New Atari Jaguar Homebrew - Neon Centipedez
« on: September 16, 2016, 22:24:36 PM »
Atari Age member Jeffrey_Bones  (Wave 1 Games) has announced a new game to be released for the Atari Jaguar with the title Neon Centipedez


Here is the latest update posted by Jeffrey_Bones:

* Shooting for a Christmas 2016 release
* The game will be a Centipede clone for the Jaguar with a very different style of neon graphics.
* It will be a CARTRIDGE RELEASE, however a Jaguar CD release is also being considered. (this will depend on size of either 2MB or 4MB) We are leaning towards cartridge only
* This will be a full release with box and instructions.
* There are currently 2 people working on the project me as the main coder and an art director and graphic design major.
* The first 20 copies will roll out at $79.99 in early December. after that there will be additional runs of 20 per demand
* We have more than 1 source to do the PCB boards (One of them is well known in the Jaguar scene now)
* We are considering doing the cartridge shells in different neon colors such as bright (XBOX like) green, pink, purple and electric blue This will be achieved through using a 3D printer

You can find them cheaper for what albert will sell them for probably as New old stock shells. He probably got the molds for a hefty price and needs to make back what he spent.

Currently you can get them for like 5 a piece roughly (just a guess here as i havnt seen recent pricing)

any more than this for a standard cart shell and its a rip off. Considering you can 3d print these yourself if someone puts an original into something like a makerbot and just replicates. But to each their own.

Not sure that would work since they want to make them in neon colors also.  I don't know that Al can make them in those colors.
