Sorry to hear that as far as August goes.  I wonder if this change in dates will affect attendance at all.

 

I do not sell PAL cartridges at the show since 99% of the attendees are from the US or Canada.  I have made PAL carts for people who have let me know in advance they would be at the show and the specific games they were interested in.

@Albert I'm going to change my plans and visit the PRGE this year; I got green light from both work and my family! 🙂

Portland Retro Gaming Expo 2019 was a blast!!

It was a pleasure to meet Albert and his wife, John Champeau and his brother Paul, and of course James and Tanya from ZeroPage Homebrew.

 

Here are some photos of Amoeba Jump being sold at the AtariAge booth. The box and cartridge labels look great!

Thanks to Nathan for the artwork and Albert for the high quality printing and cartridge production.

Thanks for asking me to work on such a fun project! I'm glad it turned out well, and can't wait to start reading peoples' reviews in the AA store.

@Dionoid, your game Amoeba Jump is going to be used in the next round of 2020 Harmony Games on May 9th. is Version 1.3 the final version or the demo?
For the Harmony games this year, we are trying to see if we can use the current version of the game either finished or next completed demo so players can get more interest of the game. so let me me know before then.

Just tried this.  It's a fun and strangely addicting game.  And what's up with the title music?  I just can't get it out of my head!
