Sounds great. I'll be gone until August, so please keep me in mind when you release this so I don't miss out.

Don't worry, I'll let you know.

 

I'm currently designing the box.

Here is a little teaser.

I hope you people like it...

This game is really great!

 

You really should be proud of it. If I saw the game before this thread I couldn't say this is a homebrew or a comany developed game!

 

I like very much when an arcade game is ported or when a good hack improves some original game. But this is different as many said before this game stands on its own, you've made an awesome game, I'm glad you changed its name.

 

I'm looking foward to buying a copy when it's done.

And I can't wait to see another games with this engine. Don't forget to release the code in a free software license, better than releasing in public domain.

Thank you guys, it is this sort of feedback that keeps me doing it!

The box art is AWESOME. Very retro - almost Peter Max. I like the new name as well. No disrespect intended but this game is NOT the Great Giana Sisters by any stretch of the imagination. :)

Looking great! Say I think the 2600 just got a brand new mascot!

 

 

Speaking of mascots - am I the only one who thinks this looks like an animated version of the 2012 Olympic mascots (although with the important difference of not being rubbish)?

 

looks cool though

Still think Blinky in the Drinky is a better title. :P

 

I love the box art. I really want to see this come to fruition. I'm also eager to hear the game now that it has SFX.

 

Would you consider doing a limited run poster of the art work? I'd seriously love this framed in my living room! :)

Hello everyone,

 

I'm happy to announce, that "Blinky goes up" will be released officially at the Gamescom 2012 in Cologne.

It is "...the worlds largest trade fair and event highlight for interactive games and entertainment" - http://www.gamescom-cologne.com/

 

I'm there on Wednesday (15.Aug) and on Saturday (18.Aug)

Wow, simply wow. Just stumbled over this thread after watching this Gameswelt.TV report (featuring a short interview with you at 32:33).

 

I believed a game with these mechanics to be possible on the VCS for some time now, but couldn't hope for it to become reality. Even though this is "only" a 4K title, I will buy a cart, as there are far too few good homebrew VCS titles exploiting the VCS' scrolling capability.

Hi Thorsten,

 

thank you for pointing to the Gameswelt.tv interview - I probably had never seen it because I lost their business card.

If you want to buy a cart, feel free to register yourself at http://www.lov3machine.com/blinky/index.html

This looks great and I have to thank you for sharing the Rom. I was trying it out last night on the harmony cart and the one thing that bothers me is the lack of a jumping sound for blinky. That omission makes it seem incomplete imo. Otherwise, great job.

I am officially completely stumped...

Any hints?

 

 

There is a special maneuver called "Airwalk".

Just run over the edge of any platform and press fire while Blinky is running/falling and he'll perform a jump then!

 

 

Too bad, I hadn't time to finish the manual. I'm sorry!
