Is Mappy_20180606_NTSC the final rom or is there a newer version that's on the cartridge?

 

 

Just counted, John's posted over 20 new builds for us to test since then.

So when can we order? :)

 

I'll be adding Mappy and the other new PRGE releases to the store in November. When, exactly, remains to be seen, but hopefully be mid-month.

Were these publicly released?

 

 

Nope. These were internal test builds.

 

John typically releases the final ROM for a game after its initial release on cartridge (which will be at PRGE this week).

My wife asked me what I wanted for Christmas the other day. I sat her down and showed her this (Mappy) and a handful of upcoming releases for the Atari Jaguar. She looked at me and smiled, and then said, You want an Atari Christmas dont you, honey?

 

I hugged her and said , I love you too, honey! lol!

Just released! ZeroPage Homebrew's interview with John Champeau of Champ Games at Portland Retro Gaming Expo 2018!

 

We caught up with John Champeau at the AtariAge booth at PRGE to discuss his past, current and future homebrew game titles including his new release Mappy and WIP game Wizard of Wor! John also dropped some hints of some upcoming game titles he has planned including a whole line of homebrew sports titles for the Atari 2600!

Nice interview!

 

I'll admit to being a bit disappointed in last year's homebrew panel from PRGE, since it didn't seem that the homebrewers had much of an opportunity to talk. It's nice to hear John have a chance to talk about his games. Hopefully you can do more interviews like this with homebrewers. :thumbsup:

 

(Guess I need to get working on the next batch of sprites... :ponder: )

Thanks so much Nathan, it was great to talk to John and to give more voice to the homebrew developers making amazing new games!

 

I'll also soon be releasing an interview I did with Dan Kitchen about his two new homebrew 2600 games Gold Rush and Bon Voyage (and his future plans for MANY more games) as well as an interview with Albert Yarusso from AtariAge all about bringing the homebrew games to the masses!

 

Nice interview!

Great interview! John seems like the best guy!

 

I was not planning on picking up wizard of wor, but now I totally want to (as well as an atarivox). I am also ALL IN on ChampSports games.

 

Looking forward to the upcoming interviews!

Nathan still notices because he isn't used to it like I am. :)

 

 

On the contrary, my first and last name get misspelled all the time. Nathen is the most common. But I've had Natham, Nathun, Nathon, Nathien (still trying to figure that one out), as well as Strumm, Strumn, Strom, Sturm, Stern, Stromme, and for some reason, Smith. I'll admit though, I usually just copy/paste your last name when I need to type it someplace. ;)

Is there some kind of order list?!?! I'd like to get a copy

 

No. I'm shooting to have it (and other new games) available in the store mid-November.
