Contest: First person to PM me a message with the correct name of the arcade machine photo altered in the picture below wins the Humble Bumble deal on Steam (Bubsy: Woolies Strike Back and Bubsy Two Fur) or $20. Originally I listed the above picture on Twitter by saying (and some more clues for this contest...) "Hey #BubsyNation was at Free Play in Arlington, Texas and was amazed to find the @BubsyThe_Bobcat Russian arcade game. It was the coolest game I never played." I of course rev
Just one day left till the Limited Run Switch release of Bubsy Paws on Fire is available!
Got the timer going on my desktop.
Here is the link for just the timer...
Looking forward to seeing Bubsy on the tinyest game cartridge since the Gameboy version.
WELCOME TO THE *100th* ENTRY OF THE BUBSY FAN BLOG!!!
So what I like to do is Cruise Google and YouTube every so often to see if new things are being done with or to the Bubster. And I found some things. First off thanks to faithful fan SpongeFox for the entry image! She has a lot of great art so check it out and like it every chance you get.
So in the spirit of Easter you get this interesting Bubsy/Easter
Tonight I was talking to another Bubsy fan and as we were talking he said "By the way, I know it's old news, but did you hear that Bubsy's creator, Mike Berlyn is currently battling cancer? Really horrible to hear. Mike created many fine games in his day. I've been meaning to read his books, too."
Actually I did not know that. I have searched around the internet tonight to see how Mike is coming along. The last bit of news was in June of this year. There was a GoFundMe campaign, but that
Bubsy Shades surface on Ebay!
"Up for sale is a Very Rare and Vintage Promo Item from the Super Nintendo video game Bubsy Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind."
No love for the Genesis version?
"This was not an item that you could purchase, you only received these if you purchased the video game through Babbages, which was a video game store at my local mall."
Yes, I remember Babbages. I remember going there to find games for my Atari 800 computer and I think the midninet
Hey there Bubsters, how have things been as of late? I've been conversing with a few Bubsy fans since the last entry.
First off there was my original inspiration for looking at Bubsy beyond the Jaguar, BluieBerrySoda from the original Bubsy HQ. I caught up with her on chat one day and I was telling her all the various versions of Bubsy I'd found. BTW, here is what the collection is currently looking like:
Ain't that a beauty? The recent additions since the last picture is the Austra
Working on content for the Bubsy episode of the Jaguar Game by Game podcast by Shinto. Got exciting news: We have an interview with Michael Berlyn, the creator of Bubsy, and Faran Thomason, the producer of Bubsy FFT for the Atari Jaguar!! We want to ask them some really gripping questions that will blow the listener's hair back!! Have you ever wanted to ask either of those two a question? Now's your chance! Submit your questions in the comments below! Need questions for Faran by
This year Bubsy (in May) will be one year away from the legal drinking age.
You know I am amazed on what will be the 20th anniversary of Bubsy that there is still material to talk about, but amazingly there is. Developers have come forward, artists, and fans. To matter the fact I am always getting beaten out of bids on ebay for Bubsy memorabilia. I mean I have some fairly deep pockets, but some out there are just crazier than I am.
Most of the time I hear from peopl
There is a new Bubsy in town, or so one site would have us believe. I call it "The NEW ADVENTURES OF BETSY", since the site we are talking about has Bubsy in a transgender angle. I say the site is not actually about Bubsy himself, but we'll get to that in a bit. In the meantime, here is the title image of our feature site! Now throughout time we have seen many versions of Bubsy. As fans we have seen many ongoing stories of Bubsy from Pixel Chat, to Bubsy Returns, to the very creative B
Made this just for this thread here on Atariage after someone gave praise to the game I-War, which was a ok TRON-like game. I realized I had not Bubsy-ized it, so I made my spoof. Here was the thread I made this for...
"!-War!! Yet another exciting thread to the Bubsy saga as he has to escape the Woolies' mainframe computer on the planet Rayon."
The video game star formerly known as Bubsy, now called "!". I guess
So SpongeFox tells me the Bubsy blog needs a new entry, and it has been about four months since the last time, and now it is almost April. So let's cruise and find what people are thinking of Bubsy...
First off, here is a interesting 3d model of Bubsy.
Can always count on the deviant arts for the Bubster....
Hey Bubsy fans! Have you ever wanted to play Bubsy Bobcat: Fractured Furry Tales from the Atari Jaguar on the Sega Genesis?
Well you can't.
But today you can play all the mod music from that Jaguar game on your Sega Genesis, or in this case the Sega Gopher or whatever you call that Sega handheld system that Atgames sells.
