprom date)
The name is also TM wich lead us to think this is the final version

3rd proto has never been found before!
It's the very first time we heard of this game (never been mentioned it's was going to be a CV game)
Not an "awesome" game but still, a previously unreleased game nonetheless

Yes indeed, I was shocked to see those eprom windows not covered
The good news is all 3 prototype are working

I'm not the one who took the pictures, I immediately asked to cover those windows

Yeah, Learning with Fuzzywomp was part of the Learning with series from Sierra

As for Fireworks Factory, then all I can say for now is it's the final version of the Fireman game
Quite different as well , hence the title change

More later ;)

OMG - after all the crap that went on about this I am so glad to see that it truly does exist and that it is now in the hands of someone who will actually do something to share it with the community rather than a whole load of stupid teasing.  Thanks J-F for making this happen and very excited to see exactly what the prototype contains.   ;-)
