Today (7PM PT/10PM ET) on our LIVE Twitch stream we'll be trying to get as far as we can in Princess Rescue (maybe rescue the Princess?) and then on Friday (2PM PT/5PM ET) we'll have three games we haven't played on the show before! Juno First, T.R.A.S.H. (WIP), Stay Frosty (from Stella's Stocking).

 

I've also been updating the top post with the upcoming schedule for Let's Plays so you can get an idea of what's coming up and what we have waiting in the wings for future shows. Please feel free to suggest any awesome WIP games that we've been overlooking!

No problem Dan! Have fun at the Video Game Summit, hopefully I'll be able to catch your livestream of it. I'll post a link to the YouTube archive of Saturday's ZeroPage's livestream in all the usual social media outlets.

Join us LIVE today (Friday July 20th) on the ZeroPage Homebrew Video Gaming Twitch livestream at 7PM PT/10PM ET where we play games that fit COMPLETELY in the memory of an Atari 2600 cartridge, ONLY 128 BYTES!!
Yes, you read that right, BYTES not KILOBYTES! Today we pay tribute to these thrifty programmers of small games including Thomas Jentzsch, Wickeycolumbus, vdub_bobby & Zach!

Thank you to everyone who continue to tune into the show live every Wednesday and Friday on Twitch and watch all the archives on YouTube, the response from the community to the show has been amazing. It's really a ton of fun being able to show off all the hard work the designers put into these creative and amazing games! We really look forward to each and every show we do.

 

Stay tuned as we have some big plans for ZeroPage Homebrew in the coming months, see you on the next stream!

20180803 Let's Play: Gingerbread Man, Space Rocks, Toyshop Trouble

 

 

Had not seen this before, watched a little bit of it while waiting on a compile for work. The Easter Egg is triggered by holding both joystick buttons while at the menu (easiest to do if you hold the right one first). No need to fiddle with power, reset, or select. That link gives info on the 3 Easter Eggs in Space Rocks.

 

Also the Easter Egg text is slightly off on your system, some of the letters don't have spacing between them - see Shawn & Brandin (my brother & nephew) as an example. Likely similar to the issue alex_79 saw with the 128 pixel bus stuffing demo.

Thanks everybody who tuned in to watch the super fun Atari 2600 Homebrew Hack's livestream episode yesterday. I just posted YouTube archive link to the episode in the top post (20180829 episode). If you have any more great hacked 2600 games that you'd like me to include in another episode of hacks, leave your favourites here or PM me! :-)

 

EDIT: As Thomas pointed out below, I am looking for hacks that not just alter the graphics but add something significant in terms of either gameplay, level design etc..

I think most of the hacks listed are not suited to the requirements James has mentioned in his stream, because they are just graphic hacks. James is looking for hacks which e.g. change the game play or add some real value to a game. Graphical hacks are usually only interesting for a few minutes.

You're right but i think these hacks are worth a look although they might not be interesting enough for playing on the show.
