Happy 40th Anniversary Intellivision!

Recommended Posts

I checked Bing's "on this day" timeline this morning to see if there would be any acknowledgement.  Instead, it was talking about The Who concert disaster.  Oh well.  Yesterday it was about Enron in 2001.

Happy 40th Anniversary!

 

The first Intellivision consoles hit the store shelves in test markets on December 3, 1979, and the Intellivision enjoyed first-party support until 1990 (with the unreleased "Deep Pockets").  Intellivision Productions kept the Intellivision alive through the 1990s with their "Intellivision Lives!" and "Intellivision Rocks!" collections for the Mac and PC, and into the 2000s with the plug-and-play TV games and emulator collections for mobile platforms.  Now, at the close of the 2010s, we eagerly anticipate the Intellivision Amico in 2020.

 

Cheers to Intellivision for an impressive run!

It will be out in the Spring.

You mean Hunt the Wumpus?

I was just going to ask you about that!

Somebody actually wants a release of Hunt the Wumpus?  I've got a couple other projects in the pipeline before that, and then I'll want to clean up the code.  Plus I was thinking of adding the TI-99 port as a second game.  Mike Thomasson didn't like the idea of having a 2-in-1 cartridge with the "same game" on it twice though.
