  1. UPDATE: The pre-order period for this game has expired, but you can still order it at full price (Shipment date yet to be determined) Except for the cartridges, everything else is ready (Manuals, boxes, covers, stickers, overlays) to begin the shipments to those of you who pre-ordered the game. The cartridge manufacturer is very busy and he has not given us an estimated date of when we should receive them. This means that the shipments (which should begin now) will be delayed and I will let you know as soon as we have a confirmed date. I am very sorry about this, but there are things that are outside of our hands/control. Thank you very much for your support and your patience. ______ Hello, I am Oscar Kenneth, from Kai Magazine Software (John Hassink, Mighel Angel Jimenez, Victor Sanchez and me), the developers of Ninja Odyssey,TNT Cowboy,A.F.: Anthropomorphic Force, A Tale of Dragons and Swords and Star Mercenary for Intellivision (Among many other games for other systems such as MSX2 and PC). I wish to present you our latest creation: The Sorrow of Gadhlan’ Thur is the first «Metroidvania» game for the Intellivision. The «Metroidvania» genre was born in the 90’s and it is tremendously popular these days. This side-view action RPG genre is a mixture of «Metroid» elements and «Calstlevania Symphony of the Night» elements where the player explores an open world and he finds objects which will grant him the ability to reach places he could not reach before, therefore expanding the bounds of the world he can explore. Usually the main character begins as a weak character and as the game advances he becomes stronger and has better equipment and new abilities that will allow him to explore further and to defeat stronger foes. The Sorrow of Gadhlan’ Thur for Intellivision includes all these elements and more. It is a carefully balanced mixture between Castlevania: Simon’s quest, Cadash, Zelda 2 and many other games. -Explore a huge open world and find powerful ancient relics. -Find new towns where you can save your progress and upgrade your equipment. -Explore dungeons and temples from a forgotten civilization. -Increase your fighting skills and abilities to engage smart and challenging enemies with an artificial intelligence never seen before on Intellivision. -Take advantage of the environment and sneak by your enemies by staying outside of their field of view. -Use throwing weapons to get rid of the most aggressive enemies before they can come close to you. Game Features: -Different animated backgrounds, giving a more immersive experience to the player. -Enemies and objects will remain active even when outside the view screen thus increasing the game-play area twice the screen area. (This feature is commonly found only on 16bit video-games since the late 80’s and 90’s). -Quickly and easily save your progress in the game cartridge. -High quality package with a very nice plastic box, a very high resolution cover and a big, high quality game manual. -Beautiful cover art by Miguel Angel Jimenez (as usual) -Nice and catchy in-game background music by John Hassink (as usual) -Incredible Intro music, amazingly synchronized to the events shown in the intro by Manuel Dopico -Story written by Victor Sanchez and me. Here you can see a video of the game from the beginning, and near the end of the video you can see 2 more advanced areas where the player has more items and abilities. The video does not look nearly as smooth as the real thing, so don’t get scared by the lack of smoothness here. Game-play video (NTSC colors): We started this project on summer 2019, after finishing and publishing the MSX2 version. This Intellivision version took twice the time and effort to complete than any other Intellivision game we made before. An incredible amount of hours and hours of optimization and coding went into this game. I did not stop optimizing the code and re-assigning the memory assets until we were able to include everything we wanted to include. This time, we will self publish this game with the help of the Intellivision community (you, guys ^_^) as we always did before in the MSX community and PC. This way the game can have as much development time as we want and we can deliver it with the package quality we think it deserves. The pre-order period starts today and will finish on January 21. The estimated Pre-order shipments should begin on February 2021. Shipments will be made in strict payment order: The first one who pays will be the first one to be shipped, and so on. Pre-ordering not only helps us but to you guys as well: All the Pre-order will have a 5 euro discount (55 Euro instead of 60 Euro). After the pre-order period finishes, the game will be priced at 60 Euro. Also, everyone who Pre-order this game will have his name or nickname (as you prefer) in the “Special Thanks” section of the game manual, so your contribution to help this game see the light will be immortalized ^_^ Shipment outside the European Union: 15,80 Euro (up to 3 games in the same package. More than 3 games: 21.80 Euro) Shipment to the European Union: 12,80 Euro (up to 3 games in the same package. More than 3 games: 15.75 Euro) Shipment to Spain: 6.10 Euro (up to 3 games in the same package. More than 3 games: 10,70 Euro) Pre-order link: https://kai-magazine-software.fwscart.com/The_Sorrow_of_Gadhlan_Thur_for_Intellivision_(Shipment_time_yet_to_be_determined)/p4398489_20901779.aspx Very Special thanks: Joe Zbiciak Oscar Toledo Arturo Ragozinni And you guys, for your support!
