Hello everybody, I'm selling an original Atari Jaguar Skunkboard (with proto) to raise some funds for Starcat Devocean projects. https://www.ebay.de/itm/Atari-Jaguar-Original-Skunkboard-with-proto-flash-dev-tool-support-homebrew/263749061973 It's an original Skunkboard I bought back in the day when the Rev. 2 was just released. It was used to develop and test some of the Starcat Devocean games (i.e. HalMock FurBall: Sink or Swim). The board has been upgraded to a Rev. 3 and has the latest firmware installed. As a little gimmick for collectors I put two games on it: My latest release HalMock FurBall: Sink or Swim which is basically the version I offer as a download, but running from Rom. And an unreleased experimental version of JagMIND: BombSquad which previously was only available on CD. This one is fully playable, but does not include sound or support saving. I am selling this Skunkboard to get some funds to put into future Starcat Devocean projects and cover operating costs of the website such as server fees. Frankly, I've been offering my games and other Jag related downloads such as the dev manual for free for many years now and kind of wish to get back at least *something* as a token of appreciation. I will keep things as they are even if I don't but still. If you care to know: There were a few thousand downloads over the years, compared to three digit sales of Ocean Depths back in the day and two digit sales of later releases. The donationware approach never amounted to anything sadly. I'm kind of dissapointed that even the downloads and thus play count of my latest release (HalMock) were lower than anything I was used to. Maybe I should have done more to promote all that, but that I don't like overhyping something. It is what it is. The winner of the auction does not only get an original Skunkboard (in it's original cardboard box) and with the mentioned games, the support is also highly appreciated. Don't worry, this is not the only Skunkboard I have, but the only one for sale. I'm doing this auction to offer the skunkboard I used for development over the years to a fan or developer to hopefully make good use of it. The money is used as support for Starcat Devocean projects. Who is Starcat Devocean? We're a team from Germany developing homebrew video games in our spare time. Our passion lies in retro-style games like those of the 80s and 90s we grew up with. The team consists of my girlfriend and myself with other developers helping out on occasion. If you like games in 2D pixel style with humor, strong focus on storytelling and oldschool game mechanics maybe you enjoy our games. We're making video games like it's 1995. http://www.starcat-dev.de
