Donkey Kong Arcade (ColecoVision)

Recommended Posts

The nice thing is that now we have the boxes for PAC-Man and Donkey Kong already printed, and Lady Bug already designed. And one more surprise. ;)

 

Could it be: SIC, Arkanoid, Pengo, Moon Cresta, 1942 or Kangaroo...?

:-D

 

 

Editt: Maybe DK Junior. ?

Hmm... if the picture above is supposed to be a hint for the surprise item being worked on for 2017, i'll make 3 guesses:

 

- Salamander

- Donkey Kong Jr.

- Enhanced SGM

I wonder how it is going to work if people have a standard sgm . Will you just not hear the arcade sounds like the new sgm will put out ?

Donkey Kong requires a bigger amount of work to be perfect and it's not ready yet, but we want it to be one of the first games to be released this year (Premium line) with SGM PRO features.

For those who made the pre-order on jan/2016 don't worry, your special edition is safe and sound (both refunded and not refunded).

I am back from vacation which means Opcode Games is back on business. Our priorities early this year are:


  • Ship remaining SGMs, including 1st and 2nd run French SCARTs. They were assembled last year but I just didn’t have the time to ship them due to conflicting and busy schedule before leaving to Brazil.
  • Investigate and fix issues with some copies of Penguin Adventure.
  • Beta testing SGM Pro. We will soon start pre-orders, and also plan to offer a trade-in program for 3rd run buyers. Please stay tuned for more details soon. The estimated shipping date for the SGM Pro is July/August 2017, with two games available around the launch window (Pac-Man DX and Donkey Kong)
  • Ship replacement nameplates for 2nd run (long overdue)
  • Announce our new Color line titles for the upcoming months.

So the events of last night did strike a few cords and got me thinking, and I think its only fair to ask: with the spotlight seemingly directed now at Project Prometheus, where exactly do things stand with DK Arcade?

 

And with the cancellation/permanent hold or whatever the status is of the SGM Pro, does that mean we'll see DK Arcade sooner, later, or whenever? Not sure how far along things were, if the SGM Pro features were added or not and with that device no longer an option just what then needs to be done to the current code to remove it, modify it etc.

 

It would be really great to finally see this released before things get too far along with other projects and this goes back into limbo.

 

That, and I'd love to be able to play this game come June when I'm done with school and finally graduate - first time I'll have really "free" time in the past 5 years.

 

Any update and time-frame estimates would be appreciated.

Well, since we printed boxes for DKA last year, and those cost a small fortune, that is one more incentive to get DKA out this year, as well as Pac-Man DX.

That's great news, any updated ETA on the time-frame?

ETA? This is your last chance 128Kgames! After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill - the DKA story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe what ever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and Opcode shows you how deep the DKA Rabbit hole goes!

Thanks Morpheus, but I swallowed that red pill along time ago, so I'm already in this for the long haul, no hardline in site to jack out. :)
