Mark can finish whatever game he wants whenever he wants. No one really has a right to have any particular game finished unless they've already paid money for it.

Mark did tell the Intellivision board earlier this year that he'll be working on the Intellivision games once the 7800 expansion module is done. That means the Intellivision board has his word.

Without him, the XM may end up like Atarivox. Supported by a couple games, and then forgotten.

 

The AtariVox isn't dead yet.

I think the XM will have more than a couple games. Groovybee has 6 expansion module games that need to be completed. Perry is doing expansion module games in terms of hacks and it doesn't appear that he'll be stopping anytime soon.

The people on the Intellivision and Atari Jaguar forums have the right to have the games that GroovyBee started for Intellivision, and the Jaguar to be completed also. The games for the Intellivision and the Atari Jaguar has to be a priority for him once is done with the 7800 expansion module and the current expansion module games.

It may not be intentional, but you're really coming across as if you feel you're entitled to his free time.

 

If he announced plans, he's allowed to later change his mind, or not, as he sees fit. Its not a contract, and he's not locked into doing anything.

Bob thanks for your share with us your games.

I hope get "burned-out" wasn't one of the reasons of quit, and I hope he really enjoyed the experience of developing his games. We of course enjoy playing them.

But he'll be so old by then, he won't be able to use a keyboard anymore. Maybe in that flying car future, they'll have PCs that will hook up directly to our brains, so typing won't be necessary. :D

This is kind of a mystery that he would disappear all of a sudden without dropping a line or something :? . I hope everything is all right. He sure has some great games. He will be missed. :(

So many of you only loved him for his mind, but I loved him for his body. :D

@ Stun Runner 87: I realize she's your sister, but I still find it highly inappropriate that you would use a picture of my girlfriend for your avatar.

This is a monumental loss. Bob was not only the best programmer I think that was out there on the old Atari stuff, but unquestionably the most generous. Always releasing his ROM's (one of few who does), taking feedback by folks here along the way, and incorporating those ideas. My best to he and his family.

Best wishes to Bob as he gets affairs in order. He sure was a machine when it came to pumping out quality games. Rather than thinking of this as a loss, we can keep playing all the games he did finish for our 7800s.

Will pac man plus still be available at the atariage store if so, for how long??

My advice to you is to get all the games in the atariage store while they are available........its not like these carts are mass produced by the millions........Get them while there hot, cause you never know, they might not be there tommorow......

I really hope he comes back at some point. Bob might have been the NICEST guy on Atari Age.

 

Good luck Bob, with whatever you are doing!

They're already at home in their mom's basement reading this thread. Now I'm gonna go tell mom to turn the tv down so I can finish reading the other posts.
