  1. Hi everyone! I hope all of you are staying safe and healthy these days. That "survival kit" pouch was distributed to all Activision employees attending the Pitfall release party at the June 1982 CES in Chicago. The party was named the Activision "Rumble in the Jungle" and was held in the grand ballroom and multiple additional ballrooms of The Ritz-Carlton Hotel. I can't begin to describe how big that party was. We had three bands playing simultaneously, dozens of party-style midway games scattered around, multiple open bars, LIVE animals in cages hanging from the ceiling and hundreds upon hundreds of attendees. Every Activision's CES party were THE event to attend if you could get in. As I recall, the pouch contained: - our badge to get into the party - an Instamatic camera - coupons for the Midway Games It was truly a once-in-a-lifetime event!
  2. Hi sramirez2008! It was our pleasure!
  3. Hi Stargunner! I definitely wanted the package to capture the look of the original Activision games. The game packaging, artwork, patch, etc will be the same quality as the original games. No blue & white labels here!
  4. Thank you Psionic, Sramirez2008, Supergun and 4ever2600!
  5. Greetings everyone! Here's a comp of the package artwork for GOLD RUSH™. Please let me know what you think!
  6. Hi Dragonstomper! I just might be able to do that!
  7. My pleasure! I love creating games for the 2600!
  8. Hi Stargunner! Thank you so much for your kind words. I've always said the difference between a good game and a great game is attention to detail. And just like you stated, most players won't know why they feel one game is better then another. But if you analyze it behind the scenes, you'll always find a dedicated game programmer, artist or designer who took the time to polish each part of the game they touched.
  9. Hi Quadrunner! You'll have to wait and see!
  10. Hi River Patroller, GOLD RUSH™ has been written entirely from scratch because I don't want to infringe upon any rights Activision has to the original code. The original prototype code can be viewed once the original prototype .BIN is released.
  11. Hey Stargunner, The reason I haven't put the games up on Kickstarter yet is simply due to juggling my time to complete the game vs. meeting the responsibilities to my interactive industry clients. I'll be posting an update on my blog shortly.
  12. Hi Stargunner! I have no problem releasing the code. I donated the cartridge to the National Video Game Museum because of their passion to preserve video game history.
  13. Hi Fallen Moderator! I will release the original prototype when GOLD RUSH™ is released.
  14. Hi River Patroller! Please be sure to see me at PRGE. I'll be on the 12:00pm Activision panel on Sunday with my brother Garry and Dave Crane.
