The design is started on Microsurgeon and some test stuff, but not the actual programming because the team is finishing up a big title for us. 

I guess the same thing goes for Safecracker.

I can't, as it's up to Evercade to release info and they have a schedule.  All I can say is that there are definitely some big titles on Collection 2... including Cloudy Mountain!

 

:)

 

 

oh man ... looks like I'm gonna have to get an Evercade after all

Had this idea after seeing an Amico press shot a few months back...I'm not too good at this image-editing thing, but I hope you folks like it.

 

Happy Pride Month!

I was on the fence, but after the Intellivision collections and the Data East Arcade collection announcements, I'm really feeling the need to pick one up.

The same way they did with Night Stalker.

How did they do it? 

 

Night Stalker is only 4-way shooting.  AD&D is 8-way.  So it's not really the same. Dual button press?

I don't know what to make of this one... Some interesting comments, some real funny ones, some cheeky insults in typical British manner.  I can't tell if he's happy about it or not.  Seems like he's looking forward to it. 

 

BTW ... we pronounce it "Jagwar" not "Jag-u-are" because the u is silent.  Lol.

And Germans pronounce the "e" in Porsche... but alas, this is a battle I'll never win.  It's like trying to convince people it's pronounced Dr. Soyce (Dr. Seuss)... but even he couldn't win that one.

This Photoshop was so good that I literally had to do a double-take and check to see if I missed the end of the auction!  I totally thought this was 100% real!

Amazing!!

Today we remember all those who lost their lives while serving their country. Some were friends. Some were family. Most were people that we will never know. Their sacrifices will not be forgotten. When the call to serve was issued, they answered. 

I've been to the actual Vietnam Memorial in DC, but the travelling Memorial Wall was in my hometown area over the weekend and felt it important to see it again. It includes a lot of information on other conflicts, including a wall for all those lost in the Iraq/Afghanistan conflicts, as well as those lost on 9/11.

Check out this amazing hand drawn cover art for our physical version of Missile Command!

 

You'll notice the missiles are attacking and defending an energy refinery and not a city.

 

Way less scary.

 

:)

I like it. Has the same vibes as the original with a bit of a twist. I'm almost certain that the soundtrack will be better than the record. :)
