Submission + - Intellivision kept alive by hombrew devs (carolvsghost.com) 1

dzfoo writes: "The old Intellivision games console from the 1980s is still around, kept alive by a small band of dedicated programmers that continue development for the platform.

Just this week, and in time for the Holidays, a new game was released called "Christmas Carol vs. The Ghost Of Christmas Presents." This and other games released in the past few years, come complete in box, with glossy manuals and even hand-controller overlays, and are every bit as authentic as the ones released by Mattel "back in the day."

The Christmas Carol game made its debut at the Classic Gaming Expo 2012 in Las Vegas this August, and has been praised by even the Blue Sky Rangers themselves.

Other notable releases for the platform are: D2K Arcade, a fantastic rendition of the classic Donkey Kong arcade game; and Minehunter, a very good puzzle game in the style of Minesweeper.

The Intellivision home-brew community is even working on ports of such classics as Cinemaware's Defender Of The Crown and Apogee's The Lost Caves Of Kroz.

All these games are being produced with the highest of quality, by a very passionate community. This community may be small, but it is dedicated and resilient."

Submission + - Intellivision home-brew scene alive and kicking (carolvsghost.com)

dzfoo writes: "Move over, Atari and ColecoVision, the Intellivision home-brew scene is back in action! After more than a year in development, a new game for the Intellivision® system has been released. More than a "home-brew" game, Christmas Carol vs. The Ghost Of Christmas Presents is a labor of love, beautifully packaged in a "book" style box, complete with full-color glossy manual and retro-style cartridge shell. It is every bit as authentic as anything released "back in the day."

The game made its debut at the Classic Gaming Expo 2012 in Las Vegas this August, and has been praised by even the Blue Sky Rangers themselves.

Packed with whimsical charm and exciting arcade action, Christmas Carol offers fun for kids and adults alike, and is destined to become an instant classic!"
