This looks like a big load of fun... :) Love the use of gravity to throw the ball.  I know I'll suck at it, but I think the family will have a ton of fun with it. With the team all using xbox controllers, I wonder what cool features will be implemented when you use the Amico controller?

Looks super cool. I’m a bit confused when looking at it but I’m sure when I play it I’ll get it !

Hi Tommy,

 

Apologies if this has been asked before, but I wondered if it will be possible to select player colour in Amico games? I really like the idea of everyone in the household having their own dedicated colour (much like if we play Cluedo or Monopoly we all have our set characters we always play). If not I think that would be a great feature. Or perhaps that's just the geek in me!!

 

Thanks!

Y'know, that makes me wonder: has the production of dev kits been affected by supply shortages as well?

Absolutely!!   100%!  We show that in an upcoming video!

With the delay of Amico, maybe there can be more pack in games added.  Space Strikers seems like a good one to pack in.  


Only 6 games.  Sorry.

So will this game be a real exclusive or just have an amico edition. People are getting confused, even the devs admit there is confusion as I suspect they may have the game as a PC game "Neon Shifter"??. Im hoping amico will have more games in a truly wall offed environment and truly 100% exclusive as  IMHO it will help greatly enhance the interest and sell-ability of the system if they do. (but perhaps IE did take over funding and this is an true exclusive?? if so that would be great.)

Haha!  True!  :)

 

They haven't begun the optimization yet and they didn't have 4 controllers but we wanted to show 4 players (and the mobile app wasn't optimized for this game yet).  

I'm sure there will be a faction of people who will scream bloody murder because they were playing the build off a PC. But as they clearly stated in the video, they haven't started optimizing it for Amico yet... they also mentioned that it's a work in progress. 

There will be certain things to do "on screen" as well... but we just wanted to highlight the initial basic 4 player super fun and easy gameplay at this point.

Tommy,

 

You said all games on Amico have a single player mode.  But in the future will there be some games that are multiplayer only?


Yes.

Here is what Tommy has said in the YouTube comments:

Quote

Almost every game ever made uses a PC hooked up to a development kit to create it. :)

They did not have access to 4 Amico controllers and the implementation on the mobile app has not been optimized so they played it directly from the PC instead. :)

Which makes sense to me; lots of console games are tested on a PC first of all.

Our version is exclusive and different from Neon Shifter.

 OK, but if they are just different versions and/or control schemes of the same basic game, I think you guys may be opening yourself up to some blowback.  Just my 2 cents. I may be wrong, wouldnt be the first time :).  I just think true exclusive will be the ones that really move the system like say EWJ4, or baseball or other 100% exclusives.

At this point I don't really care how a gamer wants to interpret the word "exclusive" for a video game console.  We've made our definition very clear and the devs even confirm it in the video.

Exclusive means we are not doing direct ports (like most companies do).

 

It's not really a big issue unless someone wants to try and make it one.... which as we're all aware... they will no matter what.


I like @The Atari Creep's simple response:

Tommy,

 

Will the physical games/digital games show how many can play?  Such as this game is for 2 players only.  Or this game is multiplayer only.  Also, will there be any games that are just single player?


Yes.  They will show how many players the game is for.

Currently we do not have any games that are just single player.

Hi Tommy,

 

Will Breakout have a mode on it like classic were you just have to clear all the bricks to progress to the next stage? As I noticed this mode is called Voyage, makes me think the will be a vertical classic mode. 👍😀

Tommy, not sure if you saw my question above 👍😀

Potentially.  We're not 100% sure yet if we'll be adding that.  Doing the core game first.