  2. I have the digital manual (The printed Elektronite manual will be different) for this game. The game is complete. We could begin to sell LTO Flash! ROMS for this game very soon. However, before we do that, I want to gauge the feelings of the Intellivision fan base on the following idea. Due to many reasons, mainly caused by the worldwide pandemic, we have not been able to box up and sell the 3 Kai Magazine games TNT Cowboy, Ninja Odyssey, and Anthropomorphic Force yet. The cost of printing has been prohibitive and frankly, our main focus has been on programming. In order for the developer to pay the rent and feed his children, most of our resources have been focused on keeping producing content rather than printing. I have an idea that will help us gain the needed capital to get the materials needed to 'properly' release the game. Pre-orders. Yes, I know that a certain individual somewhat wrecked the idea of pre-ordering a game in the Intellivision community. However, those pre-orders were for an incomplete or yet to be written game. This game is finished and ready to play. My proposal is that for people who pre-order the game, they will get a FREE LTO Flash! ROM encrypted for their personal LTO Flash! . Please be aware that I am not going to entertain any suggestions that the ROM be unprotected for use on emulators. Not going to happen. Sorry. We put far too much money into these games for them to end up on a ROM site. That being said, we would need about 100 pre-orders in order to have the box, manuals, overlays and stickers printed and to purchase cartridges for the games. My idea would be to collect the names of people willing to pre-order and then when we hit 100 copies, ask for payment and then get the materials printed and copies ready to ship ASAP. Please let me know your feelings below. Cost of the game would be $70 US plus shipping/PayPal fees which would vary depending on where the game is distributed. This has already been posted on facebook. Please do not express interest HERE if you've already expressed interest on the facebook Intellivision Invasion group. Here is a video of the game play for those who are not familiar with the game. Just because we are giving away a bonus LTO Flash! ROM does not mean that you are unable to pre-order and help make the release happen. The ROM is a 'bonus' not a requirement.
  3. It is time to show you a better video of “Anthropomorphic Force” since an older/obsolete video has seen the light, and also to open a thread in case you folks have some questions about it. This game is a work in progress. Some aspects might change/improve. There might be misspellings or other errors that will be corrected on the final version. This game does not require any additional hardware. It works on any Intellivision. It does use Intellivoice to play custom samples if it’s available (thank you to Joe Zbiciak for making this possible!) The video does not show how smooth the game really works and looks on a real Intellivision due to video conversion and emulator, vsync problems. The game works smoothly at 60 fps. I wish to stress that it is very important to receive your support on our previous games: Ninja Odyssey and TNT Cowboy. I am running very low on funds and I might have to look for greener pastures very shortly (before the CIB versions of those games are availabe). You can find more info here: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/290305-tnt-cowboy-official-ordering-thread/ -Developed by Kai Magazine -Published by Elektronite -Cover by Miguel Angel Jimenez -Music composed by John Hassink and Oscar Kenneth Albero. Adapted to Intellivision by Oscar Kenneth Albero Special thanks to: -Joe Zbiciak -Arturo Ragozinni (Artrag) -Oscar Toledo (Nanochess) -Victor Sanchez -Xavi Sorinas
  4. Hello folks! This video shows the upcoming Mattel Intellivision game “A Tale of Dragons and Swords” developed by Kai Magazine, published by Elektronite and based on an idea of Valter Prette. In this video you can see the intro, six minutes of uninterrupted game-play and after that, you can see several levels of the dungeon, enemies and key elements of the game. At the end of the video you can see an epic fight against a huge dragon: The game is finished and in the beta-testing process. This game features different difficulty levels, in-cartridge game save, different graphics and musical tracks for the dungeons, many multi-coloured enemies, 99 levels of experience for the player/character, shops, magic items, new abilities, 3 endings and much more, all in a big capacity cartridge (the game is 200Kb aprox). The musical tracks are composed by John Hassink (TNT cowboy, Antropomorphic Force) and the cover is illustrated by Miguel Angel Jimenez (TNT cowboy, Antropomorphic Force). We hope you like it!
