I apologize in advance if this is under the wrong forum topic. Is there any info on when the new homebrews will be released in the AtariAge store? The games where mentioned under the Upcoming Games topic on the AtariAge Store front page.

 

Thank You

The whole concept of new games for the 2600 is so cool to me, much less publishing them on carts. There are some EXTREMELY talented folks doing these, and many of the titles have just blown me away.

This is a labor of love for all involved so the community is very forgiving if announced release dates are delayed or even missed entirely.  Best anyone can do is provide a nice big ballpark and hope that the release can land somewhere in the same city.  However, it is always worth the wait, because AA cart releases are always top shelf material.

I received the boxes a few days ago and they look fantastic!

I also have hard proofs of the manuals, just working out some issues with a few of them before they can all be printed.  Looks like the camera shifted the colors of the Scramble box a bit, most of the "red" (except the Scramble logo itself) is actually a violet color. Here's the Scramble manual..

 Looks like the camera shifted the colors of the Scramble box a bit, most of the "red" (except the Scramble logo itself) is actually a violet color. Here's the Scramble manual..

 

 

Shooting against a neutral background (not wood) might help. Probably fighting the camera's auto white balance.

Received the second round of manual proofs and they all look great!  Manual order has been approved, and I should have them next week.   :)  Some games, such as L.E.M., I already have manuals for, so not everything is shown below.

You know what would be really cool? An app that kept track of homebrew game releases.

No, I'm pretty sure Albert is holding back the new games until this thread reaches some pre-determined number of posts.  :)

That's true.

 

Unfortunately, that number is 3,472.
