Just posted this on the podcast Facebook page, but for those who dont care for that particular social network...

...a couple incredible finds - courtesy of 'friend of the show' Karen Overstreet - while packing up the Intellivision Productions office (it's moving to another southern CA location).

All I can say is WOW... I had no idea these even existed; unreleased Intellivision III game boxes of unreleased games for an unreleased console...

True. I should've referenced that. I was just surprised by the fact that the actual printed examples still existed - scattered amongst the various piles of papers in the Intellivision Productions office.

Awesome find! I hope they are putting things like that in some kind of protective sleeves...

Very interesting.

 

They ahv a more 70's vibe than the original Intellivision boxes, oddly. I guess those were merly mock-up/first drafts for peopel to tinker about the final product.

They probably will now, but the usual storage method for things in that office was - shove it under a stack of papers wherever there's some free space.
