I'm a french canadian guy who grew up with 80s videogames for ColecoVision and Commodore computers VIC-20 and C=64. My dream back then was to make my own videogames for the ColecoVision and so I've started very early to program in BASIC and various other computer languages. At home, my family enjoyed some of my games which encouraged me to keep going. When I first looked online to find ColecoVision programming information I was very disappointed to see almost nothing was available but started to email back and forth with other programmers and eventually made my own toolkit and CV games. My first CV game released as a ROM file was a simple Breakout-like game in february 1999 that was eventually released in cartridge in 2004 under the name Double Breakout and in 2005 under the name Deflektor Kollection because of Atari company strongly insisted to not use the word Breakout in any homebrew games from AtariAge web site which generated alot of hate against the actual Atari company. My first CV game in cartridge was DACMAN based on a game named ANOTHER PACMAN or cimply VICMAN which is the first PacMan clone game I've ever played in my life. Since River West Brand paid for the names Coleco and ColecoVision, nothing changed for me about doing my own Coleco games, even got an email from them asking me to do a game for their web site which never happenned.
