Hi, just wanted to start a thread here for my next Vectrex game (my first was Big Blue).

 

I have done no programming since the end of May but will pick things up again now summer is over.

 

This was the last video I recorded:

 

 

I added a vulture that dropped power ups since that video.

 

Originally the next game was going to be Frontier which will be a wild west adventure game... but I think I will now release this as Outlaw Hill (guess the games it's inspired by ;)

 

Currently it's 2 player Vs only but I will try to add an AI opponent... if that doesn't work out I will add a separate 1 player game as I know 2 player only games aren't always popular.

 

Doubt this will be out until 2018 but I'll keep the updates coming.

Surprised no one has commented. Big Blue was terrific. Excellent execution all around. I'm looking forward to everything the future holds from Vector Republic.

Cool, that looks nice.  I hope you've been able to work on it more so it can be released in 2018.  :)

Really liked Big Blue.  Would like to get this also.

Cheers guys, I've set myself a deadline of May to have physical copies of the new game ready :)

 

Also plan to have a bunch of US/GCE style boxes made up for big Blue as I've been asked by so many collector in America and Canada if I would ever do them.

 

Whilst I liked the foam inserts in Big Blue, and would use them again, I have ordered a large number of the new repro cart trays for the next game too... one step closer to being as close to original as possible!

Be careful mentioning Canadian Vectrex owners. They'll want a GCE/MB box. 

 

Glad to hear that you'll be selling the Big Blue re-release with the new repro cart holders. We really need to support Mortoff for his efforts.

That looks great so far.

And yes, I agree that there needs to be a strong 1-player component.
