Well a little about me. I'm married and have a son and a daugher. I am actually young for the Atari 2600 generation, I was just old enough to start playing video games as the Super Nintendo came so I have no re-collection of the Atari 2600 being in productions.
I did own an Atari Lynx when it came out with one of my all time favorite games Chip's Challenge that was later stolen and I never got it back. I miss that system to this day, it was my favorite handheld.
Anyways I got my first Atari 2600 in 2000 but the only game I had for it was Super Breakout and it was neat and everything but I didn't do much with it. In the summer of 2009 I was at a yard sale and I got a 2600 with 27 games for 5 bucks. Lately I have been getting into older games, and I was wondering what made the Atari so great. Well now I know.
I am also a software engineer/programmer which is what my BA is in. However I have never programmed a video game before. I have been interested in Homebrew games in the past but there never seemed like a good language to do it in.
Well long story short I read about Batari Basic and with the help of several people I have two homebrew in the works. Atomic Meltdown and Candy Catcher which is currently available for Pre-Order!
Thats it for now, I will update this more later.
