What are you hoping to see at the Amico event on 8/4?

A lot more game demos.  Hopefully a few of the sports titles as well as early look at EWJ4 if possible.

A celebration of the fact that a few days earlier Tommy was able to confirm that they’ll hit the 10/10/20 release date despite all the bad news that seems to be coming out of California.

More info/gameplay of Cloudy Mountain, and other exciting news that maybe we haven't heard about yet.  Would also be good to hear about the timeline of release, and if 10/10 is still realistic or not.

I think we'll get a new Ship date.  I'm sure he's heard it from us.. That is more than fine with us.  I'm sad for Tommy as this is important to him.  But regardless of how we feel about lockdown vs Opening. Masks Vs. Karens.. Sorry meant to say Vs No Masks.  I think we can all agree that The Amico team's health and safety is way more important than a ship date.  Although bucking compliance with California does garner free headlines. (Even pretending to).  Again.. Don't want to put you all in any danger.

 

I think the 8/4 video will be more about games than anything else. 

Loads more of the Launch games being shown for the first time.

More detail on games we've already seen.

Drop a few games in that we didn't know about. (Both Launch and future).

Announce the next round of games that are coming up. (maybe some video for them).

Some things that Tommy has hinted at over this last 6 months to a year like:

Wouldn't that be something - The game

Wouldn't THAT be something - The other game

Wouldn't that BE something  - The Parnership

Tron Wouldn't Tron That Tron Be Tron Something Tron - The Tron

A special game about falling into holes and picking up small peanut butter candy dots.

I won't go on..

 

Physical packaging details.

Physical Media

 

A Surprise or two. (Or 20). Maybe some behind the scenes of what he was welding on the last video.  

 

One beauty shot of a shelf with all Amico games on it.

Beyond a 10/10 confirmation (WOULDN'T THAT BE SOMETHING™), I’m hoping to learn some of the surprises related to H/W, unannounced  licenses, UI, physical media, etc.  Also would expect to see a good and concise description of the console (for those not familiar with Amico or IE yet) , controller overview (maybe some surprises here too) and IE mission statement, and of course new game footage.

A pile of stuff (in no order):
1. Specs for the main console
2. Specs for the controllers
3. A preview of Amico Major League Baseball
4. More Moon Patrol preview on the Amico Club app
5. Anticipated release day for the Founders Edition (and other editions)
6. A closer look at the controller and gameplay
7. A newer look at Shark! Shark!
8. An idea of projected release dates for announced games
9. Previews of games that haven't been announced
10. Announcement of what the 6th pack-in game will be
11. A preview of what the Amico store displays will look like

...and that's just what came to mind quickly. Bring on the Amico!

I feel like a lot of these games we're  asking for maybe aren't that far along. Unfortunately my gut is telling me they won't make wide retail release until Q1, but I'm hoping that maybe the Founders Edition will get released before year's end with the hopes that peeps will make a ton of gameplay videos and reviews which will be free advertising for IE for the wider release. Beyond that really hoping to see clips from some games we haven't seen before and more in depth videos of a number of games, starting with Cloudy Mountain

I'm hoping for an expected release date (at this point I'm assuming 10/10 is a no which I'm fine with but would love to be proven wrong), more couch multiplayer footage like they did with sideswipers, more reveals of the edutainment segment, and would love to see more of Biplanes (really encouraged by Tommy's comments about needing to get the feel of the controls right).

 

But really the only way I'll probably be disappointed is if the whole thing is about a mobile phone app or intellivision crypto currency or intellivision hotels or some such nonsense.

Yeah, when I asked about R-Type a while ago, it hadn't been started yet.

 

They can take their time with that one, though. Might as well get it perfect since it's R-Type!

 

I haven't really been reading the thread a lot, so I'm not sure how software development is going right now, though, or if it's been mentioned. Tommy seems to be busy lately, but maybe we'll hear something soon once he gets some spare time.

Oh, and I almost forgot... Really hoping to see my name called as winning the founders edition.  Even though I've already got one coming, I'd love to gift one to my parents who as farmers in the early eighties somehow justified getting an intellivision for our family as well as probably over 50 games for it over the years (I really need to take an inventory the next time we visit). It is almost guaranteed that the intellivision is pulled out at family gatherings at their place for raucous games of horse racing, bump & jump, burger time, thunder castle, etc, with all the grandkids taking turns. It is seeing this (along with the demonstrated passion, experience, and mindset shown by Tommy and team) that makes me confident the Amico with its SAFE principles can succeed.

confirmation of a date preferably within 2020. See some of the games that have been listed but without details i.e Lock N Chase and some of the Imagic remakes. Also would love to see a preview of the UI and perhaps a sneak peak at the online store.

Phew!!

Lots to catch up on!  Been prepping and filming for the August 4th Special Event the past 3 days.  I can't even begin to describe the amount of work involved by the entire team.  I can't wait to share a bunch of info on August 4th!

 

1AM here in California on Friday (Saturday morning officially I suppose)... will try to get through as many questions as I can before passing out (starting a bunch of editing with my team in a few hours!).

 

Lets begin!
