Let's do what audacity games suggested and contact our favorite 2600 programmers

Recommended Posts

I emailed Howard Scott Warshaw today asking him to contact audacity about getting involved in a project.  This is our chance to have some great new games from our favorite atari devs. I'm going to go through my list of favorite games and send out some emails today. Let's do this!

Sounds like a perfect idea if you want to annoy them. :roll:

Maybe they don't know about the project. I think a simple email letting them know your interest and commit to purchase would be fine.

HSW got back to me already!

 

 
Hello, 
 
I just wanted to drop you a line and tell you that your atari games are some of my favorites. Have you talked with the folks at audacity games yet?. Anything you have your hands in would be a day one purchase for me and many others. Thank you for your time.

Hi Bill,
 
    Thank you so much, I really appreciate hearing this. I do know the folks at Audacity and may well talk to them about producing my Yars" Revenge sequel for which I have a complete design.  :)
 
    If you enjoyed my games, you would probably love my book: Once Upon Atari. Have you heard of it? If not, you have now. Please check it out.  ;)
 
Yars truly,  :)

Wow Yars' Revenge 2! I love Yars'. Al should ask if he can publish it.

Gosh, HSW's website made me cringe. Never meet you heroes, etc...

 

...(and definitely don't post entire emails with details online).

Um, I think Howard's unrestrained, endless promotion of his book is partially meant to be funny. He does that on Facebook too... that's how I took it...

Howard’s email address and phone number is on his public website, so I don’t think sharing it here will harm him in any way. His scary-sounding disclaimer is for patient information, not fun questions about video games. 
 

Yars 2! I guess the Return game from Flashback collections is a ROM hack, done by someone else?