  5. Hi guys! How are you all doing? I hope you all are OK in these hard times. I wanted to let you know that we (Kai Magazine as developer and Elektronite as publisher) are working on the remake of the Intellivision's original TNT Cowboy, with the same essence that you enjoyed so much (as many people told us) but better graphics, musics and longer game-play. The game has the same depth and fun as the original: A "Final Fantasy" kind of game (where you can level up your character, accept quests, earn money, build your reputation, buy abilities and better equipment, etc) but instead of boring turn based combats, you get to blow up all those mutant beasts and undead creatures with TNT charges in real time! Regardless of this last statement, it is family friendly, it is aimed for all ages. The game will also have new features such as multiplayer! We thought it would be fun for those who played the original game, to be able to compare certain key elements and areas of the original game versus the remake's same elements and areas, so here you can see a bunch of pics, showing the original Intellivision’s graphics, and the remade graphics of those areas. I hope they are shown in the same order I uploaded them, so they are easier to compare ^_^! Many graphics and elements still need to be improved, such as the main character itself and some background details, so the final game will probably look much better than this. We are developing the game in Unity, so it can be easily ported to any modern console or device. We are aiming the game performance to work (with different quality settings) to the following systems: -Amico -Atari VCS -Nintendo Switch -PC (Steam) Other systems might be considered in the future. We will publish a promo video shortly, so stay tuned if you are interested in this game. Please let us know what you think about it, and for which systems would you like to see this game published in. Stay safe!
  6. Hello, I am Oscar Kenneth, from Kai Magazine Software. A few months back I presented you a Project we were working on: Thio’s odyssey. Turns out I received some offers and the game will be published by Elektronite, with a different name (Ninja Odyssey) and lots of changes and improvements. The premise is very different now and the playability has evolved a lot, including different shurikens, a red suit for double jump, an intro, final bosses, smooth moving multi-colored enemies and many more things. I am attaching a video link and some snapshots: The video is recorded at 30 Fps but the game runs perfectly smooth at 60 Fps, so it will look much better on your console. This game does not require any additional hardware and it works on any Intellivision console. We are working on other Intellivision games, so if you like this one, stay tunned That’s all for now. I hope you like the game.
  7. Elektronite is pleased to announce that we are now shipping A.F. for exclusive use on the LTO Flash! for $20 US + $1.10 US PayPal fees. Please send your DRUID (Unique ID) for your LTO Flash! cartridge to: elektronite at hotmail. com for instructions on how to order A.F. We will be selling 50 loose cartridges over the summer when we get cartridges in stock.
  8. Hello everyone, I am Oscar Kenneth, from Kai Magazine (Developer of Ninja Odyssey). Here we are again to let you know that we FINISHED the second game for Intellivision (now it is in beta-testing process) and that it will be published by Elektronite on April if the betatesting process checks out. The game’s name is: TNT Cowboy An explosive Western Action RPG. Imagine playing a game such as Zelda or Final Fantasy, in which you defeat your enemies by blowing them up with TNT charges. Yes, this game is a full blown action RPG with experience points, level ups, money, quests, etc, but also, the combats have Bomberman elements. Just watch the video and you will understand (NTSC colors): https://youtu.be/Ws0aIlTEql0 It can’t be appreciated on the video but the game works completely smooth at 60 fps (50fps on Pal/Secam) but the video conversion and emulator and vsync problems make it impossible for me to record a 1:1 video. This game also features a real time shadow system which modifies the shadow casted by the solid elements in the game as they change (due to the explosions) and the main character gets affected by the shadows as well. This game took us thousands of man hours to complete and it is really big. There is a full screen intro with several images, an ending with the same, several complex BGM, many many areas to play etc. The game is more than 200Kb big, which if I am not mistaken, it is the biggest finished game for Intellivision ever created (not demo, there are bigger demos). I usually make Kai Magazine covers myself (such as Ninja Odyssey and many of our other previous games) but for this game I hired a professional cover artist who did a really nice job. I also hired a music composer and I wrote and adapted the music on Intellivision format. We all went the extra mile for this game to make it as big as we could. I really hope you like it and that you will support it so we can continue making games for Intellivision. On that regard, I can tell you that we started the development on the third game already. “Antropomorphic Force” will be a fast-paced frenetic Sci-Fi Arcade Space Shooter with humanoid shaped robots, weird aliens, multiple scroll layers, multi-colored sprites (player and enemies) and lots and lots of stuff moving on the screen at the same time. We will show you something as the game advances further, but I can tell you that it already looks better than Ninja Odyssey and TNT Cowboy. As we learn more about the Intellivision hardware we can do better stuff. Thank you everyone for your support! Special thanks to Elektronite, Artrag, Nanochess,Victor Sanchez, Miguel Angel Jimenez and Xavi Sorinas for making this possible!
