Atari 7800 Homebrew released in 2019?

Recommended Posts

This year for the 2019 Atari Homebrew Awards (co-presented by AtariAge) we've added the "Best Atari 7800 Homebrew" award category!!

 

Completed in 2019:

Rikki & Vikki by PenguiNet aka @TailChao - Retail Boxed Release in 2019

Baby Pac-Man by Bob DeCrecenzo aka @PacManPlus - Retail Boxed Release in 2019

Draker Quest II by Clark Otto aka @frankodragon - Video Released, Photo of Cart, Orders Being Taken for Cart

Merlain by gambler172 (Missed from list before nomination voting but developer doesn't want it added)

 

Works in Progress (with updates in 2019):

GoSub by Chris Read aka @atari2600land
Rider of the Night by @frankodragon

Dragon's Descent by Todd Furmanski aka @Revontuli

Cyb Ur by @SIO2

Death Merchant by Steve Engelhardt aka @Atarius Maximus
Frogus by @SIO2
Spire of the Ancients by @SmittyB

Arkanoid by Matt Smith aka @mksmith

 

1) Can anyone (or the developers) verify the "possibly released" three games above if they are completed in their current form?

 

2) Are there any other homebrews we missed for the 7800 that came out in 2019 (Jan 1st-Now) or are set to be released before the end of the year?

I just have to finish up a few things on GoSub. You forgot Arkanoid, though

 

Thanks for the update on GoSub, we'll be watching to see if it's completed by the deadline of Dec 31st for 2019!

 

Doesn't look like Arkanoid is going to make it for a 2019 release but you never know!

 

Ugh, doesn't look like I can edit the top post... I'll update the information here:

@ZeroPage Homebrew Hi James, no Arkanoid won't be finished before the end of the year - I haven't had much time the past few weeks to work on it due to my real job.  @atari2600land Thanks for the mention - good luck with GoSub 😀

That was completed before 2019 if memory serves. 

That's correct, it went on sale in the AtariAge store on (or around) Nov 4, 2018. Check this post by Al announcing it here:

Nice! Might wanna edit to say 12pm PT instead of 12am PT. Your graphic is correct, however. Cheers.

Thanks! Now to correct it in the 10 other places....

Sure thing. Ah, true! Btw it's also in the sentence the main announcement:  LIVE TOMORROW on ZeroPage Homebrew's Twitch stream starting at 12AM PT | 3PM ET | 8PM GMT) !

Thanks, noticed that one too just after the first edit. 🙂 12AM PT would be a terrible time of day for most of the Americas and Europe to watch.

Good stuff. Yes, agreed! Wouldn't have too many US-based viewers, that's for sure. Looking forward to it.
