  1. R.I.P. to Jeremy Bulloch, the original actor who played Boba Fett in Star Wars 😥

  2. I just noticed on your list, the game Mysterious Song for Turbografx.... Is that the same Mysterious Song made by DarkDread? I use to follow his work when he was making rpgs in Basic, many many years ago. Secret of Cooey, Mysterious Song (was originally a basic dos game) and others that aren’t coming to me right now. I learned a lot from his tutorials and then his website died... If this was him, I’d love to know if he’s still around or is still making things since I lost track of him. Had no idea he ported Mysterious Song to turbografx either if that’s the case.
  3. I wrote to Warren a few weeks ago. He did write back and said he is still working away at the book. Said books take a lot longer to write than games did.
  4. In the process of turning my storage room into a retro game arcade/retro game development room as I wait for my first homebrew purchases to arrive. Still relatively new to the Homebrew scene, but I love that it really is keeping these old systems alive. Was a very cool surprise to find this thriving community of enthusiasts on the internet when I did.

  5. Did the Atari Homebrew game “Dungeon” ever have a box release? If so, does anyone know if this is something that may be restocked eventually?

      Yep. At one time you could get a box, and a poster/map (OOP). You may want to PM Al. I know he prints the boxes up in small runs from time to time. He may have one laying around.dungeon_poster.thumb.jpg.1323906f67167c17f2dbe1bf5936648e.jpg.217d027eef6150114c2e5cf695707346.jpg

      Also.... good luck with Deepstone Catacomb! Hope it does well.

      Thank you :) I would love to have that poster and map as well. Beautiful art and love your design on the game. I’ll definitely be asking him about it.

  6. Thanks, no, sorry no demo. I'll be eventually releasing the entire game
  7. This is a game guide for Deepstone that I was working on. It's not really needed, but was fun to do. I just represented each floor by four rooms to keep it simple. All the floors are random, so it won't help map your way out in the game, but it does show what type of monsters to expect on each floor. Also it will give you a rough idea on how much further you have to go to reach the Dark Lord at the bottom.
  8. Just clicked on a random homebrew video on YouTube and saw my ad that the guy received in his order. I just want to say... that is really neat.

  9. No, sorry, I am not 5bytes, they do share a similar look but that was not intentional. I was trying to keep my game following a 8x8 tiles based graphics to feel like an NES Zelda-like clone on the Atari. I think we made very different choices in our gameplay designs. :S
  10. Thank you, I appreciate it Just the box and cartridge will be released initially
  11. Was looking at old Atari catalogues.. Decided to make this tonight 😛
  12. Agreed, would love to see more of this. I was flipping through the Art of Atari book while I was creating DeepStone’s box art and thought of attempting to emulate one of my favourite artists in there. However, I did decide to go a different route in the end. I have a huge appreciation for those original paintings though. Each artist used different tools and had a completely different take and style on what they felt the box art should be and portray. On a side note, Brian’s Man Cave reviewed the game if anyone hasn’t seen it. Thought I’d share it here:
  13. loving everything I’ve seen on Penult! Got a little friendly jealousy here. It’s really looking awesome! And is that S.A.M. As in the one I remember for C64 on the Atari?!? 😮
  14. You make very valid points, and I get where you are coming from, however I went into this with a different mindset. Before I wrote my first line of code, I knew what I wanted this box to look like. The choices I made when creating every aspect of my game was to make it visually appealing to myself (also, in high hopes that others would like and enjoy it as well of course). Having a game on cartridge and in a box was kind of a dream of mine since I was a kid. This is my first completed game and It is also a giant mix and match of my childhood. I’ve mixed so many things together that defines a lot of what I was into as I was growing up. Everything, even down to the choices in colours have meaning to me in some way. It was less about following the proper rules and timeline for me than it was to mix everything that I thought was good about the era. It’s fun, it’s art. That’s one reason that the back of my box has a bit more life to it than the original boxes did. It’s more about what feels better than how it actually should be to fit into the exact time period. But what you said is fair... I like rules and structure, but then again, I don’t. It’s complicated 😛 Thanks for you’re input and I’m glad you are looking forward to my game
  15. Went for a walk today and came across the strangest thing...
