Songbird 20-year anniversary: sales, mysteries, and games, oh my!

Recommended Posts

Believe it or not, it has been 20 years since Songbird started offering both new and "lost" games to Lynx and Jaguar diehard fans. You are the ones who make this such a great hobby, so thank you for your support of Songbird and all the Atari hobby game developers out there! To celebrate two decades of Atari hobby goodness, Songbird is offering a series of sales and new project activities throughout the year to make 2019 the best year yet.



SALE ON CLASSIC GAMES


For the first sale, Songbird is offering a variety of Lynx and Jaguar treats at throwback prices. These are the best prices you'll find all year, and they can be yours from now through 11:59pm on February 8.


  • $10 off Hyper Force
  • $10 off Soccer Kid
  • $50 off bundle price for Lexis, Ponx, and SFX, all featuring the newly designed cartridges and labels!
Hop over to the Songbird website now to scoop up your copies while they last!





MYSTERY JAGUAR PROJECT #3



The project is well underway and should be available within a few months. This cartridge features a couple of cool new technologies, but I don't want to say more until it gets closer to release. Stay tuned!



REPRINT OF MEGAPAK


At long last, a reprint of Lynx MegaPak is in the works but we still need a few months to get the cart design worked out. Coming soon!



HIDDEN GAME REVEALED FOR JAGUAR LOOPZ


Last but not least, there is a hidden game included in every copy of Loopz for the Atari Jaguar! Simply hold the Option key while booting Loopz, and you can access JagTris 2018! This is an amazing little game brought to you by Bastian Schick and Songbird Productions, making your Loopz cart a 2-for-1 block-game bonanza. Head over to the Loopz page for more details and pick up your copy today!

Here's a photo of an actual MegaPak cart for the upcoming re-release:

post-535-0-73558800-1550532791.png

Note that this one is 3D printed instead of professionally molded, due to a mold incompatibility with the saved data EEPROM on MegaPak. The edges are not as straight and clean as the pro mold, but going the 3D printing route allowed me to preserve the EEPROM functionality for Lynx fans. Hopefully everyone will appreciate that.

 

Anyway, overall, I'm happy with the cart presentation, and it's a big step up from the plain black PCB release I did 11 years (!) ago. To test the waters with this alternate process, I am only making 25 of these carts. The last piece I need are new booklets, and those should arrive in a couple weeks from the printer. Stay tuned for the release in March 2019!

Hey Carl, I'm keen on CyberVirus - do you still offer the discount shipping to Australia???

The Songbird shopping cart should now automatically pick a lower shipping rate for small orders (I think 1-2 Lynx games in most cases).

Hmmm - shows up as $32 for one game to Australia... is that right, Carl?

Yes, because regular flat rate shipping is $40 for all international orders. So that's an $8 discount. If you place an order for just one Lynx game, I can knock off another $5. I'll have to issue a manual refund for the $5 difference, so please place the order as normal and mention the $5 discount. Only valid during this sale. Thanks!
