ZeroPage Homebrew will be streaming a 12 HOUR homebrew gaming marathon fundraiser on June 28, 2019 for the continued development of the amazing Atari 2600 emulator Stella. Stella development began in 1996, is maintained by Stephen Anthony (stephena), and many contributors have put in the their time, equipment and dollars over the years towards its continued success.
Over the twelve hours of the marathon the crew at ZeroPage will be playing all your favourite homebrews, taking gaming challenges from the chat, trying for new highscores and generally having a ton of fun. We'll also be auctioning off a whole bunch of generously donated items to help raise funds for the incredible work that's being done on Stella.
Supporting the development of Stella not only provides you with an amazing Atari 2600 emulator to play all your favourite old school and new homebrew games, it's also and incredibly important tool in the development of new games for your VCS! Stella has a large number of helpful utilities under the hood to help troubleshoot and analyze issues during the process of making a game. By supporting Stella, you're helping accelerate the development of games and push games to further and further heights!
