well it's even worse than that, the only thing they even kind of implied to have running on that board was a spinning cube. everything else was 'illustration purposes only'

is this the part where someone knocks on their office door, causing the building to collapse and reveal it was just a plywood facade

in the full audio of the register interview arzt said something like, the current joystick he had with him doesn't spin but they intend for the release version of it to be able to. i'm not sure how much confirmation of their intentions is worth

most of my nostalgic feelings for the olde microcomputer in a keyboards's are clumsily poking around in basic. i'd prefer just a functional replica kb in an empty case that i can mess with over some lil thing with pretend keys. i doubt there are enough people like me for someone to bother with that. or maybe someone did and i missed it.

even ignoring all the numbers i'd be hesitant to trust their marketplace when they're currently being sued for withholding developer royalties

my anecdotal tale - i have a single game on steam and it was made with unity. the mac and linux versions both had problems that took a few hours to sort out, in both cases it was the steam integration at the root of it. i try to avoid the asset store and was rolling with basically stock unity. i could see piling a bunch of random things on there ballooning up to a major issue but i was actively trying to avoid that.

 

the low effort asset dumps may skew the numbers upward since their main revenue came from generating keys to sell offsite to bot farms, i know i didnt sell no 100k copies. none of my acquaintances with a steam presence have pulled numbers anywhere near that either. could just be our collective crap marketing

i'm all about the underdog, but if they're asking for money up front with no obligation to deliver anything and no recourse if they decide to dip i'm gonna need a bit more to go on than a couple empty boxes and an atari logo.

pretty entertaining interview. if i were atari, the process of preparing to update would involve quietly maneuvering their pr firm in the direction of the bus.

i don't know enough to make something 2600 accurate but i have an idea. maybe the reference will survive long enough for me to get something playable.