File is attached, (Called "Game.zip") along with all the best versions of Bubsy to play on the Genesis and a few modified games with Bubsy in it.
And as a a
Welcome to the fan blog of
Some blog entries will be pictures, some stories, and just other fun. Half the fun of being a Bubsy fan is the uniqueness of anything fan made about Bubsy. So what you have in this blog is a collection of pictures that have appeared over the internet. I place them here as a mirror so that the art will not be lost, however if you are the owner to some of this art, please let me know. Be good to hear from another Bubsy F
Did you know there was a portable hole toy for Bubsy? Neither did I. But then again, the closest thing I have been able to find for a list of Bubsy merchandise is... well... here.
Yes, it would seem that the Bubsy shirt was released for the first Bubsy game, and for the second game they made one of his gimmicks, the Portable Hole. Looks neat. When it arrives at my place I'll try to get some more pictures.
Until then, Keep it Up!
Thought of you tonight while browsing through some MAME ROMS. Ever hear of a game called Magical Cat Adventure?
Cool little game and dare I say, more fun than a barrel of Bubsy's :-) lol" - Save2600
Wow! I really wonder, looking at the art and the castle bit if this was not a heavy influence for the Jaguar version of Bubsy? Wow, that is simply an amazing similarity. What do you other Bubsy fans think?
While looking at some information for the JagFest 2000 I found something cool in the pictures. At first I saw the top of ears and said "That looks like Bubsy" but thought I was just seeing things.
And then as I looked at other pictures, sure enough, it was Bubsy in a Bubsy II shirt saying:
"Bubsy's Back" and naturally on the back of the shirt you have a picture of Bubsy's back.
Typical Bubsy humor.
Now if I can just find Joel, who was wearing this shirt at the JagFest, and get
So how are things? Me, been camping, playtesting ST hacks for the Jaguar and playtesting Atari 2600 games on the Flashback Portable. However, I have looked for new material for Bubsy. Sometimes searches find the new material, and sometimes I find it a few months later. Like the gem below! I like how they use the fighting animation that is all dust and claws. However they add a punching and kicking animation for Bubsy for the purpose of the gameplay. I appreciate this. Someday I want
If you look on eBay right now at...
You will see a that sarasaland-dragon169 in the UK has created a Bubsy plush that looks like it was a based the way Bubsy looked in Bubsy 3D.
All and all I think the plushee has good detail and definitely looks like Bubsy. Well done Sarasaland-Dragon169!
So the trailers for Sonic Forces has recently come out and they introduce a new character that they show a silhouette that looks amazingly like Bubsy. Is this possible? Well, there are a lot of things that support that it would. Here are some videos that I found on this:
The first video I found that turned me onto this YouTube sensation.
Here we have a video where the author tries to explain away anyone else but Bubsy.
Explanation of who currently owns Bubsy and that
Got a new version of Kitt'N Kaboodle for the Atari 2600/VCS
This one has:
* Improved sprites (Jumping, running, and climbing.)
* Change of the logo from "Bubsy 0" to "Kitt'N Kaboodle"
* New final level with item (one of Virgil's atoms) from "Paws on Fire" to celebrate that game release.
Download latest version.
The latest revision was prompted when Welfz Twingo Furs ran some ideas by me for a version of the game he had in mind. I created
It gives me extreme pleasure to introduce to you one of the most crazy Bubsy fan artists I've yet to see on DeviantArt, SpongeFox. SpongeFox was gracious enough to let me repost the Bubsy art here, so long as I gave her credit, and no one else stole the work, so look and enjoy folks.
When asked about Bubsy SpongeFox said, "I've played Fractured Furry Tales on a Jaguar Emulator. Pretty hard btw. And as for my story line for the Twins, I figured they could be Woolies in disguise. I didn't lik
Was Cruiz'in Atariage and found a new user who had been here a little over a month by the name of BubsyFan101. Always good to meet another Bubsy fan since we are a unique breed I think.
So while there is new material on the internet (which I will feature next month), allow me to draw your attention to some things going on here on Atariage. First off there is BubsyFan101's intro message:
And a glitch tha
Meanwhile on the Officious Bubsy Discord Server, discussions continue, projects continue, and some time to time, some interesting facts are given.
We've known in the fandom that the Gold X award, believed to be made up by Accolade, was in fact a "true" award for the magazine, PXExtreme.
It is no surprise that there was in fact a tin through platinum award for the magazine. We figured it would be great to document the various awards in a blog entry, and also whatever els
