how many Europeans will attend?

 

up to now I only know of one German representative

 

IIRC, last year only the British and the Italian ( :-D ) one-man delegations were present

 

 

I hope I get some back up from Forza Italia!

 

btw. I will stay in Portland from monday the 17th 'til friday the 27th.

You might be the only person visiting Portland longer than me. :-)

The trick is finding a good "pre-name" like so many of the Super Pro games have, like Chip Shot, Slam Dunk, Body Slam, etc.

Hurry Hard! Super Pro Curling is the most obvious name, but there may be better ones.
 
I should emphasize that I've never done Intellivision development, but I was a huge fan of the system in the 80s and I've considered jumping into it at some point.  Super Pro Curling might be a good first project, but it's really hard to compete with all those great sports game on the system.


To be clear, you've already found the perfect title. :)

And yes, while there are so many great sports titles for the Inty, this could be a really neat one to add to the list. There are a lot of very helpful programmers in these forums who I'm certain would be happy to help you make the leap.

I plan on having something...to demo...maybe sell...you just never know...I have the empty cart shells and baggies ready.


Will what you're selling involve the underground parkade as usual?

I'm on the fence about going this year due to finances. What's the latest 11th hour anyone has successfully attended? In other words, if I only discover I can afford it but not until Oct 1st should I forget trying to get a hotel at that point?


I booked a hotel super late last year. I probably overpaid for a plane ticket, stayed in a shady motel far away, and had two consecutive late night 3 mile walks back after the light rail ended service. It worked out though and I had a great time. Booking early is cheaper, closer, and nicer, but last minute still works. I say go for it! Who wants to look back and say, 'glad I played it safe'?

Will they be for sale to the rest of us after PRGE?

Well due to a rough work schedule I may just debut Jr Pac Man, Moon Blast,  a few others at the convention.

I do want all of of those games!

 

Due to family issues, Portland is looking financially out of the picture for me. :)
