Tommy must be super busy. Haven't seen him post much or jump onto the Amico All Access podcast for a bit.  Things are gearing up!!

It's sad, we miss him.  Hopefully he stops by the Q&A today.  Where are you Tommy?  Must say his name 3 times.  Tommy, Tommy, Tommy.

Probably a lot of work to do before August 4th... And Announcement # 2 should arrive early next week ! 😃

My thoughts on what may be the biggest Easter Egg (which may not really be one at all), but am surprised no one else mentioned this; the video was titled ANNOUNCEMENT #1.  
 

Does this mean were are getting at least one more video before the 4th?

@OEB_Pete confirmed that the second video will drop next week on the live cast last night - so gear up for more Easter egg hunting soon...

Maybe the Rock band Hmmm  is part of the "accessories" that Tommy mentioned.

Wait... Will there be a Sears Amico?!?!?

Nasa... Hmmmmm. I know Space Shuttle was Activision. Didn't Avalon Hill have a Shuttle game? SpaceX game? (Avalon Hill had some good (board) games).

Tron... Well we all know how a lot of us feel about Tron..  (Shameless plug for the under appreciated Tron: Uprising cartoon).

Tommy's Welding mask... an Amico welding game?!?!?! OR Tig Welder, the attachment!  OOOOOOOoooooo

IntyIII - Tommy already has plans for a 3rd iteration of the Amico.  (The 2nd being the Vectrex).

I thought the NASA shirt was a shout out to @RxScram  Do we know what he looks like? Was that him?

I believe @RxScram played the role of Amico Victim #1 - I am hoping for a reprise of "OMG You Killed Kenny, er, @RxScram!" in part 2.

I heard Pete mention in tonight's podcast that the 8/4 event for Amico is 30 minutes long.  I was hoping it would be an hour.  Lol.  But I'll take 30 minutes.  8/4 can't come soon enough.

 

I prefer 30 minutes of real Amico gameplay to 1 hour of Xbox movies ... Nothing was impressive.

Everyone's just talking about power, graphics, guessing what the game would be. (Because we've seen a lot of games that only partially explain the story!)

 

With Intellivision Entertainment, we will have gameplay, gameplay and gameplay. (With a few surprises!)

30 minutes will be enough, and if it's more, it will be a bonus for our eyes and ears! 🙂

 

I will be on vacation on August 4th. I have already spoken to the family and we will stop our road trip at 1PM Eastern Time, and everyone will be watching the special event.

Our vacation this year will be forever associated with the Intellivision Entertainment's special event! 😃

I am with you - a good, tight 30 minute presentation is perfect. Maybe an overview of the finalized system, a few special guests, lots of game play, a few surprises thrown in here & there - done. Short & impactful.

 

Also I love your vacation (shillcation?) is slightly pausing for the Amico announcement - you have a very understanding family 😀

Nope, it was not I who played that role. That was the amazing Kevin Strom, Intellivision's Director of Customer Experience.

Thanks for your kind words. Yes, I am grateful.

It was my girlfriend who suggested this to me when I told her that the announcement would be the same day we go on vacation! 😃

New question for you Tommy. Just watched the interview/discussion on Comicon. I was intrigued with what Valerie Vacante with (LiveArea//Collabsco) she was discussing a game with augmented reality with pieces you put on a table to form a track.  

So my questions are this are you working on games to have this ability?  Using a cellphone camera? 

And are you in any agreements or discussions with Tommy Palm or Valerie to do game development for the Amico.

So then, who was in the NASA t-shirt, and did it have a purpose?

They probably want to get the hell off this crazy planet.

That was Mike Kosko, one of the other electrical engineers. I think he just wanted to show his admiration of me. 🤣

NASA t-shirts are the new RAMONES t-shirts. You wanna think that the person wearing it is cool, but most of them just wear them because its trendy. And yes, in this case the guy is cool.

Whenever I'm thinking about buying or selling a home, the number one name I turn to is Mike Kosko!

Do you work at NASA?  I'm a huge fan of NASA and spaceflight in general, and I was in Florida for the CRS-11 launch in June 2017 for a #NASASocial.  Great experience, and look forward to doing it again!