  9. Wonder Boy clone for Intellivision Hello everyone! Allow me to present myself: My name is Oscar Kenneth, I develop retro videogames for a living, most of them for 8 bit systems. In case you are curious, you can see some of my games on this links: https://kai-magazine-software.fwscart.com/ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCaZO013JhpV07ksL5KmSrUQ/videos?view_as=subscriber https://www.facebook.com/Kai-Magazine-608839585897055/ https://store.steampowered.com/app/677910/Life_on_Mars_Remake/ https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=lom.kaimagazine.second&hl=en Anyway, my friend Artrag told me about intybasic and he told me I would have a lot of fun coding with it (and boy, he was right!), so I bought the book from Oscar Toledo when he visited Spain a couple of months ago. Without wasting any time I started reading the book and I made my first game for intellivision. It is a practice project, just to get comfortable with intybasic as I prepare for bigger projects, but I think some of you might be interested in it; Thio's Odissey is a Wonder Boy clone (shamelessly similar in some aspects) but with my personal touch and also redesigning the game for the intellivision hardware capabilities. The game runs with smooth scroll at 60 FPS without any frame loss on any Intellivision machine without upgrades or extensions of any kind. Here you have a youtube video, but I must warn you the frame rate of the video is horrible. I haven't been able to record a video at 60 fps. Finally, you can download and try a small playable demo of 2 random stages here: http://s000.tinyupload.com/?file_id=06841938343237182179 If you use an emulator, you will need the usual bios files: exec.bin and grom.bin. Some emulators have different issues with this (and many other) game/s: -jzintv works fine, but in some pc's or android devices, vsynk doesn't work thus showing tearing and also skipping frames at random. It works perfectly on the raspberry pi 3 and some pc systems with perfect scroll and no frame loss nor tearing. -bliss2 works fine, it might show some small vsynk problems with the scroll in some systems. -Nostalgia 4 works fine, with nice vsynk but the life bar shows a glitch when the scroll advances every 8 pixels. -Nostalgia 5 shows lots of graphical glitches. Not playable. If you use a real intellivision, you just need a flash card with at least 64k of flash memory. PLEASE NOTE: Those 2 first levels are not meant to be the real first 2 levels since those are too difficult to be the first ones, but I did put those on this demo so it lasts longer (not only 5 minutes) and presents a challenge. The game hasn't been tested yet on a real intellivision so I really don't know how far the compatibility goes, but it is a matter of fine tuning only. Also, the buttons I defined for the actions might not be the correct/usual ones. I can change that in a matter of seconds, so no big deal! Finally, if someone feels offended because the game resembles Wonder Boy too much, I can modify those graphics that are too similar in a matter of 2 hours, so no big deal either! I just made the game look this way because I thought it would be cool to see something similar to Wonder boy on intellivision, but I have no problem whatsoever on modifying those graphics that I made as similar as possible to the "real thing" on propose. The rest of the game (bgm’s, maps, etc) is not intended to be identical to the original wonder boy, so don't expect a port/downgrade. It is a clone. If you are still reading (congratulations!) I would love for you to give me your feedback and let me know what did you like and what did you not, etc. If there is enough interest in this game I might look for a way to publish it in cartridge version. Thank you everyone for your time on reading this. I look forward to your feedback! Thio.rom
