Can you say how much boxed copies will be? I just want to know how much to set aside. Personally I'm looking at Draconian and possibly Froggie.

Has anyone ever thought of flashing "custom" cartridges on-site? Like when you buy a game, there is a spot on the title/attract screen for your name or a personal message.

 

The game would have to have a spot of memory available, the name/message entered into the source, and compiled on-site. Like this. You walk up to the vendor, and they ask if you would like your name or a custom message flashed. If so, they enter it into the source right there, compile it, and flash it. $20 bucks extra! OR free..

There used to be a company that did that for birthdays:  https://atariage.com...ania-cartridge/

Posters to be included with Draconian and Super Cobra Arcade.  As well as one of the 30 stations we're including with the first 30 people to buy Draconian.

That Draco poster is sweet. I may have to get some more 11x14 frames for the posters (yes I'm aware the posters are 10x14 but it works over black mattboard). Currently my Scramble poster is on top of my old Star Castle poster inside the frame... :P

As an option for those who want to send in a POKEY or Ballblazer.

Did you also say separate versions of Froggie could be made available with TIA or POKEY sound?

 

I'll likely be sending a loose Pokey chip your way for Froggie. Let me know when you want me to ship it to you so it won't delay my order when the games drop in November. :cool:

I can't stop looking at both posters. The artwork for each one is really good!

Thank you! I just finished the manuals (literally... last night), and I hope people like how they turned out as well. :D

Am I right in thinking that the POKEY is soldered to the 7800 board in the homebrews, and thus not something we could easily do (at least I wouldn't trust myself!), thus having to send you the POKEY to install in our copy?

Excited about the games, especially Draconian.  Hopefully I can be one of the first 30 buyers.  My booth is probably less than 100 ft away from AA, so hopefully I can get away from my booth and pick up some games!

Some work is still being done on the TIA version of the game.

There is a socket, the POKEY is not soldered in.  However, this would also require labels to be applied by yourself.
