#4169018 Sydney Hunter & The Sacred Tribe - ColecoVision

Posted by retroillucid on Sun Dec 2, 2018 8:17 PM

I met Jérémie today as he was leaving the TPUG show in Toronto. I loved talking to him about C64 Sydney and wished I had got him to sign my boxed cart! Any chance of Collectorvision making it to World of Commodore 2019?

 

Ah, that is great! :cool: 

 

As far as going to World of Commodore 2019, I would say it's definitely doable, and would love to! :) 
We might be ready to presents our next C64 title as well

I never received an answer to this question when the kickstarter was happening so I will ask again. Will there be any warranty or support for this product?

We're going to give a limited warranty wich will warrants the original consumer purchaser that the CollectorVision Phoenix shall be free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of 90 days from the date of purchase (when the unit is received) 

As for support,
After the 90 days warranty, if something happens to your console, we are going to repair or replace your console and we'll provide you an estimate cost of repair

 

*All these informations (and more) are going to be included in the Phoenix Instruction Manual

On Wikipedia there's a listing for a Sydney Hunter game in the works for Dreamcast. Is this true? I want it.

 

What?.... Sydney Hunter games are on Wiki?  :lol:  ....cool  :cool:

Yes, we do have many projects in the pipe, that include Dreamcast games

Did you ever get an answer?

 

If a game is available as an electronic download, the instruction manual should be included with it, and possibly the overlay image, too. They're part of the game, and often the instructions are essential to getting the most out of playing it.

I'm going to post the manual, overlay and map 
Give me a few days and it's going to be posted here  :)

You bring up a valid point. Bundled games would be nice, but I wouldn't count on it. Super Turrican Director's Cut was a special case of a software developer searching for an outlet to release a game, and a hardware developer looking for a pack. We may or may not get lucky this time around. I could see a potential homebrew deal going down, maybe Piko or Collectorvision has something they could share with analogue.

 

 

I would not mind sharing some of our games with Analogue

I'm curious to know, even though it's only been 2 or 3 days, how many people have signed up and paid for preorders so far? It's not like kickstarter where we can see how many people pledged. Even though it's technically none of my business, I'm curious if enough people are jumping on board.

 

Over 200+




#4153979 Dead Tomb

Posted by retroillucid on Fri Nov 9, 2018 7:24 PM

Hello
Here's Dead Tomb for NES
I've been working on this game for 2 years now 

This game is based off Temporel Inc. , an obscure game available through cable service in Quebec, called: Vidéoway.  
I've also heard it was also available in some parts in UK, 

The Vidéoway was way ahead of its time, you could play games, and many other features like weather forecast, Lottery results etc.. 

Sadly, when the serviced was discontinnued in early 2000, all the games were lost (games was temporary downloaded to your device) and the company didn't seem to have preserved the data :(

So I've decided to do a remake of Temporel Inc.  Now dubbed; Dead Tomb 

It is playable in both English / French 
It is going to be available 1st quarter of 2019 
The game is for NES, but with the F18A, I'm thinking to port it to the ColecoVision as well  ;)

... I'm not really surprised that the CollectorVision project got the numbers that they did. In truth, that's extremely respectable.

 

Completely agreed!
I think we all knew (at CollectorVision) the KS campaign was going to be used as a ''gauge interest'' than more than anything else

That being said, we're quite happy of the reception so far  :cool:

Intellivision controllers are 9-pin digital controllers. Support for original or flashback controllers shouldn't be an issue. If you have a controller that hasn't been abused they are fairly reliable.

The problem with Intellivision is where you are going to get an intellivision fpga source. Kevtris has the only one that I know of.

I'm not sure if the intellivision community is bigger but they talk more. Collectorvision sells to both so they should have a good idea. It sure would be nice to have an a2600/intellivision/colecovision all in one fpga system.

Edit:
If you want sales address atari 2600 cartridges, analog/paddle controllers, switches. With that stuff the kickstarter would have been achieved easily.

The Intellivision community is definitely bigger than the Colecovision one

Regarding the Intellivision  FPGA core, well... we would just do like we did for the Colecovision, creating our very own core

Is the case for PlanB injection mold, 3D print or ... ?
